    I know it's still not saturday here yet but I finished my prep for the morning so I thought I'd start up the Qview thread.

    3 racks of baby backs
    • one billbo rub
    • one mild rub
    • one Memphis rub
    2 whole chickens
    • one mild rub stuffed with apples and crazines
    • one garlic rub stuffed with onion
    1 fattie
    • sausage
    • green bell pepper
    • red bell pepper
    • cheese
    • mushrooms
    • bacon weave
    Like I have posted before, this is my first big smoke ever. I've got all the meat wrapped up, new batteries for my thermometers, enough stubbs charcoal, a bucket of chopped up cherry tree chunks, apple juice in a spray bottle, and a brand new apron my fiancée made for me. [​IMG]

    here's a pic of the meat.

    ok, after having a bit of a hard time getting up to temp. We're good and the ribs go on. (sorry about the glare, sun is bright at the moment)

    Looks great.. Is that a mod of some sort to the lid of your smoker?

    one hour in... first spray and added the chickens.

    now to get that temp back up.. sigh.

  16. Post a pic of the apron that the fiance made you. Could be the start of a business venture for you two. Pics on food too. Have fun!

    it's a mod to the smoke stack so the smoke actually has to go under the grate before leaving the chamber. I found the idea on these boards :)

    as requested here is me in my new apron. (it looks a little off because the heavy spray bottle is pulling it down on one side. Trust me when I say.. it's prefect and the picture does not do it justice.

    have yet to fire it up... might save it for after and just go with a simple CAO Gold for now.
     
  20. Pull up the apron and cover up the OHIO STATE on the T-Shirt. Just kidding. Apron looks good.
