Easter Sundays Feast, w/qview

Discussion in 'Pork' started by bayouchilehead, Apr 6, 2010.

  1. Today I smoked a ham, 2 fatties and some sausage. The temps were a little better but still not achieving 225 for very long. The best thing about practice is eating the end result......the worst thing about practicing is eating the results and getting too full. Again any suggestions are welcome. Now the qview.

    The Fattie being made. I filled it with yesterdays pulled pork, pepper jack, colby and monterey jack cheese.

    Right side of smoker temp near the firebox.

    Left side of smoker temp higher than the right.

    The whole meat feast.

    Fatties and Sausage.

    The Ham.

    The large Fattie crisped in the oven and then cut up.

    The small Fattie crisped in the oven and the cut up.

    Well thats it, till next time, keep smokin'

    Great qview. [​IMG] Excellent looking smoke. I take it the foil is over the baffle & not blocking your grills, right? [​IMG]
  3. That is correct.

    Looks great my friend....Are you getting plenty of air to yur fire??? How about your exhaust...Is important to play with your air intake and exhaust

    great work on those fatties.... I agree with eating and eating as the best and worst parts!
  7. Thanks for reminding me, that was the only thing I forgot to mention. I had both the intake and exhaust wide open for awhile and the temp never got above 225 for long. I plan on working with it this weekend some more.
  8. Have u built a fire box yet? I would also recomend taking ur exhaust to grate level.
  9. Yes I have a basket for the coals in the fire box and I have installed the 3 inch dryer duct to grate level. I also flipped the cooking g chamber coal tray over to even the heat distribution, which has worked well. It just won't get up to 225 and stay even when I supply a chimney of lit coals to try and boost the temp. I plan to make a baffle to try this weekend. I'm not through playing with yet, I'm having too much fun drinking beer and trying to figure it out. Thanks for the input.
