I know it has to be different if you are smoking tri-tips compared to shoulders. From what I have been reading it seems like its about a pound per hour. Would this be a good estimate?
A pound an hour is a good place to start I guess. There are a lot of variables to consider though. Outdoor temp. Wind. Humidity. Volume of meat. etc.... Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
