it started with wood chips and couple new ideas. I managed to successfully smoke a 3 lbs. chicken with some really excellent results. the chicken was smoky and succulent. it literally melted in your mouth. so. yay me.
but if you were following my social media feeds today you can tell that i haven’t got the process completely down yet. I have had people suggest that i break down and buy a dedicated smoker. but that is too easy on one hand and too limiting on the other. i’m not looking to make competition bbq and i want to play around with this stuff. this is a puzzle and i have all the pieces. I just need to work out those details and that is what it is all about for me at least.
i’m taking the ideas of low and slow cooking and basic smoking techniques and making something more unique. I guess that one example that would be what i’m working towards is the kind of bbq that you see on BBQ Pit Boys. great grilling and smoking with lots of great flavours and recipes. if i wanted just to make hot dogs and grill a steak I wouldn’t bother with all this. I’m looking for new flavours and want to push the envelop.
it’s not just about meat and fire [which can be enough some days] it about creating something unique and tasty. yes, i will admit that I have a serious bbq habit and i’m looking to feed that need but there is so much that can be done. I have the time being a stay at home dad and I just love trying new things.
so i promise a video is coming and there will be even more as the summer gets into swing. so check back soon.
