HI all, Just wanted to tell everyone about the wonderful time I had this past Friday in Denver. I woke up all ready to smoke a pork butt for my friends daughters birthday. When I looked out the window it was SNOWING!!! Let me tell you it is not a lot of fun to try to smoke during a snowstorm. But I had promised pulled pork and ribs so out I went into the snow. I had to take a patio umbrella and put it over the smoker to keep it from getting wet. Everything was ok until I found out there was no way I could get the temp up past 150 degrees. So after about 12 hours in the smoker and the meat at about 140 degrees I brought the meat inside and let it finish in the oven. I went to sleep a very tired boy that night. And you know drinking beer during a snowstorm still doesnt make it a lot of fun LOL. Well on Saturday I woke up to smoke the ribs and low and behold it is a beautiful day high reached about 70 degrees (Gotta love that Denver weather). For some reason the beer tasted ESPECIALLY good that day!! Well everything FINALLY turned out alright and every loved the meat. My friends dad even said that he really didnt like eating ribs as i looked on his plate with seven of my ribs on it.
