And your point is........?

Of course you do, and that's what your husband is for. V, really, the kids and dogs are great, your WOD's (o-lifting) are / is awesome and I assume you have a killer butt, but really, quit making excuses and get that smoker fired up.

Life is short, BBQ more.

No excuses, no point - just stating a fact.

Looked at the cookshack, but kindaout of our price range. Thinking of just making hillbilly smoker out of a 50 gallon drum with holes drilled strategically, an old disc blade to hold the coals and some giant stainless steal S hooks to hold the meat and some rebar to hang it on. Anyone got one of these?

Electric? Charcoal is the only way to go, and it won't go belly up! Weber Smokey Mountain is terrific.

Working on one right now (because you can't have too many smokers ). As soon as my camera recharges, I'll post pics.

yeah, yeah, I know. But I don't have to worry about the temp too much with an electric. I'll check out the Weber.

Re: The BBQ Thread

Chicken quarters came out pretty good. The homemade rub was pretty tangy, smoke time was about 2:45 at 235 temp, next time, might go a little longer or more slightly higher temp.

Next up, ribs this weekend.

Lookin' good Jay. This, and your fitday for today, has me drooling again (what a surprise ).

BTW for anyone looking for some good info on BBQ, check out this forum http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=5 (wfs). Jay already posted this earlier in the thread but I figured I would give it a bump because it also has a lot of pics of people's BBQ (before and after shots), which is always fun to look at.

Re: The BBQ Thread

I've been grilling for the last couple of weeks and will be firing the big smoker up weekend after next for this spring's first batch of 'cue. Here's a batch for my Christmas party, which was the last time the big smoker got a workout. Three turkeys and a brisket flat in the smoke:

And this is why I need to make a road trip to Texas. BBQ and Rip in one state, does it get better then that.

Brian, those birds look great, Brisket would be a great warm up to main course.

Re: The BBQ Thread

Got a request to "bring meat" to my in-laws Easter celebration. Started "buying meat" today. Two slabs and a brisket flat so far.

A bacon explosion, possibly using home-made venison italian sausage, will get added. May do some pulled pork, and possibly a whole venison backstrap.

Wild pig is being held in reserve for a party with our local CrossFit box.
