    The July 4th spread. Flank steak (I use a Mediterranean marinade for it usually), chicken breast and back ribs for the meat. Deviled eggs, oriental chicken salad, potato salad, Mediterranean pasta salad and fruit salad for the sides. Had 10 people total, including the wife and I, the kids, plus six guests. Nothing survived.

      fuzzydaddy deviled eggs are probably my favorite side for a summer meal! I'm trying to convince the wife that I could take one of the yard and make it into an outdoor kitchen and Tiki Bar .....

    Left over brisket sandwich. Hunk of brisket point reheated in the HTTM, sliced, put on a toasted garlic roll, topped with some slivered red onion, a drizzle of Barrister DEW's Rum Molasses BBQ Sauce and pepper jack cheese. Popped under the broiler to melt the cheese. It was absolutely delicious:

    From the other day. I was out of sandwich bread, so I decided to do some burger buns while I was at it. This recipe rises so high that I decided to try to force the buns to spread rather than rise. That did not work for two reasons. 1 - I put the buns too close together on the pan, and 2 - the rise was strong enough to raise the half sheet pan with 8 lbs of water on it anyway. So I wound up with very tall slider buns. That's OK because they still taste great and are very tender. I did freeze them two to a pack, but I'm thinking I should have done three. BTW - this bake was in the oven because I don't want smoke on my sandwich bread, and burgers should have enough smoke without adding smoke to the bun.

    Tomorrow's dinner. 8 lb butt with MMD rub with a couple of chunks of plum, and 1 oak for good measure. The binder clips fixed my air eakage problem. I am still learning the SNS and 225 degrees remains elusive, but I have managed to groove 235 for a good while now. I can live with that for now.

    RonB ... Nice looking buns. I like their color and adding the sesame seeds makes them sexy.😆

    The burger buns you buy at the grocery store are all perfectly round and uniform in size. The is achieved by putting your dough in ring molds.

    Freestanding buns, not in a ring mold, will be different sizes and they will expand outwardly not upwardly.

    You can make ring molds out of Aluminum foil or you can buy them on Amazon.

      Breadhead - Thanx. I actually wanted them to spread more and rise less. Next time I may try increasing the hydration a bit although I know that will make handling the dough more difficult.

      RonB ... Handling real high hydration dough like ciabatta is just another learning curve. Try it a few times and it becomes routine.👍

      Well, I've been doing a lot on the new WSM and I can't have my Hasty-Bake getting lonely. Side note ... We should have a section just for Hasty-Bakes, dang it. Anyhow, cooked a tri-tip last night and going to make lamb mechoui tonight. Here's the tri-tip cook. I took it up to medium to medium-well range cause then my wife will eat it. Still great.

      Technique - dry brined with Montreal steak rub for 6 hours. Light one chimney of Kingsford Professional (lights fast, tons of heat). Load 4 small chunks of hickory into the firebox (didn't have any red oak this time) and dump the hot coals on top of the hickory. Let the grill temp come up to about 275 and then put the tri-tip on the indirect side. When the IT is where I want it based on my Thermapen, over to the direct side with the firebox cranked right to the top ... Probe said my grill temp was 845! Sear for about 3 minutes per side, bring it in and slice.

        I just had a huge red oak cut down in my backyard and I kept a decent amount of it for firepit/smoker use. Let me know if you want some. A large USPS flat rate box full would get you several cooks.

      My 2nd cook on the Rec Tec RT-680. I used their pellet blend. I also used a 6" Smoke tube with their blend of Hickory... It provided HEAVY smoke for about 2 hours. For a thermometer... an iGrill Mini linked to my iPhone 6. These are Costco Ribs (Baby Backs, pretty sure). Three slabs in the vacuum sealed bag. $22. I make my own rub, and applied liberally, then used the 3-2-1 method (3 hours at 225, 2 hours in the crutch at 225, and the last hour at 230, basted lightly with Sweet Baby Rays (yep... it's my favorite). I've had better ribs, buy only in Memphis at BB Kings... just saying. So... I'm pretty proud of them! They fed me, my wife, daughter, and 4 adult men... but all of us would have eaten more, so next time it's 6 racks!
