I'm lovin' my MES, so I'm finally gettin' to cook up some good stuff!
I gave BBB a go yesterday. Thanks to ChefRob and Bear for their contributions!
I tried my best to follow instructions...lol
I used TQ (as directed on the bag), garlic and pepper, and some raw sugar.
I rubbed it down and left it in the fridge for 7 days. I soaked it in ice water for an hour after removing it from the fridge.
I put 'em in the smoker and kept the temp around 120 for the first couple hours then bumped it up later cuz it was getting late. Total smoke time was 5 1/2 hours. I only used a few chips of hickory.
Pulled 'em out at 140 degrees, I wanted to wait till 160 but it was getting late.
I let them cool, then wrapped them and put them in the fridge. At lunch today, I couldn't wait any longer so I cut some off and fried it up. Not bad!! Especially for my first time.
Saltiness is good, flavor is good, smokiness is good.
I typed this all up and then my browser crashed when attaching pics... arrgh!
