Tonight's Meal - Pork With Honey/Apple Sauce, Salt, Veggies & a Cow Patty

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smoking b, Mar 19, 2014.

  1. I haven't been able to smoke for a day or two so I just had to smoke today. I decided to use a pork roast I had that was just hanging around.

    Here is the roast I started with.

    Gave it some rub. I am trying out the Memphis Magic Dust recipe that SeenRed told me about - thanks man!  [​IMG]

    Coarse sea salt ready to go in the smoker.

    Salt & pork went in the smoker at 250 degrees      AMNPS running maple pellets

    Now I need a cow patty & figure out what else to make.

    Love your threads man.
  3. Thanks man!  [​IMG]    [​IMG]  
  4. Ok the pork is out of the smoker & resting. Once it came out I raised the temp to 280 & left the salt in to finish out the rest of the pellets in the AMNPS.

    Just out & ready to wrap - looking at the top you can just tell this is gonna be juicy & tender  [​IMG]

    I started some cauliflower steaming.

    & sliced up some mushrooms to sauté.

    Hold your noses - I got a cow patty!!  [​IMG]

    I started making a honey/apple sauce while the pork rested & I sautéed the mushrooms.

    Looking good! Your cow patty looks like it could use a little cow cream.
  6. Time to sit down & chew!  [​IMG]

    Just unwrapped & ready to tear into it.

    Nice bit of juice in the foil - I added it to the sauce & mixed it in good.

    Honey/apple sauce is done.

    First cut

    of the roast.

    Very juicy!

    I cut up most of the roast.

    Here are a few pics of that to check out...

    I made up a sammich.

    Gave it some of the honey/apple sauce.

    Closer view...

    Plated with the steamed cauliflower.

    Sautéed mushrooms done.

    & for a strange tasty dessert - some of the cow patty!  Yumm!   [​IMG]

    I will be back for the salt & to wrap things up...
    deansomers and newsmokeguy like this.
  7. Looks Awesome!! [​IMG]  I'm not sure what the cow patty thing is, but I would totally eat it!!
  8. Thanks Todd  [​IMG]    I've done that plenty of times but I don't have any right now. Growing up though my grandma wouldn't hear of adding something to her cow patty!!  [​IMG]    [​IMG]    [​IMG]    [​IMG]  She called it "country fudge"

    Is it fudge? I thought it was pudding.
  10. Thanks man  [​IMG]  
  11. A cow patty or country fudge as my grandma always called it is kind of a cross between fudge & pudding & is actually really good. If anyone is interested I can go over how to make it...

  18. Ok back to finish up...

    The pork roast turned out great - I was pleased with it. Very tender, juicy & flavorful. The rub I tried that Red recommended had a very good taste & the maple smoke melded nicely with everything. The honey/apple sauce was a good choice too. I don't always make a sauce for a pork sammy but I was in the mood for it today & I'm glad I went with the honey/apple - it was a nice complement to the already awesome flavor medley  [​IMG]  

    I'm not gonna get into the cauliflower or sautéed mushrooms - there was nothing special about them but they were good sides.

    Now for the cow patty. It made a perfect dessert for this meal & if you get a chance to make one I definitely say go for it  [​IMG]

    So that leaves us with just the salt...

    Here it is when I brought it in. It is starting to change color.

    In the jar - you can see the color change a lot better in this pic. This batch of salt will go in for 2 or 3 more smokes when I'm using maple till it gets to where I am happy with it.

    Here is what it will look like when it gets done.

    Here is a side by side for contrast so you can easily see the difference.

    & that wraps up this particular meal   [​IMG]
  19. Thanks Justin  [​IMG]
