  1. Since I'm going away tomorrow on my birthday I decided to cook myself some birthday food today...

    I started the day off with some BBB from another round of the Buckboard Express.

    Some good stuff  [​IMG]

    Then I made a yellow pudding cake from scratch

    & started some bread.

    While the bread was rising I made some old style icing from scratch

    & applied it to the cake.

    Bread ready to punch down.

    After I beat up the bread I started warming the smoker up & got some hickory pellets ready in the AMNPS.


    I prepped this bottom round

    with a bit of SPOG

    & threw it gently into the smoker.

    Smoker temp 220                            AMNPS running hickory pellets

    When the bread was almost done I mixed up a batch of Special Brownies & tossed them in the oven.

    Happy Birthday Jeremy! Enjoy the day and your pre birthday meal!

    Smoke away!!!
  7. Ok I pulled the bottom round & it is wrapped & resting...

    Moving along I grabbed a New York Strip

    Mild earthquake - please stand by...

    Ok that's better... I gave it a light dusting of fresh ground salt & pepper along with a bit of garlic

    & in the smoker it went to take on some hickory. Pay no attention to the meat probe there - it was in the bottom round & I didn't take it out to clean off yet...

    Once the steak was in the smoker I got out a nice Vidalia onion

    Chopped it up & started cooking it.


    I peeled some potatoes & started them boiling softly.

    & then the special brownies got done so I took them out.

    The onions are almost done.

    All the baked goods together relaxing...

    I decided I needed mushrooms as well to go with my steak

    & some of those should be split off so that

    I could add some heat to them

    with a generous helping of my Habanero pepper  [​IMG]

    Stove getting filled up now - onions are off screen to the left.

  10. So what day before birthday meal would be complete without some homemade sausages?

    I put a few brats on the grill & added a few ears of corn to watch over them.

    Onions, mushrooms, taters - everything on the stove is done...

    Steak is now out of the smoker, coals raised up & getting a sear.

    Ok here is my main meal - mashed taters, grilled corn, bratwurst & a reverse seared steak with mushrooms & onions  [​IMG]   I accidentally slid the cooling rack over into the cake icing  [​IMG]

    Close up view of the steak, mushroom & onions.

    Very juicy & tender - Yumm... [​IMG]

  11. Now for the bottom round...

    Just unwrapped - can already tell it's gonna be very juicy  [​IMG]

    I was right  [​IMG]


    I will be slicing this thin tomorrow to take with me but I had to try some & ended up eating several slices & it is just as good as I remembered it from a few weeks ago lol. As to the plate - I recycled my steak/sausage/corn plate rather than getting a new one. I've eaten after myself in the past & never had any problems...  [​IMG]

    Great texture & nicely tender...

    After eating all that stuff this is all the room I had left for dessert...

    A small special brownie & a small piece of yellow pudding cake...

    Good stuff though!  [​IMG]

    All said this was a great meal & I am set for my birthday tomorrow...  [​IMG]

    Thanks for checking out my pre-birthday meal  [​IMG]
