    My name is Hugh and I'm 83. I retired from DOD after 34 years of service. My job started with working with electronics but was promoted to management.

    Obviously I've been BBQing for some time and I'm still learning. My previous smoker was the offset firebox style. One time I smoked pulled pork for 54 people for a party at my home. I just purchased a 14.5 WSM and have several cooks on it.

    I have completed a cart for the WSM and I'm now starting a DIY project for temperature control using a PID.

  4. Welcome, Hugh.  I did a pork butt with South Carolina mustard BBQ sauce a few weeks back and turned leftovers into Carolina hash.  Would be curious to see your feedback on my recipes/methods.  If you're interested I can direct you to my thread.

    It looked good to me. I think you could have used more smoke but if it taste good that's what counts.

    My cook was for 34 lbs and followed the Smoke and Spice book The Renowned Mr. Brown. Smoked with Oak logs for fuel. I smoked for 18 hours at approximately 220 degrees.
