      Sadly you are correct, sir. I knew I should have installed a smoke scrubber so the darn neighbors wouldn't catch on.

    Got the two Smokey Mountain's waiting on the chimneys.

    Planning on starting them good and low (225) so I time it out to pan and wrap around 4am. I need the juices for the finishing sauce.

        Reminds me of what I have inscribed inside my wedding band: Ecclesiastes 4
        9 Two are better than one,
        because they have a good return for their labor:
        10 If either of them falls down,
        one can help the other up.

        Can those stock Weber thermos be calibrated? I don't recollect...

        I don't think so. I could be wrong. My other WSM dial has been pegged at "Weber" since my 3rd cook. I don't even consider them marginally useful

        So we're plugging away. Butts are wrapped and collecting their juicy goodness. Ribs went on about 7am, and the chicken just went on. The delicate salmon goes on last.

          Is there something going on the 22-inch kettle, or is it just a good spot for the chimney?

          Looks like you're tearing this cook up. Great job so far.
          Just love the spatchcocked chicken.
          I'm gonna try a fried-a-que spatchcocked chicken in a couple of weeks. Smoke for about an hour then deep fry till crispy and finish with a good slathering of bbq sauce.

            I think that's what I'm going to have to do next time. Although it has worked out well with two pits, keeping the different meats timed right can be a pain

          Well, I am whooped. Time for a beer and a chair!

          All the food has been delivered to very eager and hungry neighbors. Some take-away notes for my next big invite cook:

          - I'm going to take Karon's advice and be meet-specific. Will make things easier.
          - Because I love using a finishing sauce on my pork, definitely need to pan and wrap earlier. Not quite as much jus as I'd like to work with.
          - Having two Smoky's works great when cooking four different meats. The aluminum pans need a little 'modifying' to fit everything, but it was very doable. Having said that....
          - I still want a two chamber Deep South Smoker.

          Ok, off to mow the yard. As a retired Navy Captain I worked with used to say, "Work, work, work. Curse of the drinking man."

          That was Amazing! Great job. I love smoking meats, but I've had a hard time tracking more than two types, even with my Fireboard.

            Thanks. After a few competitions, keeping track got easier for me. Long cook to fastest, then just keep the rotation straight.

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        slow n sear
        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

        the good one grill
        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.
