    Kootenay Pit Beef Video

    One of my earlier smokes was an homage to Baltimore Pit Beef, see my earlier post https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/pit-beef-one-of-the-best-smokes-ive-done.182637/. I have made it often since and decided to try it in my Traeger. I did a video of the cook if you are interested. Disco

    I've got some beef ribs and wondering about what rub to use. I haven't smoked beef ribs before so this is new territory for me. I've been using Jeff's Original and Texas Style rubs on some recent smokes and like both of them. I was wondering if I should lean towards the original "since they're...

    Spicy Lime Chili Jerky

    I love jerky. I also love spicy food but it doesn’t love me. The question was, could I make a spicy jerky that walked the tightrope between spicy and pain causing? This is my effort. The first consideration was what kind of spicy? Different spices, peppers and sauces give different kind of...

    Hey all, it's been a while but just stopping by to share an amazing dinner we had tonight. I found a great ribeye roast at my local grocery which was a shock because you usually don't find this with a fair amount of marbling.
