What condition was the wood in after you were done?

John, two pieces of advice based on my experience and opinion.

1) For pork butts, 225 takes forever.  235 - 250 produces same results and shaves hours off your smoke time.

2) Go up to 8 oz. of wood and make the added weight in hickory.  Smoke will never reach the center of the shoulder but pulled pork gets its flavor from blending the stronger flavored bark with the inner meat.

My guide or guard is off center too, no worries.

I saw your wood pictures, should be closer to charcoal or complete ash looking when finished.  Try smaller cuts and move around box.

I thought the wood looked great when done.  It was probably 2/3 ash with the rest like charcoal. 

Thanks Dave I'll give both those things a try.
