    First Cheese Smoke Q View with Salt and Peppers

    This is how I roll. Got my A-maze-n smoker 8 or 9 months ago. Got my Food Saver 7 months ago. First time using both: today. LOL @ myself.  I'm so lazy I make Homer Simpson look like Tony Robbins.  (actually, 9 months isn't half bad.  It took over three YEARS to get my smoker out of the box...

    Grilled Chicken Wings in the Land of The Free and The Home of The Brave

    I've got Wing Fever!  And the only treatment is MORE WINGS! I did a search of things to put on the wings and decide to try Bama's recipe.  Here are the main players, assembled just moments before show time That bottle says, "Laissez les bon temps rouler."  I guar-an-tee it! While those...

    Mikey's Smoked Chicken Noodle Soup

    Mark Twain never said, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco"  But it DOES get cold out here in Cali, even down here in the southern part of the state.  And when the June Gloom hits town, I make soup. This is my smoked chicken noodle soup. I started with some homemade...

    Spatchcock Chicken Jamaican Jerk Wings & The Sausages That Flew Too Close To The Sun

    This started out as a spatchcock chicken smoke, but last week while I was planning my menu, I read Scarbelly's Jamican Jerk Wings recipe and I said, man, that sounds good!  And since I never like to smoke without throwing a sausage or two in there, I got a Nathan's Beef and Pork Keilbasa. ...

    First Smoked Turkey, w/ Bratwurst & Cowboy Sausage

    Long time no Q view.  Great to be back! Smoked my first turkey today, and I did it spatchcock.  The day started out sort of rainy.  Didn't faze me, I fired up the firebox on the ol' Silver Smoker. I'm burning lump charcoal for heat and that's a hunk of almond wood for the thin blue smoke...

    You Know Where To Stick It, Turkey

    But I don't.   Directions always say, stick the probe in the thickest part of the thigh, taking care that the probe doesn't contact the bone. Sounds easy enough, but it seems like I always end up with the probe either hitting the bone and/or stuck in some area that gives me misleading...

    Estimated Cooking Time Spatchcock Turkeys Q?

    I'm smoking my first turkey today and decided to go spatchcock so I didn't have to worry about getting through the Danger Zone in 4 hrs.   It's just a 12 pounder, but I didn't want to take any chances, so I splayed her. Now, my question is, does spatchcocking a turkey make it cook way faster? ...

    Triple Smoked Chicken Noodle Soup 4U2View

    "Happy New Year, first of all, I hope we'll have a million or two million more of them..." I smoked some Big Fat Chicken Quarters and onions last weekend (and got my Q view featured in the Carousel!   ).  They looked like this when I finished: Here are the onions all chopped up and ready...

    Tax the Rich, Feed the Poor, 'Til There Are No Rich No More!

    Everywhere is freaks and hairys Dykes and fairies, tell me, where is sanity? Tax the rich, feed the poor, 'til there are no rich no more. Those lyrics, from the 1971 Ten Years After song, "I'd Love To Change the World." turn forty years old this year. Now, if you were around back in the day...

    My Big Fat Chicken Quarters Q View with Seasoned Onions

    On the way home from a nice huevos rancheros breakfast this morning at Pete's, my favorite local cafe, I decided atmospheric conditions were just perfect for a smoke.  I decided to do chicken quarters so I can use the skin and bones to make some smoked chicken stock tonight, and then some...

    Holly Jolly Christmas Fatties w Jingle Kielbasas

    Merry Christmas, Forum Friends! I fired up the smoker to do a couple fatties for the family Christmas Party at my brother in law's house.  I think he's doing ribs. I'm burning lump mesquite charcoal for heat, and almond wood for smoke.  Here's a firebox shot: Here are the fatty fixin's. ...

    Beans? Again?! You betcha! W/ Smoked Chicken 4U2 View!

    These are the Great Northern Beans after a soak: I think this much of this stuff would be a good idea: I like to take those inner celery stalks and leaves and chop them up finely to get maximum saturation: Now we have to get those carrot and celery cubes to go along with the little cup...

    Smoke Gets In Your Gravy (Warning: ZOMBIE Gravy View)

    I think the turkey gravy I made tonight was the best gravy I ever made.  Ever. And I think what made it so great was I used chicken stock that I made last week from smoked chicken skin and bones. The smoke came through the gravy and really added a fantastic flavor.  I can't wait to try this...

    Ain't Smokin' A Turkey Q View with Onions

    I'm travelling tomorrow, so I'll have to wait until Saturday to cook my turkey.  Had the day off today, though, and I smoked some chicken quarters, a beef keilbasa, some chicken-apple sausages and a few onions. Didn't decide to smoke until about 10 am this morning so there was no time to brine...

    Controversial Pork and Beans, Q View's second cousin, once removed

    After weeks and weeks of smoking every weekend, I've got a freezer full of flavor!   Smoked chicken, sausages, and more slices of fatties than you can shake a stick at! So, these days I'm working on eating up some of that bounty. Last time I smoked ribs I ended up with more than I could eat. ...

    Smoking with Wood on a Char Broil Silver Smoker

    When I first got my offset Char Broil Silver Smoker I really didn't know how to get the thin blue smoke.  In fact, I had no idea what thin blue smoke was, or why it was desireable.  To me, smoke was smoke.  Eventually, from information gleaned reading a ton of posts, I came up with a method that...

    Ribs That Took Longer Than Expected Not That There's Anything Wrong With That Q View

    (Note: I changed the name of this post, to accomodate an objection to the title Retarded Ribs Q View.  As I explicitly state below, the cooking process was retarded when the temperature in my smoker went south for an extended period of time.  I was able to correct for this and ended up with some...

    FORD (fatty optimization research and development) Fatty X2

    It wouldn't be much of an exageration to say I'm obsessed with fatties. I spend a lot of time thinking about them.  How to fill them, better ways to roll them, heating them and eating them.  I know the ingredients I like best, and I'm constantly trying to figure out how to get more of them in...

    Help w/ Spare Ribs Shelf Life Question, Please

    Can you help with a question? I bought a couple racks of spare ribs last Thursday.  They were sold as 'fresh, never frozen.' I intended on smoking them yesterday, but I wasn't able to. How long do ribs keep in the refrigerator?   There's no expiration or 'use by' date on the pkg label...

    Chicken QTR Q View, Big Fat Fatty (Updated!)

    I did a three hour soak in the slaughterhouse brine, then took the chill off these quarters before adding them to the smoker.  I didn't use any rub, just hit them with some freshly ground pepper. Purposely posed pre-peppered poultry photo: First peek, an hour into the smoke: Once I got...
