I have been a visitor to the site often but this is my first post. I started with a 4 pounder this morning and the anticipation is killing me! I have a Sidney R. Pig replica: http://www.ibiblio.org/lineback/bbq/sid.htm that I just built and I've had a couple of fires in it but this is the first smoke. Currently have her pegged at 250 degrees and a good fire in the hearth for coal transfer. I do have a question. When should I turn the butt? I was thinking a little after halfway but will listen to the good advice I always read from you all. Hope your weekend is treating you well.
