So, I stumbled across this a couple weeks ago and it looked interesting http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Pork-and-Apple-Pie-with-Cheddar-Sage-Crust-368089

I've never fire my oven in cold weather and before Thursday I wanted to see how I had to fire it, so I started thinking what to cook... Pork and apple fatty? Hmmm.... why not?

2 lbs BE sage sausage, a 20 oz. package ground turkey breast, and some onions.

2 Granny Smiths with some fresh sage, the spices, and brown sugar.

Pepper bacon.

I learned to give up on charcoal when the weather is cold. With a 3 briquette wide snake it took two hours to hit 200°F (ambient was ~22°F) . It climbed to 220° with the snake half burned so I split up a 5"x5" piece of fire wood, and was able to hit 300° to finish off the fatty. It looks like the bird gets all wood on Thursday!

Oh, one last pic, did I say it was awesome?
