Your Time Is Gonna Come

Here she is folks! Large Marge has landed. Sorry, I was in such a tizzy I didn't yet get any pictures of her without the wrapping, but here's the wife welcoming her to the family at the Meadow Creek factory in New Holland, PA and the first beef off the grill-- cooked without thermometers and in the dark, and the first rack of baby back ribs from the smoker that were sampled. The ribs were cooked hot and fast on the top shelf and were moist, sweet and delicious. No sauce (except the alcohol kind) was consumed in the making of these pictures.

Though it seemed leaky at first, once preheated, the smoker held temp rock steady at 250 front to back, and was very fuel efficient.

That's one heck of a smoker... But the woman in the picture in no way could be called "large" even it it does rhyme with her name! Shame on you!

Great looking eats!

Hey Backyard, that looks awsome for a first cook. I have some pics posted of my Labor Day cook. I know it will take time to get use to the cooker but that looks like a good start.

My little water smoker is looking
even more pathetic.
If you folks are ever heading West, we have driveway space near the I-80 & I-29 junction for you to park that rig for a while!

Hey there, Terry_Jim-- it's the cook, not the cooker. I'm sure you can turn out darn good 'que w/ the water smoker. That's how I started.

If we're in your neighborhood, we'll let ya!
