    I think the wrap cooked faster. Probably about the same

    I saw this a few weeks ago and, if I am alive, it's my life goal. Let me preface this by saying it's cool as fuck but I don't need the smoker functionality of this, I just want the wood fire oven. That said still cool as fuck and something I would like to play with eternally.

    i’ve wanted a 250 gallon for a while now and figured fuck it now’s the time

    i’ve gotten enough positive feedback from parties to fairytale football drafts and whatever else i’ve cooked for, that i think i can cook for more than just my family

    thinking i’ll dip my toes in the catering world

    I literally studied designs of pits on line and in person for probably 15 years from the late 90's till I finally built mine in the early 2000's
    There are still things I would change on mine if I could, but I love it and it cooks awesome

    oh and finished porky goodness

    probably could’ve let her ride a little longer unwrapped for better bark but the flavor was spot on

    Cooked a pork butt this weekend. Wife wanted to go hiking when it was at 160, so when i came back an hour and half later, the stall was already over and it was at 190-195. Was sweating it the entire hike since I had invested half my day into it already

    Didn’t have everything for PSB so audibled to pulled/shredded beef with horseradish cream. Three hours on the smoke, three hours in the oven. It was delicious.

    Most of the smoke ring is made in the first three hours. Meat stops taking smoke at 140.

    There's no time or temp limit on smoke absorption (as far as smoke flavor goes)...but yeah the visual smoke 'ring' completely stops growing at around 170.

    Edit: Will document the drunken journey of prep work etc.

    Cut about 1.5 lb off the flat so I can grind into hamburger meat in the morning since I can’t find any at the stores. 18.7 lb packers trimmed to about 16.5 lbs.
