    Smoke Day 2019 in Raymond, Wisconsin

    yes, we finally celebrated Smoke Day yesterday, July 20th...
    1st things first.... set up The Banner....



    ...and The Flag.



    The night before, the yard was trimmed and ready, and the smokers were set up ready to use.





    a 14 pound brisket was trimmed to 10½lbs...
    and an 18½ pound brisket was trimmed to 13 lbs... then both seasoned with salt & pepper.
    Seven racks of Saint Louis spares were cleaned and trimmed early Saturday morning.

    on Smoke Day, the WSCG was fired up at 9:30am with the ribs on at 10am (on schedule).
    Tried to fit all 7 racks on this smoker, but it was too tight... the 26" kettle was converted to house two racks.



    the smaller brisket hit 200º after 11 hours 15 minutes (11:15am)...



    removed it from the WSM and wrapped in foil to wait...



    the second brisket finished after 14 hours (2pm or so)... (sorry, no photo after it came off)

    the ribs were done at 3pm (about 5 hours) and sliced.




    slicing the brisket was next... decided to CHOP the beef... mix fat with lean.





    timing was spot on.
    including the rain. started right about time to eat....
    but some folks were comfy outside staying dry...





    ...while others got the Q.



    this guy on the right is a good ol' friend of mine, haven't seen since the late 80's.
    Great to see you again, Danny!



    the rain eventually ended and we got to socialize a bit in a drier atmostphere....



    Thank you all for viewing AND waiting for Lampe's Smoke Day posting.
    Special thanks to our leader, Chris Allingham!
