Pork butt is probably THE most forgiving piece of meat out there.Funny this thread has re-emerged as I've decided to dip my toes into the smoking waters. I just bought a Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn and a chord of Hickory. I'll be doing my seasoning of the smoker this Wednesday and looking forward to my maiden smoke that afternoon. Still pondering what meat to smoke and leaning towards something forgiving if there is such a thing. Have a couple of mods on order from Horizon…diffuser plate and a charcoal basket.
And congrats on the longhorn. Stick burners take extra work but having fun with fire is the pull for those babies
