saturday June 20th smoke. (Qview)

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I know it's still not saturday here yet but I finished my prep for the morning so I thought I'd start up the Qview thread.

3 racks of baby backs
  • one billbo rub
  • one mild rub
  • one Memphis rub
2 whole chickens
  • one mild rub stuffed with apples and crazines
  • one garlic rub stuffed with onion
1 fattie
  • sausage
  • green bell pepper
  • red bell pepper
  • cheese
  • mushrooms
  • bacon weave
Like I have posted before, this is my first big smoke ever. I've got all the meat wrapped up, new batteries for my thermometers, enough stubbs charcoal, a bucket of chopped up cherry tree chunks, apple juice in a spray bottle, and a brand new apron my fiancée made for me. smile.gif

here's a pic of the meat.

going to be a good day hanging out with the smoker... some beers.. and a Padron anniversary 1964 that's been in my humidor for over 2 years :)

Woo Hoo! Billbo rub! I hope you like it as much as I do. I can't wait for more pics! What kind of sauces, if any, are you going to use?

time to get it fired up.

ok, after having a bit of a hard time getting up to temp. We're good and the ribs go on. (sorry about the glare, sun is bright at the moment)

in an hour it's chicken time... more to come.

Dan meat looks good, but how did that '64 treat you

Looks great.. Is that a mod of some sort to the lid of your smoker?

Post a pic of the apron that the fiance made you. Could be the start of a business venture for you two. Pics on food too. Have fun!

it's a mod to the smoke stack so the smoke actually has to go under the grate before leaving the chamber. I found the idea on these boards :)

as requested here is me in my new apron. (it looks a little off because the heavy spray bottle is pulling it down on one side. Trust me when I say.. it's prefect and the picture does not do it justice.

have yet to fire it up... might save it for after and just go with a simple CAO Gold for now.

Pull up the apron and cover up the OHIO STATE on the T-Shirt. Just kidding. Apron looks good.
