    While not specifically for Labor day I have a big smoke planned for one of those days.  Looking at 4 ~5-7# pork shoulders, 2 turkey breasts, 2 whole chickens and a brisket or two.  I am sure once the neighbors hear about the plans or smell the smoker I will get a request or two as well.  May throw a fatty on for grins.  Still trying to work out how to load the smoker.  Thinking poultry on the bottom, then pork with beef on top.  Any suggestions?
  7. That sounds like a plan. Chicken always on bottom.

    Happy smoken.

  8. I'm a rib man too!!!

    However, I also like my chicken breasts.

    So, maybe both!!! :banana_smiley:

    ive got 4 wild turkeys in the freezer so im thinking about doing a whole smoked turkey if im not out scouting putting up blinds for deer season here in south dakota. archery season is coming fast. 
  10. A 15lb brisket & baked beans with a delta coleslaw[​IMG] and lots of beer
  11. The pulled pork is already smoked, vacuum sealed and frozen.  This leaves grill space to do some kind of bird, or maybe some ribs.  I was measuring some rib racks to see if they would fit in the mini or the WSM 14.5.  The Weber rack looks like it was exactly sized to be the maximum footprint for the WSM 14.5  I have a new preparation method I am itching to try on ABTs.  It involves vacuum marinating the jalapeno peppers, prior to stuffing and smoking.

    We're doing some pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches. A friend is also dropping off some rainbow trout that he caught on Blue Mesa Lake last week. I'm trying to decide whether to defrost and brine, or just defrost in the brine. Any opinions? 
  13. Labor day is just around the corner. What should I smoke[​IMG]?

    Happy smoken.

    Burgers and Dogs, maybe a steak at ELK CAMP - Cant wait!!!! (that would be really cool if it was backstrap!!!) but that would need to be fried with Oil dipped in  flour and covered in salt and pepper and lots of [​IMG]
