It's 16F in Milwaukee and my Weber Smokey Mountain has been holding a rock steady 275 deg since 5:00 a.m. Totally manageable with a windscreen and a full water pan.

Definitely pork butt or shoulder first time out. Maple, apple and hickory, any combination.

Get a couple of port butts and make pulled pork. Easy and everyone likes it.

BTW, yours won't look like OldDirty's. Yours will have several dents from where the tongs slipped and took a piece out of that bark there (which then serendipitously landed in your mouth). It's the cook's tax.

I just read the discussion of 3-2-1, and although I'm sure it works, I don't see a need to do all that extra wrapping etc. As far as other methods, I will say that 1) I think some of the best smoked meat does come from lump charcoal, but 2) I love the set-n-forget ease of a gas smoker. Simply load up, and if you get busy brewing, send any untrained monkey down to the smoker to re-load chips a few times through the cook time.

This photo was a month ago. I went from bacon wrapped tenderloin to a blanket on top, and finally, this weekend, bacon smoked separately from the loin. It seemed that not quite enough smoke soaked into the meat when wrapped in bacon. This weekend's loin didn't survive long enough for a picture.

Oddly enough, I make another smoked meat concoction that is wrapped in bacon, yet gets a perfect smoke ring. It goes for a couple hours longer than a loin, so maybe the extra exposure does the trick?

Pork shoulder/Boston Butt for the first time. Its pretty hard to screw up and is forgiving to temp going all over the place while you dial in the cooker.
