    Happy 4th of July all!

    Today I had the pleasure of performing my first smoke on my new Oklahoma Joe gril/smoker.  I have to say the thing might not be as good as the "old joe", but boy did this thing rock.  Held a rock solid temperature with minimal smoke leakage.

    I ditched the Kingsford and went with the HEB basic brand bricks and they ashed about half that of the Kingsford and outlasted my need for them and were still hot and holding a consistent temp!

    This was my first chicken smoke...

    Brined them for about 10 hours in kosher salt, light brown sugar and a few herbs!

    First, welcome to our family of smoking crazies!

    Looks like a mighty fine bunch of grub.  I bet it tasted great!

    I've had an OK Joe Longhorn for a couple of years.  It worked great, but I still did a few mods on it to help it along.  My next smoke will be this Saturday: four slabs of pork spare ribs for visiting family.

    Good looking pit, I have the highland model. Love it. Getting ready to make my own convection plate and firebox. After that I'll seal top lid (it's not to bad like you said).
