    Thoughts on best wood for smoking?

    I get my chip mix from work. They give it to me in 55 gallon drums. I found it to be the best all around mix for everything. Oak, Hickory and Mesquite. Mixed at 70/20/10. I use it on all my cuts and all my meat. No muss and fuss trying to figure out what goes with what meat. Kinda makes it...

    I've been using a Wood Burner, a deep coffee mug and an old beer cooler. Works real good. I just smoked 4 lbs yesterday with apple wood.

    Where do you buy your wood?

    I work in a Research Center for a large Paper Company. I get all of my wood chips free. Then I mix them 70 % Oak, 20% Mesquite and 10% Hickory and deliver to my Smokehouse in 55 gallon Plastic Drums. I haven't found a better mix yet. Goes great with everything

    Dill pickles are too soft,,,why?

    You need Tannin (Keeps the pickles super crisp) Now the easiest form of Tannin (without buying it) is Grape leaves. When I can pickles I go down to my Aunts and she has a Grape Harvard and gives me all the leaves I want. Usually the grapes are almost done anyway by canning season around here...

    Turkey day fiasco made me a total brining believer

    Glad the Baby is doing well. Been Brining Turkeys for 20 years. Turkey is a bland meat. Brining them makes them juicy and taste magnifique. If you never brined one you never truely tasted Turkey

    Oxidation on pots, pans, etc

    Bleach ( Sodium Hypochlorite ) Is the only chemical that will pit Stainless Steel. Believe it or not it will rust Stainless Steel. I ran a milk processing machine once for a while and Bleach was not allowed in the lab as a cleaner on Stainless. Most dishwashing detergents contain Sodium Silacate...

    How did you come up with your screen name?

    My given name in Tsalgi ( Cherokee ) Means (Man of the Earth). My Brother in Law hung me with RC in 1970 and it just took. My Mother called me that until the day she passed. Because I cooked so good and all the time, They called me Chef- Boy -RC. I shortened it to Chefrc
