Alright guys I got a new smoker off of craigslist for $30 and I am trying it out. I had to buy it for that money I couldn't say no. Here it is. I got some good lump charcoal and hickory and mesquite chunks to cook with today. I blazed it up! Rubbed down the ribs with my homemade rub and let them set for a while. I also have a big chicken stuffed with lemons and herbs and rubbed down with garlic and an ozark seasoning from Penzy spices. I nice spicy rub. The brown sugar just melted on the ribs before I put them on. Man these are going to be sweet! More to come as they cook. Also going to add some sweet potatoes, trout, scallops, and shrimp. An awesome day!
