    A little earlier in the evening, brats and Vidalia onion slices on the gas grill. Cooked low and slow for about 40 minutes, turning once, running only the far right burner. Then after 40 minutes of indirect, I cooked them direct over the lowest setting possible, for just a few minutes to get some nice grill marks on them. I’m not a big onion person, however grilled Vidalia sweet onions in small quantities is okay. One of those slices was for me, the rest for my wife!

    First try with pork shoulder. Low and slow on the way to pulled pork. I'm new to my Kamado and smoking, but not to grilling.

    That is looking good. If you ever have kamado questions, shoot me a pm. I've been using one for longer than I care to remember.

    Thank you! I will ask questions. Like how to wait for the last 10 degrees with a hungry family waiting. :)

    I am sure they will let you know that you should have started earlier so they could eat 10 minutes ago. :)

    That looks great. Nice job.

    This Lyfe Tyme Grill/Smoker has been with me, for 25 years, and is still going strong. It is a heavy duty smoker, that requires you know the quirks it has. But, when you learn it, it can produce some of the best smoked meats around.
    It has a 38 inch X 16 inch Cooking/Smoking area, that can hold 2 full sized briskets, as well as a 18x18 inch cooking area over the firebox. The steel grates were burned out, so, I went to a local BBQ pit maker, and had him cut some new grates(I should have done this a long while back).
    The other day, I smoked a couple of pork roasts, overnight, and it was some of the best ever. I used some Live Oak, that was given to me, by a neighbor, who had his tree cut down. It is some of the toughest wood to split, but the best out there to smoke with. Slow burning, long lasting, and consistent heat. Not a huge producer of smoke, but, just the right amount. Very little wood was needed, for an 8 hrs smoke. The taste was very smooth, deep, and not acrid.

    It could use a good sand blasting, and some new paint, but that would make it lose some of its charm. BTW, those wood handles are made from an Elm tree I cut down, over the summer. They work great, and they were free.

    Like the smoker, one of my friends has one of those. But I love the Weber kettle grill next to it! I know they’ve made different colors through the years, but I don’t remember seeing one that color. I’m currently using a red anniversary model that I believe was a limited run.

    It hit 90 for the second time this year today and unfortunately the yard work could not wait. Fired up the kamado and made a Ham, Broccoli, & Cheese Quiche. Baked around 385F for about 40 minutes.

    Thanks. It turned out pretty well. Unfortunately not, hungry co workers devoured the rest of it.
