Infuser Fun!

Decided to give my new Char-Broil Infuser another go.

First I pulled out a couple of center-loin cut pork chops that were seasoned with Penzey's BBQ 3000 before vac sealing and freezing...


Then I loaded the bottom of the infuser with some Maple pellets and some of the wood chips that came with the Infuser. I assume they are Hickory...


Hit the bottom grate with a spray of canola oil and then installed...


I put the infuser on my RED side burner for 5 minutes on high until it started smoking...


Now it was time to drop the chops. I heard a sizzle when they hit the grill of the Infuser!


I flipped them every 5 minutes. After 3 flips they read 140F IT with the world's fastest Thermapen. Here is how they looked...


I then killed the heat on the burner and topped them with Parmesan Cheese and Italian seasoning. Put the Infuser lid back on and waited a few minutes for the cheese to melt a bit...


Wifey is not home tonight so looks like bothe chops are for me! Plated with the Scotch Egg dipping sauce I made for another cook...



Shot of the interior..


These were seriously good! The smokey flavor was simply outstanding! And so fast and simply done on a BBQ grill side burner! Bravo Char-Broil!!!!

Pork Brisket and munchies

I picked up a pork brisket a week or so ago and did not have time to cook it so it went into the freezer. Neighbors were coming over for drinks and apps.
I had no idea what the pork thing was but it seems to be part of the ribs. I coated it with sriracha and Bovine Bold. On the MAK at 225 for 2 hours then bumped to 275.


Prepped some chicken wings (cut them in pieces and used some Kickin' Chicken seasoning

After about 3 hours the pork was looking good so mixed apple juice more sriracha some smoked paprika and chipolte flakes to add to the foil.


Chicken coming along great and made a 7 layer dip with refried beans, green chilis, sour cream, habanero salsa, black beans, Guac and mexican shredder cheese.


Pulled the wings and used 2 different sauces. Garlic hot wing sauce for 1/2 and Hot jerk seasoning for the others. Back on the MAK to set up.

Pulled the pork off at ~200

Pulled it and it was a lot like ribs.. everyone really loved it.. for the cheap price of the meat I will be buying it again for sure.
It was a fun day of cooking and snacking and sampling a bunch of the fall beers. I made cookies and cooked them on the MAK also but got no pics... baby was fussing so priorites changed.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We did :)


County Fair Style Turkey legs & Pierogi Casserole

I haven't been able to smoke anything for a few weeks (was sick and in hospital) so I was itching to do something. How about some turkey legs, you know the kind you get at the county fair that have been brined & cured like ham.

Here we go...

Six turkey Legs - about 5 pounds in all.

Mix some lower sodium brown sugar ham brine (Water, Salt, Brown Sugar, Cure #1) and inject.

Into the fridge to wet cure for 24 hours.

After a 24 hours they were take out of the brine and pat dry.

A light coating of fresh cracked black pepper only, then onto the MAK in smoke mode for about 45 minutes, then crank the heat up to 400°.

Almost done...

Time to add some Apple Crisp for Dessert & some Pierogi Casserole (mashed potatoes, onion & chives layered between lasagna noodles & topped with some cheddar - YUM!).

Since they're dark meat, let them ride and pull at an I.T. of 185°

Ooh La La were these good. Super moist, tender, smoky, hammy goodness with a handle!
Served up with some of the Pierogi Casserole - YUM!

Desert was some hot off the grill Apple Crisp with a glass of cold cider to wash it down.

A satisfying meal to kick off the Fall season!

Thanks for looking! :)

Had a birthday party at the house this weekend. Time for something really quick and easy: thin cut boneless pork chops.

All lined up

Rubbed with my famous Dirt Rub

In the mean time, made a salad with smoked artichokes (also did some corn in the husks)

Two different sauces. One is my Jim's Number 3 Sauce and the other is Sweet Baby Ray's for the gluten free crowd

All plated up

Easy and delicious!
