The New Smoker

Trailhound Smokers BBQ is now the proud owner of an East Texas Smokers RK250.  We were going to purchase a new one and have to make a run to Texas to pick it up.  Instead, we purchased Rod Livingstone's (R&R BBQ) smoker since he was purchasing the same model on a bigger trailer.  It worked out well for all parties.  Rod brought it down to Cedar City, Timm cooked on it the same day at the competiton and took 2nd in ribs.  It must be a lucky smoker, it was Trailhound's first walk. 
He's been cleaning it up inside and out, added a new grate to the firebox, and making a list of what he wants to do to it.  Modify...but be a guy thing.  He always makes pokes fun at the boys for wanting to modify everything...and he is doing the same thing.  Boys will be boys I guess.  Anyway, there will be welding done next weekend. 
Cooking 4 racks of baby back ribs and a pork butt today to get in some practice.  Trying some cherry wood we also got from Rod.  So much better than the chili I was going to fix for Halloween.
It's kinda funny...Timm went to check out HavaBBQ this year (February), really got the BBQ bug and was telling me about these Utah boys with a smoker with hatchets for handles and how cool he thought it was.  Now, we're friends with them (and many other BBQ folk) and as of this week, are the owners of that smoker.  Guess it was meant to be.  We are looking forward to many events and years of enjoyment with this smoker.
