This weekend I brought home my new unit. It is a Chisholm Trail Smoker custom. I spent Saturday seasoning it and getting a feel for temperature regulation. As with all new relationships we had our challenges.
Rather than start off with a longer smoke like pork butt or brisket I decided to do something easy and with a shorter cook time
St louis Ribs!
I built a fire and let it settle down a bit.
Getting some love with Thin Blue Smoke.
While the smoker is puffing Happy Happy Happy I seasoned 2 racks with course black pepper and Simply Unique rub. I'll be doing a 3-2-1. on these.
My two Maverics are keeping a watchful eye on both ends of the smoker. About a 10 degree drop between the firebox end and the stack. We are Smoking!
More later. b
