Thanksgiving Results

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I smoked two pork tenderloins on Sunday. I had rubbed with yellow mustard and then a mix of brown sugar, cumin, paparika, salt, pepper. Holy cow, it turned out soooo good. Nice red smoke ring. My wife was quivering about how moist and tender it was. I also had a spiral sliced bone-in ham. Hormel 81? I set that on a round pan, open end down, spiked it with cloves. After the temp got up to about 80-90, started spraying with Apple juice, at 110, started using the honey mix that they include, just poured around the top, let gravity take it down. Again wow, but the tenderloin won over. Lots of ham leftovers for me! It was about 25-30 degrees on Sunday and my ECB struggled at first to bring the tenderloin up, until I got creative. Took two large waste cans, placed around the ecb to block the wind. Bingo, temp shot up! You guys rock. I may only post questions and not have a lot to add right now, but I appreciate all your advice and willingness to share ideas/thoughts/recipes!

Glad your Thanksgiving smoke went so well. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Now you are going to have lots of requests to produce similar results for other get-togethers. (but that ain't all bad... more reasons to fire up the smoker) icon_smile.gif

There WILL be some disappointed folks around here cuz the didn't get their Q-view.

Good job! Way to go!

Yep, I've already been asked to do another home-cured ham and turkey breast for Christmas. The overwhelming consensus was that my ham was better than a Honey baked. :-)

Well, if he found 25# here, then that explains why my pants shrunk while hanging in the closet... PDT_Armataz_01_23.gif

Congrats on a great smoke my friend. Nice trick with the waste cans too!

HawgHeaven... we won't discuss waistlines during the holidays, it might have a bad effect on the menu. I'll take seconds please!

Bubba, i know, i try to get Q-view pics, but my wife thinks I am crazy when I break out the camera to photo raw meat. Like i said, she thinks i am crazy, little does she know, she's right. Crazy for Q!
