  1. Well here I go. Heating up the smoker as I write this. Gonna smoke my first butt's for Sunday's dinner with the family. I decided to try two for the first time. Wish me luck.

    They'll be great, enjoy your smoke
     
  3. It's been at least 45 minutes since I cranked up the GOSM smoker, and it's only up to 182. Guess the 48 degree weather is holding the temp down. Just have to be patient.[​IMG]

  5. Got the meat up to 61 degrees! Only 105 degrees to go before I wrap them.[​IMG]

    The dreaded plateau (sp?) is on the way. Be patient and don't crank the smoker temp up. It will start to climb if you just hold the smoker temp steady.

    I'm doing my first butt tonight too. Supposed to be -13 tonight. EEEEEEK!! Good luck!
     
  8. The IT temp is now at 115. Just sprayed it with applejuice mixed with Captain Morgan's spiced rum. I started smoking by doing ribs first. Guess I was a little backwards since this is my first B. butt.
     
  9. Only supposed to drop down to 38 here tonight, but down to 27 tomorrow night. That's why I picked today.
     
  10. The Butts are at 197. Will pull them at 205, wrap them in towels, and put'em in a cooler for 2 hrs..[​IMG]
