Who's smoking meat this weekend?
 
It's Christmas day. Woke up at 6am, fired up the smoker and threw on a big pork shoulder for some pulled pork tonight. I put on a wild dry rub from TexasBBQRub.com yesterday and I'll be making a red sauce to go with it.

That sounds great! We had our Christmas dinner last night- a leg of lamb, garlic mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus, etc. Today is the first Christmas I didn't have my kids living with me, so it's quiet and weird. We're going to my daughters in a little while, though.

We don't have a smoker, but maybe we'll play "hide the salami" later! ;)

Niiiiccce. :rockin:

I smoked a 9lb brisket, 2 chickens, and 2 slabs of pork spare ribs on Wednesday for my work Christmas party. It turned out great, and I did a batch of BM's Centennial Blonde at the same time.

Then when the party was all done, and I had the leftovers packed up and ready to take home, I knocked the 2 pans over and shattered them. I could care less about the pans, but after 13 hours in 25 weather, it really sucked to see it covered in broken glass. Not that there was a lot left, but enough for a good dinner that night. :(

I did a brisket to go along with the turkey. Marinated in maui rib sauce overnight, then put a standard rub on with extra brown sugar. Turned out great. Maybe a little dry, but still great.

Cold or hot smoke?

I'm jealous... My smoker has been fired in months.

Cold smoking is easy as hell, especially in this weather, as long as it is above freezing out. All you need is a box (grill, smoker, even a cardboard box), some wood chips (not chunks or dust), a small coffee or large soup can, and a brand new soldering iron. It will take less than 5 minutes to set up and will work great.

Probably too late now though because for cold smoking you need to use a curing salt which you probably wont have in the brine for a hot smoke.
