Well, the old Bar-B-Chef is getting ready to get fired-up ( Q-view )

post #1 of 12

And on it will be going a 12 pound butt, 2 chicken halves, about 6 leg quarters, and a threreabouts 20oz porterhouse ( all at different times, dontcha' know ). Oh, and a nice pan of a chickpea-black bean thang' I do.

And speaking of getting " fired up " I'd like to, but it's gonna' be a LONG night, and an early morning. And it's about 100 degrees out back. Gotta' maintain.

Q-view to come.............

LOL...I heard that on the "getting fired up" part! I have the urging to but like you I've got a long night ahead with a butt I'm throwing on later tonight.  Have a great smoke and we'll check back for that Qview!

Well, here's the 12 pounder after 3 hours ( about 3 hours ago ). Since then, the chicken is on, and the butt is in a nice, long stall at 143.

 

I'll get the finished products up to take a gander at whenever this marathon is over !

Very nice job!  The bark looks great.  Samples being accepted!

Glad to hear you finished the marathon! LOL  Looks like the bone is ready to fall right out, nice!

That looks great - I haven't got to a bark like that, but that is my favorite part of what I used to have to BUY, but now get to TRY :) -   Happy Eating!

Thanks for the kind words, fellas. It came out great. My only miss was not doin' two of 'em ( those sammiches were pretty popular ).

The ironic thing is that when I was doing this smoke ( for the time I put in, I almost could have done a suckling pig ), the National Capital Barbecue Battle was going on downtown ( about 30 minutes from here ). Well, MAYBE next year I'll come up with the $375 to enter, and throw my goods in the pit !
