First smoke.....

Discussion in 'Grilling Pork' started by remsp10, May 26, 2013.

  1. Got my new WSM all assembled and ready on Friday.  Seasoned up my pork butt last night and fired it up this morning.  Only a couple small issues with the first smoke.  Couldn't find my remote thermometer, so I just used the one on the lid though I know it isn't perfect.  Second issue was that I didn't put quite enough charcoal in for the entire smoke.  I had to add some for the last hour of the smoke.  All in all I call it a success, need to work on the rub a little bit but when you decide to season it at 11:30 at night you use what you can find.  I didn't get as many pictures as intended cause I was so focus on the task at hand.  I want to thank all you guys for you guidance and knowledge, it made my first smoke very enjoyable.

    Using the minion method getting it fired up.

    Here is a not so good picture of the finished product hitting the cooler.

    Looks good, nice thick Bark to mix in for a great smoke flavor.

    Have fun and . . .
  5. I had read this on your responses before and I just kept saying that to my self as I was trying to get the temp set at the beginning.....and then when I wanted to take the lid off to see what it looked like long before it was done.

    The pork was really good, had great smoke flavor but not too much.  I still need to work on the rub just a little bit but a great starting point in my opinion.  Thanks again for all the help guys!
  6. Looks great to me. That bark looks delicious, I can chew on that all day and be a happy camper.
