I broke my wrist Monday at work and am in a cast now and can't work. What's a guy to do? Experiment with his brothers smoker he left, that's what. As I have stated before, I was looking for an upgrade to my Masterbuilt 7-in-1. I found it. It's just a Brinkman offset horizontal, but I am happy and he already made all the mods it needs.
On to the food. We started simple with a 6.5 lb Boston Butt. It got rubbed last night and went on at 7am.

Then my dad decided we needed to try a piece of cod he brought back from Alaska. I told him the heat would be to high and his exact words were "It's just cod. We have halibut for when we want to eat good."

I figured since I had the room and it was cooking anyway, lets try some salt. (Sorry, no individual pics of salt but imagine a tiny white rock in aluminum foil).
Lastly, we decided to go strange. My mom makes an awesome chocolate caramel brownie and I thought, why not add smoke?

Here's a shot of everything at once
So the taste results? Everything is good, with the butt being amazing. The salt adds a nice flavor to things, but I need to use a pan next time as the foil stuck, ripped, and I lost half. The cod tastes good but is rubbery. Not my favorite smoked fish. The brownies are worth doing again, but I didn't watched it close enough and the overcooked and dried out. I feel like an idiot for that because they could be so good.
