ABTs, Pork Shoulder, and Yard Bird ready for romancin'.
In the MES where the magic starts to happen.
ABTs are done!
They look good, bet they did not last long
Lookin good UNC!
that bacon looks nice and crisp, is that all just from smoking or did you do anything special to get that result? how long were they in there?
Love the curling smoke picture!
Nice job on those ABTs! The bacon does look nice and crisp.
The bacon was fairly crisp but the lighting in the room made the picture turn out darker than life. I had the MES set for 225 and the ABTs were in smoke for about 3.5 hours. I used the top shelf - I get the best results fot ABTs up high.
Chicken turned out great too. The pork shoulder is wrapped in foil and towels so the Q-View will have to wait on that one. Here is the chicken:
Again, the lighting makes it look darker than it really is. The meat is tennder and juicy yet is cooked all the way to the bone. This bird was on smoke for 6 hours at 225.
wow, that chicken is rockin'!
it ALL looks good, but that bird is something else!
Great job man that is some great looking Q - I would be happy to eat that for ya
The pork turned out great too but I am sad to say I did not capture the moment on film. One more note on the ABTs - Basha's grocery actually sells those guys by the pound here so it is really easy to just slap them on a rack and turn on the smoke.
The chicken was the best of the lot. The wings and thighs seperated with very little effort. Even the breast was juicy.
I used Jack Daniel's wood chips but had a hard time keeping them smoldering at 225. I usually use hickory but prefer apple when I can get it.
Very nice smoke, I hate the film ran out when you got to the Pork!
that looks awesome
Nice job , made me hungry for some abts, and some chicken
My oh my, that is one tasty looking bird you got there.... Kudos on a nice smoke!!! I am also a big fan of the JD chips... I find they mix really well with the apple...
These guys showed-up the day after the smoke. Think they wanted to join the party?
If I was one of them, I would not hang around your house too long!
Nice smoker load Uncle Flappy,
Hell of a spread. How'd that pork turn out?
