    As well as many of you guys and ladies know that I got tapped it smoke the meat for our daughter's wedding really by request. It took about 19 hours to smoke it all and it was a great time (now I say that) It all was smoke with some hickory, apple and some cherry. Included 2 ( 10lbers) briskets, 4 butts for pulling, 2 turkey breast, and then 2 really big ( 8lbs each) pork loins. So not many pictures but I did what I could do.
    This is one on the briskets. This is the 10lber awaiting foiling.

    Lucky for me and I couldn't have better timing while sreaching for a chimmey for the bandera (formally dawns) I found the smoke vault 24" on sale so heres my other new smoker and working it is doing a fine job.

    Here we have got both smokers going and one of the regular grills for the pork loins. Nice thin blue

    The turkey breast were nice and golden being smoked with some apple & cherry mixture. Yes that is the pop up thingey. Jerry says he leaves them in so I did too. Then it never poped up ???????

    One of the 4 trays of pulled pork 3 were done at a couple of weeks ago.
    I really learned alot at the gathering and this was one of the lessons. This brisket was so tender all I had to do almost was to lay the knife on it.

    This is he wedding party alot hah. The 3 girls in the back are ours

    It was really fun for the most part. I called it close for I was suppose to have it all ready at 3:00 and I was slicing the most of it at 3:15 but we pulled it off and all was well and very muchly enjoyed by all.
    PS This was a cool part thanks to Skype that is donald our son and his wife in Germany. They were able to see the wedding in germany over the internet and a webcam.

    Thanks for everyone who attened the gathering you people really showed me alot. Thanks for looking at my thread.

    Looks like everything worked out great.
    I always leave the little pop up thingy in any poultry it comes with, won't burn and removing it would just leave a gaping hole in the meat.
    Food all looked really great, love the fact that you had Skype running and your son was able to be a part of it from so far away.
