      I dont mind saying that this kind of smoking is a challenge at every level. So much to learn. So much to do.

          Not everyone can cook with charcoal, people freak out when I tell them I only use charcoal to cook my PBC foods. DWCowles

        Cherry first two stacked rows. Ash and oak mixed in the back.


        Woodman Dan helping me fill the truck! He was so happy that the cherry was going to a smoker he loaded the rest of the truck up with ash and oak.

        He's working on my supply of apple and cherry for next year. No way we can get pecan up here but what the heck I'm good with fruit wood.


        Dan just looks like a wood man dont he! Very cool dude!

          Jon Solberg my first experience with cherry wood was back in '83. I was on summer break from college and I went to Yakima, WA to work on my uncle's apple orchard for the summer (a summer job that lasted 3 years, but that's another sorted tale). One day he decided since he had some extra muscle handy we should cut up a cherry log that had been sitting behind the garage for the past 5 years. When we put the chainsaw to it you should have seen the sparks fly! It was quite a show! We were lucky we didn't catch the grass on fire. Needless to say, we had to drag it to the burn pile instead of having cut and split for firewood. The first lesson I learned when dealing with fruit wood, make sure you cut and split it before curing. It just makes life easier.

          I'm north bro. Cant do it. Doing an SnS butt tomorrow. Headed south Monday to get this stacked. I'll be firing up the pig next weekend at best.

          I have to do some re arranging on my back porch so I can make it all work.

                you betcha... the absolute best size to cook small meals for 1 or 2 people is a 10" deep lodge (5 quart), hard to find though... a regular 10 is good too... a 12 inch for big meals and more people, a 14 inch if you are cooking a large meal!

              I couldn't fit anymore of the split stuff in the back of the truck. I filled up an 8ft trailer with the pieces we could only move with a dolly. Will split the old fashion way soon. I had to split one just to get it off the trailer.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                  Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                  Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

                  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.
