ITS THAT TIME OF The YEAR THAT ALL GOOD THINGS MAKE US SMOKE

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

This weekend, the one just prior to thanksgiving every year spurs me into doing huge smoke jobs.

this weekend is no exception.

1. maple-crushed peppercorn bacons

   (8) 10 lb bellies been curing (8) gal Vat

   since Veterans Day.

2. 20 front shoulder roasts/ making

    making into 5 lb hams.

    curing now for 4 days in 15 gal. vat of

     pure maple, brown sugar, and 1lb of cloves.

     and fully injected.

3. (10) 20 lb turkeys been dry cure rub now

    for (3) days.

4. 50 lbs breakfast sausage. put 10 lbs in rings

     and smoke the rest 1 lb packages and freeze.

5. 50 llb pineapple brats, just batch and freeze

    (5) per lb. (250) count.

6. 50 lbs jalapeno and cheddar brats and freeze

     (5) per lb (250 count

7. 130 lbs reg brats and freeze

     (5) per lb (650) count

8. (8) baby back (spare rib) slabs rubbing them dawn

     tonight and let stand,

Every thing is going into the smoker at 6:am Sat,

      morning, cold smoke at around 98 to 100 deg. for

       6 hours. Then its blast off time, crank on the

       heat and cook it out.

       hoping to pull the last turkeys at midnight

Right at 500 lbs of meat.

Makes great thanksgiving and Christmas gifts.

So i guess you could say my shopping will be over this weekend.

 

Hopefully this coming week i can make it out into the timber and take a couple deer with my bow tags

and the following weekend do summer sausages and sticks.

Got to love this time of year.  

I'll try to post  some pictures.

I have looked at so much smoked meat that I can almost taste it from a picture.

I do wish that I had the threads that I started back. But that is a good reminder of why you should take notes. The only problem is on some I didn't take notes:th_crybaby2:

Happy smoken.

That turkey came in late my daughter brought it over a couple days late,

We didn't have time to brine it out so it will just have to be a normal turkey. 

We had plenty though and she left with a smoked one.  I think it was a fair trade.

Having a brat feed at the office the 10th  so far 45 have singed up.  

the office will pick up all but the meat. which I will supply (free)  

 Opening deer season this weekend in Iowa, (gun) hoping to put some meat on the table.

 Watch out Rudolf.

Holiday season, can never go wrong with some driedstick's smoked pretzels or some spicy and sweet smoked nuts by Scarbelly. I'm going to be trying to find time to do a batch of each of these to include for holiday gift baskets, along with smoked cheese and beef sticks.
