Home cured ham, smoking with hickory.

I just replaced the control panel for my masterbuilt smoker, and it was about half the price of the smoker when I bought it a couple years ago.

I would've bought a new smoker, but I felt bad tossing this one out when it could just be fixed with a control panel.

Next time I have a problem with it, barring a disaster I'll be getting a new one.

I thought I'd throw out some functions I'd like with my next smoker and see if anyone could make some brand or even specific appliance recommendations.

  • I'd like to stick with an electric smoker. I really like the set and forget method, it's almost like a crockpot. The worst that happens now if I don't keep up with feeding it chips is that it doesn't smoke. I don't lose heat. The food still gets done on time.
  • I'm not bringing a smoker indoors.
  • My current smoker can't get above 275°F or maybe 300°F. I'd like it if my next one could get up to 400°F or even 450°F. Then I could make some sides, or even maybe just use it almost like an oven in the summer when we don't want to heat up the house.
  • Size/capacity- I want it moveable by one person. I've never used all four shelves in my current smoker. I might've used three shelves once or twice in the couple years. I assume that if I can use it to make some sides that I'll need a little more space.
  • I like being able to set a cook temperature with an app. I used to be able to monitor a meat probe thermometer in the app and would like to get that feature back.
  • I sometimes cold smoke cheese in my current smoker. I would like to be able to keep doing that.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Dang I'll bet that was good.

I put a 14lb turkey in at 6:15/235F and was amazed when it was done by 9:10! I dropped the tamp down to 195F until 12:30 when it was time to go and it still turned out awesome. I'm still trying to figure out how it cooks so fast. I think part of it must be the water pan that keeps the smoker steamed. I think part of it is stuffing it with aromatics that heat up fast and basically steam it from the inside-out.
I made sure to stick notes in my phone this year because I knew that it went faster than predicted last year, but I couldn't remember actual numbers.
I'm smoking a slab of home-cured bacon today.

I’ve got 3/4 of a pork loin being turned into Canadian style bacon. It’s getting the cornmeal “peameal” treatment Saturday

Beef ribs to close out US Tgiving weekend.

Local FiestaMart had full rack beef rib roasts for $5.95/lb this past week. Unsure if it's a regular price since there was no indication of it being a special sale price. Rack was the size of a full brisket. I removed the roast leaving 1/2"-3/4" of meaty goodness on the ribs for a treat that isn't available when purchasing a typical rack of beef ribs.

Dry brine with sea salt for 24 hours, dusted with the Amazing Ribs 'Big Bad Beef Ribs' rub (recipe link below) and loaded into the BGE at 225F for what was a bit over 7-1/2 hours to hit an internal temp of 195F in the thickest areas between the rib bones. Best rack of beef ribs I've ever done, and possibly the best rack of ribs (pork or beef) I've ever done. These would give the best ribs I've had in Ft Worth, TX a serious running (and tie or possibly win)


I have a second rack in the freezer, and will be slicing up some thick cut steaks from the roast later tonight

Leg of lamb about an hr into the cook. Cherry wood on the electric smoker at 275 deg F. Didnt get a finish pic but i did get one of the leg i also cooked in the oven. The drippings from the smoker made an excellent gravy

My son in law cooked a 9 pound standing rib roast on his Komodo Joe, very lightly smoked. Absolutely delicious, far better than the prime rib meal 1 paid $50 for at a restaurant.

This was a couple of weeks ago. Brined and smoked chickens. Took them over to in laws’ house. They can’t get enough smoked chicken.
I like it as well but really like to use leftovers in chicken salad with apples.

Wanted to mention the temp probes. It’s a Inkbird Bluetooth 4 prong temp thermometer. This thing has been excellent. I won it a few years back but if I lose this thing, I’ll order another on Amazon today.
There may be other alternatives but this thing has been flawless. And I’ve come to like their products over the years. Including the 308 temp controller that sits quietly in my garage working year after year.
Great job @inkbird
