    Baked macaroni and cheese, 1lb noodles, 4lbs cheese lol.

    I'd put a little more foil or a big baking sheet underneath. I overfilled some au gratin potatoes once and made a god awful mess. Good luck!

    Ok I just watched the Full recipe and the last 3 minutes are pretty funny.
    seriously that looks Ridiculously cheesy!
    I don’t think I would try to cook that unless I tried it first or consulting my doctor.
    But I would like to try it.

    Edit: Also Kerrygold butter is awesome as stated in the recipe.

    It’s cheesy as hell. Also has very good flavor with the different seasonings in it.

    Quoted from romulusx:

    All you need is love,and a Weber Kettle.Do you use the slow and sear or the Vortex for wings and stuff?I offset cook and smoke alot

    I do not have either but am interested in the Slow N Sear. I usually use the snake method for smoking and plan on doing pork butt this weekend. Love pulled pork.

    The butter that you put on top, did overflow. Thankfully the aluminum foil caught it.

    A mate dropped in and gave me a brined belly from a pig he grew and slaughtered. Yippee, 15lb of bacon coming up. Spose i better save him a slice. If i could have fit it in i could have had a brined ham even bigger he brought with him, too big for my home built smoker.

    Thats one of the traditional norwegian christmas meats right there. Not in form of bacon though, but as a roast with really crispy skin. Mmm.

    The Slow n Seer is a better bang for your buck.I use mine for everything from chicken breast to brisket.The water reservoir last up to 7 hours.

    Lots of ways to use a belly including that, but this is off an older (large) pig. The leg was about 12-15kg.

    Not tonight. This was just a quick meal for me and the fiancé. When I do a full hibachi, I bring it. Spinning eggs, twirling utensils, smiley face fire, volcano, and tossed shrimp!

    Atta boy. I’m a sucker for sake and the unhealthiest dinner you can possibly make. Would crush that teriyaki steak btw, looks delicious.

    Quoted from cdnpinballer:

    Thanks! They turned out great.
    I used this recipe. Instead of Salt I added 1/2 teaspoon of the pictured Cavender’s Greek seasoning. Restaurant quality souvlaki with that stuff.
    https://www.food.com/recipe/pork-souvlaki-39526
    I also made some Tzatziki with sour cream because I didn’t have any Greek yogurt in stock.

    Belly is coming along. Cabinet temp is a rock solid 68C and core temp on the meat is already 47C (aiming for 68C). I'd forgotten how quick bacon goes.

    Started the smoke about 7 hours ago with rum soaked french oak sticks, switched to pecan wood about an hour ago and will stop the smoke in a couple hours.

    Tell me more about your homebuilt smoker? How do you handle the temperature control? Its electrical, yes?

    Ive built a few hot smokers / bbq through the years, and been thinking about doing something for cold smoking. Lots of delicious stuff that could be cold smoked.

    It's the third or fourth one i've built, i used to sell a lot of Jerky so kept building ones that could hold more. This one has 5 stainless shelves or i can hang sausage on dowels. It has three separate controls, one for the extraction fan on the back (used only with jerky) one for the bottom element in the box beloow the main box where the smoke is generated by putting sticks directly on the hotplate, and one for the pie warmer element in the cabinet to control the cab temp.

    Hmm. Send me some jerky

    So, basically, if we try to make it more easy, you use one temperature controlled element for smoke and one for maintaining smoker box temperature? How does these interact? Or is it more like "getting to know how to use it"?

    #633 1 year ago

    I don't do jerky anymore, the topside i used to use is $15 a kilo rather than the $6 a kilo it was by the box full back then. Yes, that's the principle. It went in the fridge last night when i went to bed (was about 50ish degrees) and then back in the smoker at 4am this morning.

    I have the smoke generating part switched off now (had 7 or 8 hours of oak followed by pecan smoke so enough), the fan off and i'm controlling one element to keep the cab temp below 70ish. Just want the bacon to reach a food safe temp of over 66C now.

    It's just a matter of learning how to drive it, like a BBQ.

    Good for fish, prawns etc but can smoke everything from nut's to cheese. Smoked salt is a terrific thing to have in your pantry, brings the BBQ taste to even boiled peas.

    This is the last one i made before this model (same principle), here i'm smoking some malt barley to make whiskey.

    Skirt steak again (hey I love skirt) and jerk chicken thighs. Was going to smoke pork shoulders tomorrow but rain all day and I’m sick of cooking in the rain.

    Tried something new today. Pounded out some boneless pork chops. Marinated in pickle juice for 6 hours. Breaded and fried. This is a make again. Next time I am not going to pound them and try grilled.

    +1, I want one @ home! My inlaws have a pro-model gas flattop @ their cabin & I cook on it whenever I get the chance. Made some killer sourdough / buttermilk pancakes last time we where up there. It's amazing how effortless it is to cook on one.

    Yeah, i jumped on the quarantine sourdough bandwagon. Have made some fantastic breads @ home.

    Quoted from djreddog:

    I would look into the Ooni Koda. It’s About $200 cheaper, the flame source looks better on it, it looks dead sexy and will make a bigger pizza.
    The only thing it’s missing is a thermometer. The Rocbox Also comes with a nice aluminum peal but with the money savings on the ooni you can buy a bitching peal from the websturant store online.
    It takes about an hour to heat up the Rocbox properly.

    As a follow up to post # 414 on page 9....

    Picked up this Weber Smokey Mountain today. Fluke thing... I replied to a classified ad and low and behold seller was another local pinhead.

    Now just have to figure out what cut of meat to smoke on it....

    Do any of you have one of these and willing to offer smoking tips?

    cdnpinballer go to https://www.virtualweberbullet.com/ Great source of information and recipies. I have done BRITU (Best Ribs In the Universe) as well as Hot and Fast Chicken. Both are excellent. Looks like you picked up the medium size one (18inch?) After a few uses you will probably start looking at the bigger one (22inch). I have the medium one as well as an electric smoker. They are both great and have their uses. I hope you enjoy it.
