Default First cook on the BABS! (PRON)

Today was a big day in my house today! It was a day that will live in infamy! I bought my Big A$$ Barrel Smoker (BABS) last week and have spent some time cleaning her up. I did a test burn just to understand how it works on Friday. Today I was able to throw some food on the grates.

ABTs
Mac and Cheese
Green Beans (on the stove)
1/4 chickens that were brined and then dipped in a Monroe County BBQ dip

Broken down chix:


Brine:


My new woodpile:


The BABS:


Chicken after brine with my rub on it:


Chicken on the BABS:


2 hours in I threw on the ABTs and the Mac and Cheese:


ABTs done!


Mac and Cheese:


Plated:

Not too shabby!! I like the BABS. You should post a thread giving us the grand tour.

And just for chits and grins, don't be smoking with those 2xs that are in your wood pile lol.

This is not a BABS, it's a propane tank offset smoker.

(Notice the offset fire box in the lower right corner behind the cooking chamber.)



I could be wrong...
