Salmon, Butts & Wings (Qview Heavy)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Well I was long over due for a batch of salmon. My mother in law has been trying to get me to do a batch for a month or so and I finally found the time. My brother came to town so we smoked up 8 fillets of salmon, 2 butts and some wings for lunch.
I brined the salmon over night with a brown sugar/salt mix then rinsed and added some brown sugar, garlic powder and pepper.

On the smoker.

All done and ready to vacuum seal.

I didn't have any of my rub on hand so I used Bad Byrons Butt rub on the one and Bone Sucking Sauce rub on the other. I wasn't impressed with the bone sucking sauce rub at all. No flavor! We injected the butts with Cherry Dr. Pepper the night before.

 

The two butts.

In the UDS for a smoke bath.

Foiled at 165 with a little splash of apple juice in the foil.

Pulled it at 205 and rested in the cooler for an hour. This butt pulled like a dream. The bone slid right out.

Added a little finishing sauce then off to the walking in freezer (aka my garage)

We threw some wings on to eat for supper. Rubbed them with McCormic wing seasoning and cover half of them with a local wing joints Diablo wing sauce and the other half with Cattlemans Gold sauce.

About to head to the smoker.

All done and ready to eat.

It was a beautiful day of smoking here in ND. No wind and -3 degrees when the butts went on in the morning. Here are a few pics of my yard/smoker after the two blizzards we had last week.

The smoke shack filled with salmon. we had a little shoveling to do before we could get to the smoker.

Man oh Man there Rbrans that some good looking food you have there. That seams like an awful lot of work just to use your smoker. But the work was worth it I'm sure just looking at the Q. You done good there son.

Nice looking grub PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif I like the racks you used for some of the salmon. Great way to add more space to the smoker having them stacked up like that. I need to get some of those. Man, you got some snow there! I miss getting snow like that....we're supposed to get an inch today.....weak! HAHA

Those stacked racks are cheap at Walmart. Like $10 for a package of 3 racks and you can stack them on top of each other. I think they were actually baking cooling racks but they work great for the smoker. I am going to be getting some more then I won't have to dirty so many cookie sheets when prepping the meat.

Sounds like a fun day, other than the shoveling. And here I've been complaining about a few inches. icon_redface.gif

I don't use a wet brine I use a dry rub brine. Its a mix of brown sugar and salt.

Rick all this picture needs is a Witchdoctor with a bone through his nose to be stirring the pot with a great big spoon...
