Cookin 4 butts on the drum today, about 38# total weight, weather is sunny and cool, 16* with a wind chill of 5!!!
Feeding the masses at my gun club membership meeting......they usually get pizza or pasta http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_eek.gif
Will keep updating throughout the day but you know the story....
Set drum temp to 245 and sit back, lookin to cruise about 10 hrs and may finish in oven if necessary.
Since i hardly lift the lid it may be a while (drum cooks are so uneventful)http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_smile_sleepy.gif

That's a good reason not to use my Brandy/ whisky/EVOO/turbinado spritz:msn-wink:

Lookin good Steve. I'm working on a Beans from scratch recipe for an upcoming comp. Now this is uneventful. They need to bake about 6 hrs before you get to find out whether they're any good or not.

Uneventful. But don'tcha love the results? My lone butt is at 176 after 6 hours cruising at 230-250 with hickory. I'm going to foil it and finish in the oven. Then reload the drum with ABT's, fattys, BBQ Beans, baloney, smoked shrooms. Decided to let the gasser rest today.
I LIKE my drum!

That's where the spritz always seems to go.

My kids'd be fighting over who got to spray the other kids next.

Looks like a great bunch'a butts there, Bubba! Can't wait for the final pics.

Steve, that's good lookin' stuff!!!

Your pictures put a "want" on me. I haven't had a chance to get out to the pit in several weeks and I miss it.
