Meat / Honey meatballs
« Last post by watchdog56 on August 16, 2017, 12:26:27 pm »
Was thinking of using this recipe for the meatballs then roll in honey then wrap bacon and into smoker for 2 hours of apple. With a brush of honey coating in the last 20 minutes.
Let me know what you think

Anytime Meatballs
2 lbs beef (we used 1 lb of ground chuck and 1 lb of ground venison)
1T olive oil
3/4 C finely chopped onion (we used red onion)
1/2 C bread crumbs (we used seasoned)
2 eggs
1/2 C milk
1 1/2 t oregano
1 1/2 t basil
1 1/2 t garlic salt
1 t seasoning salt
1 t Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t pepper

Saute the onion in the olive oil until cooked through; set aside to cool.
Combine the other ingredients, then add cooled onion.
Mix well, and form into meatballs.
Smoke at 225 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours.  We used mesquite smoke

Bob, the chat room would be nice for that but when you're the only one in the room it doesn't do much good.

The stock Bradley is subject to temperature swings over the heating cycle.  Twenty degrees Fahrenheit plus or minus your temp set point is common.  Forty degrees would be unusual.

I did have a thought regarding sun.  Is your smoker in the sun?  If so, it is possible that you might be picking up some additional heat from the sun?

I'm wondering if you can finish your smoke by reducing your set point ten degrees or so?

The drying cabinet is moving along.The cabinet is built and I've collected most of the parts I'll need. I already have a small bar fridge for cooling and I found a small dehumidifier and a controller for it all, also there's a low speed muffin fan for circulation and air exchange. The cabinet is 1/4" ply over 2x2 framing, the basement is quite cool and humid so I'm hoping that will be enough. Now I need a good recipe for a first batch of salami or ham, any advice welcomed.

Hey folks. So I have what I consider a big problem with the Bradley digital smoker. Trying to smoke some salmon, my recipe calls for 120 degrees Celsius for the first two hours. Just went out and checked it, temp is Edgar 120, but the actual temperature was almost 160. I can see up to 5 degrees but 40??? Am I missing something?

The four bellies after overhauling about 2 more days and they will be ready.

In just repaired an Original Smoker for a friend and the thermal fuse in the back was blown. I ordered one and soldered in in, it was back running. I should say I put a jumper across the thermal fuse just to prove it was the only culprit, I would have hated to get the new one and replace the bad one only to find out there was another problem. They did say when they finished smoking one day they forgot to unplug the unit and the slider for the heat was on high when I got it.
