Turkey went in the brine this morning. I just finished rubbing the butts and they are iced down. Got some splits ready to stoke the fire at 4 am.

Actually they were "How they pain ya"!

All meats are warming up on the kitchen counter and the fire is lit in the chimney.

Looks like my tunnel smoker. The hinges are exact. What brand is yours? Mine is not very efficient. Uses way to much fuel.
How much fuel does your smoker require for a job like this?
Looks really good BTW!

Now I'm ready for the Fourth!

It was cold when I started the cook, so it took a bit of wood to get to temp and maintain it. As the sun came up, the fuel usage dropped off, but I have probably used 3 of the pecan logs I split.
