Cut, for your viewing pleasure

Yum!Collapse )

In all, I'd say it was a successful first attempt. Attempt #2 will have about half the salt in the rub that this recipe called for, and I'll have a spice/coffee grinder to better break up the peppercorns.

So I'm doing some reading/research on how to make bacon. Has anyone done, or know anyone who's done this?

It doesn't look terribly complicated, it just takes some time for the curing.

Made brisket and ribs today for father-in-law's birthday dinner.

I'm exhausted.

The brisket needed to be cooked longer. It tasted good, but wasn't "falling apart" done.

I'm taking my first attempt at smoking a brisket this Sunday, along with a couple racks of spare ribs. I've done the ribs before using the 3-2-1 method from the Barbecue Bible (That Steven Raichlen’s technique), and they turned out really well, and tasted GREAT.

I was walking through BJ's a month ago and picked up a copy of The Barbecue Bible, so I'm going to go with the recipes from there, as well as some smoked baked beans, and their sauces (I'm going to do the basic bbq sauce, as well as their North Carolina vinegar sauce, and combine the two for the brisket).

I love smoking days, even though by the time it's done, I almost (almost) don't want to eat it.

Might as well double-dip a bit.

In my previous post, I mentioned the Char-Griller Duo as the grill that I want. Does anyone have any experience with this grill? I really like the idea of two combined grills, gas for weeknights, and charcoal for weekends, and adding the fire box for smoking.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

The grilling season is upon us here in Western NY (for some, it never ended). While I ponder a new grill (just bought a house, so I can finally have one!), of which the Char-Griller Duo has nearly won my heart over, I find myself stuck with a bit of a conundrum: The local grocery store has had pork shoulder for $.99/lb. I bought one and threw it in the freezer for when I get my grill/smoker. The conundrum, you ask? The pork shoulders went on sale for $.69/lb (they expire today), so I bought yet another one. I now have close to 20 lbs of pork shoulder in my freezer, and that's about it (I've fun out of room).

SO...I need to cook one of the shoulders this weekend, and sadly, I do not yet have my grill (I can't go out and buy it this weekend because it has to be ordered, delivered after about a week, then assembled). My current plan is to cook it in the oven at about 220 deg, and "pretend" it's being smoked. I'll add a rub, possibly a shot of liquid smoke in the roasting pan to give it some semblance of smokey flavor, and then pull it and bbq sauce it up for some, hopefully, killer pulled pork.

Aside from being complete blasphemy to cook/"smoke" a shoulder in this manner, does anyone see any potential issues with such an approach?

The ribs have been marinating since yesterday and are coming to room temperature. The Pit is now cleaned (looking at my fingernails shows it), fired up and should reach proper temps shortly; homemade bran muffins are in the oven & the breakfast pizza for the week goes in when they come out. Then I'll begin coring apples and cook them for making jelly.

It's an absolutely gorgeous day here and I pray that it's as beautiful where all of y'all are!
