I have bought Jeff's recipe and book have read part of the book. I did a version of the chuck roast 2 and rib roast same way. 2 pork butts for pulled pork 2 chickens pop can, 14 chicken legs, and 19 burgers. Meat temp probed one of each type and stacked same over same and kept room between different ones didn't want to make any one sick.
Pre heat before load had adjusted baffle a little.
Pork butt in with rub on
2chuck roasts with rub and bacon cap
Pot of beans w/ one table spoon on Jeff's rub per can of beans and 2 cups apple juice for the long cook. The bottom of the pot was getting to hot on fire box so put 2 bakers rakes under the pot. That made the beans stop sticking and still kept temp close to 200. Cooked for around 9 hours. wife wants more brown sugar and may add some molasses next time. Mom use to add molasses. Still very good
Chuck roasts part way through
Burgers out have been reading about the smoke ring in brisket so looked for that in the burger. Put Jeff's rub on part of the burgers
Pork but late in the smoke
Then have a early bbq guru on it so loaded with wood and ran kids over to swim.
When got back every thing ready from resting and cooker had gone to rest so was to busy to remember any more photos.
I now see what people talk about on yield n pulled pork a lot less than went in but very good.
Want to do better on next time:
Split wood smaller oak for heat was too big
Start buying disposable pans too much work to clean
Need more rub / supplies on hand / mixed
Need some more organization
Too much water makes it hard to get up to temp went down to pans of marinate
Need to not let pans run dry / get disposable pans
Be careful on placing thermometers prob did have thermal pen to test had to put burgers prob in different
While I want to test and learn a lot of recipes I can not do then all at once
Can chickens don't fit good with both racks in need to do a chicken / turkey smoke and take out top rack
Some scraps got throw out that I planed for next beans. Kids helping and not knowing
Au jur ? Got dumped
Good things about this smoke
Food food and more food very good
More heat out of oak. Want to test more from list in Jeff's book
Make notes and photos of cook. Just more photos
Like more thermometers do need a little bigger hole to put in and another hole for lower level
Had plenty of wood this time. Just need better size
I an reading every thing I can and looking for advice. I believe in learning from others and letting others know what I have learned.
