    Do you guys do this low and slow over a charcoal grill? How much charcoal do you put in and how many hours does it take?

    You just went over to Phils and bought it didn't you? And just laid it on your grill. Don't lie to me.

    To answer the folks who had questions on how I do my smoke, here goes...

    I do a traditional "Carolina Style" pulled pork. You can get away with using typical indigenous hardwoods native to the local area for the style/type BBQ you want to mimic.
    North Carolina has many acceptable wood species... Oak, Hickory, Pecan, Apple etc...
    I used Hickory for these butts

    I start the grill with about 30 charcoal briquettes in the fire box, and once these are nice and hot I add a couple or 3 chunks of hickory that has been soaking in water overnight.

    Once the smoke box gets to about 225-250 degrees, i'll toss the meet in.
    I usually calculate about 1 hour 30 mins per pound, and will not open the smoke box until half that time has elapsed.
    Basically if I calculate 8 hours, at 4 hours i'll flip it... 2 hours later flip again, 1 hour later flip and check internal temps.
    If the temps are good I'll pull it off early, if not, i'll check on it every half hour till the temps get to what I want them

    As far as how much charcoal... it will typically take me a whole bag to do one 8-9 hour smoke session. The key is to watch the temperature, make sure the smoke box stays btwn your 225-250 range. If the fire needs more charcoal or wood... add it. If it starts getting to hot, restrict the airflow coming in from the side.

    The hardest thing about smoking meat is the prep, and getting up early on a weekend to start the smoker.

    If anyone else has any questions please ask... i'll do what I can to answer you
