Default I'm Actually Cooking Something! **** Live From Overland Fark, KS

Things have been so crazy for the last month and a half that I forgot I had some smokers outside!

It's pretty cold this morning, it might even be the coldest of the year, so I had to stay true to my tradition of smoking something on the coldest day.



The weather man said it was 5 degrees outside, but I don't think he was using a RED Thermapen!

Due to technical difficulties from the cold, my camera could not take pics of my smoker prep this morning so I will give a quick recap.

First off, the middle and bottom sections of my WSM's were frozen together. It's rained recently and some jackass left my WSM's uncovered. Once I pried them apart by thwacking the side of the ring sealing them together and placing one foot on a leg of the unit and lifting, I then tried to take the unit apart for a quick cleaning and assembly. Unfortunately enough water gathered in the bottom bowl that it was just up to grate level and frozen solid into one big mass of bowl, ice, ash, grate and a few unspent coals protruding out of the top. Undeterred, I turned the bowl upside down and grabbed a pitcher of hot water, and poured a stream of hot water on top of the inverted bowl until the icy mass dislodged from the bowl, taking all the ice, ash, charcoal and grate with it. Voila! Clean bowl! Next I refilled the pitcher with more hot water and poured it slowly around the top of the now dislodged ice mass to free the grate. Once it popped off I poured the remaining water over the coals frozen to the top of the grate to dislodge them. Voila! Clean grate! I have no idea what I am going to do with the ashy, coal-ridden ice semi-sphere though. I'm sure I'll think of something.

I lit that farker up with some cherry chunks added for flavor. When it got to temp I tossed on a packer just because I had an extra one lying around.

Now, let's get down to business. Here are the chuckies I'm cooking up.



I'm seasoning them with some Foil Hat and some Pepper.



Now let's go put them on the smoker.



More to come today here on "Live From Overland Fark" after these messages!

I figured it out...

He's getting close to 22,000 "quality" posts so he had to move to Q-talk for a while.

...And, we're back!

The WSM is chugging along at 275*, let's check on those chuckies now that we hit the 90 minute mark.



IT is 132*, so not quite there yet.

Now that the sun is out, here is my ice thingy.



Still not sure what I'm going to do with it though.

We'll be back later when the chuckies are ready for some special treatment here on "Live From Overland Fark"!

I think you should put your wife's pyrex in the cooker again.

Based on what I have seen in previous posts, I will go out on a limb and say that you are just going to leave it wherever it wound up.

That reminds me...

I should move that WSM cover. Maybe even use it to cover the WSM to keep rain and ice out.
