New, new & more new

  1. I've always been the kind a guy jumped into things headfirst without looking. I guess nothings changed. Last week I went out and bought myself a new smoker . It's a Oklahoma Joe highlander. in the past I've always use briquettes for grilling and smoking on my Charcoal Grill so I figure why change now. Then I got to write about how so many of you seem to prefer lump charcoal. And thought heck I might as well try it out. So today I went out and found some frontier brand natural hardwood lump charcoal. I also found some pecan wood chips while I was out. Been wanting to try those for a while now. And since I had subscribed to the how-to five step tutorial on smoking I decided that I had to try a fatty. I just got home a while ago and fired up my smoker with the lump charcoal. Went inside and rolled myself a fatty. Figured since I was already going to have the smoker fired up might as well throw a butt on there too. Here's a few prep shots to get you going.
    my bacon weave
    I went with smoked sausage instead of breakfast sausage
    loaded it up with some peppers, onions, Soriano peppers & Swiss cheese.
    all rolled up and ready to smoke.
     
  2. I had to help my wife for a bit. When I left the Fattie it was at 145, 30 minutes later it was at 170. A little more done than I would have liked but it tastes great. I'll be trying this one again for sure

  5. Butts almost done, do you know how hard it is to keep from opening the lid on the smoker just so you can smell the meat better. :drool:
