My smoker was built by 2 guys in Kentucky that go by the name Sling N Steel.. they custom build these things out in their pole barn.. I've had it almost 2 years now and it's been great.. bought it mostly for fun, sold my motorcycle and figured this was a less dangerous way to spend my time.. https://www.slingnsteelcustomsmokers.com Mine is the "ultimate gameday" model. The ultimate being that it has a basket on the side to haul all of my shit. They are a little rough around edges, the welds are pretty obvious and the cuts in the steel aren't all that straight, but they hold heat well and get the job done and are much more affordable than some of the other guys. I actually noticed the guys at Ray Ray's in Westerville have my EXACT same smoker.. I had mine first.. ;) Some day I would love a big ole Jambo.. or custom build something a bit bigger.. would probably need to start making money to justify that though.. lol. I'm pretty happy with this.. it's the life of every party!

That looks great! I like the deep pink smoke ring.. Never tried hot and fast.. my electric goes to 275 and my stick burner likes to hang out around 250 so thats usually where I leave it.. I got it up to 325 once while experimenting with some wings, but it takes a butt load of wood and even more babysitting..

Catering dinner for Monday night.  The event ended up getting cancelled too, so all of that work for nothing.  We vacuum sealed the meat and threw it in the freezer, so we'll see how it turns out reheated.  Shredded the pork and left the briskets whole.

I've been taking my butts into the stall on the stick burner then putting them in a foil pan with no covering and moving to the electric (I have two 40" masterbuilts).  You still get a really nice bark on the top 80% and you end up with another 1/2 cup to 1 cup of juices you can save off.  I usually end up mixing some of it back in with the shredded pork.  I take the briskets to the stall and wrap in pink butcher paper then I'll move those too, depending on what time of day it is.  I'm usually starting these the night before and trying to get some sleep and that stick burner needs a log or two every 45 min depending on the temp.  For dinner, I shoot for ~1pm finish time and I'll hold them for another 4-6 hours.  Hasn't failed me yet!

I thought for sure this would be here already... He makes some sound points. Sounds ridiculous on the surface but after reading it I'm thinking "good for them".. "UCF athletic director Danny White said Wednesday that the program has decided to claim a national championship and will place a championship banner inside Spectrum Stadium to recognize its undefeated 2017 season." I particularly liked this bit.. "UCF also isn't the first school to dispute a national championship. Alabama, for instance, recognizes 1973 as a championship year. The coaches' poll did name the Crimson Tide No. 1 that year, but voting took place before they lost to Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. The AP voted the Fighting Irish No. 1 and Alabama fourth after the season." http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21951014/ucf-knights-raise-national-championship-banner

In Miami it just means more.  They've always been a classy bunch.

My favorite was Kentucky KENTUCKY chanting S-E-C when NW failed on that 4th down... The epitome of conference coattail riding..

Herbie with arguably the worst QB performance in the last 50 years... Lol Edit: between the bottom 3.. would love to see number of starts vs number of years...
