I sometimes have sense enough to come in outa the rain......


Recommended Posts

Today's local weather is sub par for grilling.














Good thing I'm not grilling.........I'm kamado smoking in fairly weatherproof fashion.  :good:  




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.

Thank you, gentlemen !!!!




It feels GREAT to be playing with fire again.   :good:










Make sure you have water wings or one of the floaty things close by in case it gets deep .  








I suppose I could result to drastic measures and follow the obnoxious mermaid, Rosie Odonell's lead............

Well look at this....Dub posting pictures of his cook!!!

What weather app is that Dub, and no tunes for this one?

Cook on!



My Radar Pro



I highly, highly recommend it.    Stellar weather app.  Versatility and accuracy is amazing.



No tunes this morning......had Fox News on and was catching up on stuff.






Liking that Smokeware cap❗Cook on❗♨







I'm really enjoying this thing so far.



I like the tapered slot....working well for getting it settled in on 225.

An hour or two from being done.




Just checked.....














I have to make some decisions on sauce in a few minutes.

















Meantime......I'll sip on the a bottle of great suds that I've really grown to love these past few months:





































And you thought I meant beer-suds.   :-D



I've yet to try a version of Diet Snapple that I didn't really enjoy. :good:

      1kg back ribs from my local butcher, cooked using a modified 3-2-1 method over charcoal and cherry wood. And finished with a Bulleit bourbon glaze.
      Really pleased with how these came out, not fall of the bone but tender and juicy just how I like them!

      Does anyone have any experience with grilling whole squid? I toured my local "international" (their term) grocery store today and one item I saw was fresh whole squid. 
      I'd like to take a crack at grilling it, but don't want to waste money winging it. Any tips/guidelines you have would be appreciated! Happy grilling

      I have a question for the community about fire construction and how much charcoal I should be using when I set up a cook. I have a KJ Classic III and have been using the SloRoller for all of my low and slow cooks.
      On some of my larger cooks (one pork butt, a full brisket, and then two boneless pork shoulders) I have burned through all of my fuel before the cook was done. I filled the standard KJ ash basket with charcoal and then light it up with one KJ firestarter. I was smoking everything at around 250F and followed the heating method described by SmokingDad BBQ on his YouTube channel (it worked well!).
      Does anyone have an image of what their charcoal looks like when setting up for a 10lb brisket or pork butt?

      Hello There!
      Texan, currently living in Seattle, finally got a backyard to do some grilling in this summer!
      I'm currently grilling on a Weber performer, while I restore a Big Joe that I got off fb marketplace.  I have a thread in the DIY section with some photos if anyone is interested or has some good recommendations.  
      Can't wait to get cooking on the Kamado once it is up and running.  Most looking forward to cooking some pizzas and of course brisket, being a Texan!
