Default First Smoke on the UBS!!!

Better late than never, right?

My first run on the UBS was great! So easy to control the temperature (after the initial false-high when firing the thing up.)

Shoulder, baby backs, brisket, two chickens and some almonds & pecans.

Shoulder was great! I made some N. Carolina-style sauce and ate sandwiches all week!

The baby backs were smoky and delicious! Too much rub, though, and they were falling apart after 2 - 2, so they didn't get the final 1.

The chickens were great, but I could see a rotisserie doing a superior job.

The brisket was smoky and delicious, but dry. It was the flat only, and sadly had most fat removed. I used no pan, no injection. I'm buying another brisket today! I plan on using a shallow pan and getting a complete brisket with full complement of fat.

Here's the pron:
