    Found a Free DuKane Grill!

    Not to get to far afield from smoking meat, but a good grill is nice to have too. I was on mt way home yesterday and a neighbor was loading some bug things at the end of his driveway for the trash service to pick up. I noticed he had a two burner DuKane Grill next to the trash and he was looking...

I had to do some pickled eggs after seeing his post, this is what I came up with based on my past experience with pickling egg in the Pacific Northwest style, this time winging it...

    Left Handed Brisket?

    Somebody tell me again if its the left handed or right handed brisket that's more tender, and how you determine which is which. Remember this was the story about which leg a cow pits it's weight on when it gets up off the ground. I can't remember which it was and with the thick side of the...

    Broken Food Saver!

    Well hell, I was going to package up some bacon last night and found out my wife had dropped my food Saver and knocked off the gate. I fixed that easily but them found the heater element wouldn't heat enough to seal the bags any more! I bought this unit 13 years ago for $139 at Costco in Oregon...

    Fired it Up!

    I finally got my hands on this iron monstrosity! These photos were taken before I cleaned it up. Some unknown oil field pipe fitter welded this thing up some 15 odd years ago and it had been sitting in a friend's sister's yard for the last ten years unused. Free was a good price but hauling...

    Homemade Smoked Lunch Meat?

    I haven't seen Deejay Debbie around for a while (where the hell is she anyway) but she was doing great things with lunch meat a while back. She had some fancy caseins she used that I don't have, I was thinking of the netting / sockenett concept and just wondered if those Costco boneless skinless...

    New Posts

    I have a question. I like to look at the site from my desk here at work, time permitting. When I first sign on I see several pages of new posts to look at. But if I leave the site and open it again later I only get a few new posts that were submitted in the interim. If I go to the search engine...

    Hanging Bacon

    This is a question for all the rest of you bacon makers. What is your preferred way to hang bacon for smoking? When I'm making "Butt Bacon", AKA "Buckboard Bacon" I've usually just set it on the racks. For "Belly Bacon" I've done the same when it was in small chunks, or hung it using a big...

    Dry Box Cured Bacon With Q View!

    I went by my local Carneacia on Saturday and asked in my broken Spanish if they had any pork bellies. They use them to make cicerones or “pork rinds†to you Yankees and “cracklins†to you Southern boys. If youâ€8482ve never had hot fresh Mexican fried pork fat with hot sauce, youâ€8482re...

    Free Smoker!

    Burnt Ends

    Hay Y'all, I've been smoking briskets for a while now and I'm way fond of Smokey Okie's method of searing. But in many post here I keep reading about "BURNT ENDS" but no mention that I can find as to exactly what they are. I'm sort of assuming its the thin fatty ends, cut off, maybe rubbed and...

    Remote Probe for Smoker Temp?

    I have several of these Oregon Scientific remote temp probes and I want to use two, one for the meat and one for the smoker temp. Can I just hang the probe in the smoker or should I stuff it in a spud or something? Also as I haven't taken more than one of them out of the package I hope they are...

    Hanging tenders, Rib Lifters?

    Many moons ago when I was in flight school in Moses Lake Washington I used to frequent a local butcher who would sell me a cut called a "hanging tender". He told me it was the hunk of cow that the hook went through when the half was hanging in the cold room. It had some pretty thick chord to it...

    HELP! A 22 Pound Turkey!!

    So my wife relented and asked me to smoke the turkey for this Thanksgiving! I thought a cured brined bird would be the way to go but I hadn't even looked at what she had brought home until last night. I was thinking something in the range of 12 pounds would be about right. But she had gone...
