    Anything under 200 can be a challenge but I would only go lower than 200 if I was smoking cheese anyway.

    I don't know of much reason to go under 200, even pork ribs should be cooked to 200 or so and if you're cooking under 200 then the pork can never get above the cooking temp.

    I've done pulled pork at 225 for 14 hours without having to touch anything. The BGE can go 20-25 hours on a single load of lump which is nice.

    Your coals are too much at the stage of flame. Let them burn down to a red glow, then put the meat on and you get what you want

    It took me a while to find out what BGE was, and for those who would like to know, BGE is Big Green Egg. The BGE certainly looks like a great grill/smoker.

    My smoker would never last more than 5 or 6 hours on a single load of charcoal, but I do have the trap door in the side, so I can add more coals. Honestly, I don't end up adding coals. If the meat needs more cooking time, I'll usually finish it off on my barbeque. I believe the smoke flavor is going to be there after an hour or two in the smoker, and I've been known to pull meat off early and finish cooking it in the oven.

    I've used a three stage cooking method to cook meat in some cases. Cook the meat in the crock pot for a couple hours, then in the smoker for a couple hours, then in the oven for 20 mins.

    I didn't have a chance to eat breakfast today, so I must go, because all this talk of food is making me hungry!

    I'm not much interested to cook, but I like to cook occasionally.

    I am getting so hungry reading through this thread, there are some beautiful things people have cooked and I'm a sucker for ribs so the original post really got my mouth watering. Mmmmm, marinade!

    I enjoy cooking and love to experiment but rarely get time plus don't really have a kitchen at the moment as I'm in the middle of renovating. However I've just setup a recipe blog so get to combine my work with pleasure and should have excuses to cook more often now
