    It’s not easy finding a Huey, good job. That is a very nice tribute to your father.

    Cabinet Style Cleaning Idea

    Yea, I know about that. That could be the weak point in this hare-brained idea. Like Musk, I'll just build a better rocket next time.

    Cabinet Style Cleaning Idea

    I like to cook for friends. As such, I am very careful to keep everything clean. I would guess that the renderings and sugars from brine solutions probably make a good breeding ground for bad things. I would bet, the salts used in brines, are probably the culprit to the bottoms rusting out in...

    Cabinet Style Cleaning Idea

    It's kind of a silly idea. I finished cutting in a butterfly vent in the side of my cabinet and was cleaning out the metal chips when I thought of it. The inside is hard to clean and a pain. So I lined it with aluminum foil, and held the foil in place with small button magnets. Since the cabinet...

    Cheese and Salmon

    Yea, the World Series! Thanks! Mrs. Smoke says this is the best smoked cheese and salmon she has ever had. We have eaten a lot of smoked salmon so I’m pretty happy. I cold smoked the cheese for three hours, using a tray and apple pellets.

    Cheese and Salmon

    This is my first try smoking cheese, and second smoking salmon. The cheese is seven days old. I did sharp cheddar, pepper jack, and cheddar jack. This was a test to see how it is doing, plus the first taste. It is really great. It will benefit from additional aging and be fantastic. The salmon...

    First Cheese

    Inexperienced yes. Patient, yes. Stupid, no. Your comment in not appreciated nor warrented. I do listen to people with more experience, and it has served me well for many years. Saved my life more than a few times. I do know that everything I smoke, tastes better as time passes. I'll run with...

    First Cheese

    Thanks! I am using Todd’s pellets and am very pleased with them. I will look into his dust as well.

    First Cheese

    I would like to try dust in my tray on the next batch. Did you make it in a blender? What pellets are you finding to work well?

    First Cheese

    The weather cooled down so I made my first attempt at cold smoking cheese. I put in some Tillamook sharp cheddar, colby jack, and pepper jack. I smoked it at 65 degrees for three hours over apple. My latest modification to the smoker has resulted in great smoke control and air movement in the...

    BBQ and Old Friends

    Thank for the nice comments! I learned a lot. More went right than wrong. Everything was ready and warm, and on the table at the same time. I had everyone distanced and safe. I did the serving with my mask on. I nailed the sauce, and the second try on the smoked beans was the best I’ve had...

    BBQ and Old Friends

    On likely our last dry day of the year, I invited three old friends over for a socially distant dinner on the patio. The menu included babyback, ham, chicken, and a last minute test of brats on the smoker. There is nothing that causes you to learn and fix mistakes faster than when you have...

    Double Smoked Ham - Stalled Temp

    Thanks! I am using Jeff's recipe for Rum ham. Some of the rum mixture is injected into the ham. Not a lot since it is only a three pound half-ham. The rest is used as a glaze. Again, there is no taste of alcohol, just a nice rum flavor. It really is a good recipe. I just have to figure out the...

    What has happened to Masterbuilt

    Great advise. I was following this path until I found a sale for about the same price as used. Usually in the fall. There are a lot of barely used models for sale. I bet during the winter you can negotiate a good price on some good equipment. Doing a good smoke is more effort than many buyers...

    Double Smoked Ham - Stalled Temp

    We could taste the hint of rum, but not the alcohol. The ham was very good. If you are using a recipe with alcohol, what compensation needs to be made during the smoke?
