Re: How much smoke do you need?

It's a common rookie mistake to think one needs billowing clouds of smoke pouring out, blotting out the sun and freakin' the neighbors :)

I agree with the others on the thin blue, and find what works for you, if unsure go light, you can always add more next time

Re: Wagyu Beef dealer?

I saw it once. There was a truck at BBQ on the Bow comp in Calgary selling Wagyu a couple of years back.

Try contacting your provincial beef association if you have one ... like Ontario Cattleman's Association ... they should be able to help you out.

Re: Pork question

the simple easy answer is get it on within 2 hours plus you get better smoke ring starting cold as mentioned above ... the full answer is too long, too complex with too many variables to get in to ... I'm still learning about it (when the fit takes me :)) and no expert but here's my $0.02 our safety...

Re: Where to buy charcoal?

Just curious where folks buy their charcoal during the off season. I think that I should have stocked up, since I can't find any at the regular spots? Thanks, Tyler Stocking up is a good idea ... I usually grab all the Royal Oak Plus briqs I can get when my Wal-Mart blows them out for $4/18lb bag. ...

Re: Charcoal and winter?

Chimneys work very well. With or without the chimney parafin fire starter cubes are a good alternative to newspaper. Weber makes odourless non-toxic ones that are around $7/24, parafin sawdust cubes are larger and around $5/24. With a Weber chimney I break a parafin starter cube in half, put them un...

Re: Curing product?

I was able to find Tender Quick easy enough but had a hard time finding Prague Powder.

If you can't find it locally you can order online from Edmonton based Halford Hide, view online catalog, Butcher's Supplies. They have lots of great stuff.

350ºF Butt

I finally tried a HH pork butt and the results were great! As good PP as any I've made. The butt was ~8lbs, nicely trimmed, still a nice fat cap on it. http://i715.photobucket.com/albums/ww154/shawnwBBQ/2009%20HH%20Butt/th_2009-09-15007.jpg http://i715.photobucket.com/albums/ww154/shawnwBBQ/2009%20H...

Re: Difference between 225 and 250?

225ºF works better for smaller cuts IMHO, like baby backs when I do big cuts like packers, pulled beef or pork shoulder I've been getting great results by going hotter, like 275ºF I don't usually foils butts but I do foil beef shoulder/chuck around 160ºF and in the oven at 225ºF until it's falling a...

Re: Help With Smoking a Turkey

Here's one for your consideration, I came up with it myself, and am really proud of it. Flavor came through in this better than any other flavor brine I have tried. It's a Cajun brined, skinless rubbed bird. You get a nice crust on the outside and the white meat is great but the dark meat seems to g...

Re: Pork Butt versus Pork Shoulder for Pulled Pork

I prefer butts for the reasons mentioned above, but I can often get picnics from Sobeys at $0.99/lb. Reg retail on butts is $4/lb. Cooking for the family, tt those prices I'll take picnics every time.
