    Here is some Q-views, I wish my presentations were better for you but I was caught up in the serving process instead of the pics!!

    We were having a re-union yesterday for family from out of state and I did up 25 pounnds(3) of center cut briskets and like 13 pounds of Spare Ribs. I trimmed the ribs, and then made some boneless flaps out of the waste pieces.

    Did some BBQ Beans and ABT's too:)

    Nice work, Steve... Ya come a long way fast, man! Course.. a Lang helps LOL!
  8. Good looking spread :)

    what's the stuff in the metal pot ?
    never thought to use a cook pot on the bbq. It looks like some sort of bean concoction - chilli maybe ?
    Darn good idea anyway - might pop down to my local camping shop for something like that. It'd also be good for hot dipping sauces. Save me having to whip upstairs to heat the sate up in the microwave before serving.
    hmm, wonder if you can get a small cast iron pots (got me thinking now).

    Just out of curiosity, how many people were you catering for ?
    Wish I could get racks of ribs like that over here.
  9. Man! All of that looks great! Those ribs look just right with the bone poking out. I bet they were tender.

    I'm interested in your beans there too. What all did you have in them and how long do you cook them for?

    Nice spread!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the nice comments:)

    Sorry no invite there Dick--I should have because everyone who showed up had to bring a dish---maybe I would have gotten one of your famous fatties!

    Curious Aardvark-- It was BBQ beans in the dutch oven and we had 24 family total with all bringing something to share!!

    Fred--for the BBQ Beans, I put any pork previously smoked like rib flaps, pulled pork or even pork loin bark. For 5 pounds of "rinsed & drained" beans, I add 1 pound of pork, brown sugar, bbq sauce, water, hot sauce, pepper, bbq rub, etc. The beans are light and dark red kidney (canned), so I just put them in the smoker for 2 to 3 hours to simmer and get smoke!!

    The briskets(14 HOURS) hit 200 after 9 hours so I held them in my "baby" warmer at a warmer temp of 150 for another 5 hours. The ribs total cook was 5.5 hours.

    smokin steve, I don't know how you do it..my grandfolks retired to maine. and if I remember it is still cold there at night.

    I am not a seafood lover, but I have a friend who I think has steamed them in his Lang 60, by filling the baffle with water and cranking up the fire! Even though I don't eat it, my opinion is that smoke anf lobster don't mix if your already paying over 8/lb!!

    Hell, I'll smoke at 10 degrees in the winter without gloves, she does thro enough heat to keep ya warm!

    everything looks great there steve. I have a question for you, did you lower your main cooking grates? For some reason they look lower than normal to me.
