Hahaha, did you notice the sticker in the top corner? :beer:

Fired it up today & it didn't miss a beat. As soon as I found the sweet spot it sat at 135C(275F) for the whole time. Even when I checked on the butt & the temp would drop, all I would do is crack the side door & it would bounce back in a few minutes.

Here's the Qview as promised! :kewl:

The rubbed butt ready to go (& before you say it Czar, I know she already said it =)) )

Image

All pulled apart & ready to rock! Just look at that smoke ring :kewl:

Image

Made some coleslaw

Image

Damn the rolls were awesome too! :beer:

Nice, it's great when the "fruits of ones labours" makes up for all those hours spent on the project. Looks great tucker and good Q.

Hoping to do a trial run this weekend before slapping a coat of two of paint on... providing the weather holds that is.

I've never been a fan of lamb until a month or so ago when a friend of mine smoked some and sent over some tasters. Damn that was good! I'll have to add this to my list of smoked goodies.

Leftovers rock BTW! :beer:

Lamb is awesome, we've got plenty of it here in Aus.

I totally agree, leftovers always tastes better the next day, but there's normally none left for the next day, lol. =))

Yep, & wallabies (we have more wallabies than roos here in Tassie). I've got half a wallaby sitting in the freezer waiting to be smoked. :beer:

You can even get kangaroo steaks & sausages in the national supermarket chain. :kewl:

Something wrong about eating the animals on the coat of arms...
Unfortunately I get violently sick on kangaroo. Like the taste, but within half an hour I'm trying to chunder my ring.
Not sure what causes it. Perhaps too rich. Anyway I now know to keep far away from it. Skippy is safe around me... :-)

That's turned out great, Squiggle. I started reading your thread earlier in the year and have finally had time to come back to it. It looks amazing to me and I'm glad that using metric measurements was a success as that's my aim.

Could you tell me what metric thicknesses and diameters you used? We don't do the imperial measurements over here in the UK either.
