Default Friday Night Filet Pron, Part II - Or what happened to that other piece of meat?

From this thread:

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=180162



So I picked up some chicken thighs from my local Stater Brothers:



In a nod to TonyBel, I decided to make some yakitori chicken.

Hold your horses, I'm getting to the filet......


I changed the recipe from rice wine to rice wine vinegar and from soy sauce to ponzu.

I did this because if I recall correctly, marinades need an acid component to "pierce" the meat.



Diced up the thigh meat, and into the marinade they went for about 4 hours....





The feftover thigh meat gets a coating of Kickin' Chicken



No snaps of this, but it was good

So Mrs. SJ comes into the kitchen, takes a whiff, and wants a smoked chicken, so back I go to Stater Brothers.....


So I fire up the UDS, and while I'm waiting for it to come to temp, I gave the leftover filet mignon piece another coat of rub....



And wrapped it in bacon!



A smoked filet mignon? Uh, yup!


Back to the kabobs...

I used "Old Leaky" for this....



Shishkabobs on!



Turning turning turning....



This shot is blurry, but I assure you they are done!



You two play nice now! Daddy will be back!



Some time later......

The filet:



Different taste than preparing it the traditional way, but it was a try...

The chicken (someone couldn't wait for me to snap the pic...

I gotta say it looks like that filet was in the smoker for about an hour too long for my tastes. Good thing there was other food

The center was more rare than the ends but it wasn't as dry as I thought it should have been. It was a first outing. If the family hasn't eaten it up by Monday, I'll try it again with bout 30 minutes less time.

How funny - I'm doing tonybel's yakitori chicken today. I think that post got a lot of folks salivating. Did you like the results with the mods?

Nice cooking there John!

It had a little too much acid/vinegar for my taste, but it was good.

I might try backing off on the rice wine vinegar or switching the sugar from white to brown.
