    This weekend I brought home my new unit. It is a Chisholm Trail Smoker custom. I spent Saturday seasoning it and getting a feel for temperature regulation.  As with all new relationships we had our challenges. 


    Rather than start off with a longer smoke like pork butt or brisket I decided to do something easy and with a shorter cook time

    St louis Ribs!

    I built a fire and let it settle down a bit. 


    Getting some love with Thin Blue Smoke.  


     While the smoker is puffing Happy Happy Happy I seasoned 2 racks with course black pepper and Simply Unique rub. I'll be doing a 3-2-1. on these.



    My two Maverics are keeping a watchful eye on both ends of the smoker. About a 10 degree drop between the firebox end and the stack.  We are Smoking! 


    More later. b

    The Ribs are about half way through 2 hours in the foil.

    Looks like he walked right into your smoker. Lucky for you, this chicken must not have had much to live for  [​IMG]

    Including seasoning I used about 8 pieces of split logs and 1 load of lump charcoal to get it started.  I'm not sure how much wood yours burns BUT thats not bad in my mind. Set me straight if Im using too much wood.  Thanks pal. b
