Pork $houlder & Chuckie on the Prison Grill
This past Sunday I had a whole day with nothing on the agenda. So Saturday morning Mrs. ThunderDome and I went to the local Safeway and I picked up a pork shoulder, and a chuckie. I was lookin for small ones since it was just us two eating, and I can’t seem to sell her on the idea of foodsaving any more BBQ.
I decided to give the UDS a week off, and smoked on a tank style grill that the state prison had made for a PTO fundraiser (I think it was a water heater tank in a kitchen at one time). Anyhow, the guy who bought it at the fundraiser was moving, so he posted it on Craigslist. My Dad saw his ad and quickly snatched it up. Very unique grill. He was smoking on it w/o a firebox, so we had one fabricated, and with a little tending to, it works like a charm.
