I started off Sunday with a Tri Tip, ABT's and Jamaican Jerk Sausage smoked in Apple Wood. I've been focused on trying to learn how to use a smoker, that I haven't put the time into learning how to make the rubs, or how much to use on the meat. Here's my assistant making sure I didn't leave anything in the dish Smokin After about 5 hours The final product The Tri Tip was OK, not the full flavor I wanted. I must not be using enough rub. I'm almost out of Apple wood, but I live in an area surrounded by Almond and Apricot orchards, so I may have to make frinds with a few of the farmers. The ABT's disappeared as quick as the first few came out, and the Sausage tasted good, but I'll try something different next time. I get my sausage from Wolfsens in Gustine, CA. There web address is http://www.wolfsensausage.com/. Any tips you can give me on making my final product, would be appreciated.
