    whey protein isolate vs soy

    Hey Sausage experts...I'm looking at making Len Poli's Hotdog recipe. It calls for Whey Protein Isolate. Is that the same thing as the soy protein concentrate? These additives/binders have me all confused. I've never made emulsified sausages before but I want to try it out. Thanks!

    Sous vide Fried chicken

    Sure doesn't look very appetizing right outta the bath. 160/2.5ish. Meant to do 155 for 3, but got busy and forgot to start them. First time ever cooking fried chicken. They were delicious. Super tender and moist. The wife loved it. Flour seasoned with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black...

    Elk tongue rueben

    So I saved the tongue from my elk last fall. I just got around to pulling it out of the freezer and doing something with it. I cured the tongue using diggin dogs cure calculator. It actually stayed in the cure for MUCH longer than I had planned (life got busy). It was in about a month. I...

    Wagyu brisket smoke

    Well the adventure begins tonight. Wagyu brisket went in the smoker a little after 11pm. I've never trimmed a brisket so I just sorta hoped for the best. I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos and reading a lot of articles and forum posts trying to learn. I trimmed off about 2 lbs of fat...

    Wagyu Brisket

    Well, nothing like cooking an $85 brisket for my first one.  I've done lots of pork in the past 6 years since I built my smoker, and recently have done a few chuck roasts that were great.  But I haven't done a brisket yet.  I wanted to smoke one for my son's 1st birthday.  My parents and the...

    Ham experiment

    large sous vide bags?

    Hey guys, So I want to do some experimenting for Easter Sunday dinner with a sous vide ham.  Problem is, my vac bags aren't big enough to hold the ham.  I bought two...a smaller one to test out this week with the wife, then one for Sunday dinner when the family comes over.  Gallon ziplocs aren't...

    first chuck roast

    All this talk of chuckies lately made me want one!  I've never smoked a chuck, or any beef for that matter.  I've done lots of ribs and pulled pork though.  I did a ton of reading through the archives here and here's what I ended up with: I've always had to reload my smoker with more charcoal...

    Smoked...then sous vide...pork butt experiment

    Hey guys, So I started a thread a while back asking if anyone had done this but nobody seemed to respond with much advice.  I gave it a shot.  I rubbed a pork butt with a rub I found online on another website.  Its my usual pork rub, its called Memphis Meathead Dust.  I smoked the pork at a...

    Buckboard Bacon and beans

    I took the end chunks from my BBB I just finished up and put it in the slow cooker with some pinto beans. I prefer black eyed peas, but this is all we had on hand at the moment. Pinto beans, BBB chunks, onions, a few garlic cloves, black pepper, and water. Put it in there last night to...

    cocktail wieners/little smokies

    Hey guys, so my wife doesn't really like sausage or bratwursts, but she does like hot dogs and those little cocktail weiners or little smokies...whatever they are called.  I'm trying to convince her we need a dedicated sausage stuffer (the kitchenAid mixer is horrible).  I told her I could make...

    Deer backstrap

    Another experiment last night. I put a chunk of backstrap in my usual marinade of Italian dressing and worcestershire sauce. Also added a splash of Dale's seasoning for some salt. Normally I just pull it out of the marinade the next day and grill it up, basting with the marinade as I go. Wanted...

    Sous vide/smoked pulled pork

    So, I've got a pork butt in the freezer that I plan on cooking in the near future. I was thinking of doing the regular rub then put in the smoker, but only till the internal temp hits about 155-160ish. Then putting in a sous vide bag and going overnight at 165 in the sous vide. A recipe I found...

    tongue...cured, brined...thoughts?

    Hey guys,  So I have a tongue in the freezer I'd like to do something delicious with.  I have read up on the difference between corned beef and pastrami. I think I'd like to go the pastrami route, but had some other questions. Some recipes have had some differences.  Some call for just a salt...
