    Space making butt smoke

    I needed to make some room in the deep freezer so, this Butt was evicted along with a bag of wings. The wings went into the baby freezer which had to get rid of blue ice to make room there. Anyway, the butt had thawed and I have no room for much of anything. So, I made up a quick rub and went...

    Someone posted a wonderful looking smoked marrow bone recipe a while back and I can’t find it. Seems like it was smoked and then served with toast points and bacon jelly, can anyone help me out with that?

    Replacement center for GBS?

    I have a feeling this has been discussed before but, I’ll be jiggered if I can find the thread! Anyway, I was looking at the center of my GBS grate and it looks like I’ve started to go through the chrome plating. Is there a SS replacement center out there? RCPlanebuyer? I saw nothing on Amazon.

    Found a new source

    A new Latino grocery store opened up about a mile away so, I decided it was a pretty morning for a walk down and see what they had. They had some nice looking Flanken ribs so, I’ll wander back and pick up a few and play with those pretty soon, they were $2.99/lb. so I didn’t think that seemed...

    Last straw unless...

    I’ve had Maverick TM-03 timers for over fifteen years, the first one lasted 10, the second, an hour, the third a week, the last one has made it barely a year! Well, that might be a little harsh but, I tried a couple between first and third just to be disgusted with the lousy quality of available...

    Cold, wet, but, not too windy!

    After the less than stellar barbecue from the joint in Grant, AL. Followed by some truly masterful pork in South Carolina, I decided that I really had to smoke a nice butt! Yesterday was as glorious as one could have asked for sunny and 70 degrees. Today, not so much, rain on and off but, not a...

    Fair warning, may be moved!

    I need a little guidance from “locals” Heading out on a bit of a less than total pleasure trip next week. More a hurried “see family in a bit of a rush” kind of thing. Long and short of it, heading south from here to northern Alabama on Monday, not sure if a lunch stop in Louisville is feasible...

    After years of searching!

    I have been told and told and told that skin on pork bellies are NOT available in Michigan. I’ve never really believed it but I finally googled “why can’t I?” And up pops a place about 40 miles away that offers it right there! I will finally be able to try doing Porchetta! Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmm! I am...

    Jacques Pepin makes me feel...

    Incompetent! I decided that, after years of watching him de bone a whole chicken in under a minute, I would go ahead and try swimming in that end (very deep) of the pool. It probably took me the best part of 45 minutes. I think I just need a LOT of practice! Making the stuffing was a snap, the...

    Has anyone seen the Google...

    Strange article on the Google homepage today about steak and eggs!? It strikes me as very much an exercise in how to burn yourself! I’m too stupid to post a link but, it’s there. And just what the hell is a “Denver” steak? Silliness

    When the elevator does not go all the way to the penthouse!

    We have had almost ten days of miserable wet weather here in the heart of the mitten state. I was out this morning needing to move some things for a weekend party, bumped the “overperformer” and had a splash of water come out of the ash catcher! D’UH! Where in the world would rain go? It’s more...

    Strange happenings with this brisket!!

    Beautiful weather for smoking a brisket for my wife’s son’s birthday! Being Michigan, sometimes the weather can take a strange turn with little warning! Anyway, after getting all cleaned up and putting on a fresh white shirt, I decide I should set up the smoker for the brisket, I successfully...

    I’m a really lucky guy!

    Lucky because I have a small business less than ten minutes away that makes some of the best sausages I’ve been party to! Youz Guyz sausage in Portage Mi. Makes truly artisanal small batch sausages with an attention to quality that has set the bar pretty high for (unsmoked) sausages. I have...

    Rotisserie- direct or indirect?

    There is a thread already begun on this subject but, maybe a “bigger” voice can offer some additional insight? Both sides of the discussion are pleasant and points are well made. But, your opinion would be good to hear.

    OK, I’m a convert!

    Only one batch of wings using the Vortex and, I see the advantage! Whoosh, that thing throws heat! Far superior to my “Faux-Tex”, I didn’t have the scorching hot handle that some of you have mentioned but, I wonder if that’s due to the cypress handle I had made? Simple “Kickin’ Chicken” rub...
