Been cooking butts since I got my first BGE three years ago. I lurked for a while and became very respectful of the danger of over-smoking food, especially with particular woods. I'm from North Carolina and we traditionally use hickory wood which can be a bit strong. On last weekends three butt cookI decided to abandon my bag of hickory chunks and threw on a decent sized split hickory log from my firewood pile. Great result. So here's my question: have any of you ever felt you over-smoked a butt?
