    Actually, I got some venison as well, but will first do a test-run to get my bearings. Invited some victims to try the first batch tomorrow night.

    Is that thing the upgraded version of a V-2? Looks like the yerman scientists have a little more work to do...

    Sorry to read about your mom, dementia is horrible so best wishes sent your way despite our TD differences.

    I'll program it to fly your way, Butterfly handed me the coordinates of your residence after his successful hack.

    5 Celsius, no rain, a little breezy, time to go ahead as planned.

    First, gotta run it in for at least half an hour before adding any food.

    Think I have enough charcoal going to add the ash wood.



    Add the dripping pan and grill with the pork.



    Beef on the second floor.

    Ain't you supposed to keep that smoke on the inside of the smoker?

    Looks a bit sinister doesn't it.

    Maybe for gassing genetically inferior dwarves one at a time. Zyklon-B cannisters supplied separately. Caution - Wear a gas mask at all times when opening the little inspection door to see if he is done yet!

    Yes, I've done it before, around 6 hours I'd guess, but running out of time, had a few chores this morning and started late. Also, this smoker doesn't seem to heat up as the other one, prolly great for cold-smoking bacon and fish. Bit early to tell, this is the trial run.

    Had a little bit of the beef, not through yet.

    Rushed it in the end, took out the dripping pan and BBQed with charcoal for the last stretch.
    Discovered that the temperature gauge is useless and overdone the pork a bit, still very tasty though. The smoke flavour was dominant, also the brine hadn't soaked through the pork long enough. There is quite a bit of room for future improvements....

    Looked like this before serving, no, it's not burned, the colour is from the smoke.

    ...and then the camera battery was empty. lol

    A mate with his recently arrived Thai bird came over, she'd been missing Thai food, so I had prepared a huge bowl of Yam Winsen for starters. Fusion: included Mango and German Bockwurst, went down a treat.
    The leftover:



    The beef is gone, the remaining pork will be lunch for the next few days, with a drop of mustard and salad.

    I don't think he did. This looks to me like a brinkman smoker.

    Because you have not sealed it properly.

    Indeed it is and that is not a bad smoke ring for your first go.
