    Congratulations on your results, Candy Sue!!

    But I am so sorry i didn't see this thread sooner. I am not that far away and could have gotten supplies for you.

    FWIW, you were exactly right to stick with what you are familiar with.

    Hope you are happy with the result!

    I guess with a name like "Ironman" a few bumps along the road are expected. Congrats on the rib call!

    This was BRUTAL!!! The wind blowing, cold temperatures, rain, lost the canopy, the WSM was a bit out of kilter, demanding pretty constant attention. It was a success -- got a call in ribs 10th place and came in (barely) in the top half. I was dangerous driving back to Baltimore to the hotel. Collapsed after a long, hot shower sleeping for a solid 9 hours. Glad to be home!

    Candy Sue, good luck and hope you do well. I am glad to hear I am not the only one that forgets to take pictures.

    Candy Sue, I think you are spot on taking what you are familiar with. That goes for everything you will need.

    Good Luck, and have a great time. I look forward to your post and pics after it is over.

    Where in PA is this CandySueQ and when this weekend? Depending on the answers, I might take a drive (I'm 30 miles west of Philly).

    Good luck CandySueQ ! I have heard of the Iron Man. It's something I would like to try because I don't go with anything electronic (okay other than thermomoters)LOL. I really like the old style way of doing things. And before anyone piles on, I think pellet smokers and Guru's and Stokers are great for those that like them. I am just hard headed and like tending my fire. Please keep us posted and hopeuflly take lost of photos. Again, best of luck!

    Call first to see if they have stock! My local restaurant supply carries 10# bag for $8. Got it packed (clothes too)!

    I think you ought to take it on as carry-on, plenty of conversation there! The Ozark Oak guys are near here, but I don't see a site for them, wonder if I could go check the place out and pick up some fresh stuff.

    Nope - Every chef brings his own knives to work.

    Going to need 3-4 garbage bags. I'll bag the charcoal up in garbage bags. Then I can cross garbage bags off the buy list! Whole idea is to limit everything to 4 bags (counting purse), meat and purse go on the plane, check the charcoal and cooler

    not at all... go with what you know. I would pack it in a separate bag than with your clothes tho... ;0)

    My iphone. Biggest problem is remembering to take photos! But I'm going to try to do better.

    Do you think I'm being silly about the charcoal?

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
