  1. Cooked my first pork butt on Sunday. Followed Philpom's directions for low slow fire, but started a few medium size lumps in chimney. Got them started, and once no longer flaming, put them in the center with the not lit around it. Kept the cooker at 250-265 for six hours. Then even took it up and baked some sweet potato fries. Next day, noticed not much lump used. Amazing. I have jb welded the ash pan seam and also rtv caulked the around the air vent.
  2. I like to run, sell stuff on eBay, and photography.
  3. Love Papa Murphy's! I will for sure be trying that.
  4. Maybe that was it. I will check that out next time. Thanks!
  5. Seems like everyone uses mavericks. I thought there may be more choices. Thanks everyone for your input.
  6. I am looking for a new thermometer that monitors oven temp as well as food temp. One that withstands high heat, as well. My current one registers to 391, then shuts down. These are the features I am looking for, but if there are other attributes you find important, I would like to hear them as well. Thank you all.
  7. Was having a great weekend. I cooked delicious hamburgers, tried another pizza which was pretty good, and cooked bacon for bfast that turned out flat and perfectly brown and crisp. But then came Sunday. I was going to cook my first whole chicken. I marinated it for 7 hours, was putting it on a beer can holder, had plenty of lump, had the temp at 300. After an hour and a half, it just wasn't getting to the temp. It read about ten degrees less, around 150. Could not figure it out. So took it in the house to finish it in the oven. Got it to about 180, but when I carved into it, still pink areas. I was so sad because it was in random places. It was frustrating. I had a beautiful glaze I put on it when it seemed to be nearing the temp. Would love to hear your thoughts or ideas on what went wrong. Thanks all.
  8. I also have the Bed Bath n Beyond one. Only made one pizza, but worked just fine. It was around $9.
  9. I actually was happy to experience less smoke than a charcoal grill. I've read various woods produce more and less smoke. For example hickory I think it is, produces more smoke.
