Time to get to work!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Ok the snow is melting, ideas are flying around left and right, and so are the questions.

First off, is there a certain percentage you are supposed to use for your door/doors on your smoker?

I know there is a formula for the smoke stack but I haven't found that yet.

This is what I will be working with.

Tommorrow I will be stripping the extras off the tank and the trailer.

Currently waiting on steel.

More later as it progresses.

Turkeys were brined and covered in Kansas City Cherry, co-workers inhaled them.

Then there was 'cushion meat' for a graduation.

Rubbed in mustard after 24hr brine, rubbed down with Jeff's rub.

I did get alot of compliments on the pulled pork so again, Thank you Jeff.

 

 

Only 2 smokes on the books and alot yet to learn. I have been unable to regulate heat as far as rollercoaster temps but hopefully that comes in time.

 

Thanks for looking.
