    Nice looking meat. What kind of smoker? What kind of wood are you using?

    I need to bust out of my apple wood rut.

    That's all I ever use on pork.

    Can't smoke without thermometer. Shooting for 200-203 degrees. Then wrap it up and place in cooler for an hour or so.

    Electric smoker seems to take the need to have remote temps away. Hold temp within 3 or so degrees in mild temps. Been smokin about a year now and the maverick 73 does the job. Want a charcoal smoker but I'm pretty lazy. Happy so far with electric.

    I lit the grill, forgot that I was on until I went outside to take a leak and then realized it was Like 500°. Threw some chunks of pork loin that I had sitting in soy sauce red pepper garlic, on there for a little while in the dark. With some corn and then went out five minutes later flipped it all over and then came back after a while later took it off it was delicious.

    Ha, I didn't see Mack's post about being old-school until I had posted mine.
