Rckcrwlr's Dilemma...What should I do when...
« on: January 18, 2011, 12:59:20 PM »
My butcher calls me...

Rckcrwlr: Hellllloooo!

Butcher: John, what's up?
Rckcrwlr: not much, how about you?

Butcher: Not much, your Briskets will be cut tomorrow for the big game (Steelers/Jets AFC Championship) on Sunday
Rckcrwlr: Perfect man...make sure they are extra special

Butcher: will do bro...
Rckcrwlr: Cool...what can I do for ya

Butcher: I have a favor...well a deal, for you
Rckcrwlr: Oh yeah, and what would that be?

Butcher: Can you smoke me some of those, what do you call them, Baby Boulders?
Rckcrwlr: Sure can, when do you want them?

Butcher: For Saturday
Rckcrwlr: Yeah, I should be able to do them, How many?

Butcher: 12
Rckcrwlr: 'thump' then pick myself off the floor.  Why 12?

Butcher: Now here is the deal...if you can do that for me, I will give you a case of breasts for yourself.
Rckcrwlr: 'thump' 'splat'

Butcher: John, you OK?
Rckcrwlr: Yeah, sounded like you said you would give me a case of Baby Boulders if I smoked 12 for you.

Butcher: I did...so you in
Rckcrwlr: Oh Yeah!!!!

So this thread is going to be marathon smoking of 12 Baby Boulders...

Now the questions:

Should I go with 2 sessions of 6 that will take about 10 hours or 3 sessions of 4  that will take about 6 hours.

By the way...these are being made for someone that I cannot say right now.  Once I get the OK, I will let you know.

I'll wait for our resident boulder expert STC to wade in but I would go for the 2 sessions.

Sounds like a great deal for you though. 8)

That's what I was thinking too.  I could probably hang all 6 at different lengths to ensure that there is enough "air" flow.

Nice deal Rckcrwlr. It is some work but the reward is worthwhile. I have never done one of these as they are pretty pricey here but I will bite the bullet one day. Are you going to use CT on them or something else?
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Definitely 2 sessions - 6 each.
You don't have to hang them, but they sure do look prettier when they are done that way!  :D


A case for your trouble???

I'll come help!

Find yourself a couple...and don't share them.  I made that mistake and now to get one for myself, I need to make 3.  LOL

Yes on the CT... That with my "Wing Dust" and it will give a great crust and a little spice.  It's usually a surprise at the end when someone eats it.  Not overpowering at all.

I like the look after they hang also.  First attempt on these, I was not prepared for the 10 hours.  This time I will be ready.

Think it's a fair trade STC?  Now I just need to work out something for some Brisket...  LOL

Holy carp. They go for around $30 here.

They are 3 pound turkey breast roasts..  All white meat.  They come frozen solid, and they roll around like little boulders when they fall out of your freezer.




They make bigger ones as well.  Closer to 10 pounds each.



Those suckers are expensive - but you get a ton of meat out of them.

I have never been able to get my hands on breasts that big...really...   :-[

These Baby Boulders are great for sandwiches.

Still a deal...how much are you paying for smoked turkey breast at the deli counter?  I know that my wife was paying close to $9 per pound for that stuff, and it isn't close to what you will experience.  She refuses to buy it anymore.

Nice score!  I wish I had a butcher call me sometime...  :( :( :(
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?
