    Cooked on the smoker tonight. I have been wanting to try something like those big stuffed burgers I seen on here the other day, and a whole head of cauliflower. Cooked some dogs, and plain burgers for the kids.

    For some reason my pictures indoors come out crappy, but here goes.

    Little of this a little of that. Ground sirloin, red, yellow, orange, and green bell peppers, a yellow onion, fresh mushroom slices, Weber Smokey Mestique, gourmet hamburger seasonings, worcishire, provolone, and swiss cheese.

    On the smoker, hamburgers, corn on the cob, Jumbo stuffed burgers, and a head of cauliflower.

    An hour and a half or so in, added the hotdogs.

    Cauliflower (sorry about the picture)

    One of the Jumbo stuffed burgers, they had an awsome smoke rig. I wish the picture was better. (again, sorry about the picture)

    I have to figure out what I am doing wrong with my camera, but everything was great. And thank you to those who posted those inspiring post about their stuffed burgers.

    Do you have a camera that zooms when you are trying to focus the picture? Because if that is the case, then just wait until the pic comes into focus. What cha using there?

    I am not sure, it's a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi 10.1MP 55mm Lense + Extras

    Yeah. I think that when you are too close to your subject, your focus is still trying to lock in & you end up snapping the picture before this happens. Try this, stand further away from your pic, zoom in until you have clarity & desired closeness, then snap the pic. That might make the difference. Post back with a qview of a sample in the "TEST" area. Show me the results.

    Looks like you had a full load, everything looks great man.

    How did the temps hold for ya today?

    A while back my camera was turning out the same typw of pics and it turned out I had it set to a outdoor setting of some sort. I changed it to full auto and all is good now.

    Yea, I don't think I'll be doing those jumbo stuffed butgers for awhile. They were great, but man they were alot of work. lol
    The temps were much better, maybe a little high, but what I cooked did alright. I stayed at around 250 for over 2 1/2 hours, had to add a chimney of coals once. I still haven't got everything sealed up yet, and I need to make me another door for my firebox. That last real windy storm a couple weeks ago knocked our gazebo over on my smoker and bent the heck out of that door.
    I'll have to see if it has a separate setting for that. I know I have the one setting on sport, because I am rather shaky.

    What Caveman said----I used to have the same problem.

    If that doesn't help, set the beer down while taking the picture. It's much easier to hold the camera steady!

  8. beautiful looks like you had a bunch over!!!!!

    I was really tired when I replied to you last night, and somehow missed half of you reply. lol I think I have figured it out, the Auto Focus was off (I just figured out there was a little switch lol). This camera is sorta new to me, I am still figuring it out. Originally, I bought it for my wife about two years ago, she never used it except a couple off times. Well when I got on here and start getting into smoking more, I took it over.

    Beer's not the problem, I really don't drink much anymore, takes me several months to go through a six pack of Bud Longnecks, I still have one in the fridge. lol

    Thank you, yes I always have left overs, that's just the way I cook.

    Everything looks like it came out great (From what I can see. he he) I finally got around to making some stuffed burgers (we call them Juicy Lucy's being from MN) last weekend and I love them.

    It was all really good, but they sure take olot of work to make. I thnk I am going to try and find me a good patty mold before I do these again. I think that would make things a little easier, and help even out the burger meat.
