    Who's cooking what this weekend?

    Saturday - nothing, coaching kids baseball

    Sunday - Brisket and ribs - - - going to give this Okie thing a try (well sear anyhow) and see what all the fuss is about.

    How about the rest of you?

    I'm making my first attempt tomorrow. CS ribs 3-2-1, a fatty, turkey legs and some ABT's. Any advice before I get started? One concern I have is how much wood (I'm using chips) should I use. I don't want to get to much smoke. BTW this forum is great.

    If you are using chips you can start with a small amount and then add to get the amount of smoke you want. Remember you want it thin and blue, not white and billowy.
    General tips, use a good thermometer for the meat and the smoker, try to keep your temperature steady at 225-250.
    Brine the turkey legs overnight or at least for a few hours.

    Have fun!

    I'm gonna be starting with a chuck roast, cross rib roast, and then grilling a london broil tomorrow. Just to get the weekend started of course.

    I'm giving it a go today, also a first try (although I did a tri-tip last weekend before I found this site and realized I had no idea what the heck I was doing).

    On the menu for today:
    1 slab pork spares
    some chicken (ends up being about a chicken and a half I think)
    2 fatties (1 hot stuffed with cheese and onions, 1 maple rolled in rub)

    Wish me luck!

    Thanks for the advice Ron and FBJ. I'll take some extra time to get my smoke right before I start.

    The stupid roast weighted less than 3 lbs when it went on, now it hit the "plateau". Been at 157* for the last 1 1/2 hrs. I need to go mow the grass. Wasting time waiting for it to hit 160*
  13. Wasn't plannin' on doing nothing except trying to get all of your addresses so I can come over and eat!

    Thanks for the pic FBJ, always wondering what TBS actually looks like according to the experts here. Looks like I've been in the ball park all along.
