I have some old asbestos shingles at the beach house.
Asbestos don't burn dummy, you have to use asphalt for that true old school jersey wang

Yea so I smoked beef ribs the other day, they were so disgusting that even the dog didn't want them.

I fucked up, I mixed short ribs and long ribs, the short ribs were almost edible, but the long ribs were just charcoal, I want to get a big batch of long ribs and just grill them, I like chewing the meat off the bone even if it's a little tough. But, I have to go to the ghetto to get them

There you go...Paired with a 2012 Château Barde-Haut...I decided to crack open one of my $30+ reds :) and of course nothing tops Kraft mac and cheese with it...My kid eats like a king tonight.

Great smoke ring. Looks slightly dry, is it?. What was the internal temp? How long did it rest for before you cut it?

I rested it for 3 hours in the oven (off) in foil. It was dry on one part on one end of it that had very little fat but 90% of it was fine. It came out great with the rub I used. I usually use salt and pepper but decided to try a classic bbq rub and boy did it work great. I have a 50:50 ghost pepper and classic bbq sauce mix that is perfect with it...

The Bacon Explosion from start, middle, and finish. 2lbs of Italian Sausage with a pound of bacon, rub, and barbecue sauce rolled up in a one pound weave of bacon, smoked until done, and then glazed with more barbecue sauce. It’s my contribution to a Super Bowl party tomorrow.

Last weekend my old man told me about someone on one of those facebook yard sale site that had a smoker for free. It was almost an hour after the post went up, but i decided to venture out and see if i could find it. I am now the owner of a propane vertical smoker, with no legs. I suppose I can set it up on bricks or cinder blocks. I have to clean it yet. With wedding/graduation season here, I am now working 6 day weeks and just don't have the time.

Cinder blocks will be fine, I bought a giant corned beef from Costco I’m going to make pastrami probably for the 4th of July

I made pulled pork last month with my smoker using some Corky's BBQ Rub that was gifted to me by the Memphis restaurant. It goes up to 11 when you smoke it with that rub. So delicious.
