Hams in the Hole!!!

Hams in the WSM....btw, it's raining hard, up to 8 inches expected,
winds gusting over 45 mph, temp is 42 and wind chill is 33.

It's been quite an adventure getting the wsm lit and the hams on.
So only pics of the hams right now






These are ready to cook, I trimmed some of the skin/fat off to get
better smoke penetration. Using a little cherry to add to what they
already have, probably hickory or oak.

Jim make sure you are stocked with beer and bread, just incase you get flooded in you can drink and have ham sandwiches!

45 mph wind gusts!!!! might try it anyway...ever since that storm hit
us last spring and that EZ up went flying across the parking lot and
bashed into a SUV, I've been nervous about the wind! That was a
hell of a storm!

Good luck Cappy. Grab something to hold onto with one hand and a bottle in the other.

lol, first time you came down for ribs it was storming like hell!
Maybe the extra moisture was why they came out so good!
Haven't reached that level since!

You be careful with that fryer, Cappie. I don't want to see you in the middle of a fireball on youtube.com

I wish now I am without my smoker for at least 3 weeks while he is on the road doing long haul trucking. But he has something special in mind and he picked up the other 2 55 gallon drums I got and the plans I drew up for a double smoker .

Wow, eight inches of rain with lots of wind. Good luck Capn. I'm doing stacked 14 pounders in my WSM. Our forecast for turkey day is sunny, high of 15* and low -10*.
