First smoke in the GOSM

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I brought my new smoker to the campground for Independence Day cooking. Made ABTs, a chorizo fatty, potatoes, and a pork picnic for pulled pork.

I didn't like the pork, thought it was too dry, but others enjoyed it!

I'd planned to use some drippings, etc. for a finishing sauce, but no drippings, and I forgot other ingredients. It was about 9 lbs, fat side up, smoker mostly at 220-235, with hickory for about 8-10 hrs, all together about 15 hrs. No foiling. Squirted with an improvised juice that probably had too much sugar content. Removed at 197*, rested for an hour or so.

The picnic was the only thing I could get that wasn't "enhanced". I'll be getting a good butt soon so I can try again. 

The smoker did a great job holding a low temp, almost too low. smoker1.jpg

Looks very tasty, I will have to try out those peppers sometime.


Your ABT picture isn't working.

Everything looks fantastic!!! The ABT's look like they came out really well.  I really like the chorizo fatty idea. Do you care to share what was in it?


Cheers and great job with the Qview!!!

Thanks, all!

The fatty was chorizo/grass fed hamburger with mushrooms and onions. The cheese was cream cheese and shredded cheddar. Much easier than I expected. I softened the CC, then when I mixed in the cold cheddar, it just came together in a nice glob that I formed into a roll. Glad I used the lean grass-fed because that was some greasy cheap chorizo! I think the mild CC went well with the sausage, too.


I don't care for chorizo, but I was trying to get my husband to overlook the part about me buying a smoker. It worked! I think he'd be happy if all he got from it was the ABTs  

Just got a 9 lb butt, can't wait to smoke it this weekend!
