Hi, I have been lurking around this site for a week or so, and posted about a recent pork butt failure. I appreciate all of the feedback, I look forward to reading about everyone's experiences and learning from this site. I currently live in Kansas City, which is kind of ironic since KC is known for its BBQ, but I have not mastered smoking a pork butt to make pulled pork. From an experience level ... I purchased my first smoker about four years ago (CharBroil) and recently acquired a Smoke Hollow 4-in-1 that I have recently modded. In the past four years, I have smoked (successfully); whole chickens, bacon wrapped shrimp, pork chops, chicken breasts, lots of pork loin, salmon, etc. Thanks again for all of the feedback!
