    SPATCHED TURKEY WAS TUFF !!!!!

    Did some turkey breasts (bone-in and brined for 3hrs before) at about 250-300 this weekend.  Pulled after about 2hrs and 160IT.  Rested for a good long time, they were perfect.

    Competition Blend Pellets

    I did some more smoking this weekend.  Tried some St Louis Style ribs with the ANMPS loaded up with Apple pellets again.  Did not work again.  I didn't protect the ANMPS from drippings, that was my problem this time. To confirm the ANMPS will burn these pellets at all I did a cold smoke test. ...

    First Cheese Smoke - Mozza with AMNPS

    After 2 weeks in the freezer (no room in the fridge) I tried my first block.  It was smoky!  Too much so really.  I put a few slices onto a pizza but mixed it with other cheese because it would've been too powerful.  I put the rest of the block back into the fridge in a ziplock bag for another...

    Competition Blend Pellets

    Flavour was pretty good.  The apple was fairly subtle.  Not a lot of experience for comparison though.

    First Brisket with QView

    Had the family over for a my first brisket smoke...pressure was on!  Got a 12lber from the local butcher.  It was pretty well trimmed so I basically left it as is other than removing the large, tough chunk of fat from the corner ("corn??") Rubbed with cracked black, green and red peppercorns...

    Competition Blend Pellets

    I tried these this weekend.  Mixed results using my ANMPS, but don't think its related to the pellets themselves.  I tried using the apple with a large pan of baked beans and they wouldn't run, I believe too much moisture.  Also tried them with a pork butt sitting in sauce and a large (2-3...

    Competition Blend Pellets

    I have the apple pellets but haven't tried them yet.  Will be putting them on this weekend for a big pork shoulder.  Will let you know how they work in the AMNPS.  If they work out, I'll be buying a bag of competition as well.

    Smoking walleye and perch

    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/70642/butter-smoked-walleye-w-qview Planning on trying this in the future.  Lots of fat with the butter so should help with dry-out etc.

    Flattened Chicken and a Turkey Breast

    First smoke on my new Masterbuilt electric Cookmaster.  Worked fantastic.  Love it compared to trying to smoke on my charcoal grill.  Set it and forget it!  The chip holder lasts about 2hrs filled up on this at 250 so perfect for this smoke.  Used apple and alder chips.  Brined both of these in...
