So this has nothing to do with wood work, but Karson’s chickens inspired me to do some last smoking before i move into a condo. So I smoked some pork loins last night for dinner, they turned out well, but I didnt keep quite a good enough eye on them, so they ended up finishing with about 20 minutes of cold smoke, this is not good eats as cold smoke creates WAY too much smoke flavor and not tasty smok, but rather, ya just eww. But my spice rub was good, and once I cut away the tasty crust (not so tasty after the old smoke) the loins were great. All in all it was a good night, of msoked meat too bad I let my fire go out…

-- Cheers

If you want to know how to smoke pork, Shawn, talk with the Texan.

my guess is that the way it turned out has made it a special memory—if it had all went well you would have just remembered it as your last one before the move. Now, not only does it have that special memory but also a story that goes with it.

Shawn:

I’ve kind of settled on a propane version of a smoker for ease of cooking. It’s made by “Great Outdoors Grill Co.” and its their Smoky Mountain Series I’ve attached mine up to the 100 Gal propane tank at my workshop so I don’t have to go fill those pesky propane cylinders. I also hooked up by regular BBQ to the same tank. I don’t get quite as muck smoke as using logs. (I also smoke that way sometimes).

But this one you lite it and come back a few hours later and check everything out. Happy LumberJocksnCook

Today after Church, my brother-in-law/Pastor is going to smoke some meat. Yesterday I cut him up some Hickory, and he uses a pellet grill so the fire only goes out when he shuts it off. He also has lava rock over it so the hickory doesnt catch fire. I’ll tell y’all how it turns out, after we eat. ;)

Obi: Is he using the Hickory as additional smoke or is it being used as the fuel for the pellet grill.

Ask the Texan about a smoked Turkey we enjoyed one Christmas a few years back.
