Title: 17* Butts in the Bradley
Post by: classicrockgriller on January 08, 2010, 08:30:17 PM
They said it has been 20 years since we have had this severe cold for this long so I wanted to kinda see

What some of you guys go thru.

I started these tonite and temp was 17* with a wind chill of 9*

Got all the Dogs under cover with heaters. Everybody is Happy.

Got a 9.68 and a 8.76 Butt. Both got spicy Cajun season and slathered with a Carolina Mustard.

AT LEAST 8 hrs of Hickory and may apply a little more at the end of the smoke.

CRG,
Don't care how cold it may be, I'm thinking those butts are gonna be great!  I must admit I think I may be a bit pissed about one thing.  Is that a big ol' pile of boudain behind those butts?  If it is you know how to hurt a guy!  If it's not, we're all good.  Either way, great butts and HUGE effort on your part with the cold temps.

I'm thinking I can almost smell the smoke from extremely frigid TX all the way up here in extremely frigid KY!

All the best CRG and as our friend Pachanga signs off,

Good luck and slow smoking.

I had some Savoie's up at camp and it was good.

I can't get it around here so the guy brought me a box.

Savoie's is out of Opelousas, La

When i had it at camp it was grilled.

Will I ruin it with smoke?

CRG,
Now how you gonna ruin a cajun sausage by throwing some smoke on it?  :D

Seriously, probably wouldn't go real long with it but I'm thinking you are going to have some seriously good stuff coming with the smoked Savoie's.

The toughest part is refilling my glass. :D

I have my Gabi set on MAX temp and with that load of meat and the temp outside

She has just now hit 180 according to the DBS temp gauge. (No maverick till morning)

I ordered that new dual probe Auber PID and it should be here tomorrow.

Excellent CRG!  Another new toy coming!

I'm looking forward to your report on smoked Savoie's.  That ought to have some serious flavor.  If it's great.. Told you!  I it's not...I was never on this thread! :D

Post by: classicrockgriller on January 08, 2010, 10:11:40 PM
That Sausage has a bite to it.

It will warm you up! Don't remember it being "that" spicy.

Might have had something to do with Adultry Beverages.

Think I take them off in 1/2 hr or so.
Title: Re: 17* Butts in the Bradley
Post by: KyNola on January 08, 2010, 10:19:48 PM
I HATE those adultry beverages. :D  They will make you smoke some Savoie cajun sausage in 17* in TX! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

About 30 more minutes in the Bradley will give you about 2 hours in there, right?  sounds about good to me.  Can you fire one of those boys up here?  I'm thinking Hal might make the 4 hour drive to my house for one of those!

 
Title: Re: 17* Butts in the Bradley
Post by: classicrockgriller on January 08, 2010, 10:24:27 PM
I smoked these two Butts tonite for no special reason.

Figure I would eat some and freeze the rest for kids.

A friend called me up after they started and ask If he brought me

3 butts over would I smoke one for him. Sure, np. ;D

Heck... I'd drive down just for a beer.. if I thought it was any warmer there...
This weather is getting ridiculous.

I'd have my Christmas lights down by now if they weren't frozen to the boxwoods.

I really want to make some Boudain, but I like mine with pork liver in it and that is kinda hard to find.

Have you ever heard of Blood Boudain?

Save your gas Hal.  It is 12 degrees and looking to get to about 4.

Guys, I'm out of here.  I'm too old to stay awake until daylight.

CRG, I have not had blood boudain but I'm willing to give it a shot. 

Peace

One year I was busy after Christmas and our lights got left up for about 3 months after Christmas.

My daughter had some guy come over and before he got there, I turned on all the outside Christmas lights.

She wouldn't talk to me for a week! :D :D :D

Q - I've been looking for one that would out-live me.

I about had my mind made up to get this one...
I asked in another thread about these RCS grills, and SmokinSoon said he had friends in FL that use 'em and they hold up to the salt air.
It's all 304 SS construction, and I like everything about it.
So, I pulled the trigger.

It's setting me back a bit - but I expect it to be cheap in the long run.

Very nice hal. If it's something that will last a long time and get plenty of use then it's worth spending the dough. It's like buying tools if you spend good money you get good stuff and it doesn't let you down.

They're just flat-out cheaper in the long run.

Boudain and put my hands somewhere where it is warm! ;D

For me, it's driving to the store and getting two 6 pks of D J's Boudain.

Put it in the Bradley and smokin it for 2 to 3 hrs.

I don't make Boudain, but If I live long enough, I will.

TP - you got that right!

In the summertime, I'm always noting the temps in Tampa on the national map...
Countless times it's well into the 90s in our region, and it will be like 86 in Tampa (with a nice Gulf breeze).
The midwest can be brutal.

No problem keeping your drinks cold.

You do get used to it. At -30 to -40 I wear a bomber jacket, no mitts or toque and no long johns. Although after a week or two of those temps my hands start to crack open. We just suffered a week of -35 to -43 stuff and now we are supposed to see a week of close to 0. Now that's nice weather!  ;)

Ky Nola, when I took them out and reslathered them, a piece got stuck to the tray and I ate it.

If these Butts taste anything like that piece, My Friend WILL NOT get one of these.

up this morning and finished the butts off.

Between the two of them it was a litle under 13lbs of pork.

That second slather almost looks like egg from the photo, but the outcome sure does look goooood.

It was a carolina mustard sauce sorta like CT (which I can't get) and is a little sweet but with the spicy

rub, it was a nice balance.

I normally don't do things the same way twice, but this one is a redo.

I gave one to a Buddy and he barley got home and called me back and told me it was the best I had given him.

Don't want to hijack your thread, but I see some more experienced members are watching it.  If you place a drip pan under you meat does it affect how the meat will cook?
I know it is kind of a stupid question but if you don't ask one will never know.

There are smoke guys that like to catch the dripping off beef and make a gravy out of it.

You can if you want to.

Don't see a reason why it would affect the smoke time or the cook time.

sNc, there was only one stupid question ever ask on this forum .... And I did the asking.

If it is important to you to ask, it will get answered.

SmokeNcanuck,
Just make sure your drip pan does not completely cover the rack it is sitting on.  You need to have room for heat and smoke to move upward and not get trapped underneath.

Ky Nola is right on the $$.  Maybe like a 6x8 or 5x9 (your rack is approx 13x9)

Hey buddy - its been awhile since Ive been back here.




Awesome job !   I have been reluctant to smoke in the cold since my last attempt - but it looks like I should be ok if its around 30 degrees or so.

So - what was the total time the butts were in the smoker?  and how many hours of some did you do?
 

You must have a doozie of a power bill....





I cant wait until we get into our new house and I can set my smoker up in the garage so I can smoke year round.....

Someone posted the power draw once and I can't remember but your wife blowdrying her hair every day uses more power than the Bradley.
