re: Smoker is rolling - JoseVargasTX
Been busy--still eating these leftovers. This is today's lunch--ribs and roast. Potatoes and green beans. Just missing the home grown tomatoes. And yep--that's a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Fantastic dog. Stubborn but a great part of our family. [img]https://s1.postimg.org/7pby656rj/IMG_3518.jpg[/im...

Been out of town the last 10 days. Hot as hell in Dallas today. Smoker is rolling, yardwork done. Trying boneless beef ribs and a chuck roast. Probably be tough but we'll see. [img]https://s1.postimg.org/ty1l3vssf/D76_EE7_AE-_AAF3-4_A59-_B543-0_AA66_EAB80_F2.jpg[/img]...
