Title: First smoke, what a blast!!!
Post by: HCT on May 29, 2007, 11:23:30 am
Well I finally fired up the smoker yesterday. Truly an enlightening experience. I did 2 racks of ribs that I rubbed overnight and 4 chicken breasts that I injected with some garlic rosemary butter. The Bradley took a while to heat up and after putting the meats in took a couple of hours more to reach 220 degrees. But once there it stayed there. I started the smoke when the temp. hit 150 and continued for 3 1/2 hrs. Everything was pretty much done by then. FTC'd for about an hour. Color was beatiful, tastes beyond my belief. Oh, and of course slathered on my home-made chipolte/brown sugar BBQ sauce. The best part,aside from eating, was the learning process. After being saturated with all the great info and tips from everyone here, everything just went so smoooth. Everyone loved the food and I was 100% satisfied with the way all turned out. Now it's off to make myself 200% satisfied. Thanks for all the posts and help.
Mike

This is a classic style barbecue sauce with the added smokey flavor of chipotles (smoked jalapenos). You can either purchase or make your own chipotles.
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup water
2 cans chipotle chiles (smoked jalapeno), chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
PREPARATION:
Heat oil in a sauce pan. Add onions and garlic. Saute until soft. Stir in brown sugar, celery salt and black pepper. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until the sauce thickens.
