    That's what I had planned to do today... But the wife, the ex-vegetarian wife said it was salad night.

    Well fine.

    Keep in mind this is not a new smoker, or at least that's the story...

    So tomorrow it's going to be break in day. It's going to have to be a short cook as I have an appointment at 4.

    I found a nice Choice Chick Cross rib roast that gets to be the tester. I think I will also whip up a batch of JJ's Au Jus. Find some good rolls oh yeah! French dip it is!

    Said roast is swimming in Henderson's Relish. I will SPOG it tomorrow right before going on the smoker. I plan on KBB, cherry and a pit temp of 200-225.

    Here's some photos to hold you all over until tomorrow.

    All set up and now I have to wait until my appointment at 4 is over to fire it up! Yes those are rain drops on the lid. Few thunder showers moving through. I'm not worried though it's a WSM!

    Smoking along. Used my usual lighting method.
    Took a bit longer to get through the ugly smoke phase. I'm sure it has to do with the leaky smoker...

    The mini's all did that when new too.

    Thank you Richie! It's going to be tasty on a grinder with horseradish, mustard, tomato & peppercinni!
