While the charchoal heats up, I cut down logs from the firewood pile. I used white oak this time. After I cut the logs into 7-8" sections, I used a small hatchet to split it into 1-2" diameter pieces.

Now that the coals are ready, I add some of the oak


Once the oak burns down a little, it's time for the meat

After 30 mintues (now 4 1/2 hrs) the chicken, short ribs and brats come off and the lump Mesquite goes on.



The chicken, short ribs, brats and 2 ears of corn go on the gas grill to finish cooking. When the brats are just about done, I finish them off on the grill surface. The beer has now reduced 75%

Thanks. I like using short ribs two fold: they are cheap, and tasty.

This is just mean I tell you - I'm starving!!!!!!!!!!!!

GREAT thread - I always love pics - makes things more attainable if that makes sense.

And yes, I did gasp when I saw the Kraft BBQ sauce - not that there's ANYTHING wrong with it but something just didn't match up - all this work to smoke this lovely meat and then............... Kraft...... I was going to PM you my BBQ sauce recipe

Excellent photo essay J.

Thanks. Looks great. I'm in the market for a new grill, and your essay makes me rethink the whole 'smoker' thang. Might look at 'combo' grills now.
