These are also called a Smokey Joe Platinum.
When they were first introduced in 1990-91, they were referred to as an Outrider.
I replaced the original worn-out wooden handle with a custom mahogany handle.

It originally looked like this before I cleaned it up.




Now, this:




This was my very first time using it since rescuing it late last summer.

I wanted to try the snake / fuse method to see how it would perform.

This is my go-to charcoal when I do a snake.
It provides a nice long, and consistent burn.




I used some apple and cherry wood for smoke. Also some small pieces of lump scattered throughout the snake.
I made a foil bowl of sorts for the middle. A good friend gave me the idea of also putting some foil by the intakes to help direct airflow.
I lit 8 briquets and started the fuse.








After preheating for about 20 minutes, I put on a 5 lb butt rubbed with some generic pulled pork seasoning from a bulk food store.




I don't normally monitor the temperature of my kettles, but in the case of a trial, I like to see what I'm working with.

After 30 minutes, the reading was at 280°. I didn't tinker with the vents.
For the duration of the cook, one intake was fully open, and the other was closed. The lid vent was fully open as always.








For the balance of this cook, the cooker settled in the 325-350° range. That was fine with me.

After 4 hours, I got an IT reading of 172°. I decided to let it go for 2 more hours.
After a total of 6 hours, it was reading 210° ….. Yeah, I'd better remove it, now. Smile Smile






I let it rest for one hour, and then shredded.






This pulled pork turned out fantastic! Delicious bark.
My wife and I just stood at the counter picking at it …. Okay, I'm full … Let's tidy up. Very Happy Cool

A hot 'n' fast pork butt. Went on just before noon, and we were eating it for supper … No problem. Very Happy Cool

I remember a time when I was pulling a nice big ole fat butt. I reserved a big piece of fat cap. Well, my brother in law comes along and sees the cap sittin beside me.. it was half way to his mouth before I tackled him..!! Like what was he thinking. Wink Razz Cool

I was actually serious when I typed that.
Nice to hear that we're not the only ones that do this. Laughing Wink Wink

Thank you, Tony!

The original post was my first time using this cooker.
I have used it several times since. The most recent was a couple weeks ago.

It essentially works out to be 1 hour per pound. I like that! No need for an overnight.


Removed an 8 lb butt after 8 hours …. Hot-n-Fast!




While it rested, I cut up some pineapple.






After I removed the butt, I gathered all of the remaining charcoal and put it into a basket. Before adding the pineapple, I added some more lit charcoal.







Who says that these cookers don't get hot enough??





















There are your sammich pics, Roxy! ^^^^^^^ Very Happy Wink
