    Looks great...I have not smoked a butt yet, but plan to next weekend for the 4th...

    I have a question for ya...does the wood chunk holding your thermo mess with the temp? Thats a great idea and I may have to just borrow it from you...

    Good luck, look forward to some qview later!!!
  4. No, the probe sticks far enough through the wood that it dosen't effect the temps. Just a cheap way to keep it off the metal grate. It works good, give it a shot.

  8. Cool, my first points. Thanks 1894
  9. Here we are at 7 hours. It's stalled at 159. Is this typically where the plateau happens??

    for me its been in the 140 - 165 range, when you take it out to foil it it will probably slow down on ya a little too. you were'nt plannin on having an early dinner were you. he he

    I think your plateau is generally between the 140-150 mark. If you stick at 159 for too long, and if ya plan to foil at 160, ya just might say "CLOSE ENOUGH! This ain't an exact science! Looks great so far though!

    looking good!!! nice meetin u on chat i guess call it this am!!!
  15. Yeah it's the right pic. I just got done spritzing it before I took the picture so it looks a little wierd. I don't have a ton of bark but there is some.

    You too erain, I'm not usually up that late. I was pretty foggy getting up this morning to put this on. LOL
  16. 155-159* took forever for me as well. Even had a 2* drop after it hit 157*...

    Looking good there! Can't wait to see the finished shots.
  17. Just checked yours out. Looking good. I'm still stalled. Temp hasn't budged. Oh well, I'm still having fun with it.
  18. Ok, we're moving again. Stalled at 160 for almost 3 hours [​IMG] . Foiled er up at 165 and temps are now continuing to inch up. We might eat tonight yet [​IMG] . Here are some pics right before going in the foil. The bark developed nicely during the stall.
