My cooking area isn’t covered and I have a car & two motorcycles taking up all the space in my garage, so I have to keep covers on most of my smokers and grills for the three or so times it rains here every “winter”. Plus I’m going to have to get up before 9AM Saturday to smoke a rib roast and it will be over 80* here. Boo hoo.

Last weekend almost brought the world to an end. While getting ready to provide for my family's food needs for the LSU-Bama game, the unimaginable happened.

I turned on the valve of the 20lb. propane bottle, grabbed the self-ignition button on the 3000 degree weed burner, and nothing. Nothing. Igniter had failed. What was I to do now, as my timing was now compromised. How was I to get splits burning?

With meats prepped, and guests arriving later, my back was against the wall. I had earlier confirmed that the television signals for the game were properly being bounced off satellites, received by my 4K tv, and that the audio signal was proper on the 7.2 surround. But a cold smoker was now my nemesis.

Finally, while dispensing ice from the ice maker, it dawned on me that to resolve this catastrophe, I was going to have to go to an old school solution.

So I used an electric match, to light the weed burner, to light the smoker, to cook the meat.
Whew, problem solved. Old school "electric match" saved the day.

Geaux Tigers.

Edit: Using my laptop, I researched a replacement ignitor, ordered it online, paid with a card, and got an email confirming delivery will be Tuesday. What has the world come to? Crap, no 2nd day delivery? Unacceptable.

AT&T U-verse got into a p1ssing contest with the NFL and I have been without the Redzone channel all season because I have been too busy/lazy to switch to Xfinity. Redzone and smoking/grilling on the patio has been a Sunday staple for years. Now I have to watch network programming like poor people

It was about -33F wind chills this morning when i was shovelling out the shorts. Had to finish the butt in the oven as I was about to run out of pellets due to higher then normal pellet consumption. Bad inventory management on my part.
