Just loaded the smoker. Doing a 20# ready to cook Easter ham, 2 marinaded pork tenderloins, 4 fatties, a chicken, and a pound of pig candy[first time]. Weather is 20* with 10-15 mph. winds from the NW. Preped everything last night. Temp dropped after loading, working on that now.

HEY man, I feel your pain. I'm on the other side of STL and have the same weather. Got a 12# ham on. But its all good cause the family loves me for it. Plus I just got off work so I've got a reason for a few adult beverages.

Well Gunslinger, looks like we'll be smoking this 81/2 pound monster I just picked up. Starting it first thing tommorow morning.



Have to put the wind break back up that we took down when it was 70* a week ago. Suppose to be a high of 36* tommorow and breazy.

Got my 6 lb. prime rib on @ 1:10 ... wrestling with the temp. now as it is only 26º with wind out of the west @ 11 gusting 20 mph. Snowed most of the morning ... partially sunny now.

Also made up my first ABTs this morning ... should be a nice appetizer this afternoon.

Using apple & mesquite ... will give her a spritz later with apple juice and Old Monk dark rum.

Wow reading about those temps is making me cold! I'm taking a break. Just finished prepping ABT's stuffed with cream cheese, sausage and mex. cheese blend. Hope I did it right. I folded the wimpy-cooked bacon lengthwise for a bit more holding power to keep the stuff in. Don't have a rack, just have to lay them right on the smoker grate.

Next item is Dutch's beans......after a beer.

Did my ABT s also with wimpy bacon and cream cheese mixed with crispy bacon, fresh garlic, and a bit of Cajun spice ... skewered and placed over a aluminum loaf pan as I have seen in the ABT section.

Can't wait to try 'em .....

Sounds real good to me Key. If you have a couple metal skewers you can also do them this way. It also holds the bacon in place at the same time.
