JJ's au jus questions

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by whatamess, Jun 11, 2014.

  1. I'm doing a prime rib this weekend for Father's Day and I want to make ChefJJ's au jus, wondering if 6 cups of liquid in the smoker is going to give me problems with keeping AMNPS lit?  I have never used water in the smoker yet.  Does anyone heat the broth before dumping in pan in the smoker to keep temps up?

    Typically the Au Jus will be above the AMNPS.  Airflow should send the moisture up towards the vent and not have an impact on the AMNPS.  I haven't had any problems in my electric "ECB"

    I haven't heard anyone specifically say they preheat the liquid, but it would help reduce the temp. drop.

  3. Well I set up the mailbox mod tonight so I'm not worried about excess moisture anymore. I think I will still bring the liquid to a summer before putting it in the smoker though.
  4. I always preheat any liquid that goes in the water pan. Ernie
  5. Makes sense to me so I heated the broth too and it worked well. Thanks.

    What's the link to CheffJJ's au jus? His finising sauce is amazing so i"ll have to try this.
