Weekend Trifecta

Started with my first attempt at bacon. Cured for 11 days. Rinsed and smoked at 180 with pecan, thought I put in hickory until I looked at the bag this morning.  Flame boss 300 held it rock solid. Took about 5 hours to get to 150.  Ended up a bit of a fail. Too salty. Should have soaked after rinsing. May also need to adjust salt amount in cure. Learning experience. 

Next up was brisket and salmon for my son and his friends from college. Smoked with a Hickory/pecan mix at 250. Mama Bird made cheesy potatoes, baked beans, corn bread and Texas sheet cake to round out the meal. All gone. No leftovers. They all get to start the new semester with full bellies. 

Awesome weekend. Good thing Mama Bird and I ran this morning. Otherwise it would have been a 5 pound add day.

    It all looks terrific including your outdoor kitchen
  • Nice of you to feed the gang. I’m guessing they will be back very soon. From the looks of the (empty) fine china I’d say everything was a hit.
