Default screw the wind and cold... first smoke of the year

barely above freezing in Iowa, feels colder, and gusty winds aren't gonna stop me... been itching to smoke some ribs all winter and i got a small batch of BB's for the wife, me and a couple of good friends who don't have the kids for the weekend. gonna supplement with some wings, homemade BBQ sauce on both, kick back with some Leine's and/or Woodford and enjoy the afternoon.

still using a POS CharBroil grill as a "smoker", but i'm going to invest in a WSM (hopefully this month so it's ready for my draft party on 4/25!!).

Fareway down the street had BB's on sale, unfortunately not whole racks but oh well. pulled the membrane, thin coating of ACV, rubbed with a simple rub (salt, pepper, garlic, celery)...


loaded the POS (apple wood and some soaked pecan shells)...


BB's are on and smokin' (smoke doesn't look blue, but it is... wind gusting pretty good)...


right now it's running a little hotter than i'd like, but i'd rather have that than the other way around on a cold day.

everyone is one their way so i might not be able to get as much pron as i'd like, but will try to post more if i can as it comes along!!

As I sit here on the front porch clutching my tablet in my shorts and a T shirt sipping a sweet tea with a plash of Bourbon reading this with the mercury bumping 82 I got a chill up my spine. Hang in there amigo summer is coming. I like your use of pecan hulls I save them too for grilling chicken & chops.

Good luck with your smoke! Don't let those in lesser climates rankle you.

BTW, My first cook of the year was grilling on Jan 1 (high of 22°F) and my first smoke was on the 15th (29°F Woo!) but I'm smoking on a WSM which probably helps.

Pix if you have time!

Temperature is all relative. "Just above freezing" is a heat wave for me. I grill/smoke more in the winter than the summer (mostly out of boredom). Put on the appropriate clothes and it no problem grilling in below zero temps. Grill on brother!

Quick shifts and close to the cooker. Don't forget it tastes better the more you want it!

"Winter" just means there's no need to buy ice.

Cook on, fellow frosty farkers!
