Well the weather is a little rough out here in Western Colorado.....
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays a smoker from the slow completion of their smokes"
I found a brisket flat from our butcher steer this year. It was hiding in the freezer, looked like a nice laid back day to do a smoke. So out to my poor frozen friend.
Get the wood into the box and fire it up. Designed to heat fast and hold well it should not take more then 15 minutes to be up to 225 F. Prep the brisket flat while she comes up to temp.
And then its into the smoker. Just something cool about a winter smoke....... quiet outside with the snow coming down... smell of hickory and oak doing its magic. Firebox was a little slow kicking off today, but it will catch up quickly.
As it comes up to temp she starts to smoke. And so in the middle of the Western Colorado snow storm on the second last day of the year.
Can wait to taste the results.......
