Well, here's the results of my first smoke. I made the atomic buffalo turds first, they turned out great. Took about an hour and a half at 250. I used hickory chips for these, and even though I don't have the chip insert they work just fine in the smoke box. Then I did two 10lb pork butts. Dry rubbed them, then rested for 12 hrs in the fridge. Started them at about 1am Sunday and they were done at 5pm, so about 16 hours! I had it set to about 235 degrees. When I woke up at about 8am they had hit 165 so I foiled them, then pulled them out at 198 degrees. Delicious! The smoker performed flawlessly, hard to imagine how you could mess it up with this thing it's so easy to use. Add a probe thermometer and you're set, it threads right through the smoke hole. It was also -11 celcius overnight and it had no problems keeping temperature. The box is amazingly well insulated, it does not get hot to the touch at all. All that flavour and only 4oz of wood, that's amazing. Clean up only took me 10 minutes or so too, I just let it cool off and then used a plastic scraper to get the fat off the bottom of the cooker and the drip pan. Scrubbed the racks, refoiled the bottom and it's good to go for next time.
