That’s interesting. I had to look that grill up. It’s similar to the traditional open pit grilling done by Hispanics here except they don’t have a way to raise and lower the grate.

And they aren’t grilling tri-tip, LOL! Cabrito, maybe.

Yep, the adjustable grate sure simplifies heat regulation. Just have to monitor with one hand on the crank and the other on a cold beverage :-).

Looks like Friday and Saturday I will be smoking 50-60lbs of pork butts (shoulder).

Friends have an annual 4th of July Party (cancelled last year, of course). She normally does pork loins in a roaster, but wants to try smoked pork this year. And butts are FAR better than lions when smoking.

So, this will be interesting. I have done 2 at one time, but this will require 5 at a time, twice. In my little 36" Masterbuilt electric smoker.

Wish me luck.

Just to add: pork butts are about the easiest thing in the world to smoke, and get right. So I am not afraid, much.

Our Costco finally started carrying the thick ahi tuna steaks again, yay! These were at east 2 inches thick.

Well, I guess this is searing:

Made a smoked meatloaf last night. A touch too much adobo sauce but turned out tasty.

Pecan smoked ribs, chicken breast and Jalapino poppers.
9 hours. Little dry rub (salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, not sure what else.) from my herb guy on the ribs. Nothing but smoke for the chicken.
Turned out good. Guests enjoyed.20210730_192123_HDR.jpg

Smoked meatloaf looks great. Never tried it. It's on the list to try.

Yay! ‘bout time for some new posts!

Yum - must be baby back ribs.

My brother made some jalapeño poppers using my homemade bacon. Said they were great! Unfortunately I wasn’t there to taste them, but he did send me his recipe.

Yesterday I smoked 20lbs of chuck roast for pulled beef sandwiches. It's for a birthday party on Sunday for a friend. She is Jewish, so pulled pork was off the table.

Nice! I made bœuf bourguignon in the instant pot with my recent chuck roast. Man that is such delicious beef!

But only when cooked right. Low and slow. Had it on the smoke (at 225) for 3.5-4 hours, until it got above 160. Then double wrapped in foil (with a little beef broth added) and back in until about 205.

DW makes the rub. Not sure of everything in it, but looks like almost every spice in the cabinet.

Yeah, I’ve read a couple of recipes, and I’m sure I’ll eventually try it.
