Well after a long summer of not smoking anything I thought it was time to get back at it.   17lbs of pork but plus 3lbs of bacon ends and pieces all after the first grind   Ground one more time, seasoned and stuffed in 26mm collagen casings. (first time I've used them)     Hanging to dry in front of the fan before the go into the smoker.   I forgot to take photos of the smoke bet here's what I did.  2 hrs heavy smoke at 130* then into a 170* water bath in...
Anyone else having issues viewing pics in posts?  Seems like half the threads I open won't display the photos.
Less worthless?
So I put it in last night after work (well 3:30 am). Put a put a full load of Hickory in the AMZNPS at 225 (1/2 inch water in pan), pulled the chip tray and chip loader half way out, a tin can on the exhaust vent and tended the AMZNPS and went to bed. Just checked it 7 hrs later and it looks like the smoker worked fine. God looking bark on both the point and flat and a AMZNPS full of ashes. Don't know if I lucked out our what, but it seems to have worked. After 7 hrs...
I have a MES 30 and was wondering if I put water in the pan if the AMAZNPS will still work.  I know a lot of threads suggest that you want it dry but I'm doing a pastrami tonight and will leave it unattended for at least 7 hours.  I'm using hickory pellets not dust.  Anyone do it this way?
I'm in the market for a new thermometer ( My Maverick finally pooped out). I've seen the igrill, which uses the blue tooth technology on smart phones to read the temp from the unit.  I was wondering if anyone knew of a company out there that has developed one that uses an android phone over the net (wifi and 3g data) to send the reading to the phone no matter where you are.  That way you can run to the store or neighbors (or the bar down the street :)) and still keep track...
Made some St Louis ribs today and I have to admit, I like them better than baby backs. All rubbed and ready for the smoker 3 hours with Hickory and Apple mixed. Then foiled them with butter Brown Sugar and honey for a couple hours then a double dose of homemade sauce and a sprinkle more of rub for a final hour. Pretty happy with the way they turned out.
So I have a friend that gave me some pheasant to smoke. I put it in a brine yesterday addend today I'm going to rub and smoke it. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on temp and time. I know pheasant is small and lean so it can dry out easily. Was thinking 200* or so till an IT of 155? The pheasants are all quartered.
I like to finish them in the fryer.  30 seconds in the deep fryer after the smoke and they crisp up nice, locking all the smokey flavor inside.    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/111268/first-competition-chicken-wings#post_690205
