I just started keeping a smoking/cooking log book. I was wondering how many others do the same and what info they like to track. Give us a quick rundown of what you track please. This will help me drill down to what is most important. Thanks.
I use to log on my laptop. After a year, maybe 2 years I figured out what worked for my beef pork and bird cooks. ... feedback from my family mostly help with direction and changes. Those logs became our standards for seasoning and smoking method.
Still... I'll mix it up a bit. Looking for the next great thing. I need to get back to those logs because on the rare occasion while attempting the next great thing something remarkable happens I can't remember what i did!
Being new to smoking, I have contemplated a log book until I figure out what the hell i'm doing. I'm trying to figure out my own rubs so I don't have to rely on store bought. I made up a little form to records the recipe and modifications I made to it. I plan to keep that until I figure out a rub for beef and pork that my family likes. I may now modify it to act as a log and keep track of everything from start to finish. My thoughts were to print the form out, write all the processes in it, then get a binder and three hole punch them for storage and safe keeping.
