    These are going on tomorrow morning. We're expected to get some weather as well so I'll be using sand in place of water.

    One has been injected and marinated in Mojo and the other in Italian dressing. Then, Jeff's rub went on:



    Wrapped and ready to go.....
     
  2. so the sand...do you just use regular play sand?

    does walmart have any sand out yet?

    Yeah, just play box sand. I get it at Home Depot. Makes a world of difference in cold weather. Plus, you don't have to worry about filling up the water through the day or erratic temps.

    It makes a smoke sooooo much easier in colder weather and temps are very constant.If you drop, it will be gradual as well.

    If you use it, just put some foil on top so that you can re use it if need be.
