It may sound strange but Columbus Day is my favorite day of the year. Ask why, I have day off, wifey has to work and day care for my two kids (4 and 1.5) is open!!! finally a true day to MYSELF!!
So being the good guy I am, I took my time off to give the house a good cleaning and then thought, hmmmmmm its nice outside, what should I do, cook dinner? Sure! What do I make? With the new hobby of coarse I was thinking what to smoke. So I ran down to the store and picked up a 4 lbs spoon roast, 3 nice large patatos, and ingrediants for home made spatzel.
So here we go,
Light covering of EVOO, and the rub, salt, pepper, seasing salt, onion, garlic, and a splash of paprika.
Here we are after a nice rub down......off to the fridge for a bit
So while the roast is in the fridge I thought i'd get the potatos ready, nice big bakers, rubbed in some garlic infused EVOO, the dusted with pepper and garlic sea salt. Will let them sit for a while.
Took the meat out after a 2 hour nap in the fridge, BEAR view of a true bears meal raw meat!!!
Close up, if my wife would let me Id eat it like this!!!
So seing the potatos will take longer than the meat I started them in the nuke for twenty min as I got my red bullet loaded. Temp a rock solid 238. loaded with a few hickory chunks and apple chips.
Off to the smoker we go.
So we been on the smoker for an hour and half now and IT is at 90 started at 48. Smells so damn good. We like our meat a nice room temp and a nice solid pink so I will carry her to 135 and then a no tent rest till sides are complete.
Going to do a rough mash with the potato's add some butter and cream and extra salt and pepper, to bad I dont have some bacon and chives ready to go!
Wife will then make some home made spatzel ( recipe from my hungarian great grandmother )
I will keep this updated as we go.
Thanks and hope you enjoy!
