Thanks a lot Rap !
Bear that looks very good. Bet they were very tasty.
I've been nursing them, and I only have 1/2 of one log left.
I found them to be even better when I lightly fry a couple slices with 2 or 3 eggs!
Thanks for the help. I was going to make these but while I was busy getting chicken ready for the smoker Angie actually put them all together and rolled them into logs, put them on racks and put them in the fridge. I printed out your step by step and she was just going to town with it. Smoking has been pretty much just my brother and I so was very excited and for a lack of a better word, very proud of her to try a new adventure. I helped her with the TQ and the scale but now that she has watched me do it I wouldnt be suprised to see her do it by herself next time.
After talking to her a bit, Im going to help her with the AMNPS and she is going to smoke the logs herself so I guess this is going to be her baby LOL.
Thanks once again for the help and also for getting another member of my family into the smoking hobby/addiction LOL.
I will let ya know how they turn out, but seeing how I have yet to have one of your step by steps turn out anything but GREAT and seeing how she was following it to the letter, Im sure this will turn out wonderful as well.
That's Awesome Dave!!!
You have no idea how good that makes me feel.
This is why I stay here, and why I do those step by steps.
It makes ALL the other stuff worthwhile!!
I can't wait to hear how they turned out.
Thank You for the Great Story !!!
So after reading this forum I decided to give it a try. Crazy me! I only have a COS but it is totally modded out and holds temp very well. I'm babysitting it all day (but to me that's the fun of this hobby/survival cooking) So here are my first pics
you wont believe the amount of coal/wood to maintain the first 3 hours of smoking
more pics when they're done, I have to go bump it up to 150 degrees maybe 12 pcs of coal .
Looking Real Good so far!!!
Thanks bear, I'm, at 145 IT and just bumped the smoker up to 180 degrees hopefully another hour to an hour and a half and then its time for them to do the polar BEAR plunge!!!! Thanks for the recipe in advance as I know it will be great!!!!More pics when they're done.
OK Just got done cleaning out the smoker 8 hours and 15 minutes to smoke the logs a relaxing day. They look and smell GREAT!!!!!!! Can't wait to eat one tomorrow. Here are some pics:
waiting online to do the polar BEAR plunge
out of the smoker
Help I can"t swim!!!!!! Now I know why they call them BEAR LOGS
Thems don't quite look right. I think you should send them to me and I'll let my boys sample them to make sure they are okay!
just cut one open i don't think they're going to see morning. If I wake up in the middle of the night, 6 logs and a bottle of grain mustard don't go a long way. Bear you're a genius, these things are GREAT!!!!!!!!! Now I have to get some casings and do some sticks. Who has the best ones at the best price?
Great Job, Nightsmoker!!!
Glad you like them!! Thank you for the Compliments!!
A lot of people put the sticks in casings, but I like them "Unstuffed". I get better smoke flavor when the meat is exposed to the smoke. IMHO
THANKS!!!! I will go the unstuffed route as I too enjoy the smoked flavor (and saving $ so I can spend it to buy more meat) Maybe next weeks adventure, I'll be making spicy B & B Pickles, Sour Garlic Dill Pickles and I think some pepperoni sticks will go along just fine!
Sounds like a plan!!!
Just yell if you run into a question.
Do you have any recipes for very spicy sticks, or should I just kick up the pepper amounts? What brand and model vacuum sealer do you use?
Thank you Scott
Go to my Signature & use the ingredients in the Bear Loaf Step by Step, but then if you want sticks use the Step by Step instructions for the "Unstuffed Beef Sticks.
My Vacuum packer was real cheap on sale. It is a Foodsaver "V3485". Works Great !!!
Thanks again Bear, will do
If you run into questions, don't be afraid to give me a Yell !!
Have to put everything on hold. A friend of my wives is having a party for her husbands law firm and they asked me to cater it.Hopefully I'll remember to take picks.I did take some today of the grilled veggies. The party is Tuesday pm(tomorrow actually today) I've been at it all day. A lot of salads,sushi,ribs and salmon, grilled fruit with lavender ice cream. Hopefully later in the week I can make some sticks! Thanks for all your help, and I certainly won't be afraid to ask questions. The only dumb question is the one you didn't ask.
