Butt looks great, but your door looks like its almost flat! Bend that sucker a bit to put a curve on it. It will fit much better that way.

That is a very good job, regardless of it being your first or 100th cook. I think the 14.5 is perfect for cooking pork butt, particularly in dry environments. Because the volume of the cooker is small, it ends up raising the humidity (moisture from the butt). My pork butts have an amazing crust when cooked in a 14.5 vs. any of the larger units. It makes a big difference out here in California.
