Title: Parteee Time
Post by: Oldman on March 13, 2004, 04:39:02 pm
In just 3 more days I get my BS! The first thing I'm going to do is to test it against my ole wood burning smoker. I will wrap a 15 pound ham, (not fresh) cold smoke it for a few hours. Then turn up the temp to 180 degrees and with a temp probe continue to smoke it until it reaches 150 degrees in the center. (The meat will be room temp before I start.)

If all goes like I think it will then you all come over to the house next week end as it will be Parteee time. We will make sandwiches using home made bread, home grown (organic) tomatoes, and some true Half-Sour pickels. (Who is bring the suds?) We also will have some of the best Boston baked beans you ever had melt in your mouth. Then some raw apple cake covered with home make Caramel Sauce!

With that kind of spread, some of Martha Stewarts old catering customers are likely to start looking you up instead.  Sounds like some great eats.[:D] By "not fresh"  does that mean that it is a cooked cured ham and you are just kicking up the smoke flavor.[?]

Let your trout go and smoke a salmon instead.

<b><i>By "not fresh" does that mean that it is a cooked cured ham and you are just kicking up the smoke flavor.[?]</b></i>

Yes and no. It is not cured like a county style ham.

I have done many a fresh ham, but I found that if I  get a high quality low salt ham wonders can be done with it. I have found that a Hamilton ham to be my choice of store bought hams to work with.  

The real trick to this whole deal is: Cold smoked the ham.  Next hot smoked it to a temp. of 150 F (sorry me bad I posted 165 F degrees earlier.) Max. smoking / cooking Temp. is 180 degree F. Once ham is smoke / cooked place it into a roasting pan and put it into the frig. for several days before you eat. Leave wrap on it (I use 2X layers of cheese cloth. If you cannot get cheese cloth then try extra wide bandage gauze.) The extra flavor will now go to the bone!

It will be interesting to see how the BS compairs.

As I said in the past we have started with a fresh ham. That took much-o work and time. However, if you want to do one I will look around for that reciepe. But frankly unless you wanted to make your own country style or a true Virginia ham I cannot see a reason for going through that hassle.

I have found this much safer, easier, and the eating in end result is just too close to go through the hassle of a fresh to eatable ham. Wait until you fry up a piece of this with your eggs. You will think you died and gone to heaven.

Been away, just got back and checkin the forum....[:D]  Kings are coming back already....spotty most of the winter, but still there. Now, there's mo betta catch reports coming in and just in time. My gaping chainsaw-in-the-chest scar has healed to the point that I don't have to hold my chest to cough/sneeze SOOOO, I'm guessing I can go out now and wrestle with the 20-30 pound Kings next week.  Still snow and ice on the ground, but the small boat harbor is clear of ice...time to thaw the ice that still has a death grip on my boat trailer tires[:D][:D]

Come on up and help catch/smoke/eat salmon![:p][8D]

If you're meaning "Kummok" added to the list of charter operators, it ain't gonna happen [:D]  When you charter, you HAVE to catch fish for your clients...whereas, when you just go out fishing with friends, you HAVE to be "jes fishin". Makes a BIG difference in the fun factor. Charter takes days AWAY from your life while jes fishin ADDS days to your life!  Charter means you fish WHATEVER the weather...jes fishin means you fish when you feel like it . Charter means you have to pay extra to rush a boat repair...jes fishin means if your boat is broke, you leave it for repairs "whenever", and go out with whoever's boat ain't broke!

Charter EVIL [}:)] Jes Fishin GOOD [:D]
