Brought home a 5.25 lb eye of round from Sam's yesterday, $2.94lb. I trimmed off about a half a pound of fat and brushed on some Worsty sauce and then gave it a liberal coating of MSS. Wrapped it up for a night in the fridge.

Up this morning before the birds were singing I fired up the Pro 100 to 180º and loaded in the beef with a pan of hickory

While that was underway I packed four pint jars for canning with the salmon trimmings from this winters three lox efforts. Had the All American 21 purring away on the new patio stove setup

After the first hour I changed the chip pan with some fresh hickory and raised the temp tp 200º, then went back in the kitchen to make some dough for a batch of my burger buns. Right about the time that was finished the salmon was ready to come out and cool down, looked perfect bubbling away.

Time was zipping by and I again changed to some fresh hickory chips and raised the temp on the Pro 100 to 225º, twas smokin' fine!

I looked over and the dough I'd set out earlier was all ready to rock

I knock it down and form six burger buns, cover it up for a second rise, and head out to the store to find Pepsi Zero for the wife. I'm back an hour later with the goods, plus a little meat for me. I turn the oven on to 375º, the TP-20 alarm goes off letting me know the eye of round in the smoker has just reached 127º, pull it!

The buns go in the oven, 18 minutes later I'm rewarded with this.

Now all the pressure is off, the beef is in the fridge and will go thru my slicer tomorrow, be perfect for French dips and sannys. The canned salmon is in he cupboard and there when I want it, the burger buns are in a ziploc in the freezer. I'm slicing a little top sirloin I grabbed at the grocery store, thinking Philly cheesesteak after another dip in the pool and a couple of pops of Evan

Pretty darned productive 3rd, maybe I'll just take it easy tomorrow. Hope y'all have a great and safe 4th, life is good! RAY

Holey crap Ray, you didn't even have time for a half dozen dips in the pool.
I would agree though, very productive.

Thanks Rider, don't you worry, we were in plenty. No it's dark, might go skinny dippin"! RAY

Made a couple of tacos on the BS too, not bad for a old guy on a hot day. Mix that salmon up with a little mayo, chopped onion, and pickle relish, happy happy! RAY

It's pretty good right out of the jar Travis, sometimes I'll give it a light smoke before canning. When you got kids you work until you can't anymore, or they can take care of themselves. Once the kids are grown and gone you get a dog so you've got something else to take care of. RAY

Ya know Peach if the shipping these days didn't cost five times what a couple of jars were worth I'd be more than happy to. There was a time many years back I used to bring shopping bags of wild caught smoked king salmon to a dog breeder just so I'd get pick of the litter, and I did. I lived 20 minutes from the boat launch on the Pacific ocean for almost 60 years, my partner and I used to refer to the stuff as Alaskan sled dog food, was sick of it. RAY


Thank y'all for the kind comments and Likes, I truly do appreciate them! RAY

Thanks Ryan! The All American is a beast, I got it about six years ago for canning kokanee salmon up at Flaming Gorge in Wyoming. I'd set it up on the picnic table right at the campground and do 2-3 loads in the week were there, then someone told me it was illegal to do that. Then I moved the operation inside my cabover camper with the AC on high, we cancelled this years trip, along with everything else. Have a safe and sane 4th Ryan, remember to be safe, and thanks for the Like. RAY

Thank you John, here's to hoping you kids have a great day also! Beautiful pool day, going to be about 110º, just about time for a beer. Got that eye of round sliced up, came out perfect, glad I pulled it when I did. Bob loves slicing time, something always seems to hit the floor. Bob goes to the groomer Monday morning for a do, getting a little scruffy. RAY
