The WSM 18 is getting up to temp now after a short pre-heat with a small fuel pile. I just added a bunch more fuel, arranged for optimal burning, and have 2 medium cherry chunks and 1 medium hickory chunk ready to go in with the chucky. Contemplating a dry smoke, or to use the bowl with broth to add moisture...but have about 15 minutes to figure that part and heat up broth in kitchen if going with it.
Chuck got all rubbed last night, sat overnight in the fridge. Looks almost good enough to eat now.. Initial Q-View is on its way, stupid camera batteries died after one shot. But that's all I need for now. Will grab more at stall check, wrap, and post-finish, ready to be shredded and devoured.
Going for about 250-ish for 4-5 hours, plus 1 hour to rest. Just under 3 3/4 pounds, nice and solid marbling throughout...one of the nicer looking chucks I've seen lately.
Wife just pulled in from the store with batteries....and ice to keep beer cold.. Although, having 5 gallons of fresh brewed IPA doesn't hurt either!
