Iron Mike has been killing the smoking thread for a while. Some good weather and finally a little spare time, so I thought I'd bring my game...

 

My big smoker bit the dust some time ago, so I put together a small charcoal model I got as a gift a few years back,

I know it might be sacrilege to some, but I prefer using electric smokers because I rarely have time to properly tend to charcoal, So I bought an electric element and with a few mods, I'm in business!

I usually like Mesquite, but had some Hickory leftover,so Hickory it will be....

Now it will go on the smoker just before midnight tonight after I dust it a little with some seasoning. By lunch time tomorrow it will be primo!  One catch however...

 

I will pre-stage tongs, pans and aluminum foil and one of two things will happen...

 

1. I come home for lunch tomorrow, take some pics to share here, then take food to work and make folks happy.

 

2. I have to go on a fugitive run, will call someone to come get it, in which case I will get neither pics or food. And again someone will be happy... I will be happy too, just not as happy as them!

 

fingers crossed.....

"Never the same recipe twice"

 

The ONLY way to BBQ lol. It's not baking.

 

Whatever sauce or rub is on hand plus beer is the marinade. Whatever sauce I'm in the mood for, the sauce.

Not this time haha!  just used that bottle because it was open already, could've been any of many, just always use some in the brine, more ritualistic than anything... can't ever really discern the flavor, but I do it as an offering to the smoking Gods......

Getting late and near bed time. Gotta figure the final piece and let it rip. The dust....

My first try actually.. wet finger taste on all three... my gums are bleeding.. all are good but I can't feed them to the masses, they won't appreciate it.  Great God, feels like I've been to the Dentist, hard to catch my breath.. Commercial this time..... results pending.

yum  :shocked:   

 

how were the hens ?

 

Did you get to eat them or were they enjoyed by someone else ?

 

i havent had smoked hens in a while 

sooo good, then the carcass can be used to start the makings of a good soup too  :drooling:

 

coupla pics i could find of the last time we smoked some game hens, among other things

 

zbS7dNG.jpg zHjZB2F.jpg

fresh from the garden tomatoes and lettuce, and fresh off the smoker bacon, for BLT's  while waiting for the hens and ribs. There's a smoked Aji Amarillo there too  :drooling:

Delicious compact game hens on the right there  :drooling:  :drooling:

Ribs slathered in mustard then rubbed down with some of my bbq rub, and brushed with Lucky Dog :hotsauce: brown label there on the left, some plain smoked ribs :rolleyes: ,and Swedish sausage there too  :drooling:

Thanks. It seems to run between 220 and 232 degrees. A recent build and the element is non-adjustable, so I'm kinda feeling it out. Happy so far, just wish it were bigger....
