I haven't been taking many pictures lately, here's a typical winter morning scene. I'm one of the few maniacs looking forward to the snow on Sunday. Now where did I put my ski boots?........

Thanks to my new Smokenator 1000, I am able to get the kettle temperature below 250 F, welcome to flavour country! If you have a Weber bbq, pick up one of these muthas!
The finished product.
I smoked the brisket with oak chunks I dug out of last year's firewood pile. Don't believe everything 'purists' say, the smoke did not impart a bitter or weird flavour. I was very pleased with the results, check out that smoke ring! I'm glad I planned ahead and had the brisket marinating in the rub for 24 hours, great flavour.
When the recipe says 7-8 hour cooking time, they ain't kiddin'. I smoked it for ~5 hours and had to finish it in the oven. Lesson learned.

The switchback starts to fill up with early race leaders in the first lap.
All photos Dec. 1, 2013 @ the M.A.R.C., Dayspring, NS
Still more room at the top....
Almost full of riders!
I decided to play around with capturing speed blur shots for the rest of the race, here are some of my better results:
Shawn Marshall, race leader for many laps, finished #2.
Not sure if the smiles were due to the early stage of the race or the fact that the labyrinth/spiral/vortex race feature was gone.
Shane Eno with his eye on the prize.
Jack be nimble....
Glad I lucked out and got two racers in this shot.
Jack be quick....
The aftermath of the race. Mild temps made for slicker conditions than last week. I witnessed a couple spills during the race but luckily nothing serious.
