this weekend will be a tough one, bad weather already forced me to push the smoke back a day, plus i am a little under the weather, but i am determined to do this! finally finished moving and decided to throw a small bbq for the family and friends that helped. we are doing 2 bostons (using jacks old south marinade/brine and rub recipe) 2 briskets (store bought blues hog rub) 5 chickens (brined and rubbed) and will be attempting to smoke some silver (koho) salmon for the first time along with the usual array of fatties, abt's and dutch's wicked baked beans. i hope all turns out well, i hope to see some of you in chat tonight to help keep me awake :)

jacks old south meat marinade:
2 quarts apple juice
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup orange juice
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup salt
Heat and whisk together until sugar and salt dissolve.

Jack's Old South BBQ Rub:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sweet paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt
3 tablespoons black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
Yield: 3/4 cup
Sounds like a great time! Shouldn't have any trouble getting people to help you move if you do this for them. Every time I help someone move all I get is a "Hey, thanks".

I am lucky, I know the next place I move will be 6' deep. I hate moving.

Good luck, look forward to the pics! ......Yes, you better have pics!
Sounds like quite a party you're throwing. Should be some very happy folks.

here is a few pics, still have the salmon, chicken, tenderloin, and beans to get going. will post some pics of smoke in progress soon.




yes they did maverick et-73, this is my first run with them and it was interesting to note the differences between the factory thermo and the different rack levels
(about ~10F per level on this paticular day)
well a very successful smoke indeed, all were happy, all left full and with leftovers. thanks for all your inspiration and tips! otbs here i come :)
