    Whoa. I cant believe that Ive gone three weekends in a row without smokin something. Life just gets too busy doin other peoples stuff...

    Today though its different. Two slabs of back ribs rubbed in chipotle tobasco and then a spicy cajun rub. Smoked 2.5-1.5-1 sorta. Pecan with a little hickory and mulberry. Still about an hour to go. Smells great.

    The ABTs (18 of them) were gone within minutes of leaving the smoker.

    Life is good!

    Sounds really good, I love chipotle tobasco.
    Mulberry huh? Interesting blend of wood you have going. Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

    Ya know... I just spent 80 bucks on a 13# beef strip loin for grillin steaks. Three weeks ago it was a $24 dollar brisket. Before that it was 72 bucks on a case of back ribs. If I buy a camera Im afraid that there aint gonna be much to take pics of... sorry... I win you lose...

    I love mulberry. It is sorta mild like apple but it stands up much bolder in my opinion. I also get a good bed of coals while apple just turns to ash. It adds a nice sweetness to the hickory.

    I know how you feel. It's been a couple of weeks for me too. Had to do some chicken quarters just to curb the BBQ-Jonez.

    I've gotten into the habit lately of everytime I go to the grocery store of picking up something I have no plans to smoke right away. It's great cause I'm starting to build up the freezer supply. So this way I'm getting a piece here and there and not spending a ton of money all at once.

    Hey thats what freezers are for...

    I happen to work in a feedmill that is part of a major corp. They also own processing plant around the country. As a benifit I can sometimes get good deals on meat. Such as $1.55/lb on a case (48#) 85/15 ground beef, $4.25/lb on whole ribeye (choice or better) And occasionally pork loin ribs(thats back ribs at around $72 bucks for 12 slabs). The job sucks but without it my eating habits would go straight into the toilet...

    Oh yeah, I use my freezer ALOT!
