re: Smoking A Turkey Question - lovelsu
On my electric smoker that averages 250 we put it on around 4:00 AM and it is usually done by 11:00 AM. One year we had an issue because it was cold and windy and smoker could not stay at temp - once we found a place to put it out of the wind the problem was solved (that ended up being a late Chris...

re: Masterbuilt 40 in. Electric Smoker Vs. 22 in. Weber Smokey Mountain - lovelsu
I started out with a Brinkman electric smoker (looks similar to the Weber but it is electric) and I LOVED IT! Easy clean up and did the trick for all of my smoking needs. I called it my crockpot of smoking because I just stuck whatever I was smoking on and more or less left it alone. Granted there...

re: I want to buy a smoker. Suggestions? - lovelsu
I had a Brinkmans for over 7 years and loved it. Loved it so much my husband bought me a fancy Master Forge - don't like it at all. For some reason I cannot get the temp correct (takes awhile to get to temp) and then it seems to be getting hotter rather then leveling off (even though the temp read...

re: Darla's Kitchen Reno - lovelsu
Just finished my kitchen and living room. If you are going with recessed lighting in the kitchen I highly recommend LED lights. My neighbor warned me she used regular recessed lights and they add more heat to the kitchen. They are not cheap but are supposed to last a lot longer and are more effic...

We converted ours and love it. Don't have to worry about how much propane is in the tank, etc. We just bought the converter at Lowes and it took my husband about 30 minutes to connect. Would never go back to propane. ...

re: Mamma Della's is the location for Resturaunt Impossible - lovelsu
This is not the first show in Louisiana. He did one on a place in Mandeville or Covington which specialized in seafood. He gave him a new recipe to boil crawfish but the guy went back to the way he was boiling them once Robert left. Don't remember the name of the place but it was in LA....

re: Average temp on a Brinkman electric smoker???? - lovelsu
250!!! That is what the smoking chart recommended and after 2 hours they were pretty charred! I used to do them on my old smoker for 3 hours and they came out perfect everytime. Still have the old smoker but guess I will have to go and buy a thermometer - never needed one as on the old smoker a...

Average temp on a Brinkman electric smoker???? - lovelsu
For years I had a Brinkman electric smoker that had no temp setting - just plugged it in and let it go. I learned how many hours it took to cook the things I smoked on it. For Christmas I got a new electric smoker with a temp adjuster and timer. Did some sausage on it based on the recommended t...

re: Help with beef bottom round rump roast - lovelsu
This sounds along the lines of how my mom used to make it. The crock pot recipe sounded really good but as you stated in a later post the recipe you posted you can slice the roast. I use a chuck when I want it falling apart but i like a rump to slice and use leftovers for sandwiches. My mom use...

re: Help with beef bottom round rump roast - lovelsu
Crock pot idea sounds great. Will give it a try. Should I flour it before browning? For some reason I think my Mom used to flour it then braise it. Have everything in the pantry including the onion soup mix :nana: :nana:...
