    Watcha cooking, I have a Weber bullet smoker always did chicken, ribs and pork butt. I have been afraid I will ruin a brisket. I do a lot of reading on the Amazing Ribs website. They have good info. there

    12 lbs. of some really lean pork loin . . . . . .

    Copious quantities of mesquite wood in with the charcoal. Got a new meat slicer (posted in the impulse buy thread) that needs a workout. Pot luck dinner at church tonight. I'm keeping back 4 lbs. for "personal consumption."

    Every now and then I think about getting a smoker and learning to use it, but then I remember that I'm 20 minutes from one of the best BBQ joints in the South and my natural laziness kicks in.

    I might get pretty good at it, but they'd still do it better. That does look good, though.

    12 lbs. of pork loin - about $18
    Half a bag of mesquite wood - about $3
    A bit of starter charcoal - about $2

    I will be feeding a bunch of folks for $23 - no tip required. And I get to drink a beer or three (OK, two) while cooking it.

    How much was the smoker? Not arguing, just curious.

    I bought it 16 years ago (2003) for about $120.

    It's an old Brinkman. Haven't seen one in this style for quite a long time. Everything these days are high tech with the pellets, Bluetooth temp gauges, etc.

    Not knowing how those pellets are made, how they "hold together," scares me.

    I use large wood chunks.

    I like old skool . . . .

    No worries Zoid. It will keep cooking

    I’ve run my smoker in the rain and snow

    Might have to keep a closer eye on it, make sure the rain doesn’t cool it off to much.

    NOT. At least I don't get little "ding-a-lings" when y'all reply.

    That's what drives me nuts . . . .

    More thunder . . . .

    I'm also back working on the stands again. Just had a great idea that I need to incorporate into the next batch.

    There oughta be a law against thunderstorms on the weekend.

    The local pro-2A chapter had an open carry picnic scheduled this afternoon but the weather doesn't look promising for them.

    So little ding-a-lings annoy you ? :) Sorry, couldn’t resist. I swear I’m going to grow up before I get to 60.
