Just had my 30 day review at work, I passed with flying colors, got signed off on my job, and can apply for the next step up. Things are good. I miss spending more time here, but 12hrs doesn't leave me a lot of time on work days. Luckily, I have seven days off now and am heading to "my buddy's camp" season four for my birthday again.
Just set my smoker on fire. I used my chimney starter like always, dumped that in and added more, then wood chips on top, put the pork butt in and retreated to the house. Half hour later my son says Dad I think it is on fire, sure enough the catch bowl had a grease fire. Needless to say, the pork but it a bit charred, but I think I caught it soon enough that it can be salvaged. Good thing I didn't have the wings on yet.
