Who needs to wait for the weekend?
1 whole chicken, 6 classic brats, 6 sun dried tomato and mozzarella brats, and 2 blocks of tofu in the smoker.

The tofu is ok.
I think the next time I do tofu I'm going to marinade first, press the liquid out for a longer period of time before smoking, then smoke for more than 5 hours. It was ok, and definitely smokey, but I was hoping it'd be a little more chewy. After a 5 hour smoke it was about the consistency of baked egg. I think I might take this batch, cut it up and fry it. That might give it the edge it needs to feel "complete" this time 'round.

Put on a brisket last night. Smoker held at 210 (I was shooting for 205, 210 is fine) all night. Not bad for starting the smoker when drunk.

Will pull at 18 hours, maybe later.

Got 2 racks of ribs in the smoker now. Also making a batch of bread and a gallon of pizza sauce for canning. And watching Man United v. Blackpool. SWMBO & daughter are out grocery shopping. Overall a good day!

Nice rack.

I'm helping cook this weekend for an annual Memorial day party. Last year it was a mix of boston butts and whole shoulders. It was enough meat to cover most of the rack in a big oil drum smoker. This year we should be doing a good bit more. We are going to be feeding our party goers plus wedding guests 2 weeks later. We are precooking, chopping, and freezing enough BBQ for the wedding reception.
