    Using a Small Grill to smoke a Brisket

    Hello. I'm new here so I'm not entirely sure where to ask this question, so forgive me if I have misplaced it. I'm a college student on a budget, and currently own a small drum-style charcoal grill that I primarily use on my tailgate for weekend cookouts and whatnot. I've wanted to do some...

    Red Alder

    Hey everyone, I've been working on a side gig gathering and drying red alder here in southeast Alaska to cut down into disc's, chunks, or chips for smoking meats and game. Mostly I guess I'm wondering if there is even much of a market for it, as I'm isolated from the rest of the world on this...

    Hi Everyone! Kinda new to BBQ and Smoking, but had some great results so far with doing both on a Weber Kettle. I've decided it's time to up my game and build a UDS, but I'm incredibly indecisive and struggling to find the answers to the questions I have. I've managed to track down a food grade...

    Smoked chicken breast pastrami - when smoking IS healthy

    Hey guys, I love making this one - keeps well in the fridge, and if you vacuum pack it and freeze - easy can hold for a month or so... Pastrami is actually originated from Romania, there they call it "pastrama", and they do make it from beef, lamb, turkey, so I said, why not chicken?! Also...

    "Sunday Fair" style smoked lamb shanks

    Hey guys, Lamb shanks - one of the most underestimated cuts, and absolutely undeservedly. I love those braised or, in this case, smoked pretty much the same way they smoke turkey legs. So here we go! So simple, so delicious - few lamb shanks, rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with Kajun...

    Pork belly burnt ends - aka the pig candies

    Hi there, guys! This is my take on the absolutely mouthwatering recipe by Jess Pryles, the one and only! What you will need: - 3-4 lb pork belly, skin off, cut into 3-4cm (1 ½") cubes. - Your favourite BBQ rub - I used a rub with a bit of cherry sweetness in it, e.g. Three Little Pigs Touch...

    Featured Beer can chicken - yet again!

    Hi guys, Long time since I've posted anything here, very long time ... So here's a beer can chicken, which to be honest is not quite a beer can one, but rather a beer ceramic base. This base you can get on Amazon for about 20$, and then just use your favourite liquid in there - beer, apple...

    Weber Kettle or ProQ Frontier for Occasional Smoking

    I currently don't have any BBQ at all and I've been keen to get into some low and slow meat smoking. I've narrowed my decision down to either buying a ProQ Frontier Smoker or a Weber kettle grill. The majority of its use will be for fast grilling, hence why I'm considering a Weber kettle, but...

    Smoker build

    I’m converting an old refrigerator into a smoker. The fridge was stored outside and not taken care of too well. I’m not worried about the exterior but the interior has some rust and pealing paint, I’m curious what others have done to clean out and refinish the interior. I plan on doing things...
