    Brining ribs

    These ribs were definately not dry or tough.....They were "fall-off-da-bone" tender and very moist. They were advertised as "locally smoked" so I'm guessing they were not totally prepared at the restuarant.

    Brining ribs

    Does anyone here brine their ribs before cooking? I ate at the local country club restaurant last evening and they had smoked ribs as a featured special. They were smoked very well but seemed to have the taste of ham. Also the meat was the color of ham, which leads me to think they were brined...

    Turkey question

    My brother and nephew both shot turkeys today and want me to smoke the breasts for them. I have never smoked a turkey much less a wild one so I am wondering if there is anything special, aside from brining, that should be done with them. Is injecting something to consider? The meat will be...

    Smoking deer sausage; 1st go at it

    I agree with everyone here......50# is very ambitious for someone who has never done this before. Stuffing with a grinder works very well.....if you have an Enterprise 32 with a 1hp motor driving it like we had. One guy making tennis ball size gobs of meat, one guy loading the grinder, one guy...

    smoke generator cleanup....

    When using a smoke generator, like a Big Kahuna, what is the best method for removing the creasote build-up in the unit itself? I noticed that the use of wood pellets causes considerably more build-up than using chips or chunks. Witness the puddle on my driveway

    foiling question

    When doing multiple racks of ribs do you foil them seperately or can they be foiled together? Also if foiled together, can they be put into an aluminum turkey pan and covered with foil to serve the same purpose?

    wiring question

    Picked up some high-temp wire from a local electrician......29 cents a foot. Didn't think that was too bad. Now I'm waiting for some high-temp connectors from Fastenal.

    wiring question

    I just got my strip heaters and was wondering if regular #12 wire will work if I take the temp up to 350* or will I have to look for a specialty wire?? If there is such a thing

    question on viewing pages....

    Look at the post "Census"......There is no picture and I still have to scroll right to left. I have noticed that some members posts require the scrolling even without a picture. This is not a complaint about it......just a question Could it be something in the signature line???? I'm using the...

    question on viewing pages....

    Why is it that some of the posts can be viewed in the window without moving the window right to left and others have to be moved? Is it my computer or is it the posters issue?

    Temp problem

    Thanks Deltadude, I checked out the link you included in your prior post. I am seriously considering 1 or 2 finned strip heaters from Grainger made by Tempco Electric Heater Corp. Do you think these heaters will work for my application? My walls are made of 2x6 frame with 6" fiberglass...

    Temp problem

    I gave her another run last night with the switch eliminated altogether and it ran up to 205*............but it took 2 hours and it was in my garage which was 60* with no wind to effect it. Looks like I will be going with something different. What's the general consensus, finned strip, tube or...
