Default 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.

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 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.
