Misc. Meat Smoking on the RF

    Various meats smoked this weekend for the family.  My daughter was
    visiting with a Chinese PhD student friend of hers for Thanksgiving.  One
    of the benefits she feels entitled to when visiting is vacuum packed smoked
    products off the reverse flow and grills.


    She knows her dad cooks way to much food for Mom and his self so she takes
    the excess and hauls it back to her apartment in the Denver area.


    Don't know how the rest of you do it, but when I am firing up the smoker for
    a run, I always swing into the super market and have a look at managers
    clearance bins.  Today I am firing up for a contest... so since the beast
    is running I might as well fill her up.  Found  Norwegian salmon whole
    3 pound sides for $4.00 per pound.  They will make nice Christmas gifts,
    found a whole chicken at 5 pounds for 49 cents per pound, found chicken thighs
    for 29 cents per pound.  Found a left over ham for 52 cents per pound. 
    That should fill up the reverse flow for the run.  And the daughter is
    positive she has room for all this stuff.


    Also made up two pots of turkey soup one rice and one egg noodle, but forgot
    to take the photos of them.


    Chicken thighs are candied in a sweet Thai Chile sauce with some extras added
    to it.

    The whole chicken is done in Hawaiian Huli Huli sauce and pineapple with a
    chili garlic background.

    Ham was done with clove and pineapple with a cayenne pepper background.

    The chicken thighs do especially well in the RF as there is a double plate on
    the end before the roll back to give extra heat for crisping the candied meat.

    And a piece of salmon in the pickle.

    There are other things cooking too... but some I cannot photo all of them for
    some reason.


    Hoping everyone of you relaxes a little this holiday weekend and has a great
    time with family and friends.

    Great looking food, let me repeat that, great looking food, sir!

    We love Huli Huli chicken, but I just do pieces never tried a whole bird, and I'm addicted to sweet Thai chili sauce, IMO Thai chili sauce and chicken were made for one another, could you tell me what the "extras" are or are they secrets?
