First batch of RO. I had 6-7 bags from last year but they were damaged due to a waterbackup late last year. Cowboy Hickory is much better than its Lump.

I snagged a new grill wok for use as a charcoal basket. This one is deeper and a bit wider than the one I used last year.

Speaking of that, here is the old one. Gets a bit hot in there donchathink?

The main event:

Pullin the membrane:

All rubbed down. I find that a rubber glove helps to keep the rub on the meat and not clumped in yer hand.

Compared to what we've had weather-wise today should be a scorcher. Need to keep hydrated:

More to follow as I get underway, but basically doin the 2-2-1 method with a rum spritz.

If that's not a fine way to start off 2009, I'm not sure what is. Those bb's look really good, did you foil them or were they smoked without foil?

Love the shot of your beer, it's my favorite kind and only get it when I visit my cousins in Oregon eek.gif

And, I'm spent:

They were foiled. I lost track of time between side work, friends and family and they got more than 2 hrs in foil. Intended for 2-2-1, ended up with 2-2.5-.5 lol

Well if ya ever make it to my side of WA state there's plenty more of the Hefe' for ya Laurel!

Thanks for the thumbs up folks. Always appreciated. I had all but forgotten the effort involved in posting pics throughout the day, not to mention typing away while everyones chowin down. One of these days the wife is gonna hide the camera on smoke dayicon_mrgreen.gif

Lesson (re)learned, more than i set of tongs needed when removing from foil.

Great to be back, for sure. Now that spring has finally sprung, I still got a bit more work around the yard to keep me busy (still) but I promise another season of smoke.

Definitely one of the better Hefe's around here. Even better on tap.
