Mid week cook for the retired-results

Doing my usual mid week cook today and trying a couple of new things. My first beer can turkey using a Fosters can with herbs. Doing some beer brined catfish filets from a recipe in Mike Mills book. Also doing a slab of baby backs and some beef ribs. I'll let you know how things turn out.

Here's the outcome. The catfish was too salty and too smokey for me-wouldn't do it again. The beer can turkey turned out real good, the breast was moist and infused with the herb flavors-just like beer can chicken. Used Dave Kloses raspberry glaze on the pork ribs and while it was good, I like my usual glaze better. I also did the latticed bacon wrapped fatty and it turned out good - I stuffed it with hashbrowns, onions, peppers, scrambled eggs - forgot the cheese. Next time I will cook at a higher temp to get the bacon crisper. Here's a pic of the fatty and the turkey.
