Fried Catfish, Shrimp, and Beer!!!!
Awesome Supper !!!!!
Todd I used Hickory,Oak and Cherry pellets.. I have a piece of crap smoker that I bought for 25 bucks last year new at Walmart. It had a broke leg was rusty and the heat element did not last thru the 2nd smoke. It has no chip pan no chip tray and no vents except a 1 in. hole at the back top of the smoker. I had to drill a hole in it and put a fish tank air pump hose in it to get enough air to burn the pellets...Remember..
I pulled the bacon after 10 1/2 hours of smoke and I had only used 2 rows of pellets. It had a good slow burn to it . I had cut the air supply way back to get a slow burn...
Well I have heard it and I have heard it many times but now I am going to say it..THAT WAS THE BEST BACON I HAVE EVER EATEN. It had a real good smokey taste and the saltyness was perfect.
If I can do it then ANYBODY can do it....Todd since I turned the air down and only used 2 rows in 10 1/2 hrs it will put out much more smoke if I really put the air to it...I have a adjustable airflow knob on my air pump. It works out real good for controlling your pellet burn. I guess that I would have gotten about 16hrs out of 1 tray if I would have keep it smoking...In the future I am going to buy me a MES40 and I will set it up so I can control my airflow the same way...
It's tuff when it isn't tomato season in your area.
Off season store bought are getting better than they used to be, but still nothing like your own vine ripened.
Sometimes I have to fall back on my "Grilled Cheese with Bacon" Sammy (I think I posted one of those).
That looks awesome! I've been thinking about doing some bacon myself and now you've convinced me. That is officially on my list of things to smoke! That list is getting longer and longer. I better get busy!
Thanks for sharing!
