Well, the chicken maybe and the green beans. The bacon in the fresh beans & onions with a little brown sugar then the cream cheese in the taters probably not so much..... still waiting on our new grill to arrive

Since we purchased stock in sprouts awhile back we have been shopping there more often. The quality of the produce is best around here anyhow.

I've used em' with limited success and a relatively low injury rate when welding.

I'm certain you make a plan, as a retired guy, you got all kinds of "planning" time......no sense wasting good Salmon, just found it ironic and comical at the same time. :shocked:

Its actually some of this: (six pepper blend)

With some real hungarian sweet paprika for color:

I would never do such a thing, i am just providing an option for you or kay to use as a test for/of your new smoker thats supposed to be delivered today.  By the way, do you have a big can of non stick spray and a fatty for the inagural /initial burn in?

Ya Know Nate not sure on  her plans to "spray"  My guess she will "season" it like she does her cast iron or something.

No fatty as of yet...but I see she has a Turkey thawing in the fridge so that may play a role. I shall ask her next time I see her.

yeah, all the spray does it act like a seasoning for cast iron and it also helps coat and protect the inside.

mike, a fatty as known in the BBQ world is basically a smoked sausage roll......think a roll of jimmy dean sausage that was smoked to 165deg internal temp, cooled a little and served like summer sausage. 

heres a few links for you.

Barrel arrived at 2:30pm. Lit it at 3:38pm with 5lbs of Kingsford Blue and a few chunks of Mulberry.

At 4pm when I had time I hung a 12lb Turkey in it.  It was just above freezing with a 11mph wind.

It's 5:30 pm and the bird is at 127 degrees.  Outside temp is 26 degrees, still breezy.

Barrel is running at 280 degrees. Which is impressive ...it just sits at that temp now since lit. Barely wiggles a degree or two either way. I can cool it, or warm it up with a slight air intake adjustment. But it's set it and forget it... so far other than experimenting, no real need for the Temp probes.

basically it just seems to work.

I will let you know how it turns out.

Turkey turned out excellent. With almost no "prep" except some pit rub and the Mulberry smoke, it tasted amazing.
