    What did I do wrong?

    Temps are pretty important on overnight smokes like pulled pork and brisket. Doing this with out relying on a good thermometer would make this an even harder chore. Saying your butt reached an internal temp of 165 degrees in 6 hours is an indication of a bad thermometer. Even ribs are a close...

    Ribs with BBQ sauce question

    A really good rub can make the ribs good enough to eat without sauce. And I do this always. My rub recipe is that good. Sauce is there for dipping after the ribs are done. I never sauce my ribs in the smoker.

    Finding charcaol

    I started out with a gas grill, Then an electric smoker, and now a Materbuilt Gravity series charcoal. I like charcoal smokers. I can find propane everywhere. Electric is electric. Pellet are everywhere. Charcoal (B & B) is very difficult to find.

    Vacuum sealing and freezing pulled pork

    Reverse Searing Steaks

    I never owned a cast iron skillet but read that steaks seared in a cast iron skillet are good. Local store had Lodge 12" skillets on sale so I picked one up today. Looking for some cooking temps and time. I am thinking of smoking at 225 until until an internal temp of 110. Pull the steaks off...

    Sweat Breads recipe

    I haven't had any in decades and finally found a place online that sells them. I got a pound in the freezer that I am dying to try. As I remember we just cut them up, flopped them in flour, and in to a frying pan they went. Does anyone have any sweat breads recipes?

    Knife question(s)

    Dexter Russel makes very good knives at reasonable prices. I have a couple with high carbon steel blades. These blades hold an edge well but will rust easily. I have a couple of Tojiro knives with VG-10 blades that are rust resistant and hold an edge very well.

    What's a Picanhas and what's better about it.

    Compared to other cuts of beef what is it like? Is it to be smoked and foiled? Slow smoked or grilled?
