    Sausage linking help

    That technique would work great for me, as I'll be putting up my sausage in 1-lb rings. Now to figure out how long = 1 lb, and hope that spinning them doesn't cause them to burst.

    Questions for WSM owners

    If you are using a WSM 22, the door is plenty big enough to do some meat manipulation. I've found 2 things that make it easier. First of all, when I am cooking something in a foil pan, I find that to use a full sized pan I have to fold the corners in a bit so that the sides are vertical in...

    Who Is This Fellar?

    I remember Bob's Big Boy restaurants in SoCal nearly 45 years ago. I wouldn't hesitate to put him up at my place. I also wouldn't mind one of the original Jack inthe Box Drive-thru clowns...

    Rudys BBQ Review W/Qview

    If only I could take you back... Twenty-five or more years ago, there was a little corner place called the Leon Springs Cafe. They had great food of many kinds, a great old atmosphere (used to be the grandpa's gas station), and live music several nights a week. As a matter of fact, many...

    Making burgers.. How??

    This is very similar to what I do. You have to be mindful not to mix the beef up too much while you are incorporating the spices, as the more you squeeze it and mix it, the tougher the end result will be. If I have the time, I also smoke the burgers until they start to pick up a red color...

    Rudys BBQ Review W/Qview

    I have to agree. Ever since I started getting serious about making good Q, I have yet to find a 'raunt anywhere that I prefer. Cooper's in Llano comes the closest. Rudy's has never been a favorite of mine, but I'll give you one thing - they have the best creamed corn on the PLANET.
