Who Is Smoking What This Weekend?

While my pork belly continues to cure for next weekend's planned cold smoke (bacon project here: https://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1216469/cold-smoked-bacon-project#latest), I've got ambitious plans this weekend . . .

-- buy 2 or 3 sides of salmon today, start the cure tonight, cold smoke for lox on Sunday
-- Buy and smoke cheese so it can rest and mellow a bit before Thanksgiving (cheddar, gouda, mozz . . . others??)
-- Nuts, too, which I find do well with a bit of time to mellow.  Thinking about some bulk almonds.

What are others planning?  Share some inspiration, will ya?
It's a 302 thing . . .

  • Us Canadians will be smoking whatever we damn-well please. 

    In seriousness, was thinking of sous-viding a two month wet aged brisket staring tomorrow, to be kissed with smoke and eaten on Sunday. Looking forward to it.

    This book. Smoked baked ham.

    And this book. Bourbon and bacon sweet potatoes. 


    Going to to watch my Cowboys get beaten badly by the cheaters from Norman, but hey, I’m used to it and the food and company will be good.

    If you’re doing an APL recipe, be sure to take some time off work for the cook. 

    Joking of course, but although delicious, his recipes are quite time-intensive, in my experience.

    Yes they are, but this one doesn't seem too bad.  I haven't tried the ham before, but he hasn't let me down yet and don't expect it here either.

    @The Cen-Tex Smoker what rig gets the brisket for the class??  And you are so right-every friggin cow exercise is a learning adventure.  Always a great time. 
    I'm firing up some of those Denver lamb ribs (steered by @bgebrent) on Sunday.  Saturday is a motoring few hours- hopefully no law-enforcement interactions.

    I'm doing it in a bge to keep it simple. It's a BGE class but of course the cook is done at home. Thought about breaking out the dishwasher but don't feel like babysitting.

    BGE for the win! Class is at 4 (have to be there at 3). Brisket was smallish (10lbs before trim) so I couldn't roll overnight. Trimmed the brisket, put it back in the fridge and fired up the egg at midnight. Got it set somewhere close to 250 and went to bed. Got up at 5, egg was locked in at 225 (it's pretty cold outside down here). Bumped the temp a tiny bit, rubbed the brisket, put it on at 5:15 and got 2 more hours of sleep. Woke up and the egg was 280 (fine in my book) and the brisket was chugging along. Sitting in the stall now but in perfect shape to hit desired target to get to class on time. I can slow roll it or speed it up as needed. i'll look at it around 1 to see how I need to finish it up. The egg sure makes it easy...

    I just pulled some deer sausage, homemade italian sausage, and some deer steaks out of the freezer.  I think I'm going to run the steak through the grinder and mix it all up and make a meatloaf.

    @The Cen-Tex Smoker I need to find an excuse to come to one of those classes. Sounds like fun.

    This SOB will not finish up. 188 and crawling up. Have it wrapped and cranked to 350. TFJ had to
    leave without me to get set up. I’ll be coming in hot right before the bell! 

    I think i read  something on here about the friggin cow driving the cook or something like that.

  • Well I ended up with a pork tenderloin stuffed with prosciutto, blue cheese crumbles and honey and raging river rub.
     Unfortunately when I got home from town it was at 200 so we will see what happens but I may need to heat some tortillas  ;)
