Todays Ongoing Smoke-10 Pounds Red Japs,4Pound Rump Roast,Fresh Brocolli

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Picked 10 more pounds red ripe japs at noon











I like them very mature.The skin wrinkles and juices distribute into thick walls






Ready for 100 degree pecan smoke






Will be adding about 6 natural briquetts and a little of this pecan every hour









Air-aged this rump since wednesday.The water evaporating etc. creates a nice bark.In old days my grandfather would wrap this in dough and cook.Going to smoke mine at 250 degree with Olive Wood...













Grabbed a fresh Broccoli head from garden while picking japs


This pic was 14 days ago





Fresh cut












More to come.70 degree and beautiful on the Bay today.

You sure produce some great produce. Nice looking peppers and though I don't eat broccoli, it sure looks great.

Japs on-this is lid temp








Olive wood-the most aromatic light wood i have ever used!!!!!!









Roast-Slathered in peanut oil and plugged with garlic











Took 8 minutes to get my smoking/cooking temp.







Watching sisters dog LILLY while she is at a chile-cook off in Florida.She said it was 90 and humid in TAMPA this morning!!!!!






ROB-The birds seem to leave my garden area until it gets cooler.I will put bird feeders out in few weeks.No i have never had problem with birds eating on chiles and i grow a pequin which means bird chile.

Olive wood, i think you might be on to something. I need to try it. Broccoli looks great, and peppers look tasty. Can you say, "im jealous"

Hay, very nice smoke and peppers you have going on. I'm intrigued about your aged roast over olive wood. Where do you find olive wood chunks?

Excellent day for you, nice weather too! Good deal!

Had to take LILLY the dog home and grab some chives for potatoes.

2 hours of smoking at 250 degree.Little rump is done and has been resting last hour.








The temp on right is lid temp.My WSM runs 15 degree hotter at lid then top grate.








Slid the potatoes to middle and opened vents wide-potatoes finished in the 50 minutes i was gone-smell olive smokie





Lightly smoked red japs going in for 2 days at 120 degrees...This makes 30 pounds smoked/dehydrated.It equals 3 pounds powder!!!!!!! Prolly 20 more pounds to go.This stuff is like gold!!!








Old Friend from jr.high keeps his Blacksmithing forge at garden

P.S. nothing is galvanized LOL








Time to steam broccoli and asparagus and dinner should be at 7 p.m.



RIVET/JOHN the olive wood came from a orchard near buddy of mine in california.Drought did some of trees in.I am trying to get a bunch.Would love to turn you and couple people on to it.Just AMAZING aromatic wood-never used anything like it.....

Everything looks good but those peppers are going to be amazing, I'd bet. I love smoked peppers.

The finish of a productive day.Mowed the yard etc....Got the drapes washed and dried......



The aged rump was juicy as heck and had that olive sweetness/flavor.

Don't mind cutting board-left it in oven other day while pre-heating for a pizzaPDT_Armataz_01_05.gif






Bit of hack job on meat,but cut my thumb the other day....





The fresh broccoli melts like cotton candy.I also drizzle thin sliced garlic/butter on it....
