Feb.17 smoke18* and windy- 30+m.p.h.
Called them yesterday Feb.16 and read the threads to them, and they said sounded good to them.
Had to move 6 miles from house to welding shop to find a wind break. Forgot camera, no pics.. SORRY Loaded around 10:30 a.m. 4 rubbed slabs, 2plain[their wish],1 rubbed butt, 2 rubbed turks,1/2 rubbed loin, 2 picnic hams,1 premarinaded pork tender, and 3 fatties[mine]-1 sausage,and 1 ea. gr. pork and gr.beef rubbed on Thurs.
Used apple and cherry wood with an applejuice/Jack spitz-50/50.Everything was GREAT. Fatties had nice smoke ring and tasted great, nice afternoon snack.
Got everything done abt5:30 and moved back to house to let meatfinish resting and carve. 14 people there. Lots of great comments on flavor, tenderness, smokering, etc.
Thank everyone for their input and help. Friend says he is going to build a smoker real soon. Another got a propane job for Christmas,but hasn't used. I told them abt this website for plans, help, hints, mods, and good friends. THANKS AGAIN Steve
