No one wants to see pictures of your PP Rambeaux! Unless you are referring to your pulled pork. How's the weather on the bayou? My family is in Lake Charles area.

Good one! You sound like my friends!

Weather finally cleared up today. Beautiful day to be alive.

Yes, I'm referring to my pulled pork. Only the wife gets the other pp pics.

Here's the end result

Oh NO, that's my goto pot when I need to feed some people. If I ever were to get a divorce, I want the pots, she can have the rest.

Très bien, merci.

 

I forgot to talk about my equipment and experience:

 

My dad bought me a side-firebox 10 years ago for a wedding gift. I've used it quite a bit and love the flavor but wanted something less labor intensive. So my buddy gave me a broken 60 gallon air compressor tank and I could see the diamond in the rough. I had some rebar and a burner laying around so I fired up the welder and got to work. Ended up with a very nice vertical smoker. That's what I'm using these days. I used to work at a meat market called "The Best Stop" during high school. Learned a lot about preparing food, making and smoking all kinds of cajun sausage in my time there. Still, I'm a novice at smoker cooking, but looking around at this site, I'll catch up quick. Here's my build:

That's my next meal, smoked boudin. The best way to eat it. For those who don't know, boudin is a type of sausage that's suffed with rice, Boston butt, onions, bell peppers, and liver. Usually it's boiled and served but if you eat it grilled or smoked you'll never want it any other way. C'est bon!!

I'll be sure to post.
