Picked up this 8.5lber for my first pulled pork smoke. All rubbed up and sitting in the fridge for the AM. I'm going to fire up the MB XL40(propane) around 6AM and get it up to 240. I plan on pulling when the IT reaches 200. Not going to foil and I think I'm going to spritz the butt with Jack Daniel's winter jack. Using a combo of hickory/apple chunks with sand in the water pan. Can't wait to get started!!
