    Two Deer Processed - Lots-o-pics!

    Talk about the new MAK getting a workout... I'm on a list of people for the police to call when there's been a deer-related accident and they have to put an injured deer down. It's all kept legit with the kill being reported to the Ohio DNR, Div. of Wildlife, and the deer are as fresh as if...

    Combo Beef Rib Cook on the MAK

    I'd been wanting some beef ribs, so the wife checked the freezer and we had a pack of beef back ribs and a pack of 2 good sized beef short ribs. I looked at them and thought, "What the heck, I'll cook 'em both up!" I sliced the short ribs in half so they were the same thickness as the back...

    Resurection Sunday Dinner on the MAK

    The last few years we've enjoyed boneless leg of lamb roasts done on the MAK, so it was requested this year by the Mrs. Being a smart man, I said, "Yes dear!" ;) My favorite way to treat a lamb roast is a simple rub down with some spicy brown mustard, then a liberal sprinkling of salt, course...

    Deer Harvest, Processing & Sausage!

    This year I decided to make a homemade ham as well as roast a leg of lamb roast on the new MAK 1 Star for a family Easter get together over at my Mom's house. Dinner was scheduled for 4:30 P.M., so the ham needed to come out of the brine and go on early so it had plenty of time to smoke...
