    Wife is out of country for 2 months, over at Abu Dhabis Mayo Clinic assisting them with their regular care while the natives deal with their covid cases.

    Which .means two things.
    1. My underwater and socks are all over the floor and I dont have to pick em up.
    2. I make what I want and I don't have to share.

    Fri Sat spent the day on the river bowfishing. Today's a rainy mess so I fired up the smoker.

    Start with some ABT's.

    Some jacked up beans that had the ribs above them, catching them drippings.

    For the past 15 years, I used a everse flow stick burner and a UDS. Both worked great.

    2 years ago I pulled the trigger on a Green Mountain pellet popper. I can't see myself ever going back to either of the previous ones. Simple, and pretty much a set it and forget it type of smoker/grill.

    Gets hot enough to do a great sear on a ribeye as well.

    Smoke looks great but the 2 months no wife sounds like a real nice deal

    Meat which model do you have? there are several dealers not too far away from me. How how hot can you get it to sear your rib eyes. I was looking at traegers but I read they don't get hot enough to really grill a steak.

    I have the Daniel boone. You could spend a couple hundred more and get the jim bowie, but I found it easier and less expensive to build a second rack, doubling the grilling area.
