Last week
« on: July 21, 2014, 06:29:06 am »
Hi all, sorry it took so long, had a great time in Tunisia and been tired since.
Wanted to give the kids a BBQ when we came back, but only having the BCS, this ain't for purists !!

Pulled Pork !
Skin and fat removed, rubbed and placed in a slow cooker for three hours



Into the BCS for three hours of apple smoke



Back in the slow cooker for another six hours.

Ribs !
Rubbed and sent for a nap in the fridge.


Before cooking



2 1/2 hours PL03 and we were good to go.




And the PP ?

All that was left after the varmints eat their fill
Cheers
Dave

Ps I haven't forgotten the fattie, on my to do list.
I am what I am.

Just curious with the pulled pork.  Why did you go to the slow cooker for 3 hours prior to the 3 hour smoke period only to go back to the slow cooker again after the smoke period.  Would it not have been just as effective to go straight to the smoker for the first 3 hours and then into the slow cooker for the duration?

Simple really, I didn't want to get up at silly o'clock to pre heat and smoke.
Works for me.

The only problem is they say meat tends to absorb less smoke as it cooks.  Thus, cooking it for 3 hours before smoking it in the Bradley means less smoke flavor than if you had started with it there.  It will still absorb some smoke, just not as much.
