Wife is picking up some steaks for tonight. Now I want to try the Yaj Yak Yaj Yak way and salt the shit out of them and fridge for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Do you cover them or just sit on a plate?

And the last of the chicken is now gone.

Made some curry rice with grilled chicken. For the chicken I did some SPG, and added some crushed red pepper flakes while it marinaded in the fridge.

Put them on a grate with a cookie sheet or plate underneath it to catch any blood.

I would have thought that reading the article it says the salt gets all the blood and juices out, and then gets reabsorbed to break the meat down. Will have to read again.


Will have to read later.

Just did the usual salt the shit out of it and added some Adobo for fun. Turned out pretty good.

Turkey breast came out very good.

Brined overnight in water, kosher salt and brown sugar.

Marinated and injected with beer, butter, soy sauce, franks hot sauce, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper. I combined all those ingredients and simmered on the stove for 15-20 min.

Rubbed it with 2-Gringos chicken rub Cooked indirect between 350-365 with cherry wood chips. James called it. 20 min per lb, it took right around 3hrs.

Wifey made box stuffing and my grandmas noodle rice casserole.

Once I finish getting my yard/house/cars fixed up and Amy gets back in town, I need to start grilling again. You guys make me hungry!

My chain saw showed up so I have been cutting up my downed oak tree limbs. Set up a wood stack in the back yard to start the drying out process. I'll take a pic when I get it filled. Looks like I will have an offset smoker in my future to go along with my Weber gas, Weber modified kettle and electric smoker. I will probably grab an Oklahoma Joe's smoker off FB. Not as good as the one MEATeorite is getting but it will do the job. I see a lot of mods for them online, too, to make them better than stock.

Fatstack has a subsidiary project called prometheus that is DIY things to fix cheaper offsets. Stuff like an oversized and insulated firebox. Stack extensions for better draw. Eric the owner has a few videos on youtubes.
