    Ok. It's a nine pounder. It's a biggie.
    I had to go Julia Child on this thing to get through the bone. Five pounds is gonna meet the heat and four pounds is gonna meet the deep freeze for another time. I five lb souls be enough for five people. In thinking a ten hour cook time.

    Rub is on an its on the smoker at 4:40am. Smoker temp is at 240. Going to monitor and adjust dampers as needed. Top damper fully open and bottom 3 at about one third open.


    No leaks

    Temp spike to 270. Close bottom dampers to one quarter open and close top damper to three quarters open.

    Temp went down to 230 in no time.

    I couldn't ask any more out of the temp control. I opened the top dampers to ful and it instantly went up to 240.

    Ok. Nodded off for about an hour. Went out to check and it is still cruising along at 230. Internal meat temp is at 140. That's moving kinda fast but it still has to hit the stall. Still a lot of time left. 3 hours in. Still smoking.

    Just had to do a charcoal and weld reload. About 3.5 hours in. All the wood was burned and about 5 percent of charcoal was left. Just enough to restart scale method. IT is climbing fast. 153.

    Before the mods this thing would do nothing I asked it to. Now it obeys me.

    I think at 4 hours I am at the stall. It has been sitting at an IT if 154 for some time now.

    Seven hours in IT 180. I think I broke through the stall. Smoker holding steady at 250. I'm not going to foil. No more smoke now, all heat.
    I couldn't be more pleased. Maximum bark.

    Nine and a half in. IT 196. Smoker at 235. I'm tempted to take it out and foil for 30 min cooler rest.
