    introduction..

    Greetings fellow meat smokers, For me nothing smells or tastes as hedonistic as the process of rendering fat on a fire in a smoker. I presently use an assassin 28 at last once per month and I load it up, smoke till its done refrigerate, vac pac and freeze then live off the fruits of my labor till I run out. I then repeat as often as needed. I have been smoking meat with my family as long as I can remember. My earliest memories are of my maternal grandparents having a smoke house on their dairy farm.

    I also roast coffee and enjoy that endothermic transfer to exothermic process and the wonderful perfume aroma created during roasting. Plus having really fresh coffee is another bonus. Well these are my favorite pastimes and smoke meat and coffee go good together. I use coffee in rubs and sauces. It is a thing of great beauty for the nose, taste, eye and ear. in short smoke meat and roasting coffee give me joie de vivre, or for you not from south Louisiana, Joy of Life.

    Laissez les bons temps rouler,

    Randy Harville

                  Welcome, I was given a coffee roaster and have never used it. Where do you get your raw coffee beans?

                    Not sure where the OP gets beans, but I know Williams Brewing sells a variety. They are in California, but they have Internet and Catalog service.

                            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            Groundbreaking Hybrid Thermometer!

                            Thermapen One Instant Read Thermometer

                            The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

                            Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


                            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


                            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
