    Got the mes loaded down w/ cold meat and my temps took a nose dive .

    I kept it set at 270 and it was 260 or so when i loaded it. Temp dropped to 135 before recovering. Put the meat on at 6:30 pm Ribs sprayed w/ apple juice were done at midnite. (no foil) Brisket and butts both hit a stall .around 2:30 am and butts started up at 3:30 and brisket around the same.

    [​IMG]

    6:30 am Sun. Morning , The brisket hit 195 and the butts were arond 190?

    Pulled all the meat into foil and the ice chest and off to bed for a few hours.

    Great smoke & Qview Bob!

    I have a hard time shopping for meats at Sams without filling the cart too.  But then I figure if you are going to fire the smoker up, might as well fill it up!  Just like you did.

    You said this was the best smoke you have done -- what do you think made it so good?  Did you do something different?

    Great job!

    Yes i did two things different. Lately i have been mixing wood chip types .This time i went w/ all apple.

     and i came up w/ a new (to me) binder to hold the rub and a new rub.

     There is a wiki giving directions on making both.

    Looks great!  I'm surprised you had any ribs left after waiting for the rest of the stuff to finish.  It would have been rib-nap, rib-nap etc and then where's-the-ribs?-nap.  [​IMG]
