Pork Butt & Baby Backs with Smokenator 1000

Discussion in 'Grilling Pork' started by jaguarjim, May 22, 2011.

  1. Okay, yesterday I did the test run with the Smokenator 1000 and got a good feel for it, so today is the first cook with it.  I had coated a 4.7 lb pork butt and two racks of baby back ribs with rub and placed into ziplock bags to sit overnight.  At 05:30, the grill was up and ready to go so onto the grill they went.

    I will update with Q-view as the day goes along but for now, here's the shot after the first 30 minutes:

  3. Each hour, I have added a few briquettes to the smokenator after knocking off the ash with the poker.  I then added a handful of apple chips (dry) on top of the coals in each of the side openings of the smokenator.  I topped off the water pan with Apple Juice. 

    After 2 1/2 hours, the baby backs were looking good enough to foil, so that is what I did.  They were placed back onto the grate after foiing.  Here's the Q-view:

    Looking good!!

  8. So far so good.  After nearly 9 1/2 hours, I got the butt at 205 degrees.  It is now resting in the cooler along with the baby backs.  Going to be some good eating tonight.  I'll post some more pictures once I unwrap them.
