Default My LitTLe PumPkiN's a SmOKeR...


...not that one...


...this one (on the right)!!


After testing the fit (almost fit the smokey joe like it was GrOwN for it), we cut out the bottom.


Drilled our vent holes.


Prepped our fire. Used a little foil to get a better seal between pumpkin and smokey joe.


Placed the puMpKin on the smokey Joe and waited for the ThiN BlUe...


PuFfing AlOnG..


Figured we better install a ThErMO..


After about 90 minutes...were a little DiStRActEd carving our other pumpkins.


Here's what the inside looked like when finished...BlAcK side closest to FIRe!

Katie's fatty was pretty tasty!! JD Maple with some Pauk Kirk Millenium rub (two of her favorite things in the world)!! Piece of random wood from our grab bag...I'm guess had to be oak or cherry (cuz those are the boxes that got spilled, sucked on, tossed about by Katie's little brother).

This was a pretty fun way to smoke, for sure. Got inspired when I saw the pumpkin sitting next to the Smokey Joe (like in second pic). This pumpkin was almost a perfect fit...next time I'm gonna measure at the pumpkin patch (get one that fits the joe exactly)!!

HaPpY HaLLoWEen BrEThREn!!

Very clever!

Tell Katie that I highly approve of her decision to cook a naked fatty! (You can change the words to be more kid-friendly )

Thanks! She likes to keep 'em simple, for sure...just the JD Maple (her fave) and whatever rub she's feeling at the moment...
