    Tomahawks. Three at about 2 1/4 pound each.
    One hour on the Egg @ 275-300, indirect. Removed them, wrapped the ribs, took the Ceramic Shield out of the smoker and cranked it up to 600. About 90 seconds each side.

    I always thought it this cut as more for the visuals than the taste but these were incredible, and not overly difficult. Will probably do them again over the holidays when the in-laws visit.

    Recently got my self a pellet smoker so I have been learning the craft. Some wins and some not so much.


    1st attempt was some mouth watering ribs. I wrapped them for a bit during cooking and will try it without wrapping next time.


    2nd attempt include a whole chicken*, section of pork loin, 4 steaks, 2 slabs of Black Drum and 12 bacon wrapped scallops. Every thing was taken out at different times. *I know, cooking the chicken above other things will very likely cause me to die a terrible death.


    I wasn't a big fan of the smoke flavor with the steak and the fish would have been MUCH better blackened. Live and learn


    Still working to see if I can ever get crisp skin after a slow smoke.


    The pork loin was cooked Great but the rub (basically Paprika) SUCKED.


    I crisped the bacon over a very hot grill for a minute or so after smoking and these were GREAT.

    Never use somebody's packaged rub. Get good fresh spices and screw around with stuff and find your own palette. My typical starts with cumin, coriander, cardamom and turmeric and riffs from there. Brown sugar to make it stick and whatever pepper profile I think fits. Garlic and onion powder always works.. Nutmeg, allspice and other goofy stuff will make an appearance. Dry mustard adds good notes. Then you can get into dry lemon and other strange things.

    On the fish, when smoking I have always preferred an oily fish.

    For instance, when pan cooking bluefish I always skin the filet and cut out the grey/brown section of meat because that is where the oils from the bunker the fish eats get stored. That turns bluefish into a delightful white fish.

    But when smoking it, I leave that “oil repository” in and it turns it into a delightful smoked fish.

    I think drum may be not oily enough for smoking heavily. But that may also just be my tastebuds.
    If I knew what I was doing, Id be doing it right now

    True that. I have a great family recipe that I use but I had ran out of it doing the ribs. Thought I would try something new and something on sale. Should have done exactly as you describe.

    I kind of figured that when I was smoking the Drum but thought I would try. It is still pretty good as a "tune salad" meat and I also played around with a spread that came out ok. Salmon with skin on will be the next victim.


    Tonight will give Jerky Beef a try.

    Have made this 'brothless ramen' a few times now and it's BANGING!!! There's noodles under all the toppings I promise haha.



    This is the 'base' recipe I followed. One big change - we used way less sauce than they say. We used three servings of ramen, not just a single serving. We did it on accident the first time, but it works, you get the flavor but it's not overpowering (the sauce is pretty highly concentrated, a little goes a long way) :: https://www.seriouseats.com/xo-mazemen-recipe

    Easy XO sauce recipe here (I couldn't find canned scallops so used all canned tiny shrimp) :: https://inthekitch.net/easy-xo-sauce...rJFzXxM#recipe

    How to cook the egg (I didn't do the broth, just cooked it in the sous vide and then chilled them) :: https://www.seriouseats.com/onsen-ta...ked-egg-recipe

    As for 'toppings', here's what we've been using:
    pork tenderloin sliced about pencil thin, cooked with some 'Japanese BBQ sauce' I found at the grocery store and use sesame oil instead of olive oil (this is the exact sauce)
    Egg
    Roasted asparagus
    Snow peas (sauted in the same pan the pork was cooked in)
    matchstick carrots
    radishes
    kimchi
    green onion

    My pellet smoking journey continues. Today did a small turkey and some butternut squash.

    Good, crispy skin!!



    Maybe better than sweet potatoes.
