Since I'm new, thought I'd share what I've been up to...,
Monday 5/20: chicken breasts and veggies w steamed corn. Chicken was low n slow on 2nd-4th generation coals smoke was almond shells. Brined em for a bit the day before. Moisture was just water and soy sauce. Brushed a few times w olive oil n spices.



Mother's Day Boston butt. 16hrs
Black specs are smoked garlic that got a little over done.





Last week thighs and taters. W veggies







Hot n quick NY strip w veggies

It was my first overnight cook. Didn't know what the hell I was doing but turned out very nice. I got up a few times during the night to tend to the coals.  Tried to keep at 250-270 but dropped to 200 or so once and almost got away to 300 + for a min but got it back. Took about 14.5 hrs to get to temp then I threw it in a cooler for remainder. Fun but a bit stressful for a rookie.

Long overnite cooks are probably the easiest to get the hang of......take the least amount of practice.......keep at it & ENJOY !!!!!

PS: Looks pretty dang good from over here !!!!

Pork Butt is a good first long cook subject. It's pretty tolerant of a range of temperatures so you will not spoil it if temperatures go a little high or low at some point. Glad to hear it came out good.

Did you add charcoal during the cook or use something like the ring of fire techniques? I did spare ribs on my son's kettle and used one charcoal basket. I had to add charcoal about every hour to keep it going.
kettles, smokers...

It was definitely a learning experience.
I started w 2 baskets unlit w extra coals between them then added a few hot coals to the outer unlit ones. Was working well until the inner basket lit and got too hot. I removed the basket in a 3am panic, started some more in a chimney and just kept adding as I went  I'm sure I looked like an idiot scrambling around. Didn't tell the family who were eating their fingers and groaning that I was a mess the whole time.
 Half asleep note lid on ground panic light. :) I did keep notes the entire time, next one should go smoother.
