Tried to take a nap for an hour while the IT was at 195. Must have shut the alarm off and went back to sleep for an extra hour. When I woke up IT was back to 190, grate temp 180. So I poked some pecan branches through the vent and after a couple more hours it was up to 201. Got them in the cooler now. Ive heard I can hold them for 5-7 hours. Which will allow me to pull them 30-45 minutes before the party and get them back in the cooler to transport.

Those plants looking good! You having any issues with airflow as they canopy out? When mine start to get crowded before they go out to harden off, I always have issues with not getting enough water out of the leaves, the undersides get bubbled up trying to exhaust water but it has nowhere to go
Also, watering is a bitch when they get like that, I feel for ya :)

I could use more fans, but they seem to do alright. Its getting hard to water the plants in the middle of the trays. I can't even imagine trying to water your plants, lol. It takes me probably close to 2 hours to water everything and put it back on the shelves.

two picnic shoulders and a shoulder butt. At least that's what they were labeled as. 1.39 a pound.

Put them on a 2, its midnight now. I wrapped them about a half hour ago. They need to hurry up, I'm tired lol.







Hopefully they turn out good cause I have a bunch of people to feed it to tomorrow.

Thanks for the feedback and kind words guys.

I'm addicted!

You ever cold smoked anything Mike? I'm in the process of building a cold smoker now. I need better tools, I make it really hard on myself using screws and scissors and a couple types of players to fabricate this external smoke box. Turned out alright though really.

I got a 12" a-maze-n brand oval tube smoker. You put pellets in it and light one end with a torch and it is supposed to burn for 4 hours. I have it in these popcorn tins, set up on the piece off the top of a Briggs and Stratton cut in half and bent to shape. They are bolted through the popcorn tin, and act as legs for the contraption.

Some people use a mailbox, but I'm trying to spend the least amount possible on this. So far all I spent was 20 for the tube thingamajig.

Anyway, I will pipe the smoke through a flexible metal dryer duct, into a masterbuilt cabinet that a friend had gotten in a storage unit auction. Its only the cabinet. Doesn't have racks, or a handle or anything. It did have the heating element but no plug, so I just took it out. Might end up putting some type of element with a controller if I decide to do more than cold smoking with it.

Sorry for the long winded post.

Sorry forgot to post pics.

And yes it is the weber coal baskets. I was trying to keep the coal off of the side of the grill. I want to make a bigger basket.




Made steaks tonight. Used the probe and cooked to 150. They were medium well though. Need to take them off at 140 next time and see what that's like.

Daughter wanted steak, corn, peas, potatoes and dinner rolls for her 6th birthday dinner.

#1621128 Cheap 6000k led lights

Posted by Walchit on 19 March 2019 - 04:00 PM

They look good from here. I'm covering 15 sq ft with about 3 times that much led. You should be able to do 4-5 sq ft for sure.

The internet really helps decrease the trial and error part of anything. As long as you get your info from multiple sources, you can figure out what advise to follow.

Wrapped it up, Added more coals and got the grill back up to temp. It had dropped to 190 while I was at Wal-Mart.
