Got this smokey hollows electric for christmas and finally had time to give her the ole maiden voyage. Added some holes in the wood pan but thats all, definately gonna need to get tweaked a little more as it tends to loose its smoke after a bit. But when it is smoking its the picture perfect thin blue i read about on here. wanted to see how it did before i started hacking holes in the thing.
So decided to do some chicken breast i had in the freezer that way if it goes bad i'm not out much.
Injected with creole butter, 2 were rubbed in a mesquite chipolte rub, one was left just injected then wrapped in bacon
Went and bought some supplies, taylor digital thermo, taylor regular analog to check, mesquite, apple and hickory chips(for this one using hickory and apple) a good knife (ex took all the good ones we had) and materials for "maniac beans" which we'll get to later.
Injected and 2 of em rubbed then back into the fridge for a few hours
Wrapped and ready
Started the beans, 2 cans of bush's original, some chopped up onion, 2 cans of mild green chile's and more bacon
Cooked the bacon lightly in a pan, added onions till cooked then tossed in the green chile's just to give em a bit before they went into the beans
Here's what i'm working with, 30" smokey hollows, were predicting wind and rain so opted to go for the garage, so far so good hasnt gotten to smokey with the door cracked, and of course favorite beverage and a magazine been sitting out there just relaxing smelling the smells
After about an hour i flipped the chicken, added chips and put the beans in the smoker for some flavor, this was at 120* cannot wait!!!
More to come!!
