Send off for an old friend (smoker, not person)

I wasn't sure where this should go...but considering the chuckie is my first one, it's the star of the show...so...beef it it. :-)
Had a beautiful day here in KC. After spring cleaning of the yard, I thought I'd smoke some food as a little send off to my trustworthy Smoke'N Pit.  My WSM should be dropped off on April 13th, and unless I'm cooking for one heck of a crowd, I'm guessing old faithful will be relegated to second fiddle.
Nothing major, just some stuffed portabellas, ABT's, a chuckie and a fatty.
A couple pregame pics. :)
Not pictured is a pan of what we call campfire taters.  Just some cubed taters, onion, garlic, butter and some seasoning.  I'm not smoking them, just roasting.

that all looks good and is a fitting send off

Yeah, not too shabby.  I'm smoking a meat loaf tomorrow, so it's not its final voyage.  I'm sure it will have its place in my arsenal.  I worked hard getting it 'leveled' out, so I won't totally abandon all my hard work.  :-D
The fatty was just a basic meat and cheese jobby.  The ABT's were a variety.  A couple with sausage, a couple with just cream cheese and a couple with a stuffing/cream cheese mix.  They were all fine and dandy.:"
The 'bellas were an experiment.  Some family member recently became veg-heads, so I figured I'd smoke some (I know they grill up fine) with some stuffing to see how they turned out.  They were OK...need cheese. ;)

Yeah, there were actually 8 ABT's.  I was really just cooking for myself, so I didn't see any need to over do it. :-)


It was delicious Al, I can't believe I waited so long to do a chuck roast.

Well...maybe I jumped the gun a bit saying it was the last smoke on the S'nP.  All week they had been calling for rain today, but as weathermen often are, they were wrong.  So, we whipped up a meatloaf to toss on the smoker.
Never done a meatloaf before.  I've done lots of burgers and meatballs with great success, so hopefully the loaf will be good too.
Instead of just hand forming a loaf on a pan, we decided to use our grill wok, which has holes in it.  I doubt it will be super smokey, but it should be tasty.  It's resting now, waiting on some friends to come over for dinner.
