Fourth of "Que-ly" Weekend

The air conditioning company came out to replace our air conditioner at 8 this morning. I figured if I was going to be up, I might as well start cooking. I smoked a 3 lb chuck roast to have for sandwiches whenever this weekend and a 1 lb fattie (smoked breakfast sausage) to go with some french toast (Sorry, Brandi.....I know you wanted to be here!)

The chuckie nicely rubbed with my cajun beef rub.
Rubbing the fattie with a 50/50 mix of Billy Bones Competition and XXX Cherry rubs.
Do you have blue skies and shade in your kitchen?
Look at the smoke ring on that fattie. This doesn't even taste like the same meat as pan fried sausage.
The beef chuck roast had a nice smoke ring too and great flavor but it wasn't as tender as usual. Oh well.
It still made for great sammiches!
