Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise.

  • The trick is knowing when your fire went out  how long it was out ...what the temp was when you checked them... and if not well past  140.... how long they were at that temp.

  • You may want to check to make sure that the "Ham" portion o of that shoulder doesn't get done a bit before the butt. That has been my experience more than once! As a side note everything I've gotten from SRF... been top notch!

  • SmokeyPitt said: That is a great tip Chubby.  It also looks more stable than the table nest.  Where did you get the rubber "booties"?  They sell them on the new/current nests. Apparently...many people don't put them on because it makes the…
