I can't tell what the meat is for sure but I bet that Acorn will do a great job on it.

Well its 4 in the morning and a balmy 17 degrees out when I lit the smoker.First thing I noticed is the winds changed and the smokes not leaving the shed

Its getting foggy in here


A half hour and a little smoke inhalation later the grills about 200 degrees.Its cold enough out the digital drops to about 153 in the couple seconds its out of the smoker before it goes back in the meat.


Cooking about 265 right now and seems to have quit going up as i shut the vents down, time to let it go and see what happens.Down side is its way to early to start drinking beer as i watch the smoker so its coffee for now

5 hours in should be in the stall now, took a quick peek and decided not to foil these as I prefer a little bark and theyre cooking pretty well as is, grills still holding steady about 155-160 and the IT is about 169, not a great pic as my lense fogged up out in the cold as soon as I opened the lid and I didnt notice

Leave your lid shut Monitor the temps with the probs in the meat and for the pit Did you really mean your temp is 155-160 if so you need to open the vents some Looking good so far

HAHA, how bout 255-260 that sound better, got up to early I guesse.

Im using the probe, but like I said I never used this particular smoker before for butts and wasnt sure if I needed to foil them or not so I took a peek to make sure nothing was turning black that wasnt supposed to be

If it works like the BGE, you can take off the dome vent and shine a flashlight down onto the meat to visually check it. No need to open the lid.
