    Hello all,

    The wife and Mini-me went to Florida to visit her parents this morning. Of course that means I got to play with the smoker today instead of working on the honey do list.

    Pork brisket bones aka rib tips & some wings

    I had read a thread on her that mentioned injecting the hot sauce into the wings so I just had to try it.

    Injected with buffalo sauce and sprinkled with a Cajun spice mix

    Pork all slathered in mustard and a sprinkling of a store bought rub

    Thin blue, and I really am liking the igrill2

    I decided to use a sweet and tart mop today consisting of Apple cider vinegar, orange juice, brown sugar, and spog. After two hours at 225-235 the wings were just hitting 160 internal. I pulled them off and crisped the skin on the grill.


    I mopped them a few times on the grill which really added a nice zip to them.

    Ready to eat! I must say that I think the tips of the wings are an under appreciated item often relegated to the stock pot or the trash. Personally, I love the crunch and if cooked well enough you can even eat a few of the smaller bones.

    My partner in crime for today's shenanigans (also the clean up crew)

    After about six hours over cherry I glazed the tips and pulled them into a plate

    Mmmmm

    Final playing with some tater Dakar, coleslaw, homemade dill pickle chips, and a seasonal local brew.

    Of course I didn't even put a dent in the pile of pork, but life's about the journey not the final destination. If I could have changed anything I would have used a wood with a stronger flavor. I like cherry and all, but it was a little too subtle.

    Thanks for watching,

    Flip
