First cook on my Yoder 640.
« on: November 03, 2013, 08:04:59 pm »
My dear wife is my biggest critic. She told me I am officially out of the dog house for buying a new smoker.  She said the pork butt I cooked today was the best I have done and actually asked why I didn't buy it sooner!!  I decided on 250* for this cook and the Yoder held that solid for the entire 9 hour cook.  It burned about 16 lbs of pellets. The balance of smoke, pork, seasoning and tenderness were spot on.  But the coolest thing about it was I could watch football all day and not worry about feeding the stick burner.  I will always love my Horizon pit because she was my first but the Yoder makes cooking a whole lot more fun.  I am really looking forward to some solid practice sessions on the Yoder.

Pix of my first butt on the 640!







I LOVED the smoke ring on the butt.  My concerns about not enough smoke are gone forever!

NICE WORK, I guess im old fashion, still love adding those sticks. Have a Lang being built right now.

What Lang model are you purchasing and when will it be delivered? If you make your Lang as air tight as you can, as I have, you'll find they hold temperature very well and your fuel consumption will be low. For example, I cooked a 12lb turkey last week for 3.5 hours. I started with a full basket of lump charcoal and added about 5 coke can size chunks of hardwood plus a couple of handfuls of lump and maintained a temp average of 285*.
