Labor Day Smoke on the Yoder w/ (Q-View)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

     Had some family over for a little swimming and BBQ for the Labor Day weekend.  It had been awhile since I had put any heat in the Yoder.  Decided on pork spares, tri-tip, legs and thighs, and some ABTs for snacking!  Spent Sunday evening prepping all the meat.  Rubbed down the spares and the tri-tip w/ yellow mustard.  Seasoned the pork spares w/ Spade-L-ranch pork rub and alittle brown sugar.  The tri-tip got the Spade-L-ranch beef rub and brown sugar aswell.  Removed the skin from the chicken, trimmed it up a bit, seasoned w/ Spade-L-ranch poultry and reapplied the skin.  Wrapped them all up in celophane and put em' to bed for the night in the fridge. 


     Started the firebox w/ a chimney of Royal Oak, and continued the cook w/ splits of almond as fuel.  I used the 3-2-1 method on the spares and spritzed them w/ apple juice about once and hour.  Added apple juice, a light coat of sauce, and foiled them at the three hour mark.  I thinned out some Sweet Baby Rays sauce w/ ketchup, cider vinegar, cinnamon, paprika, brown sugar and garlic powder.  Sauce was brushed lightly on all the dishes around the last 30 minuets or so before being pulled.  Tri-tip came off at 143 internal.  Everything was foiled and left to rest for a half hour or so after coming out of the Yoder.


     Topped of the feast w/ some macaroni salad, a fresh green salad w/ cranberries, almonds, and crutons.  Added a loaf of rosemary olive-oil jalapeno bread to the mix aswell.  Sold out and bought bread at the store:)  Wife threw down on some brownies topped w/ carmel for desert.  Sorry no pics of the brownies:(
