Free stuff and guests bringing surprises!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
About a week ago my brother told me of a smoker at my mom's place that he wouldn't be using anymore. DING! Eyes lighting up. Saturday early morning I went and rescued it.

After a stop at the store for a rack of spares, I was back home competing with this....

I eliminated the charcaol and converted to propane for this smokes maiden voyage, at least while in my posession.
After getting up to temp and the mix of apple and hickory smoldering, here is the rack rubbed and ready.

After 2 hours in the smoke and a steady 225 degrees....

During the smoke I threw a batch of Ajthepoolman's cold weather soup and made a few quarts of chicken stock for future use.

The finished rack complete with bones falling out

And all plated up with a surprise that was brought with a friend of my wife's for dinner.

A good time and a good meal shared among friends!!

That deal's hard to beat! Looks like it just needed a good home. How accurate was the temp. gage? Or did you check it?

Never would have thought that crablegs would be the least favorite portion of the dinner. That was a quote from my wife's friend.

Nice score, these things do not need to be sitting around rotting when a SMF member can put them to good use. Good looking ribs also !!!

nice dude........and WHAT a crab leg........but

i guess i will be the only to ask...........what IS that in the center of the plate?
post #16 of 20

That big leg

I knew it wasn't you who said that the crab leg was the least favorite part of your meal. How was that shot of butter after you ate the leg?
For those who use this forum, Dingle is my BFF. I will vouch for all of his meals. He hasn't made a bad one yet.
