Since I got my AmeriQue I’ve been telling everyone it is foolproof, but I just proved myself wrong.
I bought myself a nice 14.5 lb choice packer last week to smoke this weekend for my coworkers.
The plan was to rub it down when I got home Friday night and slip it in the smoker Saturday night when I got home.
Well I got home late Friday and forgot about it. Not really a problem, I woke up early Saturday morning and rubbed it down, put it back in the fridge, and got the AmeriQue ready to go. All I’d have to do when I got home would be to throw the packer in, hit the on button and park the AmeriQue outside the garage.
I went about my day as planned everything was going well. Throughout the day several friends asked what I was smoking this weekend and as they expected I told them how I was already slaving away with my smoker.
We ended the day at a dinner party so when we got home the last thing on my mind was more food. Heck I was almost in a food coma. When we arrive home I slid the truck in right past the primed and ready AmeriQue, sat down and visited with my kids for a half hour, and went to bed.
At 3:30 this morning I sat straight up in bed as I realized I just threw my schedule for the day off by about 6 hours. My saving grace is that the brisket isn’t going to be server until tomorrow noon when I go back to work.
My AmeriQue may be quite forgiving, but as I just found out there are some things even it can’t overlook.
