I'm still tweaking and finding flavors and learning. If you think TBS is better than tsp I'll bump it up. I'm sure you know the effects of paprika in ground meat much better than I. I was thinking I'd do the coarse grind and cure on Thursday or Friday and do fine grind and stuff on Saturday.

We've come up with a menu for the 3rd Annual North Carolina Smokers Gathering April 25th, 26th and 27th 2014. Some additions and subtraction may be made depending on what folks bring. If anyone has suggestions or something they want to smoke let us know. We will have same smoker we had the last 2 years so there's plenty of room. We will also have a sausage making demo and hopefully serve the smoked sausage for lunch Saturday.

Friday
Lunch
Beef and Chicken Taco/Fajita Bar, Chorizo, Chips, ABTs, refried beans

Dinner
Smoked Chicken, Kielbasa, Smoked Pork Loin, Italian sausage, beans w/ham hock, and salad

Breakfast
Fatties, bacon, eggs, sausage, Pork Tenderloin, toast or biscuits

Lunch

Dinner
Pulled pork, brisket, pork shotz, smoked mac and cheese, beans, salad and slaw 

Sunday
Breakfast
Fatties, bacon, eggs, sausage, Canadian bacon, toast or biscuits

Man I wish I had knew of this earlier. Too late for holidays this year, but next year if I know in advance I would love to come down from Canada to see for the first time how real smokers work.

Isn't a sole around me that I have noticed that has a smoker except me. Really need some tips.

Let me know for next year so I can book time off.

Looked at the two previous years posts and pics. I didn't see anyone doing anything but eating and drinking....lol. I thought the States were big on cornhole? Another thing Canadians know nothing of, made two sets and its always whats that. maybe I could bring a prize for the bbq seeing how I can't bring meat over the border
