    How to make smoked chicken for a party?

    I've thougt about going Mexican with the chicken, but I'd like to have "normal" sides, like potato salad, cole slaw, etc., and I'm not sure how Mexican will go with that.   I don't have any sausage to smoke (unless you mean to smoke some brats?)   To New2Que, what did you do with the chicken...

    How to make smoked chicken for a party?

    We're having a party for my son next month, prior to his leaving for Afghanistan and I'm trying to figure out what food to make.  We have four whole chickens in the freezer and I thought it'd be cool to do something with smoked chicken . . . but what?  There won't be enough to just have...

    Spare Ribs in the Smoker (first time) w/Pics!

    I used the method below to smoke the ribs. 3-2-1 Rib Method The 3-2-1 method of smoking ribs is not my original idea but is a process that tends to yield very consistent results and I do use it occasionally when I want my ribs to be falling off the bone. If you have no idea how to prepare...

    Spare Ribs in the Smoker (first time) w/Pics!

    My son, Aaron told me earlier in the week that he was going to be coming home from college this weekend, so I wanted to make sure to make a really good, home-cooked meal for him on Saturday.

    First Attempt at Summer Sausage! (Long)

    Thanks, everyone! My son and I both appreciate your thanks! My husband was the superintendent of the smoke house operations at Klement's Sausage (in Milwaukee) for 13 years, so I relied on him a lot for answers to my questions about making our own sausage. He's used to batches involving...

    First Attempt at Summer Sausage! (Long)

    During the deer hunting season here in WI, my son got a deer . . . unfortunately, not in the traditional way (or maybe it WAS the traditional way! LOL). He didn't shoot one, but happened upon a woman on Highway 29, just a mile from our house, who happened to hit not one, but TWO deer! We think...

    Deer Summer Sausage

    Are you thinking of stopping at Mars Cheese Castle? Don't bother. Their curds are "flash frozen." They'll tell you that they're just as good as "fresh" once they're thawed out, but they're not. Even warmed up, they don't give you that signature "squeak" (and "rubbery" feel) that is...

    Deer Summer Sausage

    Quick Question re Ribs HELP, please!

    OK, folks . . . here's a pic of the ribs I'm making today. Let me know your thoughts on cooking times and temperature. I'm planning on eating around 7:30, and have to leave at 3 p.m. for my school bus route, so I either have to start them before I leave, or I won't be able to get them on until...

    Quick Question re Ribs HELP, please!

    I'm going to make these Apple Smoked Spare Ribs, tomorrow, but have a couple quick questions. The ribs I have are COUNTRY STYLE spare ribs. Does that change the cooking time? Do I need to put them on a Rib Rack or can I just lay them on one of the racks in my smoker? I'm making these...

    so what is everyone doing Thanksgiving?

    We used to always drive 200 miles to mom and dad's house for Thanksgiving, then we moved up here! Even then, we always had Thanksgiving at their house, as mom likes to do everything HER way (ya'all know how THAT is! LOL) We almost always had our dinner on Saturday, because the guys were out...

    Smoking Jerky 101

    Well, I made my jerky today! I actually started it last night. I bought a roast (don't remember what kind, but very little fat), sliced it VERY thin and then used a seasoning mix that our business sells that includes cure. I used it dry, rather than adding any water to it. I then placed it...

    Mountain Man Breakfast

    Thanks everyone! I really LOVE my Dutch ovens. When we go camping, I bring along a couple hundred pounds of cast iron! It got to the point where I was worried about all that weight in the back of the camper! LOL Aside from five Dutch ovens that I usually bring, we have our double...

    Mountain Man Breakfast

    Our kids request this meal every time we go camping, and seeing as we have about 20 laying chickens, it's a great way to use up eggs! Please note, this makes a LOT! You may want to consider sharing it with your camping friends or, if you're like our family and enjoy leftovers, just save the...
