Was looking around for forum for smoking food

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by ewetho, Nov 29, 2011.

  1. Well guess which group I found. This site seems to be great friendly and my first post was about the Gander Mountain sale last weekend for Black Friday. Basic little MES. 

    I am an auto Mechanic outside Chicago and like to cook. Got a mean crockpot pot roast if your interested.

    Anyway been Jones'n to try actually smoking food, not just some liquid smoke in the crockpot for pulled pork (for which I get really good compliments even against the smokers). The next level must be attained. Really want to learn brisket my favorite BBQ meat.

    Signed up for the E-Course and looking forward to learning as much as I can 'til I get to practice starting after Christmas.

    Love the suggestions and got a lot to learn.

    My first smoker is the MES Model 20070111. Not the best but should be fun anyway.

    Thanks for all your help already and going forward,

  11. Hey JJ the recipe is very VERY easy for a LOUD but kid friendly pot roast.

    Pick your roast ( what ever is on sale and in good shape, Sirloin, Chuck Etc...) 

    Cover in Emeril Steak Rub.\

    Brown on all sides.

    Set in crock pot (Slow Cooker or you can even go Dutch or under pressure) 

    Add 1/2 gallon ( I have a large Kitchen Aid Slow Cooker) of Better Than Bullion Beef stock at double strength. (this is the real key, regular stock just does not have the wow factor)

    Add carrots, Celery, and Onion (proportions to our taste)

    Cook on high 8 hours.

    Use juices to make gravy for mashed potatoes (made with butter and heavy cream please).
