    Your no. 1 pork rib suggestion?

    Jill- You didn't indicate whether you were planning to cook babyback or loin ribs. If you are cooking babybacks, then I agree with the above times. However if you are talking about St. Louis cut you need to tack on another two hours.

    Cold smoking to make King Salmon jerky

    Dan- It only generates smoke. You use a tea candle to start the sawdust smoldering. I have used mine to smoke cheese and make lox. It works great.

    Tritip cooking question

    My local butcher has tritips on hand and I just ordered a 3 pounder. I have never seen a tritip, let alone cooked one before. I've heard such great things about them here that I wanted to give one a try. I am assuming that I should grill it. Should it be marinated, or just seasoned and cooked?

    New 22" WSM, totally impressed

    Welcome to the forum Joel, and congratulations on acquiring your new WSM. You'll love it. I noticed that you said that you placed the chicken on the top rack and the Boston Butt beneath it. I would suggest that you avoid doing that. There are food safety issues involved. There are people on...

    1st smoke - Butt Questions

    If you are going to use chips, soak them first for about 1/2 hour then make aluminum foil packets that each contain about 1/2 cup of chips. You don't need any more than 4-5 packets, depending on how smoky you want the meat to be. Poke a hole in each packet. Put about three packets on top of the...

    Shipping Barbeque

    If anyone has any experience with shipping frozen barbecue, I'd appreciate some advice. My son is attending college in NJ and asked me the other day whether I could send him some smoked turkey. I had already been wondering about the possibility of sending him some Q, but now need to kick it into...

    Pepper Stout Beef

    Hi Larry, Since first seeing this recipe months ago, I have been anxious to give it a try. I finally got around to it this past Saturday. Found a nice 4 lb. roast at the local Publix. I tried to follow your recipe as closely as possible. My only deviation was the jalapenos. I forgot to get...

    Center Cut Beef Ribs,

    Beef ribs are usually well done within 4 hours on the WSM. If you want them rarer then you would obviously take them off after less time.

    6/30 Episode of Top Chef

    I remember the question about the bones. It was asked by the smirky guy who won the first couple of challenges. I'm sure that the head games that they played with each other off camera was far worse than what we saw on the TV. Each season, the producers always try to find someone to play the...

    6/30 Episode of Top Chef

    Did anyone see this week's episode of Top Chef? Their challenge was to cook for congressional aides using brand new Weber charcoal grills. The grills looked like the 26" model. Anyway, to light the coals the coals it appears chefs were given chimney starters and containers of Kingsford lighter...

    Birthday Present and Some Q's

    Happy Birthday Joe. I agree with the earlier comments, but of course have to add my 2 cents. 1) As stated earlier, you won't have to worry about additive if you use quality briquettes. to me, the real advantage with briquettes is their consistency of burn and ability to easily pack tight in...

    Chimney starter too smokey

    I use a small blow torch. I fire it up, focus it on a small pile of charcoals for about 30 seconds, and away they go. I find it to be quicker and far less smokey than the chimney starter.

    ProQ Cold Smoke Generator

    I have waited too long to smoke my next batch of smoked Cheddar and now its almost 90 degree every day here in Florida, but I'm really Jonesing for some cheese. If I was to fill my water pan with ice cubes do you think that I could successfully smoke some cheese and not have it melt away from...
