Yep that's right, the smokes so thick in the air and the temps hot enough that one could clip a tri tip to the clothes line and smoke er up! It'd take a bit more time than I wanted it too so I fired up the Mini. Cherry, Pecan, Kingsford Blue. Ran the smoker at 240*. Smoked the tip to 130*. Resting in foil as I type. Smoke away!!!
