My Kitchen Sink Smoke (Almost one of everything)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I am smoking for the entire neighborhood this afternoon, as I need to get some time on my smoker that I built before I use it in a contest coming up (http://smokingmeatforums.com/forums/...ad.php?t=76817) . I put out the email to bring what you wanted to smoke...so here's what's on the menu today:

3 pork butts. I trimmed them and rubbed them last night, using a combination of Rudy's Rub, Magic Dust, and Cowtown Squeal. I also injected one with Chris Lilly's injection (apple juice, sugar, worstershire).

I'm also experimenting with Pignit's bacon wrapped chicken gizzards just for fun.

Here they are in the smoker....

Doing a 14 lb turkey, and making gravy in the smoker too (If you haven't done this, it is an absolute must). I brined it last night and rubbed it with olive oil thyme and sage butter. Also doing some chicken quarters in there too.

Here's the broth and veggies catching some turkey drippings and also some thin blue.

I have 4 racks of ribs...two spares and two baby backs.

I'm also going to do two pork tenderloins, and about 6 lbs of sausage. Right now I'm running with wild cherry wood, but I have to be honest, since I'm splitting wood as I need it, I will probably use what ever looks easiest to bust open at the time. Smoker is doing great, I'll try to update again later.

lookin real good, thats gonna be a feast. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

I like that cowtown squeal rub. I might get some of that for the ribs, and butt I am doing this weekend, or I may toss together my own. I am also a big believer in the injection for the butts.

Love the idea of catching the drippings and making a smoked gravy.
Have fun!

Looks Great, PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif did you say it was for the neighborhood? The neighbors must love you.

When I lived in Desoto all my neighbors did was bitch when I fired up My Freightliner at 4:30AM. LOL icon_mrgreen.gif

I live in a mostly rural area, and my neighbors are really cool. There is always someone doing something, and there is a real sense of community as people will lend a hand or if nothing else, they will supervise your work and make sure the beer stays cold!

Since my new smoker is big, I put out the call to all the neighbors so I can fill it up. I like to smoke, and they sure like to eat, so it works out really well. Besides, when they start getting around this evening, I am going to have a bunch of buddies driving their gators full of beer to my house!

Awesome start.Looks like some points definetly on the way.

I also love the way the smoke permeates the drippings.

I seem to make the gravy alot the next day and the kitchen fills with that smokey goodness

Been modifying chris lillys myself for years-love it....You ever inject foil juices into butt-after final internal- and right before resting-that is the bomb...lots of flavor in those juices....

Excellent start! You'll really love them Gizzards from Pign'It. I made them earlier this summer and they were outstanding....even my kids loved them. Glad to hear you're doing good in your neighbourhood!

Hi everyone,

I had quite a smoke yesterday, and it kind of turned into a party last night. We were just grabbing stuff off the smoker and slicing it up to taste...oh, and a few adult beverages were also enjoyed! I got a few pictures of the stuff coming out of the smoker, so here they are.

MMMMMMMmmmmm Ribs. It must have been the wild cherry smoke, but everything had a beautiful red mahogany smoke to to.

Here is the turkey...It is the only thing we didn't slice up and try. My neighbors swore they would let me know how it was. I also got orders for several thanksgiving birds last night. One of the wives was being a little shy about asking, until I told her that was how I was doing my thanksgiving bird...she is on board now!

Her is the makings of some great gravy. Load a pan up with carrots, celery, onion, a couple of apples, broth, Thyme, and sage, and put it under the bird. It catches awesome turkey drippings and smoke. Let it cool, defat if necessary, and into the blender. It is some of the best gravy or stock that you will ever use.

Here is the smoker on it's own trailer, making the neighborhood smell wonderful. This weekend I am shining it up and getting ready for paint. I might build a tailgate ramp too.

Here were the chicken quarters.

Pignit's gizzards were great! They do require some patience and time, but they turn into something that is really good snack food. All of the guys tore into them, but the wives all turned up their noses....more for us! (sorry, I didn't get a final pic)

All together a great second smoke on my new smoker. I told everyone that I will be doing at least one a week to get a feel for the big smoker, so plan your menu's. They all smiled! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
