Today's local weather is sub par for grilling. Good thing I'm not grilling.........I'm kamado smoking in fairly weatherproof fashion. The Big Joe's cart rolls with supreme ease and I scooted it up close to the door. The JoeBlow was used with zero trouble and lit the lump quickly while I stood beneath the overhang and stayed dry. It was pouring down rain at the time. As soon as the grill was lit and coming up to temp the rain stopped, of course. Oh well, I'm ready when the next band comes through. Looks like it's going to be this way all day.....perhaps all week. So nice to be able to peek out the door and make any needed adjustments. So.....what am a smoking ? St. Lois cut spares. I'd let the Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head base rub set up and glaze over and then hit it with my old standard, Cimarron Doc's. Huge chunks of lump enhanced with Bosco's peach wood.
I always laugh when folks talk about "can't wait for grilling season". In this state....it's always grilling season. Yesterday was no exception. I really have mad respect for my Q brothers and sistas who are grilling it up in the ice & snow in other parts of the globe. I'd be doing the same...but doubtful it'd be wearing shorts and flip-flops like I was on yesterday's cooking. It was time to replace my old reliable electric lighter. It works like a champ, but it takes a while and isn't really one that you can be very precise with and target just one or two pieces of lump to ignite for times when you just want a slow'n'low cook. Fired up my grilling tunes in the kitchen and started having fun ! It took very little time at all....standing there with my JoeBlow in one hand.....beer in the other.......and then the fireworks happened before my eyes. I didn't time it...but my estimation was it was under 3 mins. It has a low vibration thing that was therapeutic on my jacked up wrist. Win-Win. Funny thing is that the JoeBlow was almost.....almost cool to the touch in all parts immediately afterwards. Had these raw wing parts dusted heavily with my favorite wing rub. It makes a hot wing that's not offensively hot and has a great flavor. Mad Hunky Hot Wang! Also had to throw in my favorite grilling sausage. A great bacon, cranberry, sunflower seed salad right out of one of those bagged mixes. These things seem to get better all the time. This one had some type of orange-cider vinegar dressing that I wish I could find in gallon sized bottles It was a split between my tribe....Williamson Bros Original vs The Shed Southern Sweet & Spicy.....both are great on wings & sausage. It's going to take many more cooks to decide.
