i just filled the smoker with goodies. a 2.71lb beef shouler roast, 12 ABT's, 2 sage fatties, 5 polish sausage links, and 2 rock game cornish hens. on the mini chickens (you like that?), i brined one in water, salt, and lemon-pepper- the other in water, salt, and cajun seasoning. i rubbed them in EVOO and rubbed them with their respective spices. i also put some black pepper on both, and added some chili powder to the cajun seasoning one. the ABT"s have colbyjack cheese, with bacon on the top. the fatties don't need any help, and the polish sausage i left alone. the shoulder i rubbed with mustard and put on cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and cajun seasoning last night, wrapped in saran wrap and put in the fridge last night. i added some turbinado sugar and chili powder before i put it in the smoker. will take pics later and add them to this thread.

no special tuesday. just felt like smoking. my wife loves chicken, so i did those for her. i like beef, so i did it for me. we both love fatties. i love ABt's. had never tried polish sausage before, so felt like trying them. this will feed us for a couple of days.
Looks good Chris! Who said smokin' is bad for ya? I need to do more chicken, especially those sawed off half pint mini's.

Keep Smokin (as if they could drag you away from that thing)
pc, it would be hard to drag me from it.
marvin, i used mesquite. my wife bought me a charcoal chimney yesterday also, so now i don't need starter fluid now. yipee!
Chris , the food looks great!!!!! How long did the cornish game hens take?

Larry, how did your cold smoke go??
i smoked them for 4.5 hours- that was a bit too long. next time i will pull them a little earlier. i think prolly around 3-3.5 hours would be better. the fatties came out real nice, as did the ABT"s and the polish sausage.
