Smoked Pork Belly Fri, 05/4/12 6:45 PM (permalink)
I had to try out my new smoker today before I smoke a 19 lb ham next week. The Pork belly came out a gold color. I smoked the belly with Hickory and finished with Apple wood........

        There's fat in bacon? Is that the nasty red stuff that has no flavor -- at least no flavor compared to that good light-colored stuff?

                Cane syrup for pancakes? Guess you never heard of maple syrup.

                  pnwchef,
                  What brand/kind of smoker did you get?
                  I'm researching for one for myself.
                  I'm thinking electric only to make it a no-brainer and as easy as possible.
                  I know it's not the best way to go but at my age, I don't need any more Challenges!

                                Hi Foodbme, I use a Brinkmann Duel smoker & gas grill. I bought this so I could have a gas grill on one side and a smoker Charcoal grill on the other side, all in one unit. I would talk with Mar, she is my go to gal for all my BBQ/ smoker info, she knows her stuff.

                                    Check out the Cookshack line. My Amerique has never let me down.

                                      I walked past one of these at the Home Depot, I may just have to go back.

                                        The Brinkmann website says this model is no longer available for sale, but that it is still supported by parts, etc.

                                          Michael, I bought it at Home depot about 6 weeks ago $299 couldn't pass it up..................The only problem with this kind of unit is, you lose heat when you open it to add coals or wood for smoking or maintaining a constant temp. I'm smoking a Ham, it's not that big of a deal but you do need to keep a close eye on it. Having a Wireless BBQ thermometer is priceless..........................

                                            Bill, I checked and found it is available at Home Depot, and for $299. I'm planning to go up there later today to look; perhaps to buy.

                                              THis is a 19lb Ham that I put into a Brown sugar cure for 8 days and then washed and soaked it in fresh water for about 8rs......

                                              I baked the Ham in the oven at 170 degrees for 10 hrs. I then smoked it with Hickory and Apple wood in the smoker for about 4 hrs.........

                                              I use cast iron skillets to place the hot coals and wood on the bottom of the smoker, this works out well to rotate new coals to keep the temp at a desired level........

                                                Good deal, Bill!  You also save your bottom grates by using the cast iron pan.
                                                 
                                                When you make jerky, send me some!
                                                 
                                                I used to have a Cookshack.  I gave it to my brother because I thought he'd use it more than I did.  I had the small one.  It was too one purpose for me when I could achieve the same end product with one of my other grills.
                                                 
                                                They are wonderful for a set it and forget it type of smoking.
                                                 
                                                There are now copies of the Cookshack out there now at pennies on the dollar.  Mine had a list price of $500 and I think the copies are about $200.  I think Sam's carries them.  Major Al has one.

                                                  HI Mar, this one takes care of my needs just fine, I was out side this morning at 5Am getting the smoker going. It's a nice feeling when you you smoke something from start to finish, it may take some work but its a fun process. The thermomotor is a life saver, it keeps me on top of every thing, with out me having to be on top of every thing..........

                                                    I had to try out my new smoker today before I smoke a 19 lb ham next week. The Pork belly came out a gold color. I smoked the belly with Hickory and finished with Apple wood........



                                                     
                                                    How long did you smoke that bad boy for?

                                                      Great to know, Bill.  $299 for a double duty grill is a steal!
                                                       
                                                      Even if Charbroil didn't have replacement parts, there are aftermarket companies that will usually have them.

                                                        I let the Smoked Ham sit in the refer over night so I could let it set up a bit. I cut the Ham into large chunks for Baked Ham, Ham Steaks and Sliced ham for sandwiches. The Ham taste was good, not to salty or smokey, a real lean tender Ham taste. I had to make a breakfast Ham & Eggs sandwich.
                                                         
                                                        Michael, I call this the I95 Ham & Egger

                                                         
                                                        Mar, no comments on the broken yoke, I'm a master smoker now, not a Chef.

                                                          Not being Mar I can say something about the broken yolk: In addition to wrecking a perfectly good egg you spelled it wrong.
                                                           
                                                          But that is a fine looking sandwich. Bet it was messy as all get-out to eat. I eat mine over the sink.

                                                             Naw... that broken yolk lets you see the perfectness (??) of the yolk viscosity.
