Re: WSM Pork Butt weekend

They look perfect ! Great job....

I'm trying to decide whether to use water in the pan or not, haven't done enough in my WSM yet to decide which way to go, did you use water?

Re: WSM Pork Butt weekend

Thx Nope never tried water I went right to sand, I always liked the way sand held heat and also does not need to be refilled, Sand with dry heat I think gives better Bark and color. But alot of people use water or empty pans all together just my 2 cents lol

Nice looking pulled pork. For what it's worth, I use water in the pan on my 22" WSM for low and slow cooks. If I'm doing a faster cook at a higher temperature, 300 degrees or more, I just foil the pan and leave it empty. I've never had to add water during a cook up to 10 hours.

Thanks Lew, I'm always looking to improve my cooking; like to try different things, anything to produce the ultimate, smoked chunk of meat I did read that having water in the pan will help keep the temp lower and steadier; I don't know , I guess I just have to keep smoking to figure out what works best for me
