    Smoked pumpkin seeds (an experiment)

    We carved the pumpkins the other night, and I always save teh seeds to roast.  This is the first year since I built my mini WSM so I decided to try smoking them.

    Fritz's mini WSM build

    Last weekend I smoked a pork loin.  It was really tasty.  I used the recipe in Jeff's book for a butt.  I smeared it with mustard and coated it with Big Bald BBQ rub.  Here's the before and after.

    Fritz's mini WSM build

    I had issues keeping the temperatures down.  It kept going up to 225 or higher.  I added some snow to the water pan and was able to keep the temperatures down to 190-ish.

    Fritz's mini WSM build

    I made a batch of spicy smoked pretzels.  These are really tasty, but the cayenne builds up.
