Greetings from Boise!

  1. Hi All,

    My name is Steve Testardi, and I'm in Boise, Idaho. I've been lurking here for a while, but figured it's time to make my presence official.

    After years of trying to smoke food on a gas grill using wood chips, my wife and I finally purchased a Smith & Wesson 500MAG in June last year. My very first project was a smoked salmon and since then, I've used it to cook everything imaginable -- jerk chicken, brisket, ribs, corn bread, baked beans, sweet potatoes, turkey, peppers & onions, burgers, steaks, even smoked nuts!

    This forum has been a great resource -- thanks to all of you who contribute!

    Welcome. So, you made corn bread in your smoker. That is a new one to me, maybe not to others here. Did you use wood, how was it?

  11. Hi Bert,

    I use a pellet smoker, so wood is the only source of heat. I baked it at whatever temperature the package directions called for (350 maybe). We used off the shelf cornbread mix (Marie Callenders), and my wife added some corn kernels and minced jalapeno. It was awesome. The cornbread really picks up the smoke flavor, and I found that you can bake the cornbread in the oven and add it to the smoker for just 10 minutes at a low temperature (180) and it picks up the smoke flavor just fine.
