Nice spread you've got there -- that's gonna be awesome!!


I just did a test smoke on a couple of dogs and a brat to see how long it would take and how it will taste.  Pretty dang good stuff!


Looking forward to the rest of the pics!

 My name is John and I'm new to the board. But I just had to say it looks like a great time will be had at your place. That pork shoulder looks awesome. I have ruined a few briskets in the smoker. (would be easier to chew on my shoe) but the pork shoulder comes out good. My daughter likes it the next day we make BBQ spaghetti with the leftovers. Anyway have a great time and good eating.

Wow... and I thought I had plans!


Looks like you're off to a good start.


I've got 8 racks of ribs thawing right now and a 15Lb turkey in the bullpin. Going to rub up the ribs tonight, smoke them tomorrow. Then toss the turkey in some brine and get it going Sunday morning. We have about 45 people we're cooking for. The other cook's doing a brisket, sausage and a pork butt. Should be a good Q.

Man oh Man there Rick it looks like you have room for one more. I'm on my way and that's a left at the mickey world thingy then go straight down till you hit water and then back up 5 paces. and turn right. Hold the food for me now.
