    Keith's Pulled Pork finishing sauce/ dipping sauce

    Sounds good! Have you ever thought of using some Chipoltle Tabasco instead or in addition to the cayenne pepper? Adds a little heat and nice smoke flavor .

    your orgin

    On Mom's side, I'm 3rd gen. originally from Germany and Scotch-Irish. On Dad's side my hubby likes to joke and say that we came over on the Juneflower instead of the Mayflower since we can trace our heritage back to the early 1600's in Savannah, Ga. Hey, wasn't that a prison colony back then  LOL!!

    New to the forum, my first pnwba comp this Sunday.

    Congrats on competing! Wish you all the best and I'm sure you will get some great feedback here. Are you doing an NC vinegar based sauce, mustard style, or a tomato based sauce. Would love to know , that would help us tweak your smoking to your specific needs. Best of luck!! D

    Any reccomendations for a long lasting digital themometer?

    176 on the larger of the two, that is ok 'cause I have great jams and a great frosty bev. by my side ;). I do think that the local windy conditions have hindered my smoking times today though. Oh well, that is part of chasing the sometimes elusive TBS- lol!

    Thanks so much for your recommendations dirtsailor2003! I've known about the Thermopen for years, but was hoping for a cheaper option. Haven't heard about the Maveric and will have to do some research on that. Thanks again for such a quick reply! Enjoy your smoke! D

    Any reccomendations for a long lasting digital themometer?

    Hi everyone :)! I need a recommendation for a good thermometer that won't crap out after a couple of smokes. Had a couple of good ones that worked for a few years and then died. The polder replacement worked for only one smoke and has gone fubar on me... Very frustrated ;)! Would love some input...

    Smoke then fry?

    Hmmm, just found out that the turkey we are getting tomorrow is larger than 14 lbs. and you guys just may have solved my dilemma ! I was a little concerned about the danger zone myself, and since I have a turkey fryer upstairs ( that has been sadly neglected ) this might just be the way for us...
