Friday,
I did the first cook on Little Mama the first seasoning was just to seal up the steal because I could not cook that weekend.
I like to season my cookers with leg quarters because they take a lot of spice and create an awesome smell when they are high heat smoking.
This is what the first Pam spray seasoning did to the chamber.



40 lbs. of leg quarters seasoned with Big Ron's competition rub.


I ran the cooker between 275° and 325° the chicken looking pretty Happy.




The first run off.


All done and resting in the cambro for later. Debbie and I pulled the chicken bagged and froze it for later use.


After the chicken was off I cleaned up the grates and closed the intakes a bit to settle her down. I am liking how responsive she is to the intake adjustments.


The grates are looking better after every cook now.






Saturday,
We split 2.5/3 cords of red oak. A friend of mine and fellow cook team has about 5 trees that needed to go off some property so a few weeks back he and I along with another friend cut down two blocked them and hauled them to my house for later splitting. two splitters working and a crew of 7 folks we knocked it out.
One trailer load headed to the country to his place. Two 10' trailers were loaded earlier and hauled off to another teams home.


Some of the wood was already on my front area. Three of the racks are new.


Then we finished off the evening relaxing visiting and cooking up 70 lbs. of crawfish.

The rig and wood pile are more than excellent, Kevin.

Those crawfish have me drooling. I haven't been able to suck the heads and eat the tails since I left NOLA 11 years ago...and I miss it.

You guys sure know how to live it up down there. Seasoning cookers, busting wood, smoking chickens, crawfish cooking and sitting in the rocking chair. All I can say is I'm hungry now after looking at all that. Awesome!!!
