...my better half has had a bad bad week at work, so wanted to bring her spirits up ( Monday is her birthday and we have a long weekend )....

Yesterday evening I took a 2 kg piece of roast beef and dry rubbed it with Don Marco's Mafia Coffee rub (very good stuff)... Then put it thro the foodsaver and back in the fridge for today....

...took it out the fridge to come to room temp. and fired up the normal Saffire this time, decided after John's poll to try the Cherry wood chips as I got a few free samples from the trade fair....

....after burning off for a while, added the deflector (yup a couple of times I forgot the drip tray so it's not that clean any more!)...

.....maverick was showing silly temperatures at the grid...and I know the dome therm has always been real close to all readings in all cooks...but the probe is new.....seems it is reading wrong, must test it with boiling water and see if it needs calibrating if possible...

After the beef reached 125F took it out, foiled it and put in the thermos box...

Got the salad ready and took the baked potatoes out the oven (didn't want smoky potatoes)...

Prepared the peaches, mango and pears ready and put them in the Saffire..
