And I sure missed it for a while.

Those of us who live where it snows (and that would be me!) have waited through this nasty winter for the coming of spring.  So the first nice-ish Professor Bunky and I grabbed some beef, sausage and bacon, plugged in the Electrified El Cheapo Brinkmann and got to work.

It was windy so out came the towels.  It's never NOT windy when we want to Q.  Love the Jiffy-Pop look.

 

We had various home-made rubs, brown sugar and pepper on the bacon, and a hickory smoke for about two hours because we don't care for really heavy smoke.

 

Funny thing....can't see the smoke ring on the beef but you could sure taste the smoke.  That stuff on top is more bacon.


 

I made some cut-up twice-baked potatoes as a side.  The recipe called for sour cream mixed in before you baked the potato cubes but next time the sour cream goes on top AFTER baking.

The other side is various beans and some ground beef and tomato thrown in a slow cooker.

Oh.. Where are the sausage and bacon? Disappeared before plate assembly. Some into the beans, most into us.

 


As always, sorry for the random asterisks.  I blame ipad.

Sailor Kenshin, all the food looks good. Very Happy

What is this season you speak of? BBQ season is ALL the time. Wink

You and the Professor need some insulated coveralls and a shovel to get to the cooker, it'll all work fine. Cool

Sailor, You need a covered lit bbq hut, bbq hat & gloves and a thick ass smoker. Then you will enjoy the fun of 4 season smoking. Smile

Pssssst.. Great looking groceries.

The biggest problem we have is the wind - hence the jiffy pop look.

Anyway, everything tasted as good as it looks!
Very Happy

I've mentioned this before, but bears repeating: Since I'm too cheap to spring for a Maverick wireless therm, I position my cookers facing the back door(or a window) and keep an eye on smoker and meat temps with binoculars, minimizing the BRRR factor. Laughing Wink Though I do delay cooking when temps go sub-zero Shocked .

For those still hip deep in the white stuff, here's another helpful hint from the management!

Those with analog thermometers, if you slacken off the retaining nut, and set your favorite cooking temperature to 12 O clock high on the dial, then lock it down as tightly as you used to have it, you can tell at a glance it it is cooking cold, within your setting, or too high!

Most needles can be spotted from 20 - 25', without you having to get cold going out there to look at it. Wink

I have shoulder roast on as I type....and we are getting hammered with freezing rain.
We actually have a storm watch....It's almost the middle of April. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
