AST, you should auction off a catered bbq dinner for 4 arty Fatty Fest.

I think this is a splendid idea but the logistics are shitty as I reside in Dallas and will be nowhere near Fatty Fest and am only scheduled to be in Kansas 4 days this summer, all spent at a remote private lake near La Cygne

would be hard for me to hold up to my end of the bargain unless the winner resides or wanted the payoff in the metro

hyvee should have solid quality.  Does MHK have a sams?

No. Salina or Topeka.

a Packer might be over my head anyway.

T-Y


no.  like ast said, packers are easier.  flats suck balls.

Here is some cheese I cold smoked today.  There is cheddar, Colby, and Pepper Jack.  I'm getting ready to vacuum seal it so that it can be enjoyed on the 4th of July. Has anyone does cheese before?

That looks yummy!  I have done some but the total amount does not equal what you have in that one picture.

My Dad has one that he got from Cabelas.  His taste in food isn't traditional BBQ, so it's tough for me ti judge.  The convenience seems great.

If I were buying a new one and had a $500+ budget, I'd go Traeger.

Clams works wonders on the Egg, and the Weber Smokey Mountain is also a miracle machine, but Traegers are just so easy....perfect for the busy, yet lazy.

I've used electric smokers before with lots of luck. Super convenient, pretty fool proof, and lots of room.

Did fajitas for 100 today, finally got my fajita recipe dialed in.  I've never been a huge fan of fajitas, would rather eat other stuff but since I've been asked to make them so much lately, I went ahead and gave it some effort to be awesome

this recipe is for 12-15 lbs of meat, so adjust accordingly; it also works equally well for beef or chicken, that is until I get my pechuga gravy nailed for the chicken

2 C Soy Sauce

2 C Worcestershire

1 C Pineapple Juice

1 C Fresh squeezed lime juice

1 Bunch cilantro, chopped

10 Garlic cloves, minced

5 Minced serrano peppers (leave seeds in if you want to bring the heat)

2 Tbsp Cumin

2 Tbsp Black pepper

1 Tbsp Ground mexican oregano

1 Tbsp Salt

1 tsp Cayenne

1 tsp Paprika

Mix ingredients in a plastic or stainless steel bowl, then let meat marinade for 2 hours,  put meat directly on grill, sprinkle with salt and pepper, flip one time, sprinkle with salt and pepper

Soy sauce seems pretty gross in a marinade for fajitas.

Has anyone does cheese before?   

Yes.  I've done cheddar, gouda, and mozzarella.  On my wsm at 80-85 degrees for about an hour.

I really wanted to smoke some Gouda but was unable to find any at Dillions.  Maybe next time.  Also I smoked mine for almost 3 hours.  Everything I read says 3 is the magic number.  Why do you only go an hour?  Is the smoke flavor to strong?  I hope I didn't mess mine up on my first attempt.

You probably didn't mess anything up.  I had done some research on smoking cheese on virtualweberbullet.com and they suggested smoking from 1/2 to 1 hour due the the fat in cheese being very efficient in picking up smoke flavors.  I don't know.  My cheeses ended up pretty smokey, but not overpoweringly so.  Try some and find report back.
