Yep, that's right. This Virginia boy is up in Chillicothe, Ohio smoking some babybacks.
A good friend of mine bought a smoker a while back and has not been able to perfect his cooks yet. I agreed to come up an help him prepare the perfect tender ribs!
Trevor and I showed my friend the 2-2-1...
Got a 14 pounder for dinner tonight at 4:00.
Just getting started.
Steph bought a pre injected bird so no brine or other injection. I admit I'm a little nervous that this one wont turn out as good as last year....
Sorry...I tried posting from my phone and all I got was the freakin URLs...
Good morning fellow meat smoking enthusiasts!
Most of you are familiar with my youngest son, Trevor. The JV volleyball team is having their banquet tomorrow and I was asked if I could provide the BBQ...well, far be it from me to deny such a request....gives me a reason to smoke some meat...
It's been about three months or more since I have been able to do any smoking because of the demands of my new job.
Today I am working from home and simultaneously smoking two 7lb pork butts.
I will document my progress throughout the day, I hope that you stick with me while I...
If you have never eaten a reverse seared pork chop you just don't know what you are missing!!!!
Anyone who reads my posts knows that my youngest son Trevor and I like to smoke/bbq together frequently. This was our first opportunity since I started the new job in April.
We decided to do a...
I feel real bad that I haven't been posting much lately! I started a new job that keeps me traveling a lot and unfortunately I have not had time to do any smoking but we did make it out to a car show on the Disney property!
Here are a few of the pics...
Nice crome job!
I felt so bad about the measly Q-View I posted earlier today that I defrosted a couple of tenderloin steaks for a reverse sear this evening!
I hope you enjoy!
I started out by sprinkling a little Lowry's on the steak then putting some Pitmaster's choice dust in the AMNS and...
Imagine my surprise when I logged onto the SMF this morning to post yesterday's smoke to find out I had been inducted into the OTBS! WOW, what an honor to be part of that organization of great smokers, I am truly humbled and honored.
Anyway, I smoked three racks of loin backs yesterday and...
Good morning SMF!
Well, Trevor and I got up at 0500 to get things going this morning to start his first pork butt smoke!
Last night we mixed up the rub and rubbed two 7 pound pork butts.
We fired up the smoker and for some reason we are getting more heavy white smoke than I have ever seen...
I saw this on the news and spit coffee all over myself!
I know this is a joke but bacon heads will want these product!!! LOL
Bacon flavored Diet Coke!
And...Bacon flavored mouthwash!!!!
Let's hear it for the PIG!!! Whoot-Whoot er...OINK-OINK
It was an absolutely beautiful day in Central/Southern Virginia today - so naturally I wanted to get the grill out!
While Steph went shopping with her buddy, Trevor and I headed to the meat market and picked up about $40.00 worth of Tenderloin beef steaks...the thickest we could find - about 3"...
I bought two racks of loin back ribs yesterday for today's smoke!
Got up and started getting things ready...rubbed the ribs and in the fridge last night.
Trevor gets up and says he wants them the way I fixed them one time last summer with the brown sugar and honey -
I refuse to use the T-word...
My wife is going out of town with her mom for the weekend so it's just me, Trevor, and the smokers....what to do, what to do.
Thought I would feed my father-in-law and the wife's great uncle. I originally planned ribs but got started too late. So while in the market I found this wisp of a...
Okay folks....it's official!!!!
PGSmoker's BDSE sauce is a full 45% - 90 proof!!!!
Just kidding....the alcohol burns off during the cook leaving only the great flavor of Makers Mark whiskey!
However, Makers Mark listened to its loyal customers.
That's right...Dot Dogs - so named by a close friends daughter when she was about 3 years old, it just kinda stuck.
So, nothing new but still darn good eating!!!
You can't tell from the pic but these are spiral sliced and dusted with my favorite BBQ rub.
Into the MES 30 with a couple...
I forget where I got this recipe but I've been making this stuff for years!
It sounds weird but it is absolutely awesome. I have always cooked it in the oven but this time...the MES30 got the pleasure!
I used a mixture of peach and hickory dust in my AMNS, and only smoked for an...
I had to go to the store this mornin' for lemons to put in a few batches of my BDSE sauce so I strolled through the meat department.
I found something called a turkey breast tenderloin! Sounded good so I bought one...
I thought "wow, that was a pretty big turkey...then I opened the package...
Good morning everyone!
Last Saturday I smoked a pork butt in my MES30 and came out with 5 pounds of delicious pulled pork! In that thread I promised that today that pulled pork would be the star in several other dishes - chili, pizza, and sliders.
Well, we ate one pound through the course of...
Earlier today I mentioned posting my recipe for taco soup and I don't want to let anyone down, so here it is.
You will not believe how simple this is. Here we go.
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 package of Taco seasoning
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 15 oz...
