I've been going through withdraw the last month and dooling at what I've seen on the site. My wife gave birth to our first on Wednesday which has meant I haven't been able to know I had time to run the smoker. Mom and baby came home healthy on Friday and we kicked off the smoking yesterday with 2 pork shoulders and are going to do about 8 lbs of chicken wings and thighs today. We also just got a food saver, so I'm planning on doing a lot of smoking, as I'm off all week and vacuum pack and freeze for after I'm back to work. It's a win-win in my book.

I think we are going to try to get in a brisket and some beef ribs this week as well.
Congrats daddy!!
Congratulations on being able to smoke again! Oh yeah, and for the new arrival! Glad to hear that mom and baby are fine. Pictures are in order for the smoke and the baby!
Congrats Irwin, and the new arrival is???
Get him out there smokin with you as soon as possible, but keep him away from the beer for awhile
Thanks to all. We had a beautiful baby girl. 10 fingers and 10 toes and healthy, so I got all I wanted. I've had probably my first of many days that didn't go as planned. I got 4 lbs of wings on at 4:30, the 4 lbs of thighs didn't make it today and I never got to the butcher shop. Looks like thighs tomorow and ribs and brisket Wednesday or Thursday.

I'll look at the stickey on the new picture posting and get a baby picture up today.
Glad you finally got to smoke ole man but getting out of you what the kid was - was like pulling teeth! You'll be having plenty of all nighters now! Congrats on that sweet blessing from God and enjoy dinner!
