re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
I put in some work and added quite a bit of content this afternoon.

Introduction, a guide to smoking, types of wood now has info added. I would like if someone else can cover the charcoal vs propane vs electric smoker section. I've only used charcoal, and don't have much knowledge here (if nobody does it, I will remove the section all together).

Also added some recipes, and other people have more coming. So this will continue to grow. I will update and organize it better as we progress.


In no way am I an expert. Im actually fairly new to smoking, but I've done my homework with hours of reading and tons of smoking. If anyone has anything to add, or thinks that what I typed isn't fitting, let me know. I would rather this be a board wide project, instead of just me.



I have also not proofread anything yet. Just been pumping out info..so don't judge me if the grammar isn't spot on just yet.

re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
I can toss in some info about using an electric smoker. I have a 40 inch MES Gen 2.5 along with my 18.5 WSM.

I'll take a look at what you wrote up and try to do the same general info.

I'd have a section on stick burners too if we have folks who smoke old school.

re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
need a section on brining, not at first
but it'll need to be in there

That wouldn't be my area. I've brined my chicken once, and didn't notice much of a difference, so I never did it again. Feel free to write something up and I will gladly add it.

re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
Name of recipe: Alabama White Sauce

Description: White BBQ Sauce first made by Big Bob Gibson in Decatur, AL (North Alabama near Huntsville). This sauce is a vinegar and mayonnaise base perfect on smoked chicken, but also great on pork and meaty fish like shark or swordfish. This is my recipe I got from my dad. Born and raised in Huntsville, so this was a required sauce any time we had smoked chicken.

Prep time: 5-10 Minutes

Ingredients:

2/3 Cup Mayo (I recommend Dukes...and I swear if anyone uses Miracle Whip, I will find out and drag you to the nearest Sonic)
1 TBSP Water
3 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
1 TBSP Light Brown Sugar (Turbinado sugar also works)
1 1/2 TSP Fresh Lemon Juice
1 TSP Cracked Black Pepper
1/2 TSP Sea or Kosher Salt (any salt that's not iodized)
1 TSP Garlic Powder
1/4 TSP Cayenne (adjust for heat preference, but a white sauce should not be excessively spicy)
1 TSP Onion Powder

Cook time: Not cooked, but really needs to sit in the fridge for at least 24 hours for the flavors to meld.

Yield: About 1 1/2 Cup

Instructions: Stir together all the ingredients (use a whisk) in a bowl. Move to the fridge.

Anyone have skills to make a logo for the book? I just threw up the LSU logo, but that really isn't fitting. Tried a picture of a smoker originally but that looked strange as well.

re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
I cleaned it up a bit.

Now I'm just waiting on your all time favorites to add in. Also need some input on a few other sections, but the hard work is mainly done. Just time to fill it up with recipes.

Would getting a sticky be possible on this while we are putting it all together?

re: F&DB - Smoker Recipe Project underway
holy crap man, you have spent a lot of time an effort on this.
It will be great for people like me that are new to the smoking game.

Thanks.

I'm fairly new to it also. I just jumped in head first and spent a lot of time learning the science of it as well.

I did it partly for new people who were in my situation. So I'm glad it will be useful for at least one person. Also did it partly to try out new recipes, because its quickly become my faborite hobby. Counting down the days until my next smoke Saturday.

While not a recipe, a bunch of mine have been coming from this book.

And they have a continuously updated website that has project smoke episodes. Currently up to 3 seasons. Haven't viewed the website much, but the book is fantastic.

I've smoked ribs once. It was not my favorite. Chicken, brisket, hamburges, pork, you can't make them better than cooking on a smoker. Ribs I have had better. I would like to try them out again though.
