First off, if this post is in the wrong place please let me know and I'll be glad to correct any mistake. Having said that, I decided to experiment with my Holland Grill this weekend and attempt to smoke a 5-6lb butt. Admittedly, my expectations were very low. I used their hickory flav-o-buds (how lame??) for smoke. Took it to 200 before foiling and putting in cooler for an hour. Total cooking time about 4-5 hrs. Contrary to my expectations, the butt turned out great and everyone was thrilled with the results. I slept late, the butt was still ready by kickoff, the whole place smelled of hickory smoke, and nobody questioned my cooking methods after tasting the results. Certainly will NEVER give up the Royal Oak smoker but I can say my Holland surprised me....and saved my a** this time!
