I think the first attempt on the new smoker was a success. Dry rubbed for 8 hours and then smoked for 4 over 50/50 hickory and cherry.
Well this opens up all sorts of opportunities… I stuck my old Garlock big dial thermometer in the dome for the heck of it. I might just tap and mount it on the lower rack to have an idea of how the heat varies between the upper and lower.
Thanks to my in-laws for a lovely Christmas gift.
