Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?

 

I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.

 

It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....:P

Had a friend going camping this week and asked me to make up a “few” wings that could be reheated in the crock pot on Wednesday. Yesterday he dropped off a 10# bag from Costco. I laid them out on cookie sheets on paper towels so they could dry out a bit then coated them with some olive oil and lawrys. Good thing Costco doesn’t sell an 11# bag cause the smoker was full! They turned out pretty dam good. High heat for about 45 min. Rotated and flipped half way through.

OMG. If anyone here who likes steak has never tried a tri tip you are missing out. I cooked 2 of them last night for the first time and it was delicious! I smoked them at 225 for about an hour on my over-priced pellet grill ;) until they reached an internal temp of about 110 then I opened the flame broiler feature of my over priced pellet grill ;) and seared them for a couple of minutes per side and then let them rest for about 15 minutes before slicing. We had some friends over and everyone scarfed it all down before I could get a picture of the finished meat.......

 

If you do one though, be advised that the grain of the meat will run in 2 different directions so you have to take care while slicing so you make sure to carve against the grain.

Where do you find them? I’ve asked several butcher shops and nothing.

I have a friend that owns a meat market and he can get them for me but I decided last minute I was going to make these so I got them at my local Coborns grocery store. They seem to always have them as well as whole briskets.

I'm making pork spare ribs today on the pellet grill. I have never done them before so it's experiment time. I made a rub and used the vacuum sealer to do an old school shake-and-bake. I thought about starting them with the cold smoker in my masterbuilt but decided to run this batch 100% in the pellet grill and see what happens.

They will be delicious, that's what will happen.......

 

I like to foil mine after about 2-1/2 - 3 hours of smoke. I slather them in squeezable butter, brown sugar and honey and make sure the meat side is down in the foil. I also build layers of rub during the smoking time by sprinkling on more rub and spritzing with apple juice.

 

Good luck!

Dave, for God sakes it's been about a month since I expressed a thought on the cost of pellet grills. Grow Up! 🙄  Some of the best BBQ in the world comes out of old 55 gal drums. Get over it.

I'm doing pretty much exactly that. We will see what happens.

 

Leech- he's just having a little fun. We all enjoy your company. Have a nice afternoon.😀

I had a feeling you were gonna get an approval from big D on that PF. Sounds good!! I didn't feel like dragging the smoker out in the rain so the big rig had to do. 2 Different hog spices on 10lbs of pork belly for burnt ends 1/2 getting honey and pepper jelly and the other topped with honey and a lousiana bbq sauce while smoked with cherry chunks. Took some baby sitting, but nothing else to do besides have a beer and watch it rain.. Good stuff!

Looks very good. The ribs,otoh didn't turn out so swell. They got pretty dry for whatever reason. I did spray with apple juice before wrapping but maybe I needed sauce in there as well.

You could try cooking at a lower temp next time. 

Too high a temp can yield dry ribs, too low can yield greasy ribs.

How did the burnt ends turn out? I have a pork belly that i want to do just not sure if i should do half in bacon and half burnt ends or do the whole thing in one or the other

What temp did you cook at?

How long did you smoke?

How long did you foil?

How long was the total cook?

 

Never heard of dry ribs on a smoker before.

Not sure of the size of belly you have their otterman,  but 10lbs of burnt ends made a bunch. The ends turned out mint, the fat melting at 200 , I sure did like the pepper jelly honey combo, the bbq sauce honey seemed a bit much with all the seasoning that was put on but all in all we chowed and the boys at work gobbled the rest up.  I'll definitely do again, as far as makin bacon do what you gotta do but I usually hit that hard in the cold weather months,  cold smoking reasons.

180 for 2 hours

225 for one hour

Foiled

225 for 2 hours

Unwrapped.

225 for 1 hour.

 

I also cooked the trim from the ribs and that seemed pretty good. Not sure what in hell I did. No big deal.

    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • What is this?
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite. 
    • Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.
