    Since the weather here in CT was supposed to be overcast with rain showers this past weekend, I threw a holiday "cookout". Started out on friday with a 13# brisket.

    Brisket ready for smoker



    Point on top - flat on bottom



    Flat is done - off to the cooler



    Point ready for burnt ends


    Worked on the building and clean up while cookin on friday.

    Saturday started on the rest and got to try out my stick burner.


    Test run after preburn on offset



    Stick burner going



    Both smokin



    Beef ribs done



    Spares done



    Birdies almost done


    Used jeff's rub and a apple-cherry juice w/ brown sugar mop on everything. Was so exhausted after two complete days of smoking w/ little sleep that when everything was done, I just gave up and let everyone else just dig in. Wish I would have gotten more pix but I think I took on alittle more than I was ready for. Everthing came out good & everybody loved the food. Next time I think I'm going to need a helper.
    I had fun doing it though.
