Wee hours smoking

Got up at 2:30 am to light up the lang for a brisket cook. Got everything going good. There was no wind...dead still.. with bright slice of moon, temp in the 40s. Had a adirondack chair pulled up to the fire box with a tripod light reading Chili Magazines and drinking hot coffee.
Sat there in the quiet for several hours soaking up the peace.
Love this Qing.

I long for a Lang.

That is a great way to spend the early hours.

Awesome!!! I totally agree... not a better way to spend the weee hours of the morning. Well, I take that back, theres two great ways.. I've always been partial to the sun coming up in the desert...just something magical about looking out over the hood of the big truck and seeing the many colors and all the shadows and such..One of the few things I miss bout runnin the road.

So how did the Brisket turn out? I'm assuming it's done by now? No pics yet?

Why BBQ

The fog from my breath swirled slowly
On this cold November morn.
And the wisps of smoke rose skyward
As the birds echoed up there scorn
Occasionally the sound of silence
Was shattered by the pop of a spark
Or the woeful cry of the neighbors dog
As he spoke into the dark
The pungent smell of fresh coffee
Blends in with the smells of fall
Leaves twisting and turning downward
As they answer to natures call
Words can't describe the sense of pleasure
As I add wood and tend my fire
All the sounds and smells of BBQ
Just feed my burning desire
Is this an act of sanity
To rise so early and perform this task
You evidently don't know BBQ
Or you wouldn't even have to ask
