    I am doing this as a payback for the above thread for him being honest. I called him today and asked if tommorow was ok, and he said I can't wait, thanks so much.

    8.32 pounds.

    I just layered the above ingredients over the top starting with wet first and had Carol rub them in.

    Flipped over a few times.

    All done, ready for the sear.

    On the Weber for the burn.


    This will be under the beans for the smoke flavor and to soften the onions. Any remaining rub and 2 cups of beef broth, and 1/2 vadalia onion sliced thin.

    Smoke at 230' till 160' - 170' and put into the above pan foiled at 190' for the night. I am using mesquite and hickory.

    I am serving 12 people and have 24 buns and a # 10 can of beans.

    Thanks for watching the QVIEW.

    Lookin' great, Ron!

    And referring to the previous thread which I missed totally....As for Karma, good things come to good people, but, the best things happen to the best people just when that best thing is needed....not before or after but when it needs to happen......think about it!

    Thanks doc, that's the way I feel also.

    Good point Ron.

    Thanks Dingle, not trying to make anyone look bad.

    I'm working on it, thanks.

    I'm sure they will.

    Now for the beans.

    I bought some Bushes naked Pintos and threw together some sauce from scratch.

    I used about 1 cup each catsup and 1 cup Kc BBQ and the rest of the ingredients and about 1/2 cup brown sugar.

    First taste Carol said yum, I tossed a few squirts of Tabasco and that was it.

    Here it is at 147'.

    Brushed on more Tashidas teriyaki for caramelizing .

    Thanks for watching more to come.

    Hey Ron, is the sauce for the beans in the pan under the butt? BTW, nice bark on that butt.

    BGC, check out this thread from FyrmnJ - he put 4 caster wheels on the bottom of his MES - very convenient to be able to roll it around. I went to Home Depot and got 4 for mine as well. The ones I got were more like $7.00 a piece though. I removed the 2 round feet held on by a large bolt and had to drill out one of the holes of the caster to fit. The other side is the leveler bolts which hold the casters on as well... didn't want to drill any holes in the MES so one bolt per caster - seems to be ok so far.

    SlickRat thanks. you forgot the link lol. ill look in electric smokers and see if i can find it. i want to get one for making summer sausages and smoked sausages from venison. my brinkman does ok but these seem that the temps would be easier to maintain without flareups.

    like this ?


    cool. we need to burn his. he plans on using it sat and i just read that the first burn king of smells real bad. so ill see if he wants to season it tonight. cant wait to see the pics ron.
