    I'm a firm believer in ribs at 220-240, no higher. My personal preference. Butts I don't really care.

    I always do pork butts at 250. Pork ribs at 225 using the 321 method. Beef ribs at 250. Chicken at 275. Brisket at 225.

    John. Cooked my pork butt on a WSM at 225-230. Check my posting here:

    This post also compares results wrapping/not wrapping.

    Highly recommend cutting large shoulder in half to help reduce cook time and increase bark area.

    When speeding up Pork Butt cooks I've found the best compromise is to cook it at 225 F until it hits the stall, then crank the heat up to 275 F until the meat is out of the stall (typically 175 F to 180 F internal) then letting the temp settle back down to 225 F until the butt finishes around 203 F.

    Mine too, but 4 hours is a big window, I will aim for 16 and be ready for what I get

    FWIW, my pork butts on my Weber kettle + SnS & Big Green Egg at ~225 were in the 14-18 hour range and at ~250 about 12 hours.

    I do believe 225 F will get you the best possible result with pork butt, but you can get great results cooking at hotter temps. The perfect butt doesn't do you any good if it's done 5 hours after the guests leave. Cook at 225 F if you have the time, otherwise cook to get it done ON time.

    Guess i'm gonna have to try, no clue how long a pork butt takes at 225. Did like 100 this year and have it down pretty good, now I might have to change.

    I usually cook 275, not sure why my ribs were so much better this time if there isn't a difference in that range...

    I just cooked a pork butt with the SnS running 270, sister in law said it was my best one yet.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
