Yeah chili cook off is the 27th Stan. You entering?

 

No I am just planing to eat chili and donate to the cause.  So are we back to the 20th for the hillbilly hoedown??

 

I got the emson cooker Thursday and made chicken legs and potatoes.  The potatoes were perfect but the chicken was a little too smoky.  I used 8 cherry pellets.

 

Last night I tried again with 4 more chicken legs and 4 cherry pellets set at 35 Min's.  The cooker stopped working and showed a E2 on the display.  Had to Finnish the chicken in the oven and it was good.  The smoker is fubar and will be picked up for return Monday.  Refund only no replacement option.

 

Do I order another??  Second smoke and it quit working not good but the food it makes is good.  What to do  what to do.

Ummmmm I'm not sure what to do about the 20th. It wasn't gonna be big and if cam doesn't show who's gonna make it? Guess it's a question of who's interested.

As far as buying another Emerson, id buy another one. You could have just got a lemon. If try it one more time anyway.

What did you end up paying for it Stan? Get a good deal?

Actually, if we get some cool weather in October a cheese smoke would be in order. I am holding out my last two pieces and it is killing me that I dont have anymore.

I agree, buy another pressure smoker and send that one back. How else are we going to have rabbits done in one hour? We might be shooting and cooking one at the next smoke! Smokedsoberrdrabbit....

Had a great smoke and bbq for family last night. I did some Tri Tips and beef short ribs. With corn and mini spuds.


Started it neanderthal style. Rite on the lump charcoal.
Then switched to grill in hickory smoke.






The Corn was soaked and grilled on both side's. Then a sriracha mixed with garlic , onion powder salt and pepper with butter and shake of parmesan cheese. Yumm.


Short ribs rubbed with steak shake and onion powder. Smoked for 2 hours. Put in individual aluminum foil squares. On top of a squirting of butter, brown sugar and dab of chilli sauce. Set back on smoker for about another hour. And man was that awesome.


Plated with mini spuds and cooked those first in a bag , wet and used lazy man's all purpose rub. Nuked till almost getting soft. Then on a grill plate with butter and more season. This all turned out awesome. .





Thanks all.

I did order another one with a three year warranty.  the first one was $138 and the second one was $127.  LOL  Should be here Tuesday.

 

Scott you pick a date and I will be there.  Humdinger and towerclimber both showed interest in a Sept smoke.  A cheese smoke in October sounds good too and if Cam has good fishing trips maybe a fish smoke.

 

I can always get rabbit so just let me know if you want me to bring one or two.

 

RobbQ That looks amazing.  What did you think about Lazy-mans rub?

It's the first one I've used. The all purpose. Went well with taters. And on the corn. Good tasting. Need to try the meat one soon.

The food looks amazing Rob! I am going to look into a tri tip next time. I hear they are not so expensive as a brisket.

I still have frozen fish in the freezer that needs smoking. Who wants it????
