    Grabbed some cheese and peanuts to smoke for Christmas gifts earlier in the week and decided today was a better time as any to get this done. Did the peanuts Scarbelly style.

    I also decided to give smoked salt a try since I've run into a few threads about it. I just did regular iodized table salt. I think it turned out pretty good!

    Oh, did I mention smoked chicken wings for dinner?? Brined them in buttermilk as per Jeff's method, I used Eric's hawg heaven rub on these instead of Jeff's Rub, I found the last ones I did to be too salty.

    The cheeses

    Cheese and salt were smoked with maple for 2.5 hours in the Big Chief. After the 2.5 hours the cheese was removed and the salt was transferred over to the WSM to continue smoking with the peanuts.

    Cheese done

    And vac packed to rest for a few weeks when they'll be wrapped individually

    Chicken wings out of buttermilk brine and ready for more rub

    Smoke salt came out nice

    Scarbelly's smoked peanuts!

    Wings into the WSM

    Something to munch on and enjoy while WSM comes back up to temp

    Stay tuned for wings!

    Wings are done and eaten. Good layering of flavors on these and nice bite-through skin. I sauced these with a mix of Jeff's Sauce and honey garlic sauce.


    Fresh outta the smoke, ready to be sauced

    After sauce and a quick trip under the broiler

    Didn't make anything for a side, so we plated up with some pickled carrots

    Hockey season and wintertime is here!! [​IMG]
  9. It freezes here occasionally... [​IMG]

    Maybe 5-10 times a year. [​IMG]  And the San jose Sharks play about 22-24 miles(45 minute drive) from my home.

    That's as close to winter as I need to enjoy it. [​IMG]

    WOW!!! You've had some time on your hands!!! Can't see anything I wouldn't stop by your place for a taste of, either. I've been meaning to try the Scarbelly peanuts for a long time and never have gotten that far. I really want to do almonds, too, from raw...had some I picked up for that purpose and they ended up getting used for something else. Gotta get some of each at the store and take that ride, soon!!!

    Thanks for sharing your smoke and fun, brother!!!

    Didn't they have some outdoor games down there last year?? That was a bit odd to watch [​IMG]

    Thanks brother!

    Scarbelly peanuts are probably the easiest thing I've smoked and one of my favorite snacks!
  13. It all looks outstanding!! Great Project
