Decided to start a thread for all the FOOD I smoke.
I'll start it off with a couple butts. One was marinated in space ghost chili beer. Turned out excellent. I used a little cocopowder and coffee in the dry rub to accentuate the beers flavors worked out really nice.

Ah nothing special. Traeger knock off.
Pitboss 820d. Works ok but needs a few upgrades. Gasket around door. And I should invest in a better controller. There are some pretty large temp swings at times.

Heard a guy describe smoking with wood pellets/electric/propane as "it's like kissing your sister, it's just wrong"

I prefer charcoal or wood, but your results are awesome! Those look fantastic, I really like the sounds of those rubs.

I used some fiberglass wood stove gasket for my smoker, worked really well to seal it up. RV silicone is pretty good for the smoke chamber too but not the fire box. I was worried about the silicone off gassing or making a bad taste in the meat but never had an issue.

Ha. lol. More like smokin hot step sister by marriage.
I hear ya though man, I always used hardwood lump charcoal and chips for years. This is my first pellet smoker. But I'll tell ya the reason I decided to go this route. A buddy got a new traeger. Invited me over to hang. Showed me his new toy. I gave the guy shit all day. We hung out had few beers. Then we ate ribs and chicken that he'd been smoking all day. Not only was it super juicy but they had amazing smoke flavor and penetration. Good as mine or better not that I told him. But then I remembered, he hung out all day. Never hadda go fiddle with the smoker. Add more chips or check the temps. Didn't have to adjust a baffle or wrap the meat. Just relax and let the grill do the work. I was sold. But I can't afford a traeger. Found this on sale. Super glad I got it.

I can respect that for sure, those are the reasons I love smoking meat. It turns into a social event, have a few beers shoot the shit and have fun, and then a great meal!

Wood pellets are still cheating though :P

Guessing you're a millennial or younger?

Wood pellets ARE wood. Electric and propane are heat sources to make wood smoke. Trust me, I'm very familiar with the all day smokes where you and maybe a buddy or two "watch the fire" on your offset while drinking beer or bourbon. Great times. But when you have kids, drinking all day is not a cool look. So some people actually use the technology available to make equally great bbq without taking your time away from your kids.

Enjoy good food. Don't be a cooking method Nazi.

If you are looking for a better controller the one from Louisiana Grills is fairly accurate and doesnt have large temp swings. Louisiana grill is also the parent company of pit boss. Differences between their grills is thinkness of the steel used and controller, other than that almost identical designs.

I have one and dont ever let someone tell you their traeger is better because I came from a traeger and upgraded to this because of the many more things I can do like sear. Traeger claims to sear but it cant, no open flame like what you can do.

Been looking at controllers. Thinking about this one. Gives alot of options and has ability to upgrade.
https://smokedaddyin...-grill-upgrade/

Looking at that site I probably should have just bought one of his setups and I would be ahead. Already has controller, they're made with heavier Gage steel and not it's not a mass produced product.
BTW that looks like a really nice setup. But probably pretty spendy too huh?

Country style chops.
Basted with a ginger garlic spicy szechuan, marinated overnight, then dry rubbed. They got about 4hrs of apple wood/hickory smoke @250°f then braised for 1hr in applesauce, cider vinegar, Porter vinegar, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce.

Also threw on some boneless loin cut ribs after 3hrs. They got the basting and a little dry rub and tossed in the braising sauce but not cooked in it.

Finally got around to making scorpion/reaper eggs. I think they are better with fresh peppers but I just used dried, they will still be awesome.

The method I have settled with, is to hard boil the eggs, then peel, dry rub, and cold smoke them for a few hours.

I'm adamant that the brine must be a 50/50 ratio with vinegar and a water based liquid. if a higher amount of vinegar is used the eggs become rubbery.

For the dry rub I used

cure

garlic powder

black pepper

celery salt

paprika

cayenne powder

The brine

1.5C white vinegar

1.5C ACV

3C water

salt

the spices I never measure

pickling spice

dill

peppercorns

mustard seed

crushed red peppers-reapers/scorpions

Firecrack sauce

accompaniments for the eggs include

2 heads of hard neck garlic with cloves splint in half

1 clove of elephant garlic shaved thin

several jalapenos thick cut rings

2 small/medium onions cut into thick rings.
