    If you haven't done prime before every one I've done has been finished earlier than anticipated.
    Think it might be the fat/marbling to muscle ratio. I'm no expert by any means but I've done quite a few.
  • Re: Sandblasting A Smoker Question

    Sorry for such an off the wall post. I know, asking about sandblasting a steel smoker on a ceramic grill site isn't the best approach. I just singed up over on the BBQ Brethren forum but not sure when I'll get accepted. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 60's here in Minnesota and hoping to get started restoring the smoker I picked up a few months ago. Here's a little more information:

    It's The Good One Smoker - Open Range

    I had intentions of taking the angle grinder to it and removing as much paint and rust off it as possible. The more I look at the smoker the less chance I see myself using the angle grinder with a wire brush. I'm thinking I'll need to sandblast it. Which brings me to a couple questions. If I do decide to sandblast, do I have to sandblast the inside? It would be nice to sandblast inside/outside of the smoker but the fire grate is welded to a couple cross bars in the firebox. It would be almost impossible to sandblast with the grate in place and not looking to cut out and re-weld back into place.

    Here's a picture of the firebox. The grate is welded to the cross bar.

    Here's a picture of the cooking chamber. It's seems to be in good shape.

    Can I just sandblast and paint the outside and not worry about anything internally? I'd clean up and season the grates but do I need to worry about the rust/paint inside the smoker?

    Thanks for any help!

    Looks to be close to 12 gauge steel. You should be able to sandblast or even shot blast it.
  • Re: How long to cook pork butts?


    I do them at 250* and get a good night's sleep. Really about when you put them on. That said, I haven't done a high temp one for comparison but several folks that I respect are doing them that way now.

  • Re: What's that?

    Did you grill the tomato/bocconcini? Looks a little melty
