    Had a couple of small beef round tips and also wanted to try out Bear's unstuffed beef sticks (great step by step by the way).   Here are a few pics of the process:

    Five pounds of 80/20 mixed up with Bear's cure mixture (I did add extra cayenne):

    Rolled into sticks, wrapped and back in the fridge for a day (I think I made these a littler shorter than Bear's original version):

    Sticks were cold smoked 2 hours with the AMNTS and hickory pellets.  Then fired until all sticks were 165 IT.  Off the smoker, dunked in ice water, then rinsed in warm water and dried.   These are delicious!  Will be packaged later today:

    Quick view of ABTs.  Smoked the jalapenos for an hour, than stuffed with bacon, cream cheese, pepper jack, italian blend, parm, seasoned salt, garlic, and onion powder.  We also smoked all of the seeds separately for some future spice.

    On the the round tips, simple rub with EVOO and SPG:

    Quick hickory smoke, pulled at IT 135:

    Double wrapped in foil for one hour, then fridge for one hour, then freezer for one hour to assist with slicing:

    Quick fry in butter, garlic, mushrooms, and onion.  Melted provolone over for a sammie dinner:

    Thanks for checking it out.  Currently have a Chuckie at 165 for today [​IMG]

    Looks like you've been busy! Great looking Sammie! Chuckie doesn't sound to bad either!
