1st smoke of the year.... Man am I late!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Cold rainy spring and other things kept me from the smoker this year, but I finally got the first smoke of the year under my belt.

 

One rack of ribs, and three chuck eyes.  I took the chuck to about 180* and will freeze for future dinners.  Stopping just short of "done" will let me roast them in the oven with veggies for 1 1/2 hours at 325* or so long enough for veggies to get done, and the meat will be just right.

 

Here they are about 2 thirds of the way through the cook.

Looks great fpmich! So, it appears like you've got the ultra modified version of my Char-Griller offset - I still need to add better temp gauges, but I've removed the inner pan and added a nice baffle from the fire box and some piping to bring the vent back across the top of the unity.I love it and the changes help, but I still have trouble with fire control.

Any additional pointers/tips as far as your updates to your smoker?

Nice job frank. How'd the ribs turn out?

 

More importantly, how was your luck morel hunting this past spring. I only found six, but that's better than nothing......

Ribs turn out great.

 

Morel season didn't.  LOL

I didn't even bother going out this year, they were so sparse.
