Got home today and lit some coals right away. I picked up a quick chuckle, seasoned with KS&P and on she went. I did a couple burn outs and 2 regular temp smokes on her and she seems to do well. I did a rack of ribs and a butt during those test runs. I just can't stand to watch a smoker run with nothing in it..




The butt..



I'm so happy with this rig.

I have a brisket competition in August, I think I'll be ready..

ABORT! ABORT! ABORT!

Holy cow the weather changed in a heartbeat! The thunderstorms rolled out of the mountains and kicked up a huge dust storm.. welcome to the desert!

The wind was going down my stack  and the smoke was coming out of my firebox dampers.

I yanked the chuckie and tossed it in the oven to finish. 

Thunderstorms overhead now.. 

Gotta love the Mexican monsoon..


That's dirt!
