It was a great weekend for this cook, and nice to finally have a little down time :)
A few pics
I got a nice bag of Maple leaf for this cook

The Egg, cleaned and loaded

Used fishlessman's temp control method, works great!!

Shoulder on

After 18hrs, first peek :laugh:

A couple of more hours to bring it up to 195

Pulled and ready for some sammies
This turned out great, really like this cook.
Taking this into work, feel bad, a couple of days and I start a little vacation. :woohoo:
Poor guys won't eating to good for a while :laugh:

Thanks for looking

    That's a full load of lump. I thought you were only supposed to fill it up to where the fire ring starts. Am I wrong? Do others fill it up that much for a long cook?

    Also, approximately how much wood chips did you use and is it spread all through the lump?

    Shane cooked a whole shoulder. A similar cook for me went 32 hours. I always go at least that much for a long cook. What is leftover is just as good.

    Thanks Elizabeth
    This is my first bag of Maple Leaf that wasn't all small chips and dust.
    Bought it from a new supplier that doesn't kick the bags across the parking lot before putting them on the shelf :laugh:

    The guys at work are great for feedback, we are always feeding each other :)
