Happy bird day to all from Florida! Here's the run down: 15 lb bird, brined overnight, olive oil on the skin, butter pats under the skin, basic seasoning, stuffed with pear, onion, carrots, celery, oranges and lemons. On the kettle with Stubbs natural briqs and pecan chunks. We'll see how she turns out!

Yep, like Al says, kettles are great! I'd prefer to be doing mine on my backyard kettle today too, but it's pouring down rain here. So I have a MES30 going, that backs out of the garage instead.

Hi all, I am new here. I need help. I put my first bird in the smoker at 275. Went to check in 2 hours later to add more wood and saw that the breaker popped or something and my smoker was off and cold. My bird's temp was 71. I switched plugs and turned it back on. Is it still safe to cook or could it be contaminated? Thanks!

It's kind of sad that I've been ignoring my mini wsm but the kettle is just the ultimate BBQ tool! Ribs, chicken, steaks, fish, turkey, veggies... it just works and it's so easy! Wish it was a touch cooler here though. I'd almost welcome some rain. That's the rough thing about FL, hard to get in the holiday spirit when it's 85!

I feel your pain, I'm about 1 hour south of you & It's not much fun tending to a fire & sweating bullets!

I saw snow once - it was cold! Good news is I have plenty of cool beers to keep me from overheating!
