Second long smoke....so far GOOD!

Recommended Posts

hello, I'm fixing two more Boston butts for a family reunion. I had issues on my first cook, so took a little advice (set up like my UDS) and changed my setup. I did the volcano method by lighting one piece of lump in middle and cover up. I opened the bottom vent all the way and top vent on three until I Hit 150 degrees. At that point, I put the top vent on .8 and allowed only one bottom air hole to show.

I also wrapped my lava stone in aluminum, used both grates, placing a half steam pan on the bottom grate with water and apple juice. So far, temp ran mostly at 255 and has now settled in at 266 for several hours.

I'm five hours into the cook and it looks/smells great! I'll try to post a few pics later!

Thank you all again for the much needed advice on the Kamado!

Blessings, Mike
