Y'all remember when we started the BBQ Smoking series and I told you that you're going to screw something up? Well, this morning it was my turn. I had some turkey legs and a bourbon pecan pie on the pit. Unexpected flare up sent major flames into the smoke chamber. I had to shut down the damper and the smoke stacks. Singed my eyebrows and the pie was scorched and ruined. Back to the drawing board, (or kitchen as it was.) The turkey legs will be fine. The pie had to be remade.
My point? Fear not. The smoking gods chose me today. Hopefully all of your smoked turkeys, hams, pies, prime ribs, etc., turn out well today.
And don't worry if you do screw it up, just gather yourself and try again!
Happy Thanksgiving all. Hook Em!
