Thunderstorms and camping

Cramped this weekend at Mann Creek campground in Weiser Idaho and we had rain and thunderstorms all weekend with hail and high winds. However that is not the reason for posting. I was very pleased with the way my brackets and poles for my awning performed. I got the brackets from Old Coot and poles from Turbs.

We were in-between storms when the pic was taken, that is me in the gray sweat shirt, drinking gin and tonic lol there are two huge TriTips in the barbecue. If you have a awning like mine (electric) these brackets and poles are really the way to go. I secured one to a ground anchor and the other to the metal picnic table. Even with the high winds and hail the awning did fine. Thanks guys for making quality equipment.

Glad they work for you and everyone else that has purchased them.

set the temp of the pellet barbecue @ 350 and cooked both to an internal temp of about 125 to 130 took about 3 hours. Then let rest covered in foil to finish. They turned out great

I smoke mine for an hour at 175 deg in my pellet grill and then pull them and crank up the grill to 500 deg F. Once at temp, I seat them until interior temp is about 125 deg F. They pick up another 5 degrees resting.

I season the meat prior to searing with Durkee steak dust. This stuff is incredible and I use it on steaks, burgers, and pulled pork.

Brackets and poles work amazing, don't they? I have the brackets from OC but use all-aluminum painters poles. They have already saved my awning a couple of times.
