    That tractor trailer smoker - or one very similar - is in Burton, Texas, just "down the road" from my Church. And the "smoking gun", or one very similar, is in Decker Prairie, just down the road from my house.

    Hadn't seen the smokin' bug before.

    He also has an infrared turkey fryer that makes fried turkey without oil. His back patio is full of cookers and grills.

    He likes to throw BBQ parties.

    I wonder if I should get him this for his birthday

    Even if you close the vent on top? Oh... I see.. probably plenty of places for air (and heat / smoke) to come out between the top and bottom halves of the main section, eh? Yeah, if I close the damper on top, it pretty well chokes the fire down to a smoulder.

    I have two different friends who tell me they cook theirs first THEN smoke it for about 4 hours...they both swear by it...I may have to try it to see. Ever heard of that?
    Yeah, I've heard of that, no, I've never tried it. It just sounds so wrong!

    EGGzackly... mine usually smokes through most of the night, then begins to cool off by morning - So, yeah, I'll wrap it in foil and put it in the oven, usually at 200 degrees

    I usually "cold smoke" my meat for 4-6 hours then put it in the oven overnight at really low temp...like 225 deg.

    Yeah, I have a friend, my exact same age, kinda, whose wife does all the grilling. It just aint right!
    You got that right!

    Around my house/my family, grilling and smoking are left to the menfolk... None of them want to stand out in the heat (or lately RAIN) in order to fix supper....

    I discovered the secret was doing this late at night, then going to bed so I'm not tempted to peek at the meat as it cooked. Every time you open the lid to peek, you're losing heat and smoke.

    And... you think GIRLS don't grill or smoke? You SEXIST, you!
