Well GEM, I'm glad that you had great luck and were happy with the results. I guess the finished product speeks for itself. But I still struggle with the fact that it took 21 hours at a 225f setting to reach a internal temperature of 195f. I guess I'm missing something. I'dl cook it that long if necessary, but I'd be awful I would be tempted to move the thermostat up a tad. But then again, I'm pretty new at this smoker set-up.
