well i hadnt smoked for a while or posted much lately so i did this last week. nothing fancy and it was a little late to get the brinkman going so i did a grill smoke. wet hickory in foil over fire and the meat on other side off heat. rubbed the 1/2 picnic down good and sat on cold side of grill. wet chips on right over low fire. this BBQ pro is 13 years old give or take a year. its WELL seasoned and really does good with these slow smokes. have done over a hundred easy. take less time than a smoker and i use it as an alternative to slow smoking on short notice. good ring full of juice and mighty fine. i need to go through the freezor and make sure i still have a turky for thanksgiving. coming soon. think i have one fro this spring. got 2 big ones for $.88 a lb.
