Default Whiskey Barrel Smoker and a Picnic

Well, today is the first cook on the WBS (Whiskey Barrel Smoker). I will be plugging her in shortly and adding the meat in a while. I'll add pics in a bit. Wish me luck!

Oops.. I'm cooking a 9 lb. Picnic. Injected and rubbed last night. Here's a pic. The smoke stack is just a temp. Still trying to come up with an idea for that.

How are you bringing fresh air into the unit? With that size flue it wants some. Steve.

I have a 2 inch hole in the bottom that allows air in and the cord out. Right now the flue is two inches. I'm getting good smoke out.

what would be a sweet chimney is 18or 16ga square tube. but then cover it with a box made out of aged wood. on the wood use a small torch to burn the grain a little. or get a wood burner to right your name or fav whiskey on the side

Nice cooker. +1 on the chimney. Using drier vent on that cool rig is not the cherry on the sundae.

Well aware that the dry exhaust tube is pretty darn ugly, but I wanted to try it out and I know all of you wanted to know how it does. So I'm sacrificing my honor by posting incomplete pictures... :)

Well it has been on since 8:00 and is at the moment measuring 162°... Seems like it is right on schedule.

Well, back to the drawing board. Would not move the meat above 170° after 11 hours. I'm not disappointed. It is always good to learn something new and doing it to gain experience. I finished it in the oven and it is now resting. I will pull it in a while. Pics to follow. Not sure if I hurried it, it was only 55° out today. I know the empty barrel can reach 260° and hold steady. Not sure if the weather played a roll or if the meat did.

Any advice?

What was the temp in the cooker? Sounds like you hit a stall. They can be a real pain.

I only have one probe and it was in the meat. The thermometer in the barrel was reading 220°. When I was testing the barrel yesterday, There was about a 30° difference between the probe and the thermometer. I figured it was a stall, but I have never dealt with one before and it was going on 11 hours... I could have waited it out and pushed on into the night.
