    Followed meathead’s recipe for smoked turkey. Came out really good but I still don’t care for turkey. Chickens are way better. Lots of leftovers for others.

    Finally smoked up some salmon, it sat in a dry brine of salt, brown sugar, dill, and garlic powder for a little over 24 hours. Smoked at 220ish for a little over 2hrs until 175. Did a small taste test hot to make sure it wasn't too salty and it's perfect. I was gonna do meatheads recipe but I didn't want a glaze since this will be for eggs in the morning... So in the fridge it goes. The dogs all had a taste and the new puppy won't stop following me around or double checking the spot in the kitchen where I was slicing it now

ID:	618788 Cooked a tri-tip today. Something I rarely do as I have only once seen the cut in Canada. Happen to be in the US this week and picked one up. Dry brined for 48 hours, and was just planning to smoke it, but doing some reading this morning, it sounds like more people prefer to use SV somewhere in the cook process. By the time I saw one of Jerod Broussard ‘s posts where he suggests 6 hours in the SV, I didn’t have that much time. Moved quick and rubbed with Henrik ‘s beef rub, then into the SV at 130 for 4 hours. Then into ice bath followed by freezer to cool it down for close to an hour. Then put on the pellet smoker at 225 to get some smoke till meat temp hit 115, then cranked the smoker to 350 to get some crust. Turned out fantastic, tender and juicy. First pic is after the SV but before smoking, and second pic is the final result.

      Frozen Smoke posted his Dutch oven chili dogs and it took me almost a year to get around to trying them. Mom gave me her Lodge DO at Thanksgiving so I knew then it was about to happen. Mine don’t look as good as his did, but they were darn tasty, enough that the wife and kid referred to “next time we have them”, so... 👍🏻 These were Boar’s Head skinless 100% Beef hot dogs in Martin’s potato buns with mustard, chili, onions, cheddar jack, and bacon crumbles. Chili dog jones satisfied!

      Had some minor knee surgery this week and so while sitting around on my butt, I thought I'd do some butts. The one on the right was rubbed up with Memphis Dust while the other got a coat of Oakridge Competition courtesy of my secret santa Oozzy--thanks man! They went overnight and I wrapped in the morning, then pulled at 203. Mighty tasty! Trouble is it's only my wife and I looking at this pile 'o pork. Usually when buying a two pack of butts from Costco, I'll freeze one but there wasn't any room in the freezer what with all the holiday leftovers. Sooo...huevos, sammies, enchiladas and green pork chili dead ahead. Poor me Click image for larger version

        Which did you like better? The Memphis Dust or Competition Rub?

        I buy the two pack at Costco also, but always cook them both. The vacuum seal and freeze for meals later. Great flavor and aroma even after freezing.

        I rubbed each butt differently with the intention of comparing the two side by side. What I didn't take into account was that over time, I've morphed my Memphis Dust mix according to my own taste and I discovered it's profile looks a lot like the competition rub. So the differences were pretty subtle--I'd have to say it was a draw when it comes to personal preference.

        What's your recipe for the sprouts? Wife said she didn't like them until I did some fresh ones on Christmas, I wanted to smoke 'em but she wouldn't let me deviate from the recipe I had since we had company coming over.

        I had 1.5 lbs of sprouts, I halved them along with a small sliced onion, and tossed them in olive oil and 1.5tsp garlic salt + .5 tsp black pepper. I then smoked them for 30 minutes at 225 with hickory, pecon, oak blend. Then roasted them at 430 for ~20 minutes.

      The MAK has been busy this weekend... Got these pellets at Sams Club, less than 30 bucks total for 2 40lb bags, I was leery because surely that's too good to be true, but they worked great. When it's light out tomorrow and I clean the grill we'll see how much more ash they put out than the other pellets I was using. The boys wanted to model the bag... or they were protecting me from it, not sure.

      The wife got me some baby backs from Wally World, so one got rubbed down with MAKs Sweet Rub and the other got a dusting of BPS Desert Gold. I wasn't sure how they'd pair up with Blues Hog but both did good. We both prefered the slight kick from the BPS rub over the double dose of sweet.

      Click image for larger version  Name:	0105191532_HDR.jpg Views:	1 Size:	3.08 MB ID:	619232

      So I REALLY liked the Blues Hog, wife said it was good... better than the store bought stuff we have available locally, but she still prefers Famous Daves sauce. I'm not a huge sauce fan, but I think it's the best tasting I've ever had.

        cleaned the grill and no more ash than the other brands I've tried, color me surprised. I'll have to make a pit stop to Sams and hope they still have the same price, $100 of these pellets would get me through the summer for sure

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    the good one grill

    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

    Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    NK-22-Ck Grill

    Their NK22CK-C 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.

    Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

    masterbuilt gas smoker

    Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
