Gotcha. It’s probably dependent on smoker style. I personally feel I get very similar smoke with my pellets smoker to my old stick smoker. I’ve been very happy with it so far.Yes.
Pretty much, even if only for 2 hrs. Running a vertical cabinet pellet smoker, usually has quite a bit in it.
It was pork casing, correct.Those look nice. Looks like you used hog casings. I tried collagen casings on the kielbasa I made the other week. I like the ease of putting them on the tube but boy are the tough to cut through and chewy to eat.
Oh man I miss Lincolnshire sausages. I worked in Lincolnshire UK for a few years 2 and 3 weeks at a time. Those look great!Made some sausage yesterday, drying in the fridge today.
The pink ones are lincolnshire style sausage, gonna put them in the freezer later today when they have dried a little more.
The darker are chuck roll and venison, gonna smoke those badboys this afternoon.View attachment 718697
So far it's going along fine not much of a bark on it but that could be the pellet grill..... but for set it and forget it and a fast cook it's hard to complain about as long as it is descent. I would have rather done this on my Kamado Joe but I was tight on time this morning so the Pit Boss was my go to with 15 minutes to get things going. It was nice to not have to think about it over night when I was trying to sleep though so I am hoping this works out and so far I am thinking it will.Looking forward to hearing how it works out!
I had the same thing happen to my GMG. It has been the only hiccup in over 6 years of owning. I had to buy the part from their website and I figured it would cost an arm and a leg. To my surprise it was about 11 bucks and took all of 2 minutes to replace.so I had the thermostat go out on my pit boss about a month ago. they sent me the replacement in less than a week... seems to be fine now. however, they sent me a pack of their pork butt rub. its only 1oz. wtf am i supposed to do, 'dust' it?! frustrating they send you such a small sample... who smokes a 3lb butt?!
Happened to my Pit Boss back in November they sent me 2 full size Java Chop House seasonings with it and I have to say it's pretty darn good on lambso I had the thermostat go out on my pit boss about a month ago. they sent me the replacement in less than a week... seems to be fine now. however, they sent me a pack of their pork butt rub. its only 1oz. wtf am i supposed to do, 'dust' it?! frustrating they send you such a small sample... who smokes a 3lb butt?!
I just put tongs out with it and we just grabbed what we wanted - The laziest pork butt possible but hey it was a work dayGlad to hear.
Yeah, the biggest difference is the bark. But the way I look at it, if you're planning on using it as pulled pork, that's not a big deal. The bark still tastes good, it's just different. And not having to spend 15-20 hours babying a smoker starting overnight or in the wee hours is worth it to me.
I want too build a UDS but have not found an excuse to yetI smoked a pork butt for pulled pork on a regular Weber kettle using the ring of fire method.
Rub: amazing ribs recipe
Time: 9-ish hours
Has anyone done pork shoulder/butt on an ugly drum smoker/barrel smoker?
I use smoked chicken for a simple chicken salad. Turns out great. I won’t eat a regular chicken salad.I forgot to take any pictures but I made Creamy Smoked Chicken Noodle Soup this past week. I thought I’d share this with you because it really added amazing flavor.
I smoked some chicken thighs at 180*f for 2 hours. I took them off and seared them in a cast iron pot and then put them off to the side.
After that I made a creamy chicken soup with in that skillet with flour, butter, heavy crea, sautéed red onions, carrots, celery, and poblano peppers. I then added the chicken back in to finish cooking. Added the noodles. Removed the chicken to shred it and put it back in. Finished it off with some fresh dill.
It was an absolute flavor bomb. If you have a solid soup recipe, I highly suggest giving it a try with smoked chicken.
What did you get?Just ordered a new digital smoker, can't waste another brisket on my old crappy one. Scheduled to arrive a week from Monday but maybe the shipping gods will intervene and get it here in time to try it out next weekend. Can't wait to do a brisket!
It's an electric from Pit Boss, I started out to buy the basic analog model and build a PID controller for it, but the digital version was only $30 more so I went for that one. If/when the electronics crap out I'll build a controller.What did you get?
Pit Boss comes with a 5 year warranty and they make good on it without a problem.It's an electric from Pit Boss, I started out to buy the basic analog model and build a PID controller for it, but the digital version was only $30 more so I went for that one.
