What are you barbecuing on Smoke Day?

Unfortunately, I live in Northeastern NJ and the stores are empty. There is literally *no* meat, let alone much of anything else. I know I can order online but too much $$$. I made the pastrami recipe here for St. Pats day, but I think that's the last thing I'm going to be able to make for a while. :(

I have two racks of ribs, so that's probably what I'll be smoking. My choices are limited since I moved 6 months ago, and had to give up the 19-cubic-foot freezer I had for 40+ years. No more buying a case of butts when they are on sale. :cry:

Leaning toward a turkey seeing that May is about halfway from last Thanksgiving to next Thanksgiving and we love turkey. Spin it on the roti might be good.

I've got an SRF gold I bought a while back for a special occasion. Well, life is short. Time to fire that bad boy up!

Yeah, I selected brisket under the "BC" (before coronavirus) mindset that I could just trot out and get whatever I wanted for Smoke Day. :( So I will hope for brisket, but I do have a frozen turkey in the freezer, that will be my fallback position.

After reading this thread I did an inventory of my freezer. I have butts, ribs, chuck roasts and I forgot I also have a nice Sirloin Tip Roast.
I'm leaning towards the roast.

Hopefully, pork will be plentiful again. If so, 4 Butts.
Went to Harris Teeter at 6:00 am. They only had three bone in butts in the pork section. I asked the guy working in the meat section if they had any butts in the back. He sent a guy out with a huge box of butts. That’s the most enjoyable grocery shopping I’ve ever done!

Excellent idea Russ! It HAS been quite a while... but i think i'll go this route BEFORE SD16... i like to let it sit overnight and serve the next day...

Our meat and poultry supply is presently A-OK here in the Country of Costa Rica and thinking of doing my first Hanging-RiB Technique on my WSM 18" Classic.

My traditional item of choice is a good old fashioned pork shoulder. I find myself doing more and more of these with kids running around now since they are so forgiving.

If I can't find one I'll probably do a turkey breast. Winn Dixie in my town has them on sale 99 cents a pound so I'll get 2 or 3 if I can find them.

I was leaning towards baby backs but the rest of my clan is requesting a repeat for a whole spatchcock chicken I smoked a few weeks ago.

Hey friends,
I’ll go for ribs St. Louis cut this year, smoked with cherry wood, seasoned with magic dust and glazed with a self made cola based bbq sauce.
I just hope my T-shirt will arrive in time! :cool:

2018 I had babyback ribs because I can’t get a St. Louis cut.

2019 I had Pulled pork because I can’t get any ribs

2020 I am fu**** prepared and got my ribs already this week! :)
