How awesome is my wife??
« on: August 25, 2016, 07:08:29 AM »
This is cut and copied to here from the BBQ Brethren site.... I wanted to let you guys know too.

Yesterday was our 14th wedding anniversary. I get home from work and she hands me a gift bag. I open the bag to find a new cookbook: "Secrets to Smoking on the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker and Other Smokers: An Independent Guide with Master Recipes from a BBQ Champion".
I think to myself 'this is awesome. But I dont have a WSM yet. do I tell her? i can just adapt the recipes to the kettle'
She's not the BBQ enthusiast, and is of the 'why do you need more than i grill crowd'. So I figured it was just an oversight and a charcoal grill is a charcoal grill.
As I'm flipping through the pages she says "why don't you go out in the garage".

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am now the proud owner of a 22" Weber Smoky Mountain !!!!!!
This thing is huge!
Can't wait to try it out now! Which I won't be able to do this weekend because we have to go to a pig roast!
First WSM cook thread to come.....

Lets just say I have acquired a few Kettles.  Big and small.   Vintage and New...  Some say I have a problem.  I find the Kettle, buy the Kettle, USE the Kettle...No problem...

Wow Eric that is awesome!  I think I would have assumed that my better half wouldn't have realized that the book was specific to something I didn't have either.  You've got one hell of a woman!!!

Thanks guys!  I did a seasoning burn the Sunday after the pig roast, then went on vacation.  This weekend will finally be the first cook on the WSM.  I will be doing a chuckie.  Probably will end up a pepper stout beef dish, but I'm open to suggestions.   There is a Throwdown going on over at the BBQ Brethren, I will be entering the chuckie into that.

So finally got to use my new WSM.   Picked up a 5 lb Chuckie, and seasoned it with SPOG.   Threw it on the smoker until an IT of 165.   Once it got to temp, I covered it in a pan with an onion, 3 Bell peppers (red and green), a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and a bottle of Michelob Lager.  I forgot to pick up a Guinness Stout, which I think would have been better, but the lager worked just fine.  Let it go for another 3 hrs.  This is just before shredding (because shredded is not very photogenic)   Sorry only got the one pic.  I was so excited to finally use the smoker I wasn't thinking straight!


It came out awesome!!  Thanks for looking!
