Can anyone spot the nosehair on the chicken leg?

AS luck would have it, that was the smallest one and got fed to the dog.
But I DID take a bite out of it before I stripped it and fed it to the dog,
so I could have eaten it, or the dog could have eaten it. I think it's better
that I don't REALLY know.

Just pulled these out of the smoker.



Local supermarket had wild caught sockeye on sale, so I picked up these two filets. Did a 3 day dry cure (salt/sugar/black pepper/fennel seed/coriander seed). I was going to just leave it at that, but decided I wanted a smoke flavor too. Too hot to do a cold smoke, so I hot smoked them for nearly 4 hours. Wow, the flavor is unreal. As they cool down it gets even better.

Got two chicken halves seasoned up and in the smoker for over an hour now. Looking good. Going to finish in a bit on the grill to crisp the skin and serve some grilled corn along side. Pics to follow.

The finished product. Should've shot the pic before I threw on the grill. The skin was more mahogany and hadn't pulled back. Still tasted damn good.

Yeah, but 'mahagony skin not pulled back' is so rubbery that I'd take it like this 100 times out of a hundred.

If you find a dead hooker or my watch that I lost 3 years ago, please let me know.


Unless you find both, then I don't know you.



From a few days ago - 2-1/2 lb chuck that I picked up on the cheap, coated with a garlic paste (mix soy sauce, worcestershire, lots of garlic powder and some rub together, apply with a 4" drywall taping knife or bondo spreader) placed in the smoker later that afternoon w/ walnut and cherry wood. Temps were around 280-300 degrees, so I sliced it up rather than pulling it.

Made for a nice faux-brisket sandwich & leftovers.

There is nothing in my freezer, lol. I won't lie, I'd take a hooker or a watch. Sad though, I thought I might use
the last "cool" weekend of the summer to cook a bit. Mid 90's, a veritable chill-fest. And only 75 overnight.
Brrrr.
I need to look harder.

8 lb boneless shoulder, rubbed, injected, tied up tight. I ran her at 230-250F for nearly 8 hours until the center read 188F. I also mopped her down 3 different times with some secret sauce (sweet, spicy, and addictive). We ate nearly 3 hours ago and I am still full!

Also, killed 2 cigars and half a dozen assorted brews while guarding the grill. I figured since it was the last day of my vacation, what the heck.

Default Re: What's in your smoker?

The only thing I don't like about a shoulder like that is that half of that mind-blowing bark is inedible by humans.
My dog will eat the pig skin, but instead of savoring it off in a corner somewhere he likes to wolf it down in one
scarfy swallow. I guess it's the age-old get it down before someone steals it mentality.

This "bark" is essentially thick sauce cooked to a deep brown color. It's got a great smoke ring and the bark is quite edible (some stiffness to the tips). I shredded it all together so each bite has a little outer and inner meat. Actually eating some for lunch right now. Uummmm...

My bark is almost always 100% edible. No skin, just a thin fat-cap that mostly melts away during the 14-17 hr smoke.

Default Re: What's in your smoker?

There was a semi thick upper section. I removed the vast majority of it this time. It was heavily marbled, so I figured it would be fat enough. Just peeped in the frig and grabbed few end pieces. It won't last long in my house. The kids also love it.
