    The burn ban was lifted earlier this week so I fired up my Oklahoma Joe's offset smoker and had an awesome dinner last night! Battery was dead on the camera so no pre-prep pics, but I do have the end results.

    Two whole chickens 225 for 3.5 hours


    I decided to do pull chicken and it was falling of the bone juicy! This is only one of the two chickens.


    One of the slab of ribs. cooked 225 for 5 hours. I decided not to do the 3-2-1 method, Just sprayed it down with apple juice one every hour.


    Here's one with it cut up. It didn't last long, but I have a 2ND slab for today's lunch! [​IMG]


    All plated up wit some potato salad, and corn casserole, Dang almost forgot the sauce, but once that is done there's no pics cause I will be eating!


    The next two pictures came out blurry. 7.5lbs pork butt that will be devourer today's lunch! Cooked it at 225 for 14 hours. This pic was before I had foiled and placed in the cooler for 4 hours. I had to again explain to the wife it isn't burnt...[​IMG]    It's called a bark and has tons of flavor!


    All pulled, bagged, and ready to the next meal!


    And this conclude my presentation of a man who longed to use his smoker for an entire summer!

    I saw a recipe I wanted to try, but was missing some of the ingredients and decided to just to wing it. This is what I came up with...

    1 lb bag frozen corn thawed, 1 large pear peeled/diced up, 1/2 small onion, 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup of mexican blend cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. I cooked it at 350 for 30mins. I then put some Italian seasoned bread crumbs on top and back into the oven until the crumbs are brown and toasty (around 15mins or so).

    Every time I brought in something she kept saying it looks burnt, and every time I kept telling her that's just bark/flavor... It's funny for as long as I have been cooking its the same thing... maybe I should tell her it is nasty and burnt and I am willing to save the family and eat it all myself!   [​IMG]

    I wanted to add a little bell pepper to the mix, but the one I had didn't look so hot. I will add the wife thought the pear was a poato and I said nothing until she gave me the thumbs up!

    Yea, that's a serious burn ban.  Next thing you know they'll give you a ticket for smoking a coffin nail!

    But,  the food looks great,  you didn't forget a thing!
  16. Excellent looking meal.

    Burn ban??, Didn't know smoking was considered burning?

    Awesome looking Q!

    I didn't know a burn ban was for smoking either.

    We have burn bans here all the time, but I keep on smoking.

    Yeah, we have had a Governor's ban for a LONG time. It just mean I have to have the smoker on a 10X10 pad which I don't, but hope to have one down in the near future! For the last week we are under county ban which means no open flames! =)
