Bearcarver I have attempted making bacon from scratch several times and do not get extra smokiness that you refer too. I have followed your instructions to a tee and use an amns sawdust smoker in my electric smokin-tex smoker would smoking for a second day help I even put belly on racks to dry under fan for 2-3 hrs. to form pellicle.?????
I'm looking for bone-in prime rib advice for a 10-person dinner. Should I get a few smaller roasts or try to find one large one? Pretty sure everyone likes medium temp and I'm not sure how a massive roast could all temp out evenly.
Hi Bear, made an account just to get your thoughts on this: I just bought a Gen #1 MES 40 for $378, but I'm wondering if I should get the MES 240G instead (~$368) or even wait for the MES 400? I'm not sure, and the Gen1 arrives in 2 days but I'm fine returning it and getting a 240G instead if that's the better option.
Hi Bear, I am following your posts. They are great. I am a newbie.I just bought a 12" oval Amazin Smoker tube. I just read that you do not recommend it for cherry sawdust. What smallish smoker tray should I get? Also...what cherry sawdust do you buy? I use the smoken it #1. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Love your Dried Beef recipe. Cold smoked on Saturday for 12 hours, took it to temp Sunday, sliced Monday, took some and shared it at work today, vacuum sealed tonight. just finished a sandwich with kosher dills.... This was my second batch.
Bearcarver, I followed your step by step jerky recipe. After rinsing and patting dry slices, I followed very close to times and temps (Slight variance) your had posted. When dried, it seems like I lost all the flavor. The brine should have penetrated the meat after 22 hrs, but did I just end up washing all the flavor off? Kinda confused... Love the ingredients used!
