Weekend Catering for The Natures Conservancy - Page 2

post #21 of 35
Much obliged goat, about the smoke ring...my understanding is the ring will only form when the meat is between 40*-140*,I allways get a smoke ring but not as purty as yours, that being said do you put it on right from the fridge or let it warm up a bit, also what temp are ya running the smoker at when you put the meat on. Thanks

I took the briskets out of the fridg and seasoned them right up. My pit was about 300* when I put the briskets on. The cold meat soon took it down to about 200*. I left it there for about 4 hours and then took it up to 240*ish.

As much as I love smoking meat, deep down I am a grilled steak man and those cut rib-eyes look just about my size!!

Like the mail, come rain, hail, sleet, or snow the food must go on the table. Friday the wind blew about 30 to 40 mph. If any of you have ever cooked in a Dutch oven, this can be a trick. I BROWNED one pan of rolls on the bottom and another on the top and a cobbler in the middle. Saturday morning brought rain. The rest of Saturday was a chamber of commerce day. Here are some pics. http://img141.imageshack.us/slidesho...049175rtp.smil

Goat that is one heavy looking fire pan!!! I think I pulled a muscle just looking at it. So how many men and boys does it take to lift that thing into the back of your pickā€™em up truck or does it stay at the ranch?

By the way-nice dutch ovens you have there!!

IDOS is having their Convention April 14th if you can make it up to my neck of the woods.

Goat, that's a fantastic looking catering outfit you have. You must have been pretty darn busy....but if you love it, it's worth it. Great job!

I built that fire box because some folks do not like you to build a fire on the ground, or on cement, or on asphalt. I have a place for it on the back of my cook wagon. I just stand it up, walk it over to the right place, let it fall, pick up the other end and slide it into place. I keep telling myself that each year it gets lighter because of rust. I think it will last as long as I do. My ISP is having problems and was told yesterday that it will be at least 2 weeks before they can send a repairman. I will post a pic when they get me up and running at home.

As for the iron, thanks. That is just a small portion of what I have accumulated over the years.

It is Spring here in the desert Southwest and goats are kidding, bees are buzzing, etc., so I better stay home and tend to some of that.
