Smoke by Thermoworks

I’m a big fan or Thermoworks. Years ago (maybe 7 now?), I received the Classic Super-Fast Thermapen as a Christmas present. 2-3 second readings, accurate to 0.7F, water resistant. What’s not to like? In all that time, I think I’ve only changed the battery on it once.   About a year ago, I purchased the… Continue reading Smoke by Thermoworks

Not that we… Continue reading Chicken Thighs with a Crabmeat Stuffing

This particular cook turned out fine fantastic if my family is to be believed. It just… Continue reading The Not So Perfect Prime Rib Cook

Slashed Chicken Quarters

     The other week, I was at my brother’s house for dinner. As he was cooking, I noticed his copy of Weber’s Way to Grill that I got him for his birthday last year. It looked like it hadn’t even been opened! So I started paging through it, seeing if anything would catch my eye… Continue reading Slashed Chicken Quarters

Texas Tri-Tip

Texas Tri-Tip      Down here in Texas, we don’t stumble upon tri-tip very often. I’m not sure if it’s a conspiracy with the meat packing industry to ship all available tri-tips to California, or if our butchers just cut it up differently (often times it is ground up into hamburger or cubed up and sold as soup/stew… Continue reading Texas Tri-Tip

Overnight Pork Butt With Auber Instruments Pit Controller

     Last week, we decided that it had been too long since we have done a pork butt. It just seems like we have been too busy lately to do an overnight cook. Either we’re out of town, or I’m working a weekend or something else comes up. As much as we like to do… Continue reading Overnight Pork Butt With Auber Instruments Pit Controller
