Dusted off the stick burner for a run today

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by tbrtt1, Jan 19, 2019.

  1. I hadn't used the stick burner in quite a while and I think it was getting jealous. She is just a cheapo Old Country Pecos, but as long as it is not too cold I can get good Q out of it.

    Aside from some wood issues in the beginning, it went pretty well. Seems I get some wood that is still a bit green. I laid down a nice bed lit charcoal and put on a couple large oak splits and they hissed like a couple of Tom Cats in a steel cage match. After a bit I pulled them and put them in my kettle to see if I could pre burn and use later. I had another batch of dry oak and pecan and threw some splits on and I was on my way.

    SLC ribs and I cut off the small bit of tips as I realized I had none in the freezer last night when I was thinking about what beans I would make for a side. Salted then last night and put some no salt rub on this morning. Tips in the background.

    A full smoker is a happy smoker:

    I must say, its hard to beat a stick burner for ribs. Just something about it.

    This meal called for the fine china. Black beans and some dirty rice for sides. Homemade sauce. Aside from screwing up the chicken skin (cooked at too low of a temp) it was a good day. Fat-n-happy.

    Those ribs look juicy, nicely done. I'd even wash that fine china in exchange for a plate at your table.

    Point for sure
