I had this cooker built a few months ago. The first time it was sand blasted and painted the fellow applied way too much paint (thick). After several weeks the paint would not cure so I had to take it back and have it redone.
Today I was finally able to get her seasoned up.
I figured I might as well have my first cook on her today also.
Last night I made a fatty using Jimmy Dean’s hot sausage and stuffed it with roasted poblano peppers and pepperoni. Seasoned it with On Point Sweet Heat Rub.
Also rubbed down a slab of baby back ribs in brown sugar and let them sit in the fridge overnight. This morning I seasoned them up with On Point AP Rub and On Point Sweet Heat Rub.
Finished product glazed with Craig’s Sauce.
Next up - Pork belly. I made a deep score pattern on the fat side and seasoned it with Smoking Guns Hot Rub. It also sat overnight in the fridge.
Finished product glazed with my apricot glaze.
Glaze consist of:
Everything turned pretty dang good (especially the fatty). The weather was great, high 40’s sunny and very light wind. All in all a perfect day for getting to know my new cooker. I must say it preformed really well. I was able to maintain temps pretty well and had a clean burning fire all day. It ran between 275* and 330* most of the day.
Thanks for dropping by and be blessed!
Getting Old - just remembered I cooked a couple of chickens on this cooker a while back. I had so many issues with the paint burning off the firebox and such during that cook I wrote it off I guess. Sorry for the confusion.
