    2 - 4 rib roasts, about 9 lb. each.  after a night in cheesecloth in the fridge

    rubbed with paste of chopped garlic, Dijon, evoo, fresh parsley, thyme, old bay, pepper and possibly too much salt about 1-1/2 TB L. Nope salt just right J Plastic wrapped and back into fridge overnight.

     preheated cse to 300, then added chips, 3-4 oz - 1/2 cabernet oak.1/2 apple, meat, then lowering heat to 240.

    after about 1-1/2 hours, lowered heat to 225, they were 125 and 129 in a total of 3-1/2 hours!!! what the heck??

    had to baby them along til 5:30!  double foiled, added some cabernet & kept them in the smoker, but kept the heat LOW.

    plus 6 heads of garlic. our typical Christmas weather. This kept the rain off the smoker and me.

    That just looks awesome!  I lived in Renton for about 3 months 25 years ago, beautiful place.  
     
  4. Thank you dear! Cheers to you too. That looks sooo good. Your either watchin out for vampires or we share a passion for garlic too. You definitely know how to serve a good beer, good glasses aren't only for wine. We went to a steak joint not too long ago and I ordered a $9 abbey beer, the guy brought it to me in a frosted pint glass [​IMG]  We have to respect our brews and beef like the above. Merry Christmas darlin, from Amelia, me and our future sous chef.
