  1. This was the result of my first cook, a 9 lb pork butt… The cook ended-up taking about 14 hours at 250°. The temperature got up to 194° before it began to drop due to the fire dying down. (I think I need to add even more charcoal next time!) I was very pleased with the technical outcome of the cook, but not as much with the flavor. I marinated in Salt Lick marinade for 23 hours, then rubbed in McCormick Montreal Chicken seasoning. Also, I wish I could have gotten to a higher internal temp to render-off a little more of the fat. I hope one day to be able to emulate the flavor of Gordo's on Hwy 290 west of Austin.

    Thanks for the nice welcome, everyone. I'm going to try my first cook tomorrow. I got a 9 pound pork butt from HEB today, and I'm going to use the KJ charcoal I bought with my cooker. FWIW, the Costco in Cedar Park will be continuing the KJ special event through Sunday (3/29). The purchase is a bundle including a cover, and a box of starter.

    Hi. My name is Stephen. After two years of convincing my wife (and after her having several delectable home smoked brisket meals at friends' and family's houses), I finally got the okay. I purchased a new Kamado Joe Classic this weekend. I've got very little experience cooking over charcoal or wood, and no experience with smoking. Most of our outdoor cooking has been over gas grills. I am really looking forward to learning how to use this, though!
