Well, I got my 008 this week and took a big risk and invited 2 families (11 total) over for ribs 'n such last evening for the 1st meat out of the box.

Picnic in the backyard, great side dishes prepared by all - great evening...just a little pressure. In fact one family had experienced my Brinkman/Water ribs which were always great....The pressure was definitely ON!!

The ribs were the HIT...amazed at how moist and flavorful they were.

On a roll...Immediately after dinner, I stuffed 2 Bostons in the CS to cook overnight. I think I'm going to like this!

Thanks to all of the great insights on the board. It's easy to be an apprentice with such knowledge and enthusiasm.

Jim, I've never over-smoked a butt and went as much as six oz hickory. Might bump iit up a tad next time.

I don't understand how your butt could have been dry. Did you open the door at all during the cook?

Have you checked your probe for accuracy? Smoked many a butt here and never had one dry.

Go over the details of your smoke. Maybe we can help ya out.

I will check that probe for accuracy. It is a new electronic one and this was my first experince with it. Do you have a recommendation for verifying accuracy?

Jim -- Test the high and low. Water boils at 212˚ and water freezes at 32˚. Boil a pan of water and check it out. Stick your probe in a glass of crushed ice or press it into an ice cube and it should read 32˚.
