Hickory Farms Has Nothin' On Me

This is my first attempt at using a smoker. First a little background, my wife has made a holiday beef stick for all the years I have known her. The recipe was handed down in her family. It was cooked at the lowest temp the kitchen stove could go for about 8 hours.

All of my kids are on their own now and all of them have been smoking meat for some time. I have never tried it until today. I got to thinking that the wifes beef stick might be even better smoked. So I tried it. Fantastic!!!!!

She prepared the meat and spices 24 hours ahead of time. Then I borrowed my youngest son's smoker and went to work. Five hours later it was at 165 internal temp, so I cut one open and tasted. I'll try to add a picture of the finished product.

Mighty good looking grub there blue.What did the wife think of your modification.The smoke really puts a good flavor to an already great snack I bet.As soon as I down a couple more deer this week Ill make some sticks of my own.Your pic has got me inspired to spend more time in the woods.Keep it up,the possibilities are endless.I ordered some high temp cheese to add to my sticks this year and I cant wait to try it out.Would your wife consider sharing the recipe with the forum,we would be honored,David
