  1. Fatty Rolling By Silverwolf636

    I've been asked for info on how I roll my fattys. Well here goes.

    1. You get yourself a one gallon zip-lock baggy and a 1-lb sausage chub. Put the chub in the baggy.
    2. Either use you hand or use a rolling pin and spread the chub around in the baggy.
    3. This is what it should look like after you smoosh it around in the baggy, square and even.
    4. Now cut the bag around the edges with either scissors or a sharp knife.
    5. Remove the top piece of baggy and discard.
    6. Layout a piece of wax...
  2. Geeks Basic Brisket

    I haven't contributed much in a long time, so here's a recent post I wrote for my web site:

    Brisket is one of those cuts of meat that tends to scare smokers away from trying it.  For one thing, it's expensive.  For another, we've all had someone else's bad brisket.  It's like eating shoe leather.  Brisket is actually two muscled connected by a thick layer of fat.  The larger of the muscles is called the flat, which is the leaner of the two.  The other muscle is called the point and contains...
  3. The Spitjack Magnum Meat Injector Gun

    Customer Service:

    I felt a need to brings some impressive info to all of you about this company.  I screwed up and cross threaded the keeper ring that holds the barrel to the gun assembly.  The result was that if significant pressure was used to push a heavy injection into meat the barrel would come disingaged from the rest of the unit.  I sent it in and explained the problem asking SpitJack to repair it and call me for payment.  8 days later a new unit was setting on my front porch with no...
  4. Shooter Ricks Perfect Peach Comfort Sauce

    I was thinking today about a change of pace with my sauces and came up with something a bit different inspired by the wonderful contrast in food flavors I have found here in the deep south. The play of sweet and savory down here is amazing. I hope this recipe does it justice.

  5. Shooter Ricks Copper Head Snake Bite Sauce

    While I make 3 types of sauces this is the favorite of many. If you try it you will find that the sweet ingrediants are subtle and the tangy vinagar and spices have the lead roll. It has a substantial kick when dipping but tames down a bit if used to baste. I also make a sweet and sassy and a Premium Venum Blend of the two, for those that can't make up there mind.

  9. Dutchs Smoked Pork Loin With Mahogany Sauce

    A couple of weeks ago I tried my hand at smoking a 9 pound pork loin. Here is what I did.

    Cut loin in half so that you have 2 roasts approximately 4 - 4 1/2 pound each.
    Coat each roast with prepared yellow mustard and apply your favorite Pork Rub. Allow roast to sit for 20-30 minutes to allow the mustard/rub to dry. In the meantime fire up the smoker.
    Place the roasts in the smoker and smoke for 2 1/2 - 3 hours until meat thermometer reaches 145 degrees F.

    In the meantime make the Mahogany...
