    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    I am doing a 6 lb Prime Rib, 13 lb Packer Brisket, two 8 lb Pork Butts, and a 16 lb Turkey for today's meals.

    Prime Rib - Rubbed with Worchestersire sauce, kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, secret seasoning (friend makes it for me, but willl not give me the recipe), and a lil bit of Montreal Steak seasoning. Smoking with a mix of Pecan & Cherry wood. Taking to an internal temp of 125 then foiling and resting in cooler packed with towels for 15 minute transport plus 1+ hours wait til meal time.

    Brisket - rubbed with dijion mustard and Jeff's rub, vac sealed over night. Will sear on the grill SmokyOky style. Then smoke with a mix of Hickory & Oak woods.

    Pork Butts - rubbed with dijion mustard and Jeff's rub, vac sealed over night. Smoking with a mix of Hickory & Oak woods.

    Turkey - Brined 24 hours with a special secret recipe from a member here (Thanks! - you know who you are), lightly injected with a creole butter garlic sauce, rubbed with EVOO and spices. Grilling this one, but smoking with a hint of Apple & Cherry wood chips placed in a cast iron smoker box.

    Edit: No pictures of Turkey, they sliced it and ate it before I got any pictures - Sorry!

    Prime Rib just going in the smoker:

    Prime Rib 2 hours in to the smoke: Pit temp 275-285, Meat temp 100. Finished to 125 in 2hrs 50 min.

    Brisket & Butts just pulled from fridge and coming up to room temp for 1 hour:

    Brisket & Butts going on the smoker: lightly seared brisket - to afraid that the rub would brun to a crisp. Pit temp 215

    The Prime Rib was great! All though most complained that I did not cook it to death (scared of a little pink juice!), at the end of the rest period, just as I sliced it the internal temp was up to 138 - don't know why they were whinin'. I used a wee bit to much smoke again, so I will have to log that to memory and adjust on next Prime Rib I am doing on Tuesday.

    The Turkey was out of this world (thanks for the Brine SMF Member!). I actually ate more Turkey than I did the beef, and I usually don't like Turkey (everyone always over cooks it), that is why I always cook 2-3 different meats for Thanksgiving.
