    Tri-Tip. Amazing Cook on My Pit Boss Pro Series 850

    One of the MAIN reasons I bought the PB Pro Series 850 was for its ability to sear. Having NEVER cooked a tri-tip on a pellet grill before, I was pumped to see the results. Wow! What an absolute pleasant surprise this turned out to be. I marinated it for about 6 hours. I then cranked up the PB...

    4th of July Brisket (My 2nd Attempt at Brisket)

    Had a prime brisket for my second try at brisket. The first go went well, everyone enjoyed it, but I knew it could be improved on. On the first attempt I tried a rub that I personally ended up not caring for, so for this second one, I decided to go with a more (Texas) traditional style, even...

    Help w/ AMNTS cold smokin in a Pit Boss pellet "grill"

    Folks, I have one of the PB 700-series models. I tried cold-smoking cheese this weekend with my 12" AMNTS, and I was disappointed with the thick, white smoke it produced and the bitter, acrid, chemical taste of the cheese after smoking. I have vacuum sealed the cheese and plan to let it mellow...

    First chuck

    Tried chuck for the first time, each about 1.5 lbs. I just used some Excalibur steak and roast rub. Smoked around 200 for a couple hours, then bumped to 225. I wrapped in foil at 160 IT and took them to 208. Planned on supper, these were done at 1 pm (started 7 am, I had no clue on time.) I kept...

    Since I was already firing up the smoker for pulled pork I figured I'd try a new experiment that I'll call Vampire Pork just because I can. Started with a 50/50 mix of coarse ground black pepper and smoked Kosher salt and a whole mess of garlic cloves. (For easier "peeling" of all those cloves...

    Pit Boss - over-smoked jerkey?

    i have a PitBoss series 5. I made a batch of jerky using Bear’s method (long drying process with small increases in temp). However because even the lowest temp produces smoke it resulted in an over-smoked taste (but excellent texture). How do I reduce the smoke flavour? Do I just empty the...
