Feeding the addiction...

  1. So, today is my third go with my smoker... I'm doing brisket, salmon and whole onions.

    I couldn't get a whole brisket, so I have three <2 pound flats. I seared one of them to see what all the fuss is about and to do a taste comparison. My gas grill is a hunk o' junk, and I couldn't really get my griddle hot enough for a perfect searing, so mine is probably only half as seared as Smokie Okie says to make it.

    My rub was a combo of seasoned salt, celery salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, white pepper, a sprinkling of sugar and distilled white vinegar (after the rub was applied). I'm smoking with hickory.

    My mop is bacon, onions, beef broth, vegetable oil, lemon zest/juice, fresh thyme, salt and pepper.

    For the Salmon, I'm only seasoning with salt, pepper and lemon zest.

    The onions are in their skins, cut so the bottoms and tops are flat, drizzled with vegetable oil, seasoned with seasoned salt, and topped with two FAT pats of real butter!

    Oh boy! This sure is fun!

    For a good sear you will need a charcoal grill. That's so the fat can melt down and become a blaze that should singe ya bald![​IMG]

    Trust me, When you get a good sear you will know what all the fuss is about!

    Third times the charm! well, it's been a charm anyway right! Sounds like your gonna have some full happy bellies![​IMG]

    I got so wrapped up in that BIG DAWG win over the bugs from the North Avenue Trade School, that I neglected to take pics...

    The reviews were great! I really enjoyed doing the brisket and the salmon. I REALLY enjoyed the smoked whole sweet onions though! These weren't Vidalias, but the tasted really great! They'd be fun with almost anything! Melted in your mouth!

    I like onions myself on the smoker. I use onions to hold my thermometers instead of taters then you've got nice smoked onions to slice into your gravy or slice for on top of a nice sandwich! Yummmmmmmmm
