    Smoked Ribeye - A Little differently

    Today I tried something different. At Christmas I got an Annova water immersion Sous Vide cooker. Having read that 4 hours in the water bath @ 130 degrees gives a fantastically juicy and tender steak, I tried it on several thick cut New York Strips, and the wife now wants it that way all the...

    Bacon Cure containing White Pepper?

    Going to do my first bacon this weekend. Bought a nice looking 8 pound belly from Costco, and by the calculator will require 9.27 grams of #1, 65.6 grams of Salt and 37.2 grams of Sugar.  I plan on curing for 10 days, then cold smoking using Washington Apple overnight (12-15 hours), then give...

    First Brisket Sucess - but question if its worth it

    So I did my first brisket ever last weekend, and it turned out awesome. My question is - is it really worth doing a small brisket, or did I get a bad cut of meat? Wanted to try brisket, and searched the local supply houses for one. Smart & Final only had a huge 24 pounder, and I didn't want to...

    First Pulled Pork on the New Daniel Boone

    After a successful turkey for thanksgiving I decided to do a few pork butts on the new GMG Daniel Boone. Brined the pork in Apple Cider, salt, brown sugar and assorted spices for three days in the fridge. Rubbed really good with Jeff's rub, then put the butts on at 6 am @ 250*, and they reached...

    Baby Backs in the RV park today...

    Picked up two racks of baby backs for todays smoke - fired up the Green Mountain Davey Crockett with Pecan pellets. Did two hours smoke, then 1 1/2 hours foiled with apple cider, now finishing out. 1/2 hour or 45 minutes. Love this smoker for the RV...

    Paprika Smoke

    Last spring I planted the only three Buldog Paprika plants I could get to sprout from the 3 packs of seed I ordered. I harvested this week, and today I halved and smoked the peppers. The nice thing is I was able to recover quite a lot of seed from these, so next year I can really plant out a...

    Its Tuna Season Here!!

    Here in San Diego we are entering the best time of the year - fishing is starting to go off, and right now the tuna are starting to show in numbers. Recently a buddy came back from a multi day trip and spread the wealth, so naturally I got the smoker ready. For this smoke I have a new secret...

    Last cheese smoke of the summer...

    Taking advantage of some really cool marine layer that has rolled in on us here in San Diego. It will be too warm for cheese here on out until the end of September or into October (not that you can really call it hot here in coastal San Diego, but its warm enough the cheese sweats too much)...

    July 4th Stuffed Elk Burgers

    Thawed out some ground elk a buddy gave me from his successful hunt last fall and decided to use my new Lowes stuffed burger maker. Seasoned the elk with just salt & pepper and for good measure mixed in a teaspoon of Jeff's rub. Formed it in the press and stuffed it with my smoked pepperjack...

    Jeffs Pork Chops

    The wife and I stopped by the good butcher yesterday, and I mentioned Jeff's email about brining and smoking thick cut pork chops. The wife immediately ordered up two nice center cut chops that were a good inch and a half thick. I followed Jeff's recipe exactly - half gallon apple cider with a...

    Baja Margarita smoked chicken - with Qview

    This is an idea I've been kicking around for awhile, so with the wife working late tonight I had nothing to loose if it didn't turn out, but boy did it. I've been wanting to use the ingredients for a true Baja margarita (as opposed to the gringo crap) and made into a poultry brine. I learned how...

    Got my New Vacmaster 130!

    Used the coupon code to order the Vacmaster 130 and a 50/50 selection of pint/quart bags. To celebrate it's arrival on Saturday I smoked 5 pounds each Cheddar and Pepper Jack, but to my dismay found the Vac sealer not working out of the box - not pulling a vacuum . An email from Lisa suggested I...

    Question on Aging Smoked Cheese

    I see every post here vacuum sealing their finished cheese to age for 2-3 weeks, but I don't own a vacuum sealer. Is there some other method I can use to wrap my smoked cheese for aging? I saw the thread about waxing, but not sure where to obtain the correct wax for that... I'll be picking up a...

    New to the site

    I built this smoker some 20 years ago out of a stainless electrical enclosure that was about to be dumped in the dumpster. I pointed the fork lift driver to the bed of my truck, and after a little welding and scrounging came up with a nice all stainless rig that should easily outlast me. It...
