    Well todays the day, after putting it off for way to long I'm going to make a 5 pound brisket and around 10 pounds of pork picnic shoulder. Ive got everything in the smoker and its at around 235* and holding pretty steady. I'm using hickory and just a little bit of it at a time. I may run down to Kroger and get some apple chips. Ive got the brisket and pork injected with creole butter and apple juice, brisket is rubbed down with a beef rub and I just went with CBP,salt,garlic and onion powder on the pork.

    Q view to follow.

    Well I just checked on the meat and sprayed with apple juice, temp is at 133* and holding steady. Pork is at 258* I'm going to take it to 165* then foil and take to 190-200*. The more I use the GOSM the easier it gets. Qview will be taken and posted before I foil the meat.
    Stay tuned.[​IMG]

    If your pork is at 258, it's way overdone![​IMG] I realize your fingers were outpacing your thinking. Never happens to me.[​IMG] Looking forward to seeing some Qview.

    I cannot seem to get the juice you do. Mine always seem to get dried out a little more than that. Great looking Qvue. [​IMG]
