    I'm doing a 9 pound Pork butt today for my first smoke.
    Using hickory and mesquite chips. Hope all goes well.

    Good luck!

    Pork butt is pretty forgiving & hard to screw up.

    I don't foil mine I just let the smoke roll until they hit about 205, or until the bone will wiggles free.

    You can check for doneness with a toothpick or probe.

    It should slide in with little to no resistance in several places.
