    Is he actually guarding the smoker or just waiting for some of what's inside?

    I'd bet they are newly planted and the props are there to help prop them up till they can take root and hold themselves up. Palms usually have dinkly little root balls when compared to other trees.

    Welcome.  Nice rig you got there.  Also, good looking Doberman.  I have been around that breed all my life.  Love them.

    Hey everyone - Thanks for the friendly welcome. I am a real rookie at smoking. believe me! I've over and under cooked everything I've put in my smoker. This weekend I plan to do a Boston and some ribs.  My issue seems to be that I cant get my smoker to maintain the right temp. i can get it to 225 but ends up dropping a lot within those 5-6 hours of the smoke... Hopefully I have better luck this weekend.

    To get a question answered, it usually works better to start a new thread with the problem in the Title. A lot of good answers are missed, because the question is hidden in a thread about something else.

    Welcome Jessedee. That is a good looking rig, and dog. I grew up with those all around me. the dog that is... Loved them.

    With your problem. I found that I had to keep a smaller fire. Checking it every so often, adding small sticks as needed. For mine it doesn't take much to keep it going. If i get a big fire and try to choke it down with the vents then it just almost kills it altogether. So small fire worked for me. (That is for my rig though. most rigs will cook different than others. But this is what worked for mine.)  <- Edit

    You will have to keep checking it every 30 min at first untill you get a good feel of it.  I like doing this though. I'm kind of a pyromaniac.  [​IMG]

    Hope this helps.
