First cook on my SSP. Enjoyed having the thermometer giving me a general idea on temps.

And the meal was beef and pork ribs, smoked with royal oak lump and mesquite chips.

Tested my thermometer to read approx 25 low.

The double coal baskets were to heat and scrape the old grates.

5 hour smoke then quick high heat for the added sauce.

Beans in the basement of course, ended up with a rich smoke flavor.

Your Red SSP is just beautiful.  If you did the clean up, then you're the Master Blaster.   The ribs looked pretty damn tasty.

Went dark side with a chargrill (buddy's neighbor's grill) cook the other day.

10lbs of bone-in pork shoulder

Wife made it (carnitas tacos)    I did the 6 hour cook to make the pork pullable.

Very yummy but had trouble getting a stable temp due to the offset fire box and high winds.

I don't have finished pictures,  way too delicious to stop and take pics.

Pics are from 5 hours in.

Cook process:
Cut and seared in cast iron pan with flavoring
325 covered cook (4hrs) in recipe baste
2hr uncovered,  turn after first hour.

Went to the Eastern Meet for the club and had some fun,  Learned a few pointers to enhance my ribs as well. 

Nice welcome sign:


My Thumbscrew getting to work


Enjoying the view of the dubber "Museum"


Ribs are coming a long


Ribs finished


Marty carving my ribs. They took so long I don't think anyone wanted to wait for me to figure out how to cut them up


Oops, what did I pick up on the way to the meet?

Today I picked up a 22.5" mid section to have a franken smoker.  Going to need more parts but we will see



But, look what I found today.....


Came few a few extras, but is missing the water pan; going to have to find one of those


Some extras; I believe its the condiment rack, but I am not sure.  I also now have an older tool hanger.
Whoohoo, my thumbscrew is getting decked out. 


Umm, I'm going to need more space soon.  I'll have to break-in the copper and the smoker soon.  Updates and cooks to come soon I hope.

Planned cook for Tuesday.  Having a moral day with my section at work. Here is the plan.

Pulled pork sandwiches, ribs, steaks,  baby potatoes,  broccoli, corn on the cob

18wsm:
Bone in pork shoulder seasoned and seared with copper sj then smoked

3 racks of ribs, thinking bbq style

Copper 22

Everything else,  hoping to get to use my Craycort griddle grates for something.   


I am planning to start around 7am. I have read to allot at least 30 min/lb with the shoulder or more.  I'll likely start the ribs 1-2 hrs later. 

Since my wsm is missing the water pan I will be going with the 14" clay terracotta pan I have read about.

We will see how well I can put together an entire cookout meal. Let me know if anything in this plan sounds incorrect.

I'm actively planning to thin the heard......
Then this happened, 78' MBH Weathered Warrior


The handle is in good condition albeit a little loose.  I have give it a coat of spar.


This kettle also has an added thermometer in the lid.  The install is rough with a jagged bent in hole..... just going to have to embrace the look.


I now have a pair of Weathered Warriors. 


Inside cleaned up pretty well, One note of interest is a few small spots of yellow porcelain inside the kettle and a bit outside, also noticed some lime green as well. I assume this kettle was near some colored kettles before firing. 


Cleaned the glass; now i need to check it's accuracy.


Both Rivets are holding well but there is a little wiggle to the handle, what a nice looking pair.


Here is the large collection minus the charcoal SSP.  I really do need to thin my herd. 


I luckily had a spare ash pan and holders sitting around.... woohoo!

just need one more Weber....

Thanks for the kind words, tomorrow I start my largest cookout using 3 grills and a smoker to eat Wed.

Also fixed the thumbscrew's top vent. It's not original looking but it works for now.  Eventually I'll grab a better/more original looking screw.
