It will take less than 5 minutes to set up and will work great.

Probably too late now though because for cold smoking you need to use a curing salt which you probably wont have in the brine for a hot smoke.
it is not. possibly this weekend, though. i may just have to give it a try then. any ideas on what to try and cold smoke as a first attempt?

Cheese and nuts are popular because they don't involve and prep or curing or anything.

I'm spit roasting a 22lb pork leg this Friday for our New Years feast. Will take pics and report back!

(I know it's not smoking, but... it seemed relevant).

agreed, the soldering iron and tin can works great for cheese.

A little late to the thread and sorry no pics but I smoked a 15lb turkey on my ugly drum on Christmas day. My poor kids had to wait to open gifts while I got the turkey going. Total smoke was about 8 hours and I used some apple wood from the back yard.

I made the brine and rub from thesmokerking.com. It turned out great! Some of the best turkey I have had even though it was in my moms freezer for several years.

I wish. My smoker is out of commission. I am hoping to have it rebuilt along with a 2nd one for super bowl though.

I've got 15 pounds of shoulder on the smoker today for an open house/christen the keezer get together tomorrow.

Oatmeal Stout, Old Ale, Bass clone, Apfelwein and pop for the kids.

I might report back, but it will probably be in DRMM at that point.

Enjoy!
