    Just sort of a weird story. It has beeen to long since I smoked anything. Previously posted about pulling what I thought was a Tri tip roast, to find out they were steaks.

    Well still wanted to smoke something on Sunday and didn't realize the weather was coming so soon. Found an old chuck roast to smoke for pulled beef. Threw a cheeseburger bacon fattie together. threw some ABTs and Jarrod's baked beans on.

    Well it was fun about half way thru when the winds were kicking up to 50-70 miles per hour with the remnants of IKE comming thru. at one point the lights flickered in the house but clocks and TV kept working, so didn't think anything about it. Go outside to check and my MES is off. lost most of the temp and smoke.

    Long story short, finished the ABT's under the broiler and came out OK. We were hungry so they got eaten before the camera came out. The rest eventually got done, The fattie was a little dry. here's the Q VIEW of the fattie and beans.

    Monday night after work spent 2 hours with the kids cutting down limbs etc cleaning up! Oh well everyone's safe and electricity is on so guess I can't complain to much.

    Here's the bean recipe:

    We like it cause it doesn't have all the sugar I'm not supposed to eat.

    I am in northern Ohio. There was a lot of wind damage in Ohio and some folks won't have electricity for the rest of the week.

    I heard that a lot of the utility truck in your area went to Texas, not knowing you guys were going to get bad weather. I sure hope that's not the case.

    IT is!

    Mostly from the Cleveland area. They are getting them from PA, Indiana, and Toledo. Columbus is supposed to be a mess.

    Ya, Cleveland sent utility trucks to Texas. They are pulling from Toledo, PA, Indiana. I guess Columbus got the worst of it in Ohio.
