    First time using the Amazing Tube Smoker..

    So I just put the two boston butts on the smoker. Rubbed them with some vegetable oil and Head's Country Championship Seasoning (first time using this rub, but it smells and tastes delicious so I am excited for that). I am also using apple wood BBQer's Delight pellets for the first time too along with an Amazing Tube Smoker filled about 2/3's with the apple pellets. I don't normally experiment this much at one time, I normally prefer to just change one thing each time, but what the heck, it is part of the fun! Pictures and taste test to follow.

    You'll have to update and let us know how you like the apple flavor with the butts.

    The thing is definitely smoking like crazy, I hope I am not going to oversmoke these with the tube smoker.

    Naw, they'll be fine. I ran a full tube doing some chicken and ribs last weekend, and they came out perfect.

    Well after about 3 hours, the tube is about burned out. I only filled it about 2/3 of the way to start with, so the four hour time seems about right on the 12" tube. I was cooking at 180 degrees during this time.

    Turned out to be the best pulled pork I have had yet! The smoke flavor travelled deep into the meat and was delicious. The Head's Country Championship Seasoning is delicious too, my new favorite. Success!

    Yeah head country is good stuff. I was wondering if it was over smoked and am glad to hear it wasn't.
