Here is my first try with the smoker. A pork butt. I liked the finished look with the 'crust'. I also saved the juice and chilled it for future use. The meat shredded easily, but I thought it was a tad dry but was delicious with the sauces I made. My next attempt will be with ribs/baby backs....thought I'd try doing them together. Not a lot of flovor from the hickory wood chips so I am going to follow advice and get the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER.
