Sometimes life is good



Life is good. I have my new WSM that the little big man helped me put together and my new DR.BBQ All year long cook book came in today and so did the new Springsteen CD the Seeger Sessions. I started this thread because I didn’t want the Holy Shark thread to go off on a tangent. I loaded the WSM with Lump because it was what I had available, I did however use some Kingsford as the starter coal. I’m getting some slight temp fluctuation but I figure it’s from a combination of the lump and it being somewhat windy today. Any thought’s or comments?
I can deal with the fluctuations they are not huge about 10* -15* from 235-250*. I am cooking some chicken breast’s (bone in) I picked up at BJ’s I was going to do them on Buford along with some ribs I picked up for tomorrow. But when the WSM came I just had to fire it up. I will be doing the ribs tomorrow on Buford they are loin ribs that I got at a good price. I’ll probably do a fatty or smoke some dogs for lunch. The boys dig the smoked hot dogs. Well I am having a hell of a day and if I didn’t call of last week Friday, today would be a wellness day but.. If you want to play ya got to pay. I’ll update you if I can. :biggrin:

You'll get some fluctuation (everybody does but Larry) but that isn't a problem. Just don't be too quick to make adjustments or you might over compensate.
Looks like the day couldn't get much better.

I also don't get any fluctuations in temps, but I use a guru. It will also get better after a few cooks when you get some grease building up and it helps seal from section to section. But temp swings 10 or 15* won't make a difference! And your right, life is good!

Here’s a couple of pics of the first cook on WSM. It will be nice to now have a choice but I think Buford will still get plenty of use. I need to experiment with the WSM and wood chuck use. I‘ve got to go to a wedding in Pa this weekend so I’m doing so ribs and sides on Buford today to get my BBQ fix.

The skin was actually edible. It was half way crispy, I read some where that if you put a decent amount of salt on it. The skin will crisp. It’s ribs and Sub Atomic Dinosaur Turds today on Buford. I grabbed some banana peppers and stuffed them and wrapped them. I might do a fatty to go with them for lunch. They are ready to go on now.

This is what’s cooking today. The ABT’s and Fatty is almost done. I’m going to cut the grass and then it’s time to eat.

If you leave now you can be here in time for the ABT's and Fatty's to be ready. I tossed some left over pulled pork in the ABTs. I'm thinking about mixing some homemade apple butter into the Sauce instead of the Apple Juice and Honey route I usually go. What do you think?

Hell, I wouldn't be able to stay long ~ Gotta pick up the kids from school.. Besides, I'm gettin' ready to poke a hole in the RK #-o to mount a Guru ~ Just got back from HD with a Unibit 3-Pack.. [-o<

Apple butter in the sauce? Hmmmm.. :-k That might could work.
