Did my first cook on the new smoker. I'm thinking of calling her 'Lil Smokey' because that's what it looks like
Got her all warmed up and ready for the meat.
Got some nice TBS.
Using Royal Oak lump charcoal. I only had wood chips, so I soaked them and would throw in a handfull every 30 mins or so.
Even 1/8" difference would make a 10 degree difference in the cook chamber
Two Pork picnic shoulders ready to go on. I rubbed with EVOO and put on my own pork rub.
Two slabs of spareribs ready to go on. Again with the EVOO but I used Jeff's rub on these.
All of the meat on the gill. Made some ABT's as well.
ABT's are done and half gone at this point.
Shoulders hit 165 and got put in a pan with some apple juice until they hit 205 internal temp.
Part two of the 3, 2, 1 method on the ribs.
Slathered the corn with butter, sprinkled some salt and seasoned salt on them.
Had ribs, corn on the cob and coleslaw for dinner.
I know, I know...the presentation sucks. But I was going for taste and I was trying to keep the family from eating everything up before I could cut it BTW, Jeff's rub is AMAZING on ribs. So far it's the only thing I've used it on, but it has very good flavor.
I let the pork rest for over an hour before I started to pull it. Got a real nice smoke ring and tasty char on the outside.
So there you have it. The first of what I hope to be many good smokes on 'Lil Smokey'
