Cold Butt Cook

19* out and I decided to use the WSM to cook a couple butts on to fill an order for pulled pork. I haven't cooked butts on the WSM since last Springs Smoke on the Beach. So I loaded it up with KF and Hickory chunks and firebricks in the fire pan which I've been using for the turkey cooks and they work fantastic. I've included a pic for you Cliff or anyone else who wants to see.

Do you notice a big difference in temps using the bricks instead of sand?
Butts are looking good.

No difference really Puff, you just never have to worry about replacing the bricks like you would sand or spillage.

Link they may work, but lava rocks aren't very dense so I think they wouldn't produce as much radiant heat.

Larry, when did you start doing this? You cover em with foil? Is there
enough concave area to hold grease?

I started doing it when I realized I was out of sand..... Works the same and yes there is a concave for grease.

That sounds like it would work great! If your using a guru, they tell you to put strips of foil in the pan to help disipate the heat. I'd bet the lava rock would work even better!

I think I've replaced the sand in mine...once since I've had it. Now it's like glass.
