Ok, more seafood! We love this time of year. Halibut season opened last Sunday. This fish was swimming yesterday.

Some of the nicest Ahi I've seen. It's a thousand times better fish than last weeks cook.

WP_20130330_001_zps9b3052a6.jpg


It' unseasonably warm here, should be more like 55 degrees, but it's 70 and gorgeous.

Some Desert Gold on the Ahi and sesame seeds. Oops, you'll need to wait for the grilling pic for that!


Halibut I kinda stole from BP, but I put Desert Gold, Mustard and then put on the potato slices. Then sprinked with Hawaiian black salt.

A hot slaw of cabbage, carrots and onion with a little Yoshida's. The leftover potatoes as a tiny side dish.

Time to eat! The entire meal from prep to plate was less than 30 minutes. This is one of the main reasons I love doing seafood on the pellet machine.

Working all week so only chance I had to cook something.
First try at some beef ribs. Wasn't sure how they would turn out so better have a backup.

My family did not do the big traditional turkey or ham dinner this year. Instead we spent the day hanging out and making sushi. Living in a small town in a landlocked area means that getting my hands on sushi grade fresh fish is mighty difficult. Enter pellets!

Friday night I got started by brining some walleye in a green tea brine for an hour then smoking it with some maple pellets and green tea leaves. Oh yeah I also cleaned my Traeger up that after noon.
Ohhh shiney!

And the fish.

Saturday I thought we were having the family over to our place but we wound up going to my moms instead. They have my old gasser so I took some pellets with me.
006-7_zpsa8bbbc33.jpg


While the old rig was warming up I toasted my nori.
008-5_zpsba7acfd3.jpg


Once I had it toasted I added my smoke pouch and cranked the heat. Once it was good and hot I put on some skewers of shrimp and some scallops along with my smoked walleye and a couple pieces of chicken.

I cooked it all fairly fast and dirty so it didn't catch as much smoke as I was hoping for. But here it is off the grill.

I had great intentions of getting some pics as we rolled our sushi up but it did not happen. Turns out it is a messy job making this stuff. Here is what we wound up with.

It was a fun way to spend time with the family. And it did not hurt that everything turned out so well. Thanks for looking guys.

Prep for Easter

This year for Easter I decided I was going to cure and smoke the ham for the our ever-enlarging family get tgether. This started two weeks ago with the brining and curing the leg of pork and then into the smoker for the 36 hr. smoking process.

The ham in the Bradley ready to smoke. The smoke generator crapped out right at the start, so I loaded up the AMAzen pellet smoker with BD maple and apple pellets for 6 hrs. of smoke.
smokedham2.jpg

After 36 hrs. and IT of 145F. Now off to the fridge for a few days wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and foil.
smokedham.jpg

The ham is now in the UDS getting cooked for the big meal. It sure do smell good! More to follow.....
Well, everyone was starving, so I had to carve the ham before I snapped a picture. Here's one side completely gone.
008-3.jpg

The plated selection of the feast clockwise from top: ham, sour cream cucumber salad,strawberry/almond/ basil salad, cheese and red pepper latkas, scalloped taters, center-scalloped green bean casserole.
009-2.jpg

And for dessert, your choice...white chocolate raspberry swirl cheesecake or pistachio cake.Mmmm
Apparently the home cured ham was a success. I've been appointed the head hambone for life.:rolleyes:

Enjoy! We sure did.

I think I cook something special but someone here always does something over the top. Great motivator looking at some of these cooks. But like RickB said free money. Just put in an order yesterday and getting all kinds of goodies.
