Semi New Guy from Up North

  1. Hey folks, been lurking for a bit & finally getting to say hi. I'm Jamie from Truro NS Canada & am in the middle of a smoker build. I got a heavy steel filing cabinet & have the stack on top yesterday. I'm putting 2 of the 4 drawers in the junk heap & hinging the doors for ease of use. The bottom drawer will be dual use- charcoal/wood & a second drawer kept for a gas stove set-up that is removable. I have steel mesh scavenged at work for the drawer bottoms(sliders intact) and old fridge grates as back-ups. My wife also got me a remote thermometer for Christmas. I have ribs in the feeezer screaming to be let out, a brisket ready to be ordered, as well as apple & alder trees ready for razing at my best bud's place. The pork loin i smoked on the bbq in Dec. was to die for, sweet chops!!
    I have some maple sticks ready to burn out the casing & some hickory to season the thing when i'm done. Work was a tad slow last week, so to make it look like I was doing paperwork at my machine, I designed these smoker carts. i'm not the best artist, so take the drawings as you will. I did one simple one which I think I might just make up, and the "Cadillac" WarWagon #2 was just wasting the last 40 minutes of my day. Hope y'all like the stuff. Jamie

  17. The El Commodore is getting the fire tomorrow. Gonna play with the stack & inlet to maintain a constant temp for a while. Using maple, as it was free, and dry. Thanks to my co-workers busting pallets, I spent my lunch break dismantling & cutting it up into foot long pieces. Only thing i have left to do is get a thermometer/temp gauge & we's a cookin' !!

    Not sure which to do 1st, a pork shoulder for pulled, or the spares I have in the freezer???[​IMG]
     
  18. Why not both [​IMG]
     
  19. Ribs are in there riiiight now. Marinated in a bit of AJ & some spices I had around, then rubbed with Magic Dust & left overnight. 3-2-1 SUPPER!!! Using a Southwest Chipotle finishing sauce I adulterated with some grated apple, brown sugar & soya sauce. Qview later!!
     
  20. Sounds wonderful... Qview?
