Made my first pulled pork today. One problem, never got to the point where it was pulled pork. I was following the directions in the "How to Grill" book. I guess I missed understood the directions. I was using my new cookmaster, and in reading the directions for smoking I understood it to say would take 6-8 hours. Recommended size was 5-7 LBS. I had 6 LBS. So I figured about 7-8 hours. Imagine my furstration when at 10 hours still not close to195. Plus not to mention my wife asking if I knew what I wasing doing. So I pulled it off saying the heck with it I'm done going to eat it as is and not planning on trying that again anytime soon. But much to my suprise when I cut it and tried it it was very good just not to pull apart point yet. Definitly encouraged me to try it again (smaller roast next time though).
I guess in rereading the recipe maybe it means 6-8 hours in addtion to the 4-6 hours in the recipe. Does that sound about right? But that wasn't how I read it. But will definitly try it again.
One additional note heat control was a breeze with this unit.
Stay tuned to the next saga of the Newbee
