    It's a rule of smoking! I did a whole pig a while back and started hitting the keg at 5 in the morning. Beer dining and smoking go hand and hand :biggrin:

    Nice looking BB's , and good color too [​IMG][​IMG]  If SWMBO catches you with a Brewsky in hand . . . go to plan "B" and say "Yes , Dear" the rest of the week [​IMG].

    Remember to do the poke test  for tenderness [​IMG].

    Have fun and . . .

    After slaving over a hot smoker, how can you not have a beer?

    Tasty looking ribs!!

    Have you ever spiral cut or Octo cut your hot dogs? Kids love that!

    Cut the lower 2/3 of the dog into eighths prior to cooking smoking. L like to stand then up and splay out the tentacles while cooking. Suppose you could put them in a popper tray upside down too.

    I forgot to mention that beer also helps you stay focused on smoking meat tasks. That's originally why it was invented. Show this post to your wife and tell her, "See! If they let him post it on the internet, it must be true!"

    Terrific looking ribs. Well done. As for smoked hot dogs, I think your son is a genius!

    I learned a long time ago, the proper response to anything SWMBO says is, "You're absolutely right dear, what could I have been thinking!" while slapping your hand on your forehead.
