Default First run of my new flower pot smoker

Many thanks to Jiggs Casey for first posting his terra cotta smoker tutorial, and to Sawdustguy for his help with the pulled pork recipe. I think the grill came out well, and the pulled pork even better.

The finished meat. My swmbo bought a small picnic instead of a full butt. But it still came out great.

The heat source is a 1000w Proctor Silex electric burner (bought at ACE hardware for about $15). The nice thing about this model is that it has a steel case, so I could leave it in it's original case without worries. I changed the wiring to bypass the control switch and hooked it to an Auber controller for electric smokers. It holds the temp within a couple degrees very well.
