    Fired up the smoker for a couple slabs of babybacks. Did 2-2-1 for the first time-came out great. Mixed in a couple spoonfuls of the rub i used with the apple juice that i poured into the foil during the middle step. Also had a whole chicken I thawed out the other day but didn't end up cooking so I threw that in. My wife saw Dutch's baked bean recipe on here so she mixed up her own version. Even through some abt's on for good measure. Everything was great-I owe it to this forum. Thanks to every one for the ideas and information.

    Hey Wutang,

    Sounds like we had a very similar Sunday. I made 2 racks of Baby Backs, 2 whole Beer-Butt chickens, and some ABT's. Had family over and just didnt take the time to take pics. Everything turned out great and like you, I feel I owe it all to the SMF. This site has helped me make food that is better than any restaurant can make. Looks like you had as good of a day as I did.

    Take care.

    Nice job! This is the best place to learn. If you Can't learn here than you aren't probably teachable.

    Good luck in your future smokes.

    Feast is the right word there. Great job. Have yet to do whole chicken (can't stop doing butts). I'm sure the family left happy and full.[​IMG]

    I wanted to do Beer-Butt chicken but the top rack on my smoker (the one the beans are on in the pics) doesn't allow enough clearance for a chicken to stand up when the lid is shut. I could take the rack off but would not have enough room for the beans. Cooked the chicken breast side down and just left it alone for 5 hours-came out really good. My wife draped a couple extra pieced of bacon on the top when we put the abts on. gotta love a woman that loves bacon

    It is a GrillPro brand horizontal offset smoker. It is pretty similar in design to some of the Chargriller brand smokers I see. I have only had it a couple months and love it so far. Use it to smoke on the weekends and use it to grill during the week.

    Hey Wutang,

    When I saw your pics, I thought "Wow, I wish I had that smoker". I only did my chickens Beer Butt style to save space in my smoker. I have been eyeballing a Chargriller Pro that looks just like yours. It will be a while yet, but someday in the future I will graduate to an offset smoker. However, this weekend, I think I am gonna go old school and smoke a pork shoulder in my ECB.

    Hopefully I will remember to snap some pics.

    I usually put a couple of disposable tin foil pans under the meat in the main chamber. I learned that lesson after doing some chicken qtrs the first weekend I had it and cleaned chicken goo puddles off the deck for the next couple grillouts.
