    Last night while walking around the grocery store aimlessly having trouble deciding what I wanted to smoke and making very little progress. I decided I would do a little bit of everything. I didn't get any pictures of the preparation but I got some before and will get some after pictures. For the ribs and pork shoulder I rubbed it down with some plow boys dry rub. The fatty was made with chorizo, grilled peppers, onions, and hard boiled eggs, wrapped in everyone's favorite peppercorn bacon! The salmon I made a brine with dark rum, sea salt, brown sugar, and fresh ground pepper. This is my first time smoking salmon so I got a smaller piece just in case doesn't turn out well. I will keep the updates coming and hope everyone is enjoying the opening day of football, Go Ravens!!!!!!!
  2. looks good so far. Nice weave on the fatty.

    Happy smoken.

  3. That all looks great! I want to try to smoke some salmon myself. I love it with cream cheese and bagels.

    Update #1: Pulled the salmon and it's looking pretty good I probably should have pulled it a little earlier but we will see what happens during the final taste test. The ribs are now foiled and back on the smoker for another 2 hours. Got the internal temp of the shoulder up to 113 still waiting on the stall. I added 3 water trays below the cooking surface and found that it's holding a more constant temperature however I'm having having a hard time keeping it above 200, it's been sitting at 185 for most of the day. This also might be that I'm just using charcoal and wood chips today and not wood/lump. I'm still going to let it run its course and see what happens. If I burn through all 30 pounds of charcoal I will just finish the shoulder in the oven.

    Looking good.

    Here's a tip, Instead of water, use sand in your pans, cover with foil. It will even out the heat and allow you to get higher temps.

    Thats a good idea, I will try that out next time. I never would have thought of it thanks for the tip.
