Hello smokers

  1. Thanks for letting me be part of gastronomic blog. I asked Santa for a MES and, lucky for me, he shoe horned one down the chimney and under the tree. So far I've smoked a Boston But, a turkey wrapped in Fresh Market bacon (the best), 4 dozen ABTs (also wrapped in bacon). Today, I smoked some spare ribs based on a recipe from Aaron Franklin's BBQ Meat Smoking Manifesto. Prior to the MES, I would occasionally smoke my charcoal grill ( high,high maintenance. Well that's it from Semi sunny South Florida.

    Thanks, James

  5. Thanks AL, I actually graduated from Fort Lauderdale High. If you remember Jacks Old Fashion Hamburgers, I worked there during my school and college years.
  6. Thanks MB Below is my first attempt at spare ribs. They came out nice n tender, but not much smokiness. Which is prompting me to mod my MES. I used iDevices remote thermoprobe to monitor temperature for craps and giggles.

    Those ribs look awful good from here.

    Sometimes when you are smoking something like ribs and your around the smoke all day, it desensitizes you to the smoke.

    The best way to tell if you had it right is save some for the next day.

    I guarantee you they will taste smokey.

    And yes! Of course I remember Jacks! Awesome burgers!

  10. That is so true. I didn't realize that until you said it. My first smoke I thought my ribs could have used more smoke. I tasted them the next day and they were kick a** ribs!!
