    Flank Steak Fajitas (a 36hr. Sous vide + Smoked process)

    The one issue I had keeping something from floating, I placed a spoon in the bag(some double bagged to keep it off the food, I just single bagged it) + plus used the round end of a metal skewer clipped to the side of the pot to keep it on the bottom. It wasn't pretty, but it wasn't difficult...

    Flank Steak Fajitas (a 36hr. Sous vide + Smoked process)

    AbeLos, I used mine in a stock pot for a few cooks before my cooler came in. The best advantage that the cooler gives is the minimal evaporation....which only comes into play during the longer cooks. Just saying, no need to wait for the cooler to start playing with it. JimK, the cooler is the...

    Flank Steak Fajitas (a 36hr. Sous vide + Smoked process)

    CaseT, this wasn't something I was seeking out. I added it to a wish list that I didn't expect to get fulfilled. But after about a half-dozen cooks using it, lets just say that there are certain cuts of meat that I'll never cook any other way. RichG, I might have mislead you a tad. The process...

    Flank Steak Fajitas (a 36hr. Sous vide + Smoked process)

    Just getting used to this new Sous Vide I got for Christmas and decided it was time to see what the Smoker could add to the cook. Money shot....topped with homemade cilantro/lime rice, sauteed pep and onion, fresh avocado, and a great chipotle salsa. (excuse the platting, it was just me and the...

    What's your favorite WSM accessories?

    My is still a bit bare in terms of add-on's. The only mod/accessory it possesses is the charcoal basket mod (18.5" grate clamped onto the coal ring, setting atop my 22.5 grate). A few of the mods like the hingle lid and the new door seem like a luxory to me. But to each there own. Actually...

    Brisket size/shape help... please?

    I could be way off here, but judging from that 3rd pic. I think that part on the left is the point(?). In which case, I wouldn't simply use it for hamburger. I'm not a fan of this, but in order to fit, maybe separate the point from the flat. I bit more fat trimming, and it might fit.

    Appreciate the input fellas.

    Do the Bradley Smoker pucks do well in the WSM?

    This is not a question I think I would have ever asked, but when you parents buy presents without being too educated on the matter - one tends to be put in this situation. So as a present from my overseas dad, he sends me over a 16lbs box of Jim Beam (oak?) Bradley pucks. On the box, it claims...

    New Barbecue Books for 2016

    Instead of making a new thread, I thought I'd use this....so I got a bday soon (4/6). And as usual, my father (overseas) combs Amazon with my latest hobbies in mind. So I scored some Beast Claws (Bear Claw-like handlers), some cool skewers, an odd indoor/outdoor "smoker" that I'm not sure if...

    Is there a "best way" to smoke a Butt and Full Packer simultaneously on a 22" WSM?

    I'm on the 22" WSM, and have had it for just over a year with heavy use. So I'm still green, but getting a pretty good handle on it. Second Brisket cook though, so even "greener" there. First one turned out great, just had to hold it a little longer then planed and it was a shade dry in the...

    Minor Ham problem..will this work??

    Ooof, I can't imagine twine would be able to keep a spiral cut from leaking your injection straight into your pan. I've got only bad suggestions, - Oven bag? - Rotisserie style basting/bath? - Return for the correct ham?

    Is there a "best way" to smoke a Butt and Full Packer simultaneously on a 22" WSM?

    Since I've already got this thread going....let me ask a related question. Since I'm pushing past a half-day smoke, I'm debating on going water-less to eliminate the need to refill. But I would like to retain some form of heat-retention, and w/o shopping for pizza stones or playsand - I was...

    Is there a "best way" to smoke a Butt and Full Packer simultaneously on a 22" WSM?

    This could very well be the best course of action. But I might not get my hands on the meat till Saturday morning.

    Is there a "best way" to smoke a Butt and Full Packer simultaneously on a 22" WSM?

    Is there a "best way" to smoke a Butt and Full Packer simultaneously on a 22" WSM? I've been tasked with the Easter dinner and told Brisket and Pulled Pork is the main entree for the early afternoon dinner. Sounds like an untrimmed 14lbs Packer and a 10lbs Boston Butt is on it's way over...

    1st use of WSM set for Saturday.

    I'd have to recommend against testing the stock thermo by measuring temps from the side port. As there is (and should be) a pretty large difference between the two areas - especially if you are using water in your pan (even if your not). The heat from the coals will measure MUCH higher due to it...

    Rusty Chicken

    This will not be the first recipe of Cliff's that I've brought into my "kitchen". One of the biggest reason's I keep coming back to this place!

    A couple of chickens on a chilly winter morning with the WSM

    After the dinner, the only thing left to take with him were the empty carcasses. That brine is something from the gods! (a lot of work for it, but well worth it)

    A couple of chickens on a chilly winter morning with the WSM

    (got to apologize for the HUGE pics! I'd love to reduce these things to be view-able) Dad's getting ready to head back overseas after the holidays, so as per usual, I had to offer him some form of smoked meat before he left. He picked chickens, I picked the recipe (one that I'm starting to get...

    brand new smoker

    Never understood why you can't season your smoker and cook at the same time. (I'm with Len)
