This is the only way to start the egg. A little under 1/2 of a chimney full.

Here is all the wood I'm using for smoke. It is a piece of live oak with the beer for size comparison (and drinkin).

    Good luck. I did a tenderloin last night (yum) and have a 9 lbs loin in buckboard bacon cure.
  • Back in the picture bisness! Here is the oak added.

    And finally add the little darlins, pork loins. 4 pounds apiece, one with Jamacian Firewalk rub and the other with Shakin' The Tree.

    Close the lid, present temp just under 200, and time for another beer. I will bump up the temp to 250 for an hour, 5:22pm

  • Well dang. Now I 'm not sure what to do. The plan was to smoke lightly for an hour around 250. which is what I did. Then bump up the temp to 350 and finish it off.

    The picture is after one hour exactly, I flipted them over, dome temp was at 258, internal temp is already at 117. Now i'm unsure if I should bump up the temp to 350 because they look so good now. Any ideas?

    I already did a butt - turn out great btw now I'm trying a loin.

    There's lots of help here on the forum.
  • Cool, thanks.

  • Too late. I just checked the internal temps and one was 142 and the other was 152.
    Total cook time was a little under 1 1/2 hours! They are resting in foil right now so I will send a picture in a few minutes.
