I ended up with back pains last week, and the Doc has me on a couple perscriptions so I couldn't get much done.
I did BBQ a couple days, but the biggest things I did was service BMP. Cleaned and greased all the zirks, including the deck mandrels, Changed the oil, and pulled a sample of Hydro fluid (looks good) to me.

I have a difficult time reading the correct oil level on the dip stick with fresh oil. Any one else have this issue?

Also pulled the Craftsmans out, mainly to air the tires and charge the batteries.

Rest of the weekend spent in the recliner watching "How it is made".

Thanks for viewing.

Quite good, The drum sticks hang well on it, I use the two side burners and leave the Center one off, and place the drum sticks over the center. I close the lid and bring the temp to 350 for 1-1/2 beer. Then I take a long stem themomter and poke a hole through each leg to let some of the juices drain, then back to 350 for another beer or so. Then to check front / middle / back to see if we are close to 185 internal. Add BBQ sause, and another 1/2 beer later they are done. Every one likes them!

Thanks all, my back is getting better, and hopefully I will find a winter project soon, I can only do so much maintenance on the three tractors. I ended up adding freon to the car this evening, 1/2 can low. The BBQ is a dual Gas / Charcole with outside gas burner and smoker box. Still trying to get the smoker figured out, Did a brisquet with it, think I used too much hickory. Oh well, it was ate anyhow.

I like your cooking times in the recipe!
