    we did our annual holiday party at our house. we had a really good turnout with the weather being as bad as it was last week. i smoked all day and i had really good results.

    we did 5 pounds of meatballs wrapped in 3 pounds of bacon.


    5 full racks of spare ribs


    8 pounds of chicken wing sections


    here is the meat table once it was laid out there is also a platter of smoked turkey a Georgia cured ham and a whole smoked salmon (not mine)


    this is the non meat table. vegetables? why bother? nobody eats them at our party.



    the party lasted from 7PM until 2AM when i threw the stragglers out.

    there were almost no meat leftovers. just a handful of chicken wings and some salmon bones. i will be holding a rackof ribs back for myself next year. i might need another GOSM big block too.

    Congrats on a successful smoke! Everything looked awesome!

    [​IMG]and [​IMG]for cooking for 35 people. That's no small feat.

    Now were those meatballs from scratch?

    no. they were the armour pre-cooked meatballs. they work very well for the application. they are mild in flavor and consistent in size. once the bacon is done, you can pull them.

    we put a container of mahogany sauce with a paintbrush next to them. they went fast.
     
  9. What kind of smoker is that?
