    A day long smoke [​IMG]
    phase one-Butt at 0700hrs
    phase two-Spare Ribs(3-2-1) at 1100hrs
    phase three-two Fatty at 1400hrs(subject to chance, might do another at
    1000hrs to snack on)
    Mission completion time-who cares, have plenty of fuel(Miller-Lite and
    charcoal)

    Phase one is off to a good start, was rubbed last night and saran wrapped for an early wake up call


    And for the warriors,Lt Butt, Sargent Rib and Private Fatty at the end of a hard day I have refreshments waiting for them also

    Phase one is well underway , charcoal used the Minion plan of attack with
    chunks of hickory and chips of mesquite in the formation. as you can see the smoke is rolling on the battlefield [​IMG]
     
  3. It looks like you have the troops well under control. Smoke on!

    Well the Butt has done well in battle so far but it is tired and resting in the
    plateau, so I have sent in the Ribs and some flap tasters. They are backed up by apple juice spray, foil and T-bones sticky apple rub for the last assault .

    Put together a new formulation of rub for the ribs & rubbed & wrapped em. also bagged a dozen wings with storebought wing sauce & rolled a fatty in the new rub (my 1st fatty)
    9:30 0930 checked charcoal supply & found it low off to the hardware to get an ample supply.
    10:30 1000 pulled meat from fridge to come up to room temp & loaded & lit charcoal chimney with charcoal briquettes.
    11:15 1115 dumped chimney & added cowboy lump charcoal & brining smoker up to temp.
    11:30 1130 scrub & oil grates & let it continue up to temp. (going slow so added more cowboy dang wind anyway)
    11:45 close enough they're goin on [​IMG]

    Sit-Rep

    The butt has left the plateau and rejoined the battle on it's way to 200°
    The ribs have been foiled and two Fatty's have been called to the front lines
    for support


    I hope the ribs didn't battle to long in the first hours of 3-2-1, they had almost a 1/2 pull back on the bones when they retreated to the foil. [​IMG]

    Well it's 1800 hrs and the battle is over, I hope I didn't let the ribs battle to
    long in the first phase of 3-2-1. They look good but have quite a bit of pull back but the bones are falling out



    The butt has finished it's battle and is ready to be "pulled" from duty



    I will keep you informed later as the commander (wife) gives the ribs a taste test
     
  11. blackhawk19

    blackhawk19 Master of the Pit OTBS Member

    Well the Ribs passed the taste test and the Butt has been pulled and the troops are on stand down. It was a good battle plan [​IMG]

    Love your sig line, I did call in Air Support, the B52's struck about a mile from
    base camp, you can see the smoke rising from the battlefield and I can tell you the ground was shaking

    crewdawg52 Master of the Pit OTBS Member

    Back in Nam (before my time), 52's carried 109 750 lbers. Serious tonnage!
    Without the big belly mod, they carry 54.

    Great smoking adventure with amazingly good looking results. Send me a pvt message if the troops need additional support in disposing of the meat selections.

    We loved them in Nam,they flew in formations of three and there accuracy was incredible. They were great for anything on the ground or below it( we had a lot of tunnel complexes). When they came on the emergency channel and called "Arc Light Strike" and gave the coordinates and you were flying in the area you you the hell out of dodge, oh yeah they also made good LZ's in
    the jungle[​IMG]
