    Finally a weekend off so I took advantage of it and cooked up some CSR that I bought on sale for $0.97 lb. I also did some stuff chicken breast wrapped in bacon.

    Used a little bit of yellow mustard and Jeff's Rib Rub.


    CSR are in the Smoker! [​IMG]


    Chicken breast with a corn bread stuffing wrapped with bacon.

    I kept the it simple using some canadian steak

    seasoning. (BTW, I forgot to take some finish pics before we cut

    them up, but I do have one with everything plated).


    I cooked the CSR's using 3-2-1 method. A few was falling off the

    bone, but the thicker ones were just tender and had a nice tug

    like consistency.


    Plated up with some modified wicked baked beans, home made

    biscuits, and some head country BBQ sauce. I ate every last bit

    of it! [​IMG]

    I also want to add the smoke flavor was not as strong as I would like it, but I had a little problem in the first 30-45 mins with the AMNPS not staying lit. I think it was the way I had it on the porch (was afraid it was going to rain) limiting the air flow. Once I made some adjustment the smoke was flowing good and strong!

    What did you change to get your AMNPS going?

    First, due to the rain I moved the smoker on to the front porch. The positioning I had it in had the the chip loader in the corner with two walls (check the picture above it was pretty much cram in the corner), and as far as I could tell it was limiting the air flow. I reposition it as much as I could and took the ship loader out completely. Once I did that the blue smoke was flowing like a charm! [​IMG]    I also fired up four Kingsford charcoal and put them in a tin pan hoping to get a smoke ring... but No Luck! [​IMG]

    I tried adding small pieces of charcoal to the AMNPS during testing, but it was for starting purposes.  I've got a customer who breaks up charcoal briquettes, and throws them in the AMNPS with the pellets.  He claims it creates a smoke ring, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Very cool that you got your MES Blowin' Smoke by moving things around
