cooker.jpg
well we warmed up to 30 today so for the first cook we did chicken, ribs and brats, I put them all on at 11am had the brats for lunch they were great,
I pulled the chicken early but it was still on too long it was good just a little dry, but the ribs were great and are all gone, overall temp control went well only lost it once,
I have a prograde temp sensor that is Wi-Fi and the lavalock one I also used a Fluke with a thermos sensor, is really amazing the different temp reading I was getting from one side to side and how the lavaloc on the door seems to react so slow, overall cook went well

I did not think toggle clamps would work plus I don't like the look, so I built T-handle clamps now it looks like a pressure cooker, and I couldn't resist doing some ribs and again they were great,

now i have to stop using the smoker so i can get it finished, I sanded all the leftover paint getting ready for paint, trailer will be standard paint and the smoker will be heat paint,

I would like to say thanks for all the help,

so I would say we have success, we are having game night this weekend (a group on my wife's friends from the bus she rides with each day)I do the cooking so I asked her what should I make? she replies make ribs on the smoker (she has never liked my ribs from the oven/Webber I have always made her chicken) but Hun its -20 so It's too cold I can't do ribs on the smoker, she was disappointed so all the time spent on the smoker was not a waste,

That's a huge plus when the wife asks for you to cook her something on your smoker. :beer:

well I did my first big smoke this week, starts wit 12 racks for 3 hours then they went into 3 steamer pans and back on the smoker with 60 chicken legs for two hours, chicken went into pans and the ribs went back on the rack for an hour, about 30 from the office had a feast so very happy with the performance of the stubby, I burned about 1 recycle tub of splits and a lintel Kingsford, I was so excited I forgot to eat breakfast and I did not take any pictures

thanks
john

Sounds like a good cook. Hate u missed the pics. How do your ribs come out after putting them in a pan? Do you wrap the pan?

yes each pan had 4 racks with apple juice and sealed with foil, I really think the pans work just as well as foil takes less room and less foil but I do have pans to wash, plus I was able to able to do the chicken hotter temp and the ribs in pans can handle more heat,
the ribs were great tender and almost ready to fall off the bone but yet still firm so I could still cut them up,

That’s good news about the ribs in pans. I had that idea a while ago but never tried it. Wrapping each slab can get messy and takes too much time especially when u are cooking more than 2 or 3. Being able to wrap 4 slabs in one pan is awesome.
