It's going to be mid 60's on Sat and Sunday and some form of animal (s) are going to be smoked. A buddy of mine wants me to smoke some quail and pheasant he just got.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

Looks awesome dude! :needfood:

I totally know the feeling on both waking up & planing it the day before & sometimes I don't decide to do it till the afternoon & then I'm up till 3am(or later, just ask Frank, lol) smoking ribs or butt for the next morning. :kewl:

Wild game is tricky to cook right on my smoker. Since it's a real lean meat like venison or bear has to be watched real close or it goes to hell quick. I found wrapping the meat in bacon helps keep the meat from drying out. And cmon who doesn't like bacon.

I have had grilled quail before at my bro inlaw's place but I have never had smoked quail. It should be mighty tasty. Let us know it turns out Pete.

Sounds interesting. You might need to "experiment" with a couple to see when you go past the "too much" line and pull back for the rest.

Yesterday was a productive day for me and my smoker.


A nine and a half pound pork butt rubbed and ready to go in the smoker. Image

Now for the sides.

BBQ Beans

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

If you or anyone you cook for like asparagus, these are awesome.

Image
Image

I wrap them this way so I can avoid using toothpics. (I hate biting into those things)

Image
Image
Image
Image

I just tuck the end up under itself and no need for those pesky toothpics.

Image

Ready for the smoker. An hour and 45 minutes at 250 and they are done.

Image

Here is the butt and beans about 2 hours into the cook at 225 degrees.

Finished products:

Bigbook, brisket chili sounds awesome. I'll have to make some next time I do a brisket.

Stewart, those thighs and ribs are making me hungry. Good job.

RC, is that a bowl of gumbo that those ABTs are resting on? Sure looks tasty.

Another warm day here so I picked up 40 lbs of pork shoulder @ 1.29/lb from Rest Depot. Also got 3 lbs of jalapenos for some ABTs. Made some broccoli slaw too.
