First butt on new smoker with Q-view

  1. Woke up at 5 am and fired up the lil smoker. Pulled out the butt that had been rubbed the night before and put it on at 220. I was reading a post on here where someone had kept a temp log and thought that was neat so im going to do that for this smoke. Even had the little guy wake up at 6 to see what I was doing.





    Will update with temps and pictures as it comes along.

    You are off to a great start - keep the qview coming 
  6. Still chugging along. Beans are done and butt is looking great. 171 right now. Hit the stall wall at 147-148 for about 1 1/2 hr

    I started with that same little smoker. I hope you've calibrated that stoke therm? Served & still is serving me well.

    Your smoke is looking mighty fine also. Beans look great!!
  8. I tested it against the digital one it was within 1-2 degrees. But this butt is taking forever.
  9. Low temp for the stall?

    Patience, you will be rewarded.

    Good luck and good smoking.
