    When cooking pork butts for pulled pork, will higher temp ( 295F vice 225F) cook butts faster and still achieve tender pulled pork? Friend said he smoked two 11 pound butts and it took him only 10 hours. Only assumption I have is that he used higher temp. My two 5 lb butts took about 15 hours at smoker temp of 225F with final meat temp of 200F.

        Bruce, I second the Maverick ET-732. It works great. It isn’t intuitive for me to program but I watched a youtube presentation and then it was fine.

    Jeff – Purchased your sauce and rub recipes and tried both out on barbecue ribs using your 3-2-1- method. The ribs were fall off the bone delicious, the rub was fantastic and the barbecue sauce is the best I have ever tasted. New to smoking world but with the help of your web-sight and your book, and the free course, I have learned a lot about smoking and recipes in a short period of time. Thanks for having this web-sight available to us. Happy smoking to all.

    Anybody use a pellet smoker. I’ve been a stick smoker with BGE and Weber Rocky Mountain for ever but thinking about making the leap to a pellet grill/smoker such as Cookshack PG500 or Yoder YS 640. Anyone want to comment?

    • Shannon Stebbens says

      I recently acquired a Yoder YS 640 pellet smoker and could not be happier with the product. It works exactly as advertised. Extremely high quality and holds temperature perfectly. The folks at Yoder are great to do business with as well.

      I dont think birch would be good there is a lot of pitch in the bark and may also be in the wood. Most hardwoods will work. Burn some and smell it and then ask yourself if you want your meat to taste like it smells

    I love your newsletter. In fact, I have recently been using them to plan my weekend cooking, such as your most recent newsletter for the smoked pork tenderloin on a stick. I made a slight change to how I put them on my Big Green Egg, I used a grill basket with the onions on the bottom, and stacked the sticks on top of the basket above the onions. Turned out great! 

    Keep up the good work.

    your Q&A email was great, definitely keep it going, and here is a quetsion for you:

     

    Jeff thanks for the great recipes and your newsletter. I am a new BBQ smoker and I am learning temps and just how much woodchips and how often I need to replenish. I recently purchased Smoke Hollow 38 inch propane smoker.

    My question is in regards to the quantity of wood chips to use and how often to replenish them. I have cooked a lot of different types of foods and experimented with apple, cherry, pecan, mesquite and hickory. I usually use a 50/50 combination of fruit + either hickory or mesquite. I have mesquite to be a little too strong.

    I think I am using too much quantity of wood chips and I think I have over-smoked a turkey when I cooked it last week. Do you have a recommendation on how much and when I should replenish(how long do they last) my wood chips for the following meats below. Also do you soak your chips prior to putting them in your smoker? Thanks so much for everything you do.

    Pork Shoulder    (5-8lbs)

    how much wood and how often to replenish, and what is your recommendation on woodchips

    Chuck roast       (4-6lbs)

    how much wood and how often to replenish, and what is your recommendation on woodchips

    Ribs               (3-4 racks)

    how much wood and how often to replenish, and what is your recommendation on woodchips

    Brisket              (4-7lbs)

    how much wood and how often to replenish, and what is your recommendation on woodchips

    Turkey          (10-14 lb)

    how much wood and how often to replenish, and what is your recommendation on woodchips

      Hi Jeff.

        When I smoke anything I take into consideration who is eating. I use as much smoke as I think my guests will enjoy. I also make sure the heat is correct for what I am smoking. I use mild wood and make sure the smoke is steady and vented for good circulation.  Bill

      The book is back ordered right now but we should have more books in a few weeks. Christmas sales were crazy and took everyone by surprise apparently. When they do come in, you should be able to find them at almost any bookstore and if they do not have any in stock, they will be able to order it for you.
