re: Smoking up a storm today - gumbo2176
[quote] USDA Prime chuck roasts for $6.99/# and they are possibly as good a piece of beef as I’ve ever smoked.[/quote] Good chuck roast is like the pork butt of beef. Really hard to mess it up and I've never had one not come out fork tender. :cheers:...

re: Smoking up a storm today - gumbo2176
[quote]Crack it open, baw. It’s not a proper smoke without it.[/quote] I agree, and I'll drink to that. Besides, keeping tabs on both smokers is sweat inducing today, so I need to stay hydrated. :cheers:...

Smoking up a storm today - gumbo2176
I've got a 10 lb. pork butt on my bullet smoker and 14 lbs. of Andouille sausage I cased up yesterday in my homemade box smoker. I got things started around 7:30 and once up to temperature, on the grates things went. I'm starting the Andouille with a heavy, low temperature smoke for a few hour...

re: Never too hot to cook a gumbo, right? - gumbo2176
That's as dumb as saying it's too hot to cook meatballs and spaghetti, chicken stew, red beans and rice. How is eating any of these hot dinners any different than eating a bowl of gumbo. Just a bunch of stupid people with silly rules. Cook what you want when you want it....

re: Godfather 1 or 2? - gumbo2176
I was blown away by the original "Godfather" and when they announced a sequel, I figured they were just cashing in on the fame of the first. However, it was exceptionally good but the only thing that got me was the frequent flashbacks throughout the movie. That had me watching it a few times t...
