    Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone. I've been smoking food all weekend, and I'm very thankful for the sacrifice those who serve or have served in our military.

    This weekend's line up include smoked pork chops Friday night, smoked lake trout Saturday night, and today is baby back ribs with a side of chicken drum sticks as a snack!

    2.5 hours at about 300.

    just three lumps of hickory that were gone in about 45 minutes or so

    about the perfect smoke flavor for the wife and kids.
