Default Will it Hang, EP 1 & 2

Will it hang? That is the question!

Today's contestants:



First up: The Fattie. Today we're using Jimmy Dean's Country Mild. We're hitting it with a little Pit Barrel All Purpose followed by the Beef & Game. To hang it, I'm going with the vertical double hook chain. This lets the bottom of the fattie rest on the hook. Will it be enough???




Before we find out, we got another contestant: Beef Ribs. This is one of the extra thick beef ribs from Restaurant Depot. Trimmed up to remove the fat cap and the membrane and then hit with Rub Co Santa Maria seasoning. Hooked just below the top bone.



And now into the Pit Barrel, rocking out around 280* with a few Oak chunks.




So, will it hang?

@ 1:00 hr.






Yum, it hangs.


Ribs are still hanging after 3 hrs.

Thanks all. I was pretty sure it would hang, especially with the double hook. I was a little worried when I stuck the hook in and then rotated it putting a tear in the raw sausage. Nothing a little packing couldn't fix. I figured I just had to hold it there for 20 - 30 minutes until the sausage started to tighten up.

Now trying to decide what is up for hanging next.

You can see in the photos that it did elongate a little. But it held. I'm very tempted to try it with one hook in the middle. I really do think there is a good chance it will hold. I got an idea of how to improve my odds with one hook too, but that is a secret for now. Jimmy Deans was on sale, so it will only cost me $2.50 to try. ... Though I need something else in the cooker to justify the charcoal. The Pit Barrel seems thrifty on the amount of charcoal it uses during the cook, but thusfar having been too lazy to rig something up to snuff the fire out and re-use the charcoal, I'm wasting 1/3 to 1/2 of the ~8# ever time I light it.

Ahh, the ribs you ask.... did they hang, that is the question:



Yes they hang!

But, I think this photo shows you need to be somewhat careful with your hook placement. I originally had the hook at the other end, because it was a little thinner and I wanted the thicker end closer to the fire. If I hadn't moved it just before putting it on the smoker, these might have been charcoal food.


Final thought, no one has mentioned my title inspiration
