That's what I had planned to do today... But the wife, the ex-vegetarian wife said it was salad night.

Well fine.

Keep in mind this is not a new smoker, or at least that's the story...

So tomorrow it's going to be break in day. It's going to have to be a short cook as I have an appointment at 4.

I found a nice Choice Chick Cross rib roast that gets to be the tester. I think I will also whip up a batch of JJ's Au Jus. Find some good rolls oh yeah! French dip it is!

Said roast is swimming in Henderson's Relish. I will SPOG it tomorrow right before going on the smoker. I plan on KBB, cherry and a pit temp of 200-225.

Here's some photos to hold you all over until tomorrow.












Smoke away!!!

All set up and now I have to wait until my appointment at 4 is over to fire it up! Yes those are rain drops on the lid. Few thunder showers moving through. I'm not worried though it's a WSM!

That's a great deal. What's going to be the first victim?

Smoking along. Used my usual lighting method.
Took a bit longer to get through the ugly smoke phase. I'm sure it has to do with the leaky smoker...

The mini's all did that when new too.
