    Meat-a-Palooza

    What is the benefit of leaving off the mustard, besides just saving it? I always put on mustard to help the rub stick. Luckily I did just smile at my wife, and made her manhattan with a heavy handed pour of whiskey!

    Paint Peeling on Rec-Tec

    I love my Rec-Tec, but have had a lot of paint peeling issues after a grease fire several months ago. Anyone else have problems with paint peeling issues? I've been told Rec-Tec will send me some high heat paint for free, but haven't had time for this project yet. This is a project I'm not...

    Help with chuck roast cross rib

    If you're going to slice it, definitely do not go as high as 209. You'd only go that high if you want to shred it. If you like medium rare, take it off when it gets to 125 and let it rest for awhile before you slice it.

    Meat-a-Palooza

    I wanted to smoke a standing rib roast for New Years Eve dinner, so I went to Costco a few days earlier and accidentally brought home a lot more meat than that. Since I was taking some time off from work for the holidays, I decided to spend a couple of days smoking a lot of the meat to freeze...

    St. Louis Pork Ribs

    Looks great! I've done 3-2-1 for a long time, but I'm going to switch to a straight smoke. I like more of a bite too. I'm also of the opinion ribs are way better the next day.

    Your Opinion is Needed!

    I made the upgrade a few years ago from an MES-30 to a Rec-Tec. I chose Rec-Tec due to the ceramic igniter and the long warranty. I couldn't be happier with it. Most people seem to recommend whichever brand they're most loyal to. Everyone has their opinions on which features are most important...

    Thank you SonnyE. I'll check out the Presto. I'll also see if I can find a range cow somewhere :).

    Shoe Leather Jerky

    Looks like I'll have to look into getting a dehydrator.

    Shoe Leather Jerky

    The butcher shop in my home town makes my favorite jerky. I am eating some as I type this and I want to figure out how to get close myself. It's sliced thin and makes me feel like I'm chewing on an old piece of shoe leather. I like jerky that gives me something to chew on for awhile. I've made...

    Sunday Wings 2 Ways

    Yes it is! It's made near where I grew up. I didn't know anyone in WA knew about Pepper Plant Sauce.

    Sunday Wings 2 Ways

    I was a bit pressed for time today. My oven got to 400 faster than it would have taken to bring my pellet grill up to temp.

    Sunday Wings 2 Ways

    I never really had the desire to smoke wings, I heard the skin turns out too rubbery, but after seeing this post on smoking-meat.com I decided to give it a go. I didn't follow the recipe exactly (didn't have time to brine), but it pointed me in the right direction to make some really good wings...

    Pork for Work BBQ

    I am going to be smoking some pulled pork for a bbq at work this Friday. I'm not sure of the best way to serve it hot. Should I cook it ahead of time and re-heat it in a slow-cooker, or should I try and time it so that I take it to work while it's still hot from the smoker? I know I can always...

    What pellets do you buy?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I think I'm gonna give 100% hickory Lumberjack pellets a try.

    What pellets do you buy?

    How do you store pellets that aren't in the hopper?

    What pellets do you buy?

    I know this topic has been covered before, but oh well... Pellet grill owners, what kind of pellets do you buy? Do you notice any real difference between specific wood types or blends? Where have you found the best deals? I've had my Rec Tec for about 3 months and have only tried 2 different...

    Chuck Roast Burnt Ends

    They were so easy and were great leftover. I wish I had made more.

    Chuck Roast Burnt Ends

    Finally had a free weekend for a smoke, so I tried Jeff's Smoked Chuck Roast Burnt Ends on my Rec Tec RT680. They were amazing! My wife is already asking when I can make them again. I only smoked 1 chuck roast and I used Sweet Baby Rays as the sauce, other than that I followed Jeff's recipe...
