The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Lonesome Highway Blues

So, where were we? Yes, it has really been weeks since I've been able to get something put up here. Sorry about that.

A few weeks back I was in Colorado for my best friends' wedding and travelled to Red Rocks to play air guitar on stage with my wife, and took a minute to sit and look at the views.
Since coming back, the wife and I cooked a private party in New Jersey for about 40 people and are looking forward quite anxiously to picking up our new Meadow Creek bbq pit trailer in about 2 weeks. It's about 16 feet of pure cooking joy including a 7 foot smoker and a 4 foot grill all welded to the trailer. Yippeee! In the meantime, it's leftovers for me, like this brisket dinner I had the other night.

Hey backyard, in your last post you talked about being sick, I thought you might have died or something. Good to see you back.

Tell me about the rig. I'm thinking about getting a Lang Smoker. I heard good things about that company. Any thoughts?

Thanks, s'kat! From the looks of your site, it seemss like you've been having lots of fun w/ that new fryer!

Gee, WTBBQ, with friends like you...When are you gonna cook some bbq and post some pics?

Terry, the cooker that we're getting is a reverse flow that is very much like the Lang 84 Deluxe w/ the Char-grill. The lang was what I was planning to get, but Meadow Creek is much closer to us, so I can pick it up and be seasoning on the same day. Our pit will have stainless steel pull out shelves and work surfaces, a live smoke option in the vertical and a few other mods-- like brakes on the trailer and an extinguisher mount.

Meadow Creek is a smaller outfit than Lang, which supposedly adds up to a little more attention to detail. We'll see-- I love the Langs that I've seen up close.

I'm glad you're back! So that new rig is mobile eh? Means it could easily be pulled 'cross country, no? I'll put some pylons out in the parking space in front of the house just in case you get a travelin' jones.

Oh yea, baby, we have ignition. We were out (again! AY!!) looking for a truck today-- in the drizzly rain. I think we eyeballed a winner.

Keep that stack of northwestern cherry wood ready....
