    Have a few people coming over tonight for dinner.  They have not had my BBQ before, so playing is safe with PP.  I also had an idea for some apps, it is a play on ABTs.  Going with sweet peppers stuffed with sausage, cream cheese, garlic, and parm cheese.  Of course wrapped in bacon.  I haven't started those yet, but will post as I go today.  Here is the pics from this morning.

    Sounds to me like you have the makings for a great dinner! Side burner for charcoal starter...that's the only way to go, IMHO...nothing to it.

    The apps sound like a winner, too, especially if you don't know what their heat tolerances are. Ah, I just noticed the probed tater...gotta have a snack for the chef now and then...LOL!!!

    Good plan all around...gonna be some happy diners at your table tonight!

    Are you planning to use de-fatted drippings from the pan to make a finishing sauce for your PP?

    Been going for about 6 & 1/2 hours now.  Hit the stall at 154 for last 90 min.  Had a few temp spikes too, but bark still looking good.

    Here are the peppers I put together, won't put them on the smoker for a while yet, but they tasted pretty good cold!  The cream cheese and sausage together is just fantastic!

    Sausage, Cream cheese, parmasian, and some mozzarella mixed together.

    All stuffed and wrapped up with Bacon.  Ran out of bacon, so a few are going to melt all over, May have to be snacks for the chef after they get warmed up a bit.

    I usually defat the drippings, and just pour the juice right on the PP.  Nothing fancy, but sure does add some flavor!

    Here we go with the finish.  The PP came out great, very tender and moist.  My 2 year old ate about as much as I did.  Friends will be back for more.

    All cooked up ready to pull.

    Here are my peppers on the grill.  Trust me, all of these did not make it to serving time.

    All cooked up and ready to eat.  Man they were good.  Will be doing these again.

    Did some russets tossed in olive oil, and a little shake-n-bake sprinkled over the top.  Always a hit.

    Roasted Broc - 1st time, turned out well, think it needs to be cooked a bit longer.

    Pulled Pork came out great.

    Little Bear view for you.
