Well after waking up to a few inches of snow today i decided to start up GOLIATH my new smoker a little early so as to get it up to temp FOR HIS 1ST COOK/SMOKE... went into the shop and the and the brand new Auberins PID was dead. thought i froze it BUT was the fuse. PANIC CITY ... cant read the size of fuse, went to Canadian tire, Wally World, then came back to look at the manual... nowhere in the manual does it say what the fuse size is so off i go knowing i can run 13 amps at 120v. i live in a very small town and 1 store that had electronics was open and i picked up a 10 amp fuse , same size and it worked ... this of course was after i went thru the guantlet, no sand on the roads, sheer ice, hit a curb and bumped off a hubcap... AND I HAVE A BIG 4 X 4 HA HA HA.
anyways start the unit up,THEN SHOVEL MY SNOW TO BURN OFF THE HIGH COMPRESSION FIT I WAS GONNA HAVE..
put a mix of chips and sawdust in my smoke generator and now it wants to be a &**%$#@( but got that figured out and SMOKING AWAY WE DID,
i had brined a whole pork loin, and saw on the site someone had made smoked scalloped potatoes so i made that up too in my regular style.
at the end of the day when my IT hit 148 i wrapped it, took out the spuds and as i write this it is resting in foil.
HERE ARE SOME PICS !!!!
thought i would show ya the yard 1st .. ha ha ha
Goliath's smoke stack outta my shop door
scalloped spuds on top, and the loin
close up of the loin, Auberins probe in 1 and a Maverick in the other, 1 to 2 degrees difference the whole smoke so that is awesome !!!!
and there is the final product on a roller chest in the shop......
NOW TO TASTE ... :0)
