I just went for the Tums. I think I will be fine.
The smoker did its job. We had chicken, Cornish hens, pork tenderloin and ribs. The assortment of meat and sizes called for different start times but experience with my smoker (a Weber bullet) allowed them to finish at the same time. All of the meats were good but the tenderloin probably was the favorite of most. I had some hot links I forgot to cook. But I’m the only one who knew it so it was not missed.
There was a time when I smoked a turkey and it’s generally well liked. But it’s not nearly as good as this selection of meats off the smoker.
It helps to have moderate air temp to allow the smoker to stay at a consistent 225, what I like. And we had a mild morning in Norfork. The apple wood chunks provided a good, mild smoke for the meats.
There was pecan pie, peach pie, banana pudding and cookies.
The sides: BBQ rice (Arkansas County style), green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, dressing (with gravy), homemade rolls, cranberry sauce and the most gorgeous salad ever. There may have been some other sides that I did not notice!
