    Duke City Barbacoa Shenanigans - w/ Pr0n!

    Happy Sunday Phunday, y'all! It is absolutely beautiful here in the 505 - watched the hot air balloons rise over the Sandias around dawn. Temps are still ridiculous in the sun, but we'll soon be sub-90 F in the day and sub-60 F at night. Can't wait. I've failen for a local barbacoa place -...

    High Plains Shenanigans - Philly Cheese Steak Pizza

    Happy Saturday, folks! Mother Nature's been drinkin' again - it was in the 80s earlier this week, and the thermometer read in the 30s when I fired up the smoker at 0845 this morning. Broke out some John Henry's Mojave Garlic Pepper and a chuckie. 90 minutes in. More fun to come.

    High Plains Beef Fest - w/ Pr0n!

    Happy Saturday, folks! Just back from a trip to Tyler, TX and happy to get back to smoking/cooking at home. I broke out the new Smoke Gateway for the first time, and was pleasantly impressed. Last week, I happened upon a really nice Manager's Special for Beeph Ribs in the bargain bin - $4...

    Cooking with a separated shoulder

    So with all the turmoil in my life (dad, in-laws, and steps are having health problems or grieving), I decide to do some smoking. In the heat. On zero sleep. I already had a chuckie waiting at home and I'm thinking brisket. Yesssh. My local Smart and final has them for 3.65 a pound. Are...

    Chucky’s Nightmare

    This monster, Chucky, came to my house. While I was preparing to cook something he broke out of his constraints and I had to defend myself. I grabbed a knife and cut him in two. This slowed him down but he kept coming. The right side was obviously the stronger side so I threw hot sauce in...

    Dino Bones & 2 Chuckies cooked like a brisket...

    ... that was cooked like a chuckie. Haven't cooked anything in a while so I figured I'd fire up the drum while I work on my other smoker build. The top chuckie just has S&P on it, the bottom has my Dynamite(TM) Brisket Rub. The 2 racks on the left have my Dynamite(TM) Rib Rub, which my...

    May 5th food pron

    I wasn't celebrating Cinco de Mayo, hence the title. So, Mrs SJ buys a pork butt, a chuckie, and a rack of ribs (this is a GOOD woman. no, she is a GREAT woman). The weather here on Sunday was overcast and cool (California cool). Perfect for smoking though. So in go the ribs (Big Mike's...

    UDS 7 Bone Chuck Roast

    I'm having a great time playing around with the UDS. A week or so ago, I was on-call and anchored to the house. Perfect excuse to play on the UDS. Found this 4 pound piece of meat labeled as a "Beef Chuck 7 Bone Pot Roast". Looked more like a slab of beef to me than what I would call a...

    Pulled Beef - Saved from the Crockpot! [pron]

    Last night I found a 4 pound chuck roast thawing. Asked the wife what it was for. She said she was going to toss it in the crockpot for dinner tomorrow (tonight). I said, "Gee honey, you work so hard. Why don't you let me take care of dinner..." So instead I stopped home at lunch and tossed it...

    Recipe: Chuckie (pics)

    Pulled Barbecue Beef (Chuckie) As with all of the large cuts common to barbecue, there is a fervent debate between the "low-n-slow" and the "hot-n-fast" cooking advocates. As I mentioned last year in my Hot & Fast BBQ Beef Brisket post, I'm now firmly in the hot-n-fast crowd. I just can't...
