10-06-2013, 10:23 AM
Rack and rib tips seasoned up...going to cook the rib tips in a little coca cola

What did you fill the chute with? If using lump, make sure you don't have any real long chunks or they may cause a jam in the chute. Looks good.

10-06-2013, 10:30 AM
Used the lump and broke any big pieces so I wouldn't have any bridging issues. So far so good.

Looks like you and "Walt" are cookin a batch of goodies for the Hood:wink:

This morning is a beauty, eh? Many have tried to emulate Heisenberg's signature thin blue, but they are just imitators ;)

Threw some jalapeno n cheddar and garlic sausage on....and oh ya...that's a PBR in the coozie!

10-06-2013, 11:19 AM
Nice koozie! Hook 'em! \m/

Isn't there a pitmaster rule about only using less than 10% of a smokers capacity? I believe it carries a penalty... i need to check the rule book:cop:

10-06-2013, 12:31 PM
Ribs are on and for those that I offended their tender sensibilities with my PBR well here's proof I'm in touch with my feminine side

10-06-2013, 01:05 PM
Yes that's a Girly Beer..............:oops:

10-06-2013, 03:22 PM
Lookin' good.

10-06-2013, 03:33 PM
So what kind of fine establishment do you have to go to so you can find PBR in a bottle?

10-06-2013, 03:51 PM
There ain't nothing wrong with a good Blue Moon:-D

10-06-2013, 04:45 PM
You guys are making me sad reminding me there's no BB on tonight. :sad:
Looking good so far, minus the beverage choices. :-P

10-06-2013, 04:54 PM
Ribs off and wrapped

10-06-2013, 04:54 PM
Looks great man, glad you got it and starting on it already. Always makes me smile when one of the guys I have been talking to finally gets it and enjoys the quality and everything I described. Holler if you need anything bro.

I appreciate it....all I can say is DAMN! This thing is off the charts....the cooker with the Guru makes it so easy....after seasoning it, I ramped it back down to 250 and it held rock steady all day with no attention needed! Gives you plenty of time to enjoy the beverage of your choice!!!

Finished product

Rock on! My 28 has beef ribs, a skillet full of pepper stout beef and some hot links for good measure. Last time I drank PBR was a case chase with a 30 pack and a buddy.......that was an easy 10 years ago and I can't tell you what it tastes like!

10-06-2013, 05:21 PM
I'm telling you boys considering an insulated vertical.....GO ASSASSIN!!! I've cooked on offset stick burners and eggs and now have this bad boy. This cooker is dang near idiot proof...U don't have to worry about babysitting a fire or temp control and it gives you time to concentrate on your meat. Heck I had time to bake a cake today!!! Ok don't take points away from my man card for the cake!

10-06-2013, 06:13 PM
I know it's the cook and not the cooker....but I have to say this was my first cook on the Assassin and it was the best ribs I've ever done....1st thing my wife said was these are the best you've ever done! SCORE!!! :thumb:

10-06-2013, 06:19 PM
Looking grubbin!

Looks like it was a BIG success

Minus baking a cake :laugh:

10-06-2013, 06:56 PM
Those ribs look fantastic!

10-06-2013, 07:16 PM
Looks like a great way to break in your new cooker! Congrats on the Assassin!

10-06-2013, 08:08 PM
great looking food and a fantastic smoker!

10-06-2013, 08:12 PM
Those ribs look great! Grats on the new smoker. :cool:

10-06-2013, 08:35 PM
Curious gents, what is "pepper stout beef"? Sounds good, never heard of it before.

Nevermind, I googled it here:


Looks good, I'll have to try it.

10-06-2013, 09:00 PM
Nice looking ribs!!! Smoker looks awesome too.

10-06-2013, 09:42 PM
Yes that's a Girly Beer..............:oops:

Any beer clear enough to see through is girly beer. Real men drink a good stout!

But anyways, that is a fine looking smoker! Congrats!

10-06-2013, 10:02 PM
The Assassin is a great smoker that is easy to use and produces great results. You will really enjoy it. It does sometimes make you think that it is a waste not to fill it up with meat when doing a smoke but it nice to have all that capacity when you need it.

10-07-2013, 02:16 AM
The food and the smoker looks great. Awesome job. I have some chicken brining in the frig now, for the first official cook on the Assassin.
