    Here's a pic I'll submit for the Newbie category... Got my smoker on Memorial Day, and this was the largest project I did this summer, which was on the 4th of July. Eight birds at once, done three different ways - 1) top two racks with a rub, 2) third rack brined, and 3) bottom rack soaked in buttermilk. To my surprise, the buttermilk soaked birds got the most comments from the guests.

    For some reason this reminds me of going to Hooters... and it doesn't have anything to do with the food! [​IMG]

    Sorry... long day at the office... bad Devolutionist...

    [Edit: Uploaded a larger pic to show TBS goodness floatin' round in there. Filling it up again this weekend with 4 boston butts - might submit that one too]

    Buttermilk has just the right tang to it, and it does a great job of moisturizing the birds. I have used buttermilk birds in the 0VEN, on the grill, in a deep fryer, and a smoker. You can't go wrong.

    OK, now THAT would be an accomplishment! Well, an accomplishment or maybe an act of complete gluttony...

    No no... those were mere chickens [​IMG]

    Here's my entry...sorry I don't have as many pix of the finished products, beer was flowing pretty heavily. But here's what I've got.

    Here we got the brisket, 3 racks of ribs, Dutch's wicked beans, and turkey legs the night before.


    Smoke!


    Brisket, turkey fatty and ribs all on the smoker

    Here is my entry. I used Meowey's Apple Meat Loaf recipe with a slight modification. I added horseradish to the loaf and the glaze. I also accidently tipped the bourbon too hard and got a wee bit too much in the glaze. Oh darn! I also used hickory chunks as I did not have any apple on hand.

    The meat loaf smoked for 4 hours. Some of you know that I have griped about my Brinkmann getting too hot. Well today in Topeka we topped out at 92 degrees and my smoker hit 350 inside. The door was closed, so I opened it up and got it cooled down quite a bit.

    Anyway, here goes

    The first picture is the loaf before it went into the smoker. Nice shape huh judges? [​IMG]

    The second picture is my battle scarred Brinkmann.

    The third picture is the elusive Thin Blue Smoke. I had to take three pictures before you could finally see it.

    The fourth picture is the finished meatloaf.

    The fifth picture is the plating with Meowey's Mac and Cheese and my own Seasoned Green Beans.

    I wish you could of tasted it. My 5 year old ate a ton of it, which is saying quite a bit since she barely eats anything. My 11 year old kept asking about it but he wouldn't take a bite. If it isn't pizza or a fish stick, he won't touch it. My wife said that it was the best meatloaf she ever had. That was significant to me since she does not like meatloaf. I thought it was wonderful. Thanks to Meowey for the recipes.

    Awesome I get to teach the legend something! Thanks again for your meatloaf recipe.

    The greenbeans are pretty straightforward
    1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped (I used yellow)
    4 cups of chicken broth (I use water and those little cubes of chicken bullion)
    3/4 of a cup of bacon bits (I use those packages of bacon bits from Oscar Meyer)
    2 pounds of green beans. I had to buy frozen ones since Wally World didn't have any fresh in.
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Basically heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook it for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock, bacon and beans. Let it simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Hope you enjoy! Thanks again!

    I don't know about the legend part, I learn new stuff every day. I'm looking forward to trying the green beans. I'm tickled and delighted that you used my recipes for the photo contest!

    Thanks for the green bean recipe!!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Regards,

    Meowey

    I knew there was bacon in those beans! I have a good recipe for canning green beans with bacon on my site.

    I anticipate that no matter who wins the contest, that there will be eyeballs drooling from the judges! I also put money down that the list of OTBS will grow quite a bit. I am proud of what I did with the meatloaf, but the competition will be intense. Everyone has great Q so far.
     
  17. There's alot of good looking Q-view here. Here's my entry. I had to add a fatty, their my favorite snack. Good luck to all.
