Cooked pork baby backs last night and will again tonight as I had to take dinner for friends at their house. I finished them on their grill.
Of course I bought too many so cooking more again tonight at home.

@Clutch , see below, I am doing my part to help your Farmers in New Zealand :) , BTW, they are very good. Do you eat these? We have a nickname for them here in the states " Monkey Nuts". :lol2:

Absolutely! Sun Gold are everyone's favourite.
While @Whizzer is correct that we used to call them Chinese Gooseberries as kids we created this variety down here and changed the name for marketing purposes and well....... the rest is history.

I need to get an air fryer. What do y’all got?

We got one, used it once in a year and it takes up counter space now. :(
Pit Boss smoker gets used 3 or 4 times a week and requires very little maintenance.
Haven't had a chance to try all the woods available, right now I am using mostly Hickory.

I needa smoker, too. Right now the Weber kettle works good but it’s a lot of work if you’re cooking indirect and want to maintain a specific temp

The pit boss uses forced air and it maintains the set temp pretty damned good. The only thing I don't like is the temp probe, it seems to be way off. I pretty much just stick a fork in roasts and stuff to determine if they are done. We have done about 8 or 10 rump roasts, they come out fantastic. Takes about 5 to 6 hours to do roasts the way I cook them. I use a slow smoke setting that maintains an average of 250 degrees for about 3 hours and then turn it up to about 350.

My buddy has a Pit Boss. He’s pretty fussy and has perfected his technique. Some of the best grilling I’ve had around here.

Problem is there are so many methods and so many woods to try, as well as a million different spices. I have just kept it simple and used 50 50 mix of salt and black pepper. I still want to try apple and a few other woods. You can cook a 25 turkey on the damned thing, we are going to do one for thanksgiving , I hope it works.
