    Buc-ees Butt

    Ahhh ok. Didn’t know that. I normally just use my own rub but figured I would start using up some of these commercial rubs that people give me.

    Buc-ees Butt

    Vernor’s is pretty unique. My wife swears by it when she’s got an upset stomach.

    Buc-ees Butt

    Vernor’s is a very “Michigan” thing. It’s a type of ginger ale. It’s great in a Boston cooler and worked well in this sauce, but I don’t usually drink it (I don’t drink soda much).

    I Made a "daveomak" Ham Using a Picnic Shoulder, a Loin, & a Boneless Butt.

    Would you be willing to share that handy spreadsheet?

    Buc-ees Butt

    My buddy in Texas sent me some Buc-ees BBQ rub to try so I slathered a butt with mustard and rubbed it up I smoked it over maple wood at 255 until IT was 170, then foiled it and added some Vernor’s for that Michigan twist. Made a finishing sauce out of the juices, Vernor’s and mustard All...

    Wow, that’s really high! I don’t think I’d be going for it at that price either.

    Heritage bacon

    Have you checked the local farmers market? Even if they don’t sell it there, there farmers usually all know each other and know who has what.

    Hearty Maple Breakfast Sausage

    Putting a little kick in it would be great! Though I don’t think my missus and little one would approve. Maybe next time I’ll make two batches...

    Hearty Maple Breakfast Sausage

    Just got a hog processed and I needed to clear out some pork from the freezer, so I decided to make breakfast sausage. I still had some maple syrup left over from bacon making, so I used that to give it some sweetness. The seasonings laid out for 10lbs of sausage: 1 c Grade B maple syrup...

    Heritage bacon

    Stubbs, it’s actually maple sugar. It looks like brown sugar, but instead of being from cane, it’s made from maple sap. It has a super strong maple flavor instead of just being sweet/caramelly like brown sugar. If you can’t get it around your area, I think Butcher Packer sells it. It’s awesome...

    Heritage bacon

    Since moving, I’ve now gotten regular access to awesome pork from heritage breeds raised on the farms around me. I got this particular pork from Mastodon Farms and it is head and shoulders above the sidepork I used to get from the supermarket. I hadn’t made bacon in a couple years but when I got...

    Return of the brisket

    Haven’t been around much for the last couple of years but decided to start smoking more and posting again. Here’s me getting my toes back in the water. 14.5lb packer with my rub on it. Ended up separating the point and flat to make it fit in the smoker a bit better. After 10 hours over...

    Machacado con huevos
