    I wasn't sure where to put this (beef or pork), but since I'm doing more pork than beef, I thought this would be a good place. ;-)

    Tomorrow (5/28/11) I'm whipping up the beginning of the Memorial Day weekend correctly -

    1st at bat - 8 pound beef brisket.

    Rubbed & in the fridge. Waiting for tomorrow---

    2nd up is 10+ pounds of Baby Backs. Rubbed & waiting---

    I cut them into 1/2 racks for easier maneuverability.

    3rd, 4th & 5th are not pictured (sorry). 3rd is around 4 pounds of locally made semi-dry pork sausage. 4th is a 4 pound venison ham. I forgot to take a picture of it, it's marinating as I type. 5th is a big ole yard buzzard.

    I wasn't going to do the chicken, but my wife told me that some people might not like ribs, brisket & deer.  I think she's nuts, but I won't tell her that!!

    AND----last but not least----the sauce. My own recipe. When I put labels on to sell, it's called "B.P.'s Original 3rd Helping BBQ Sauce"

    I'll post more pics as the smoke rolls.

    Looks like a good start,

    How large is your smoker?

    Or are you planning on stagering your smoke?

    Staggering the smoke. Brisket 1st, then ribs & deer. Chicken & sausage last. I'll do the chicken on a regular grill. Gonna be a long day, but completely enjoyable!

    Since I sell the sauce locally, I don't want to step on any toes in this forum. I don't know if doing that is against the rules. BUT---email me your address and I might be able to send a sample. [email protected]

    I'm using hickory for the brisket. Covering it when I put the ribs/deer on and using hickory & apple for them.  Straight apple for the sausage & chicken.

    Step 1 is complete. Brisket has been smoked. Now to hold the temp around 225 - 240 till the ribs go on. 1 - 1 1/4 hours before ribs go on.

    OK...I'm sorry for the delay in getting q-view & updating. As you read above, thunderstorms ran through my area yesterday.....right in the middle of my smoke!!!

    I didn't get pics due to running around like a mad man. When guests started arriving, one of them worked as a photographer. So, we can thank Mike D. for the pics.

    The weather DID clear up for most of the rest of the day. Started raining again as I was getting the meat off the smoker.

    Plans changed a little due to weather.....instead of smoking the chicken & sausage, I put them on the grill. :-(

    Anyway, thanks for the good luck wishes....enjoy the pics -

    Strange smoke ring. Could that be from the massive amount of humidity?

    Opps...a little blurry. Sorry

    The photographer Mike D. after his 3rd plate!!

    It turned out good. I didn't get pics of the venison, but it was good also.

    I'm tired...going back to bed. Ya'll have fun!
