post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
we were gone all day & it's raining now(finally getting rain here lately) so since mom is in town we bribed her into frying her homemade chicken,mashed taters,& cream gravy. tomorrow will be a smoked turkey and my first whack @ pastrami. i'll post & do pics as i go as usual. i'll be using deejay debi's tips & tricks for pastrami. wish me luck.

One thing I have learned is, you will never be able to beat Moms fried chicken and taters or pies,cakes,potato saland matter how hard you try.

check out my redneck rain break- damn i didn't even need duck(duct)tape- yeah i thought after the fact - lightning(i should know- aluminum ladder/ex-electrician)but i was desperate... rain stopped, cooking now, getting the smoke on hard & fast(o thick bleu smoke)then the low heat- mesquite- maybe oven finish(tent foil- wrap for the past.) cause mom's flight is 2 hrs earlier(nashville) than we knew about & a trip to the gibson guitar showcase room & the old opry- pics of that too coming. - so basically i'm up till midnight tonight cooking & up by 6 manana(tomorrow) so we can play tourist in nashville & take pics- i will explain the "old mulkey church" pics in a couple day.. meats smokin', fires low, the color is coming. p.s. debi- i did the after rub before the smoke cause i didn't trust wally, but i will follow the rub(what falls off) again before the refrig wrap/rest for 3 days.

Gypsy -

Did you brine the meat first? It looks raw. First you brine, then you rub, then you smoke - unless that's a corned beef but it doesn't look like one, ten you just rub - but you have to wait 2 to 3 days after the rub is applied.

Nice rain break there looks like a day at the beach! Just get away if the lighting comes back!

lol thats a t-bird & pastaroni- i just pulled the past. here's the latest pics- i'm pulling the "tom" in an hour- resting(while watching frasier) then wrapping/slicing tomorrow w/ finish pics- pastrami 2-3 days later sliced as per d.debi- p.s. i did the end rub before the smoke cause i didn't trust wally's brine marinade.. next past. will be perfect-i will get a 15lb packer & do debi's to a tee. here's pics so far.
