Albert, I will grant you that this board is awfully slow right now, but you could age a few years before you
worked your way through all the great material on this site. This is my favorite thread in fact. Just the meat
pics alone, excluding all the good tips and info and discussion, makes it a phenomenal thread. If you like
liquors, beer and wine there are equally as gigantic threads for those kinds of things round here....lotso passions
in the old asylum. Like no other board on the winternet, you will SURELY find it here. Welcome.

My WSM came this week, so I thought that yesterday being the hottest day of the year, would be the perfect time to fire him up for his inaugural smoke. I went with something easy to start with, a beer can chicken. There wasn't a whole lot of forethought put into is so I just did a quick rub with olive oil and a sprinkle of lemon pepper and Weber Kick'n Chicken seasoning. I also used the opportunity to start breaking my my new Tinsky I got in April.





The chicken could have been seasoned more, but the meat was perfect.
Right now I've got 8 lbs of bacon dry curing in the fridge, and I should be receiving my new a-maze-n smoker tomorrow, so sometime this weekend I'll be cold smoking the pork, and I promised the wife I'd do a turkey breast for her as well.

I picked up a Char Griller Akorn 2 weeks ago and I love this thing! Lowe's had them for $299 and with the cover, extra grate to holder the diffuser, and diffuser (a 14" glazed flowerpot water pan), I'm in it for $350 (12 month no interest). Always wanted a smoker/grill/kamado. It is metal with interior insulation and a porcelain glaze on the inside. I could never justify spending upwards of $1000 (or more) on a ceramic kamado, but I've always wanted one. This thing was cheap enough and built well enough for me to finally give the kamado world a try. It will hover at 225F or 250F and will jump up to damn hot very quickly. So far I've slow-cooker a 5 lb brisket and 3 full racks of baby back ribs. The brisket cooked at 230-240F for 4 hours and sat wrapped in foil, a towel, and in a cooler for 3 more hours. It was awesome! The ribs cooked at 350F for 1.5 hours, then I shut the vents and let it slowly cool to around 200F for another half hour or so. I skipped the sauce on the ribs, as the meat was rubbed prior to cooking and tasted great. Sorry no pictures this time, but I will get some next time. Butts are next. Costco has a two pack I'm eying.

Default Re: What's in your smoker?

For a 'discount" manufacturer, I like the Char-Griller stuff. I had a hand-me-down smoker that I got from a guy
whose landlord was threatening him to get it OFF the pool patio, so we threw it in my truck bed and I was smoking
the next weekend. But the bottom fell out after a couple more months of intense training. To replace it, I went with
the CG unit I have pictured a few pages back. Heavy gauge steel and perfect for my method of meat-smoking. I am
gonna be on the lookout for that egg-beater you got there and see it up close. Don't really NEED one, but I'd like
to take a gander...or smoke one.

I saw this page which is really descriptive http://bbq.setzler.net/2012/02/29/char-griller-kamado/

You'll love it, Brad. After years of looking at Primos, BGEs, Big Steel Kegs, etc., when I saw this guy at Lowe's I knew it was a done deal. I did buy some high temp nomex strip to further seal the lid and ash bottom seal. It comes with this tubular chinese finger trap-looking material as the sealing gasket. It works alright, but I wanted as close to air tight as I could get. It's a cooking machine!

Made a few more pizzas last night, hand tossed dough seared in a pan (comal) before loading it up and taking it out to the smoker. Cook for about 20 minutes at 400-450 then remove the lid to the smoker and move the pizzas over the coals to burn the bottoms a bit. The last part only takes a few seconds, so you have to keep them moving.

And that was enough time to cook the brisket?

wanted to be, but they can't stop arguing long enough to be great. I WILL GRANT YOU that we have a
share of blowhards (me) and we have some real elitist doofuses, but a lot of what you will read is hard-won

found the spot, man.

Hart to season a smoked bird since the skin is usually inedible. I always DO eat it, but I am not sure
I digest it. I think maybe you should get a Cajun Injector. That'll get that spice into the bird. I did a
infomercial for the guy that invented that thing before there was any such thing as a infomercial....
Did it LIVE, too, lol.
