A busy week smoking (pic heavy)

I was off work the week before Memorial Day. I haven’t smoked a lot lately due to the lousy PA weather we seem to have anymore...so the smoking bug built up inside of me.

Well, the weather was fine and I scratched that itch!

I ended up smoking a few things, so let’s cut to the chase.

Chuck Roast Burnt Ends

Smoked, cubed, set the glaze and serve

Spatchcock Chicken with Alabama White Sauce

My wife and I had the breast for supper, with Alabama White Sauce and cucumber/tomato salad. The left over thighs were turned into chicken salad for lunches.

Reverse Seared Tri Tip

I decided to try the Hardcore Carnivore Black Rub. The Tri Tip came out good...but boy was this rub Salty!!! I think I’m going to add 1 part black pepper to this rub to reduce the amount of salt covering the meat while keeping the “black” rub to the meat.

The activated charcoal provides no taste, it’s just gimmicky, but it does provide a nice contrast to the meat.

Looks awesome! Big like! Did you do the Chuck Roast Burnt Ends in the same manner as belly burnt ends? That really has my interest.

I loosely followed one of Jeff’s chuckie burnt end recipes in his newsletter.

What I did was made slits in the roast and then rubbed with salt, pepper, onion, garlic and a mix of ancho/pasilla chili powders...and then soaked in Worcestershire sauce overnight.

Then I smoked the chuckie to 190IT. Once it hit that temperature, I cubed the roast and threw it in a disposable pan.

Next I added 3 tablespoons of the aforementioned rub along with Texas style Heinz bbq sauce. I used just over half a bottle until the burnt ends were well coated and sloppy....then thew them back in the smoker until the sauce cooked down and created a sticky glaze on the meat. This took 1.5 hours at 275-300 degrees.

I have never done pork belly ends. I would like to try them but bellies are pricey here.

Thanks for the recipe. I have a chuck roast in the freezer that will be used for this. Hopefully, next weekend.

Thanks jcam! First time having it and I enjoyed it. I used the Bob Gibson recipe that chile posted. I added more black pepper.

There’s quite a bit left, I’m gonna head to the store in a bit and buy the pre mix shredded coleslaw and add the rest of the sauce...that and some jalapeño cheddar sausage will be my dinner...hmm sounds good!

Thanks George! I remember you came along for the ride on my first tri tip.

I ended up talking to a butcher and they special ordered a case for me. It was 6$ a lb, so I have a small stock now!!

Currently beats the $13.49lb the local grocer is carrying them for...They’re out of their damn minds!!!

DAMN! My market has been selling some awesomely marbled Tri Tip for $2.99 a pound lately. I have two in the freezer right now. It’s such a great cut of beef. I love to pair mine with a baked potato and some broccoli.

If I found'em that inexpensive I'd put a couple dozen in the freezer.

Thank you. I’m about 40 minutes north of you. I’m in Mountaintop, it’s between Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre.
