Jim, Congrats on the WSM!!
IAHawk, as far as 0 to -10, I smoke year round in those outside temps on a WSM and offset in a Weber Kettle. The question is more a matter of fuel consumption, and wind blockage/insulation.
On my ECB, I used to have a little blanket that covered it.
For the WSM and...
And I'm recipe'ly challenged, as well as strapped for time with the kids and such, so out of the can works for me!!
Besides, Aurora has such a large mexican population that I have quite a few quality Super Mercado's to choose from.
Thanks for clarifying!
Maybe your scoring moved?
When doing briskets, I will take 3 toothpicks and insert them "with" the grain on the top.
Note that I use the Fat Cap Down ( <-Click Link ) method in my verticals, so when I say tooth picks "on top" that is the side I can see the grain.
Anyway, the raw meat has the...
How about Roe Cohn in the afternoon?
Congrats on winning!
LAst time I won anything I was in Sammy Hagar's Cabo Canteen on stage at the Chicago theater!
Mancow is unfortunately a product of Chicago radio.
A good use for a mess of peppers is a batch of pepper jelly.
The unopened jars keep for quite a while, and you can enjoy them all winter long.
Nothing like pepper jelly glaze on ribs!!
But to answer the letter of the question: I have cored and quatered, then frozen overnight, then throw the...
I will cook a couple each time I have room in the smoker, mixing up just regular Jimmy Deans Regular, Hot, Maple, Italian, and Sage.
Refridgerate, then cryovac seperately, clearly marking.
Leave them in the vacu bag sealed, and boil them to reheat them. Thawed then boiling is faster, but you...
How'd you swing that Jim?
I do both!!
Kids hate when I go out of town (not often). They start yelling "What are we going to do!!!??? We'll starve to death!!!"
They end up with takeout or something.
Every "New Years Resolution" a new diet comes along for the wife (usually in cookbook form...
You mentioned doing this contest previously.
What is the "2 rib contestant sampler" about?
Do you need to cook a certain # ribs available for public consumption?
It implies that, but I see Robinson's is the caterer. And I was laughing at the pictures from 2007, the one with the guy with no...
Yep, Allstate has been pretty good for us too. Had them for decades, going back through Dad's agent.
I've thought about switching the car portion of the insurance, but didn't want that little stack of bills with the bug eyes following me around watching me. That guy is creepy.
Shoot, I forgot to add mine upthread when I asked.
I was at 59th/Kedzie for 25 years on the South Side, now out Naperville/Aurora area.
I still live on the South Side, just due West 40 miles
Any chance you can share a good home recipe/technique for a Jibarito!!??!
Sure, but when running low on time and don't want to stuff, I will opt for the Jimmy Dean Spicy (or Bold or whatever). Pretty nice heat to it, and I can add more with a pepper dusting if it needs kick.
Onion cheese and pepponi is like a pizza fattie, which I know I read about here at some...
