15, 20 whatever. I put enough in there for govment work. ;D

No smoke now. And guess what, temp dropped 15 degrees. Since I still had a little slide left, I jacked it(vents open!)

165 and holding. I've only looked once to refill the puck washer and it was looking pretty good. Right now I'm trusting my $20.00 Charbroil remote temp probe. Somehow my Maverick 7 came up missing in action. It may be where my last Blackberry went, into the Porta can at a bbq cook-off. (long story, but I did make $800.00 that weekend so I guess I can live with it.)

Hey I just mentioned 20 mins cause if yours aren't going that long then something might be wrong. Hope I didn't ruffle some feathers Ron.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

No feather ruffling here Q, I just know from experience that when a manufacture tells you something will last 14 minutes and 22 seconds, they are most likely going to be off a little..........

Plus. I think it would be hard to tell if you added smoke for 3.5 hours as opposed to 4.15 hours.

Don't write me off. I just processed that "something might be wrong comment." Crap, I didn't even think that the puck pusher might have a problem. Bad timing sending pucks drowning too early or too late.

Honest question:
Do I need to sit out there and time each puck to make sure it is dumping them at the right time????

But is at 175 after a 2 hour plateau. I MIGHT get to eat tonight.

Well. No BS. This butt was among the top ten I have cooked, including the 1st place one in a comp. OMG! I didn't even try to stab and jab this one, I just wanted to see what it would be like when done. Soooo. Here is a pic tour of the days experience.

In the Bradley just before taking it out at 190 IT.


Sitting with vultures waiting impatiently


The bone basically fell out as usual


Of course, the first one to taste got the prize



Pulled/fell apart


Served up on a warm onion bun


I just gotta say OMG!

Way to go Ronbeaux!  Looks great.  Reel 'em in boys, we just hooked another one.  This one's from Zachary Louisiana.

My friend from Lafitte LA just called.  He's going to the Saints/Falcons game tomorrow night.  I called him a really bad name and hung up on him.  :D

Ron, don't think you will have any problems mastering the Bradley.

That is a heck of a statement for the Bradley to be one of your finer butts you have smoke.

Nice pics.

Looks good Ron. So what temp did you cook at and how long did it take? I see you got your IT to 190. Did you FTC it at all?

Except for about 30 minutes, I held 245 degrees with 4 hours of pecan and hickory pucks mixed until the IT was at 190, 12.5 hours total time.
I only opened the door three times and each was only for a few seconds.

250 is my prefered temp for bbq so I was in my comfort zone and had no problems with needing to take a peek. I just trusted my temp probe. I have not checked the calibration on the Bradley door guage, but 12.5 hours is about right with my other pits holding that temp so the guage must be pretty close.

And yes, I'm hooked. All three treble hooks right in the lower lip. I just ordered180 pucks from Amazon.

Thats some nice looking bark on the butt, looks good pulled, I see you have some coleslaw under the pork. I'm going to have to try that some time, well some time I find some good tasting colslaw that is.
