      Looks good. I haven't dug my cookers out from the snow yet. I figure I'll wait till tonight's snow is done.

    We had the Snow Ball open on Long Lake yesterday. This is a yearly fundraiser for the Orono Lions Club. They set up a short 18-hole golf course on the lake every winter for the event. This year, we sponsored a tent and I decided to make ribs for everyone. I got 3 PBCs rolling at 4 am and -8 F temps to get this done in time. Once the ribs were done, I sliced the ribs, and through them in a turkey roaster to keep them nice and warm. I had my thermapen out on the ice with me to make sure I kept the ribs in the safe zone while serving.

    This was a great day! Chilly, but a great day. (I think my nephew, Wyatt, enjoyed the ribs and snow!)

    My wife is working a 12.5 hour shift at the hospital today. So while talking to my daughter yesterday about what we could together today I was THRILLED to hear her pass on movies, etc and instead she wanted to put the PBC to work! 👍🏻 She’s been watching the recipe videos on the PBC website and knew just what she wanted to do, so off we went...

    She started off tossing 2 dozen organic wings in PBC All Purpose rub.

    We lit the PBC, the only thing I did was pour the lit briquettes into the charcoal basket. Once it was ready, she put the wings on.

    We let those go for 45 min. Meanwhile she mixed up a BBQ-sriracha sauce just as in the PBC video. I’m lucky, she does like things on the spicier side, particularly for a 10 year old (10 and 1/2 if you ask her).

    After 45 min they were looking pretty good, ready to get sauced.

    We let them go another 10 min to caramelize a bit and they were ready.

    I have to admit they were better than I expected. I wasn’t sure the PBC would get hot enough, thought they might be a little chewy. Not at all, they were fantastic, she even declared them Super Bowl worthy, so I may have marching orders for next Sunday.

    But she wasn’t quite done... there was another PBC video she found, and the cooker was still hot. So when we took the wings off, she cut parchment paper to fit a pizza pan and put some Nestle’s pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough on.

    These cooked for 20 min (during which time we DEVOURED the wings), and we had some nice melty cookies for dessert.

      It is a joy to watch you and your daughter doing a cook together. Building memories that will last a couple of lifetimes at least, yours, hers, and her children if she has them.

    My second cook since getting Meathead's book!. Thought I would try the sweet georgia brown smoked yard bird.
    I purchased an electric smoker (Gasmate - not sure why its called that as there isnt any gas involved), they're branded as masterbuilt in the US.
    I live in the suburbs so it suits my needs.

    Anyway, followed the recipe with just a light coating of the rub and very little smoke (as explained in the book). So I cut up the chicken breasts and went to get the legs off the grill to go and take a photo - but I was a bit slow and most of it had disappeared.
    Super happy with the results. Very strong flavours - I used beech which was interesting.

    Feel free to add comments as I'm learning. Working my way up to doing a brisket :-)

        Buffalo wings. Even with the shield the wind wreaked havoc on my WSM.

        Beef! It's what's for dinner!

        16.88# Costco USDA Prime Brisket, trimmed about 2 pounds of fat, then dry brined 24 hours, rubbed in whatever I had made recently from AR (might have been Mrs. O'Leary's Cow Crust or whatnot), smoked from 10PM last night until around 1PM today, crutched and finished to 205F in the oven. I snapped the last pictures right before wrapping it for the crutch.

        I wanted a smaller one, but nothing smaller had a decent flat. This flat was thicker than 2 inches at the very end - so many of them were skinny things that would have dried out.

        Slicing in 1 hour, as it is resting in a warm oven since 4pm.

        Once that was done I browned 4 pounds of "Beef Shoulder Roast"

        cooked up some diced onion and Jalapeño, got the trusty Osterizer out and puréed the chilies and a bunch of garlic and then sautéd the salsa in some oil:

        It splatters a bit.

        Once I'd got that done I added a quart of chicken stock, all the meat and enough water to (mostly) cover:

          Good Gawd. I really loved the spatter, that's how you know it's real. Never trust a kitchen that don't have a little spatter somewhere. Dude, I can smell that through the screen!

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        Placeholder

        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

        Placeholder

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        Placeholder

        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!

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        Placeholder

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        Placeholder

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        Placeholder

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        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'.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Placeholder

        Napoleon's 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. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
