    beef eye of round roast. **need input**

    I halved the recipe of Pop's wet curing brine. It got vacuum sealed and left in the fridge for 3 days. I used a hickory rub. Smoked it for 3 hours with sugar maple pellets. Then it was reverse seared on a grill the next day. It was a little tough, but very tasty and juicy. No pics. I was...

    beef eye of round roast. **need input**

    I did a chuck roast yesterday. I chose one high in fat and injected it with melted butter. I cured it first and then injected it. Put a rub on it and cold smoked it. Then wrapped it on plastic for 2 days. Then I grilled it. It was still a little tough, but very tasty!

    My First Fatties.

    Well I tried to make 2 fatties. It is my first attempt. I failed on my Breakfast Fattie. It fell to pieces when I tried to roll it. I think 1.5 lbs would work better than 1 lb. It was really thin in the 1 gallon bag and I tried to put too much in it. My second one was 80/20 hamburger, cheddar...

    Pizza stone recommendations?

    I use one that just says Huey Hang and Taiwan on it. I usually put it in the oven after the oven is already preheated. I do all of my biscuits, muffins, and even cookies on it. Never had a problem with it. I just seasoned it when it was new and never had any issues. I've had it for 10 or more...

    Pork butt in freezer for 2 years

    As long as it isn't freezer burned and it doesn't smell funny you should be fine. I read a study that shows if meat is packaged properly, that it can last in a deep freeze for 10+ years and still be fine.

    Smoking Necessities

    I just need to get some Cure #1 and maybe a good injector and I think I will be good to go for a while. I need to find somewhere that I can find some pork bellies so I can do some bacon.

    ThermoWorks ChefAlarm

    Has anyone tried one of these? I am looking for a cooking probe. I would get the maverick, but I have heard about a lot of issues with the probes on them and that the 3' cables are too short.
