Smokin' Al

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by ackmead, Sep 30, 2012.

  1. Smoking and grilling is my favorite pastime. The only thing better is sharing what I have cooked with my family! I have an offset smoker, a Weber kettle grill, a Weber Smokey Joe (for grilling a grate full of vegetables), and am currently hooked on using my Green Mountain pellet grill, which I absolutely love! My wife and I are partial to pork shoulder, but we also love babybacks and chicken. As far as I'm concerned, it's hard to beat a perfectly smoked briskit but it's not my wife's favorite. So, each briskit I do smoke is a treat and I get to eat it for several meals in a row. I have absolutely no problem with that! I am looking forward to learning new recipes and techniques from all the "seasoned" veteran smokers on this forum, and appreciate your family-friendly approach to things!

    Hello and [​IMG]  to SMF -glad to have you here 
  7. Hello and welcome to SMF! Just can't beat a good brisket, especially when paired with Chef JJ's Smoky Au Jus

    Chef JJ's Smoky Au Jus

    1- Lg Onion,

    4-5 Carrots,

    3-4 Ribs Celery

    3-4 Peeled Cloves of Garlic

    Toss them in a pan under the Beef, and let the whole deal Smoke for one hour, 

    THEN  add 4-6 Cups Beef Broth,

    2 Tbs Tomato Paste,

    1/2 tsp Dry Thyme (4-5 sprigs Fresh)

    1-2 ea Bay leaf

    Finish the Smoking process to the IT you want.

    While the Roast is resting, dump the pan juices veggies and all into a 2-3Qt Sauce pot and add 1Cup Red Wine, something you like to drink, and bring the Jus to a boil, lower the heat and simmer 20-30 minutes. Strain out the veggies and let the Jus rest a minute or so for the Fat to rise. Skim off the bulk of the fat then using strips of paper towel laid on top of the Jus then quickly removed, take off the last little bit of fat.

    The purpose of Smoking the Vegetable for 1 hour before adding the Broth and Herbs is...The Smoked vegetables Roast in the Dry heat concentrating their Flavors and Sweetness giving the finished Jus a Richer, Deeper, Full Flavor. 

    Serve the sliced Beef Au Jus or thicken the Jus to make Gravy
