Meadow Creek TS120 Smoker Story

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Meadow Creek Smoker Loaded

Three weeks ago on Memorial Day, I pulled a Meadow Creek TS120 Smoker into my back yard and loaded it down with lots of exciting proteins. We enjoyed barbecue throughout the day, and in the evening had my parents and family over for dinner.

I filled the smoker with the following: 6 slabs of St. Louis ribs, 4 whole chickens, 2 sausage logs, a brisket, 4 tenderloins, 4 pounds of meatloaf, potatoes, and onions. I fired the smoker around 10:20 in the morning and pulled the last of the food off at 5:30, around 7 hours later. Everything was knock-your-socks off delicious, except for my lean grass-fed brisket, which somehow got burned on the bottom side, but still turned out WAY to good to throw to the dog.


Memorial Day Barbecue on the PR36 Smoker

Friday, June 10th, 2011

I hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying plenty of barbecue. I just love cooking and eating in the back yard!

On Memorial Day, Marlin and I got together and cooked a whole bunch of stuff on Meadow Creek’s PR36 Backyard Smoker. The PR36 Smoker is small, versatile, and easy to use. For indirect (low and slow) cooking, we build the fire beneath the drip pan. Or you can build your fire on the drip pan for direct heat grilling.

Here is a photo album to get your mouth watering and your brain spinning. We cooked meatloaf, pork tenderloin, a whole chicken, potatoes, onions, and steaks. Was it ever good! :)

Have fun,
