#1569785 Growdown Throwdown 2018 Yellow Brain Strain!

Posted by NeedsWork on 20 July 2018 - 12:09 PM

These are really tasty pods.  Thick flesh.  I get lots of juice / fruitiness up front.  Then the super hot / yellow citrus flavor.  Burn starts at the front of my mouth / tip of my tongue.  It moves pretty quickly to my whole mouth but doesn't get my throat.  The burn lingers for a good bit of time mid mouth but isn't overwhelming.

So it begins.... 

 

My clumsy (self) knocked a green one off.  Hopefully I can still count it.  ;)

 

Edit:  Side note, they are extra tasty.  I ate the whole thing raw on some chicken and veggies.  I love yellow supers.

#1564420 Smoked pork butt!

Posted by NeedsWork on 01 July 2018 - 04:49 PM

 Results from yesterday.  The cook went from 4:30am - 6:30pm.  The smoker temp ranged between 225 - 250F.  The stall took forever it seemed.  I ended up wrapping it.  I didn't get any glamour photos because everyone was hungry.

Posted by NeedsWork on 29 June 2018 - 10:14 PM

I started late but smoke started rolling on the drum at 10:30. I smoked a butt and some Pterodactyl wings injected with a mix of coke, apple juice and Cajun Injector Cajun Butter then used rub I made.

 

Wow that looks tasty!  Now I am hungry!  :drool:

 

 

 

Bath for 24 hours then rub a few minutes ago.  It will go on around 3-4 ish.  I'm going to inject right before it goes on with my usual.  I'm using my previous recipe because family is visiting tomorrow.

Hope all is well pepper people!

What a difference a large pot makes :rolleyes: :shh:

 

This gal got her ass handed to her in a 60mph storm last week. She seems to have recovered well...

 

:eek:  Wow!!  She is beautiful!

 

I'm hoping a recent cold spell kicks mine into production.

Weekly check in.  The weather had been pepper friendly.   :)

I'm a bad friend for not posting progress sooner.

 

Here is the D3 corner of my garden (A1-D3).  I was hoping to have more - but I've just had a rough start to the year.  Just when you think you have pepper growing down, Uncle Murphy stops by.

#1556122 Smoked pork butt!

Posted by NeedsWork on 27 May 2018 - 02:43 PM

Finished product.  I can tell that I rushed it by pushing the temps.  The brazing liquid reduced into a great sauce!   

 

Almost no heat.  Very mild flavor, pork forward, rub middle, and smoke finish.

The butt went on at 5am.  After the four hour mark, I decided to try a brazing liquid like Mike's: http://thehotpepper....-smoker/page-13

Nice!


Thanks! Rub was a little salty for my taste but everyone else liked it.
