    Wanted to say howdy to you all here at Smoking-Meat I have been charcoaling and smoking for many years but just recently got into it a little deeper. I ran across this site and have been really enjoying all the great info from you all. BTW I ordered Jeffs RUB and Sauce recipe. I have top say the ribs I smoked with his RUB turned out mighty tasty indeed.
    I am using a old horizonal smoker I have had for many years,just lately I gave the old gal a new firebox grate,firebox damper,heat tuning plates,smoke stack extention,a few new wheels and a fresh coat of Hi Temp Paint. I am currently using a Maverick dual probe thermometer for my smoker temps and a Taylor digital for the meat. I have a couple of new themometers ordered for the smoker tho. I drilled 3 holes in the lid,placed rubber stoppers and drilled small holes into the stoppers so I can slide the probes into them and change them out for calibration and different placement often without any hassle.
    Today I am smoking two Turkey breasts. I plan on cooking them around 240 until 170 internal temp. I used a little of Jeffs rub on them and injected them with a little sauce...(2cps real apple juice,1 stick unsalted butter,and 1 TS Jeffs rub) Figure to mop them every so often with the injection sauce as well.

    Sorry for the ramble but thanks again to all who contribute all the great information here and to Jeff for this place and his Awesome RUB recipe. Here are a couple of pics using my cheesy cell phone.[​IMG]

    Thanks Paul I like them too,it makes it so much easier to push the smoker around the yard and garage with these. I was lucky enough to find them on sale for $5 apiece at Ace. Gotta love a bargain!
    I used alot of the ideas from here and a few other places to modify the smoker,it has made it alot easier to turn out good food now. I used to have to tend to it constantly swapping the meat around left and right.The heat sheild and tuning plates make it where I can maintain near even temps at both sides now. A helluva lot funner now!
