    After a two week hiatus from smoking due to my drive through one of the prettiest states I’ve ever seen (Vermont) I am doing a small smoke - Only three racks going today in my Smoke Chef. It looks naked!

    I started with a 12 pound brisket, trimmed at least 4 pounds of fat off and bagged some of the better fat for sausages. That sounds weird for a fat hater now doesn’t it? Washed it up real good and added some plain rub (garlic, onion, Cajun spice, paprika, mustard, chilli powder) about 2 pm.

    Cleaned up a small 8 pound butt rubbed with yellow mustard, same rub, through in on at 2:30pm.

    Cleaned up two small chucks marinated in soy sauce, garlic, onion, ginger, brown sugar and Cajun spice (I know I can’t get away from the stuff). Sprinkled more spices just before throwing it in the smoker.

    Split open 4 hot JD fatties (I really like the hot ones) added high temperature cheddar, diced taters, diced red and green peppers. Mixed it up and made two Mega fatties. They look like meat loafs!

    More to come ...

    Gorgeous smoke Debi. Had to fully engage my automatic drool control to save my keyboard from damages. Your photos are top notch also.

    Deb, looks great. Nothing better than a full smoker, unless it's 2 full smokers. Keep up the good "Q"

    OKay ega fatties are done. That pan ther're on is a 12" pizza pan. The diced taters are nice and soft and the cheese is intact. I still don't know what they do to make the cheese hold up in the smoker.

    MAN IS IT POURING! my shelter hides the smoker but my roof drips right down my back! Ah well I'm smokin'!

    Paul -

    I don't know but I'm thinking they're out of season or something. I haven't seen any in about three weeks and I went to 3 Wal-Marts, Shop Rite and Stop and Shop this week.

    I barely found a brisket, Only found two and one was about 50% fat mine was about a 1/3. Sad ...[​IMG]

    Hats off! [​IMG]

    I just wish that I had that many folks to feed!

    I can't decide what to do next? ABTs are on the list for sure, maybe some dead fish? Yardbird? Who knows?

    Ok Debi, fatties are on the list for the next smoke. Can you answer me one question? What is high temp. cheese? I've been wanting to make a fatty or 2 for some time now, but after seeing them pic's this'll be the week end. I have a butt ready for bacon, and a brisket, so there's plenty of room.
