    I brought my new smoker to the campground for Independence Day cooking. Made ABTs, a chorizo fatty, potatoes, and a pork picnic for pulled pork.

    I didn't like the pork, thought it was too dry, but others enjoyed it!

    I'd planned to use some drippings, etc. for a finishing sauce, but no drippings, and I forgot other ingredients. It was about 9 lbs, fat side up, smoker mostly at 220-235, with hickory for about 8-10 hrs, all together about 15 hrs. No foiling. Squirted with an improvised juice that probably had too much sugar content. Removed at 197*, rested for an hour or so.

    The picnic was the only thing I could get that wasn't "enhanced". I'll be getting a good butt soon so I can try again. 

    The smoker did a great job holding a low temp, almost too low. [​IMG]

    Looks very tasty, I will have to try out those peppers sometime.

    Your ABT picture isn't working.
  3. Everything looks fantastic!!! The ABT's look like they came out really well.  I really like the chorizo fatty idea. Do you care to share what was in it?

    Cheers and great job with the Qview!!!

    Thanks, all!

    The fatty was chorizo/grass fed hamburger with mushrooms and onions. The cheese was cream cheese and shredded cheddar. Much easier than I expected. I softened the CC, then when I mixed in the cold cheddar, it just came together in a nice glob that I formed into a roll. Glad I used the lean grass-fed because that was some greasy cheap chorizo! I think the mild CC went well with the sausage, too.

    I don't care for chorizo, but I was trying to get my husband to overlook the part about me buying a smoker. It worked! I think he'd be happy if all he got from it was the ABTs  [​IMG]

    Just got a 9 lb butt, can't wait to smoke it this weekend!
