Super Bowl's Over..how was your cook

abt's were pretty good....started them on the smoker, finished on the grill...pretty good. Brats on the smoker, finished on the grill, with pre-cooked sausages....in a pan with beer and butter, no onions (don't ask).
Pretty good.

Wings in the deep fryer. Because of unforseen problems (two bitches showed up 2 hours late), the first batch was EXTRA crispy. These however, turned out to be popular! The rest were also well received...3 types, A1 Chicago, Buffalo, jamaican jerk...grilled. The jerks were the least favorite, maybe because I glopped on extra sauce after grilling...they weren't as neat looking as the fried that were sauced in bowls.

That's it....lot's of gratuitous comments...will wait till tomorrow to grill my closest friend for true feedback!!

Loaded the WSM (at least the top rack) with Pork Butt. Used the Mr. Brown recipe. Came out good and everybody liked it. Although I did get some people talking about the 'heat'.

Used the Guru on 'ramp mode'. It bothers me the temp it lets it pit get to at the start, but after a while it starts 'ramping' down and everything is okay.

I'm on a mission to get more folks around here to eat brats.....they're just not that popular for some reason...a couple of people even looked over my spread yesterday and said.. "Got any regular hot dogs?"

My friend had never had brats at all and really liked 'em. Me? I liked firing up the coals using a bunch of twigs and sticks (hadn't brought my chimney starter with me). Fire is FUN! And farms are fun, cuz you can burn the heck out of things.
Susan, That is how I am still starting my fire! When I get the new pit I will probably use the gas assist though! Brisket was oh-s0-good! Butts were just so-so. I got em done too early and they sat foiled way too long! Too much beer. Too much spicy foodway too late. Pass the rolaids! Woodman

My WSM ended up sitting out on the deck enjoying the 60 degrees temps WITH THE COVER ON! Long story, but I did however find out my wife is in charge of EVERYTHING I DO?!

She ended up making enchiladas, and was going to make jalapeno poppers but didn't WAKE UP IN TIME! UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't it start out at your pit pre-set temp and just lower it as it gets closer to your meat temp??

I did 5 butts, pretty much a full load for the WSM (probably could squeeze 1 more on). I did three Southern Sucor rub and two with Fatz's Pig Powder. Hay Fatz, great stuff. The leftovers at the firehouse are usually shit canned, but yesterday they were fighting for the leftovers to take home. Welcome to BBQ brother firemen!!!

Nick and Bill,
When I have used the 'ramp mode' it always has started at a higher temp. Up to 30 degs (or more) higher than what I had it set at. I had the alarm on my NU-Temp set 30* above what I had the pit temp set on the Guru. It went off. As the meat cooks it starts lowering the temp and most of the cook it is right in the tolerance range for were I have it set. I saw a chart in some of the Guru info on line, and this seems to be doing what the chart showed. Higher temp at first, then your set range temp, then dropping temp. Is this not how yours are working? From you posts... sounds like no.

I just used the ramp mode for the first time Sat. nite. Ya know, your right now that I think about it, I went to a party after I set it and came home 5 hours later and the pit was 15* higher than I set it. I just thought the pit probe was having the heat blocked by all of the meat on the WSM (5 butts). Later it settled to the 210* that I set it at. I did finally figure out how to use the good neighbor feature and thought that was great. Thanks for the help Chris that I didn't know I was looking for!!
