Getting into this winter weather smoking thing. 

decided to smoke some texas cut beef ribs, or dino ribs.

used the trusty weber with smokenator .  rubbed with my own memphis style rib rub and smoked with cherry and hickory.  cooked at around 225 - 250 for 5 hours.  foil tent for 15 minutes then chow down!

the outside temp was -7C or 19F.

Nice looking dinos!

I guess I am just strange, when I have lived elsewhere in the world in cooler climates, I love the outside when its cold. An outdoor fire to sit next to, with a hot toddy, exhaling vapors...... Its so invigorating! I really loved it.

I am guessing its why I si enjoy smoking and grilling in the winter months.

Excellent ribs ........ I am guessing that between bites there was some serious smiles if you could catch 'em in a hurry....LOL

Great job.

And here I thought the chiminea was a Tex Mex thing!

I like the looks of yours. It almost looks like an angry, 3-eyed dragon's face.

:sausage:

chimineas are popular here for people in the city who want a fire on there patio.  i was given this thing years ago and never used it till last year.  i dont really need to use one as i can have fires in my yard , but the fire pit is to far from my patio.

not very efficient, but after about 3 hours, really kicks heat. will hold a regular woodstove log.  i sit and dream of mods as i smoke meat.

Yes, the beauty of a chimnea is the build up of heat in the ceramics and the gradual release which follows. Although I rarely need one here in central Texas, I do use mine occasionally to provide radiating heat overnight for potted plants on the patio. When freezes threaten, we cover the plants; but I sometimes build a fire before dark and keep it stoked until bedtime. The chimnea is NOT covered, but it radiates enough heat to make a critical difference in cold damage to plants.
