...smoking that is. I did my first smoke last weekend on my ECB. I did a small Boston Butt, and a fattie. Thanks to everyone who welcomed me, and answered my sometimes stupid pre-first smoke questions. The fattie would be chili-mac stuffed. I had made some chili a few nights before, and I mixed some of the leftovers with a box of Velveeta Shells and cheese. I par cooked the pasta thinking that it would continue to cook in the fat from the sausage (it did). Stuffed and rolled it. Bacon Wrap Ready to be wrapped and chilled. I started the butt a couple of hours earlier when I threw this in. It took a little less than 3 hours at 225. IMHO it looked, and tasted amazing. My first smoke was interesting. It went about how I planned except I found myself tending my coals more than I woul have hoped to. I was opening the door just about every hour to add some lump. For this reason, I had to pull the but off at 150 and finish it in the oven (after 7 hours for a 3.5 lb butt). I'm sure that opening the door so much had a lot to do with it taking so long to get to temp. It tasted great, but wasn't as tender as I hoped. I am sure that with some practice, I will dial in my fire, and everything else. One lone pic of the butt before the oven. Thanks for checking it out. I just dropped off a buck at the processor Sunday, so hopefully I will have some more Qview for you in the near future.
