    Reverse Searing Steaks

    I never owned a cast iron skillet but read that steaks seared in a cast iron skillet are good. Local store had Lodge 12" skillets on sale so I picked one up today. Looking for some cooking temps and time. I am thinking of smoking at 225 until until an internal temp of 110. Pull the steaks off...

    Sweat Breads recipe

    I haven't had any in decades and finally found a place online that sells them. I got a pound in the freezer that I am dying to try. As I remember we just cut them up, flopped them in flour, and in to a frying pan they went. Does anyone have any sweat breads recipes?

    Knife question(s)

    Dexter Russel makes very good knives at reasonable prices. I have a couple with high carbon steel blades. These blades hold an edge well but will rust easily. I have a couple of Tojiro knives with VG-10 blades that are rust resistant and hold an edge very well.

    What's a Picanhas and what's better about it.

    Compared to other cuts of beef what is it like? Is it to be smoked and foiled? Slow smoked or grilled?

    I could grill it or smoke it. I have a preference for smoked meats.

    What's a Picanhas and what's better about it.

    I have read good things about Pichanhas but never tried it. I found a place I can buy it. Just wondering if it's worth trying.

    Smoking in the winter cold, wind, rain, and wind

    I took some pics of the roast at the start of the smoke. 225 degrees with the gravity hopper full of B & B Char-Logs and a 3" x 3" Cherry chunk every 5" in the gravity hopper. Roast rubbed with kosher salt and black pepper. Preheating the smoker: Rubbed with Kosher salt and black pepper...

    Smoking in the winter cold, wind, rain, and wind

    I kind of do this a lot. Doing it tomorrow. Midwest flat croplands here with high winds. A beef rib roast I bought on sale during the holidays that I am smoking tomorrow with 3-5" snow and windy. It's not that big a deal for me. No weld blankets. No wind shelter. I will have to adjust the temps...

    MB Fire Starters

    I have tried Royal Oak Fire Starter squares, Tumbleweeds, and Fatwood in my 560. I like the Fatwood the best of these three.

    Ribs (Attempt #6)

    Now you are making me hungry! The first thing I attempted was ribs and I got frustrated also. I smoke many different things now but my ribs are our favorite. Although I have been using the same method and recipe for years I'm always tweaking my rib recipe a little bit.
