Red Cow Bottom Round With Stuffed Taters, Carrot Cake & A Sausage

Discussion in 'Beef' started by smoking b, Apr 6, 2014.

  1. In preparation for the pinball tournament today I'm smoking a red cow bottom round.


    Here it is - when I weighed it, it was just slightly over 3 lb.


    I gave it a SPOG treatment


    & had a cup of hot tea while the smoker warmed up.


    When I took the bottom round out to put in the smoker I saw this duck in my top pond.


    It kept diving & playing around so I took a couple pics from my deck. You can see the circles from it just surfacing again.


    & here is the bottom round in the cloud of goodness.

    Smoker temp 225                                 AMNPS running hickory & cherry pellets.

    Now to figure out what to make to go along with it.

    The ducks and geese are still walking on top of our lakes. Nice to see some open water.
     
  4. You forgot your drink man. Here you go.

  5. It hasn't been open very long. As soon as it thawed ducks & geese started stopping & spending a night or two on the lower pond before moving along.
     
  6. I decided to make some stuffed taters for one of the things to go with the bottom round.


    I browned a little burger in the skillet with a bit of onion, peppers, tomato & a wee bit of sauce.


    Cut up a few pieces of a ham I had cured.


    & grabbed a hunk of smoked cheddar  [​IMG]
     

  7. Assembly station is set up. First I put some ham in the taters.


    Then the browned burger mix.


    & topped with smoked cheddar. I made 2 with mozzarella.

    These then went in the smoker.

  10. Ok I decided to whip up a carrot cake. Some pics coming shortly...
     
  11. Ok here it is just out of the smoker & ready to rest.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

    It looks a lot smaller on the spatula but it's the same bottom.


    I ran a bit of my bacon through the Townecraft & threw it in to get crisped up...

    I just went up stairs and my wife is making something that looks like your taters.

    Hmmmmmmm?
     
  15. Ok time to eat!


    Just out of the foil.


    Cut in half - to be explained shortly...


    Nice tender, juicy bottom.


    Very juicy  [​IMG]   These things have amazing flavor if you do them right  [​IMG]


    The reason I cut it in half is because of a couple people who won't eat their meat unless it is turned into leather - therefore...


    While I was grilling a couple awesome homemade sausages...


    I threw some slices on to turn them into strips of leather.


    Pretty well leatherized...


    The sausages were great! The leather strips must have been good too because a few more slices were requested  [​IMG]


    This is all that was left...


    Here are the stuffed taters - I put the bacon pieces on top of them.


    Closer view.


    These things are incredibly good  [​IMG]  they pretty much got inhaled instantly  [​IMG]

    I'll be back with the carrot cake to wrap things up...

  18. Finally there was the carrot cake. I made it from scratch including the syrup for in it...


    Here are the dry ingredients.


    Cutting the butter in.


    The wet ingredients & syrup I made.


    Carrots shredded.


    Nuts chopped.


    Everything mixed up & ready to go in the oven.


    Done & cut.


    Pretty good cake  [​IMG]


    Topped off with a bit of cream cheese glaze which gave this a little push & put it over the top - it was a great dessert for this meal  [​IMG]
