    Smoked Tri Tips

    So my brother in law has an annual chili cook off contest with the family & neighbors. Two years ago I won on a whim with a regular chili but it was crazy hot with habaneros. Last year I won with a smoked pulled pork chili with chipotle peppers. This year I wanted to try something different...

    Smoked Tri Tip and Wicked Baked Beans

    I've been wanting to try a smoked tri tip ever since I received Jeff's newsletter describing his smoke of this cut of meat.  I live in a somewhat rural part of North Carolina so I had a challenge finding someone who knew what a tri tip was, never mind finding someone who could order one for me. ...

    Pizza Fatty With Chicken Sausage

    So I was smoking my first pork butt yesterday (Q-view to follow in the Pork section) and thought while the WSM is chuging along at temp I may as well throw a fatty on. The Mrs. picked up a pound of sweet italian chicken sausage so we decided to use that. I combined the meat from the links and...

    Smoked Turkey Breast

    The Mrs. got me a boneless, skinless turkey breast, at least she thought it was a turkey breast. She got it from Wal-Mart and the wrapper said "Includes Dark Meat". Both of us were a bit confused by this but I'm sure you guys will pick out the dark meat in the pics. Guess it was a pressed...

    Temps too High in WSM - Can't Get Them Down

    Hey guys - I'm trying to do my first chuckie and I'm having problems getting the temp down in my WSM. I started with Cowboy Brand lump charcoal.
