Talking It's getting to be that time of year in the Pacific NW

Well, today was my first day off with sun in months and I was caught off gaurd with no meat in the fridge to smoke. Unfortunately, not much I can to about today, but I picked up a 7.5 pound pork shoulder so next time (hopefully next week) I'll be ready to enjoy some pulled pork sandwiches. It's been two months since I used my smoker which is far too long!

My nieghbors are already asking when the ribs and brisket are coming.

A day of sun in Washington!!! And you didn't have any meat to smoke??? WTF???

I lived in Bremerton for a couple of years and I REALLY missed the sun while I was there. Of course here in a couple of months, I'm going to be wishing for cooler weather.


SOOOOOOO.... When can we expect ribs and brisket?

If you find some meat to smoke, I'll be right over.

I'm going out to wash mine here in a couple minutes.

The brisket will definitely be sooner rather than later, but ribs might be put off for the first T-shirt and shorts type day.

Sooooo, you've got me wanting to smoke some meat this weekend. Between working on the truck and trailer, not sure I will have the time, but I'm definitely going to try...

Well if you do try not to rub it in too much. It's raining again today and it's not supposed to stop for several days.

I had kind of the same thing happen to me the other day. it was close to 70* for the first time here in MN, i got the meat out of the freezer. let it unthaw, lit my grill and went in the house to let it warm up. walked outside with the meat to a hot grill that was out. checked it and the tank was empty, man was i bummed. i live 10 miles from town so i ended up cooking with the broiler, in the oven. just wasnt the same!

Depends on what I'm making, I'll do salmon, a chicken, or things that don't require much in cooking attention or adding of coal or wood. For the most part it's more of a satisfaction thing. Being able to stand there and smell the smoke and then the meat as it starts to cook on a nice day. It beats moving the smoker next to the back slider so I can monitor the temp gauge from inside and then run out to flip, spray, add coal, or wood then run back in. It takes a lot of the joy out of it for me.

I took great pride in the fact that we use to cook outside on our Traeger 3-4 nights a week, all year. Was kinda neat to be smoking some meat when it was snowing outside (it was underneath a covered area so no percipitation onto the Traeger).
