I just have been seeing 22 inch wsm users waking and loading another 3/4 pounds of kingsford in the morning hours during overnight cooks. Well I havn't logged on for literally years but fairly recently I purchased a...

    a few quick ?'s

    Is lemon thyme good or not so much. Ever use a dried anaheim, or big jim chili? is it worth the time drying, smoke/drying, or dehydrating or is it just better for making AWSOME rellonos? Aji Lemon' (sp?) Does it truly have an unbelievable citris taste somehow or is this another joke. also is...

    still have a question after all this time

    long story short... would high heat cooking people agree that theres some advantage w/ low/slow in some situations at least. The "cali guys-tri-tip rub" post got me thinking. I am at a draw w/ grilling them vs. smoke/bbqing them. I think a tri is awsome cooked at around 280 or so for several...

    exellent rub, credit due

    I think its taken 2 or 3 years but I've really settled on my fav. kind of rub. I've been messing around a lot the last year with dehydrating all kinds of things we've grown here. My latest fav. rub is a rearranged version of the "metomorphisis" rub. I've never been smart about, or understood...

    agave necter?

    I made a glaze w/ this and put it on some chicken just to see what happened. I let it cook on a while and it doesn't seem to turn so dark..? (maybe). This stuff is pretty good but is very sweet. It def. has a plant taste to it. Wether it was silly on chicken or not everyone was impressed, I...

    cast iron myths (in my experience)

    its been a little while back but I posted about having a lot of older used pieces. I was at the time in the process of cleaning them up etc. 2 rounds of oven cleaner worked on the ones I wanted to start completely over with. I used orbital sanders on a few. first mistake I made was using to...

    just interesting

    a lot of smoking i've done. I've noticed kingsford original seems to makes a bigger smoke ring then lump (royal oak ussually). I find this strange and makes no sense to me, but then again I cant fight it cause it happens time and time again. I don't know what else to say except I know its not...

    quick easy question

    so just to verify for sure this time.. dry mustard in everyones (or not everyone, depending) experience doesn't "activate" or whatever the term is, ON bbq meats, when included in rub (brisket, pork, etc.)? not at all period, or is it just kind of agreed on that its just not enough to do any...

    new fun, good food

    lately have been kind of caught up in thinking that fresh wild mushrooms are pretty good eats, and kind of fun too. I REALLY need a recommendation for a good acurate detailed book of them though if anyone has one. Im in CO. (might not matter though for a recommendation). Anyway I have a...

    maybe learned something somewhat new

    tryin to keep this short, but: put a tri on the smoker a couple nights ago or so and thought it was pretty darn good, but different. I've never actually smoked one before (I know, sorry guys) so thought i'd try. Was obviously more tender, but a bit dryer. Keep in mind i've GRILLED a load of...

Im thinking of marinades, brines, cures, pretty much anything for...
