Hi all, After a crazy last two weeks, I get to spend some quality time with my stick burner. Tonight, I am starting with this: I got this packer from my chef at work (a country club). It's not the best one I have ever gotten, but it will work. Going to try suspending some fat over the flat end, because I think it's on the thin side. Keeping it simple with mustard, salt and pepper: I thought I would throw in this pic of my fire box. I have taken to putting some chunks of lump and wood off to the side of the fire. Everything ignites right away and I have had a couple pretty smooth cooks doing this. I found that I couldn't do it with just splits. I need a little lump to keep the base of coals happening. Home for next six to eight hours: See ya' at wrap time! Planning on laying on the smoke for 6 to 8 and then wrapping and finishing in the oven. Thanks for reading!
