Reverse Seared Smoked Ribeyes

SmokinTex Smoked Steak

“I’ve been wanting to give this a try for quite some time and I’m so glad I finally did!
I started with a couple of choice ribeyes, seasoned liberally with kosher salt, black pepper, and granulated garlic. I let them sit for a few hours to draw in the salt and seasoning.
After letting them come up to room temperature on the counter, I put them in my SmokinTex 1400 with only about an ounce of hickory chips @225°F. I smoked the steaks until they reached an internal temp of 110°F. After that I let them rest while heated up a grill to about 600°F.
I brushed the steaks with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)  on both sides and seared them on the grill for about a minute to a minute and a half on each side, and then resting them under foil with a pat of compound butter over the top.
The steaks came out perfect! I don’t think we’ll ever just grill a steak ever again without smoking them first. It was better than any steakhouse steak I’ve ever had, and this wasn’t even prime meat.
I put a couple of cobs of corn in the smoker along for the ride, and they turned out great also.”

Smoked Pecan Praline Ham

1 Smithfield Fully Cooked Whole or Half Ham

This has become a favorite at our house. You will need a 1500 Series Smoker for a 18 to 20 lb. Whole Ham, or you can do a 10 or 11 lb. Half Ham in the 1400. Just cut the Recipe in half for the Half Ham. A heavy duty Injection Needle would also be beneficial. Use your Drip Pan as a Roasting Pan, and place Ham inside. Let any liquid packed with the Ham go in the Pan. For the Half Ham, place cut side down.

2 Cups Dark Corn Syrup (Karo)
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar
2 Tbs. Molasses
1/2 Tsp.;Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Ground Cloves
4 Tbs. Honey
1 Cup Pecan Halfs
2 Cups Light Brown Sugar
Whole Cloves (optional)

Chop half of the Pecans and mix with the 2 Cups Light Brown Sugar. Score Ham and rub this mixture all over. In a small bowl, mix the Water, 2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar, Molasses, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cloves, and Honey until well blended. Add Corn Syrup and stir well. Slowly inject Ham all over, reserving a small amount of the Marinade. Decorate with Pecan Halfs and Whole Cloves, if you like, and drizzle with reserved Marinade. Smoke at 200 degrees for five hours over 3 ozs. Apple Chunks. Tent with Foil and let rest for 30 minutes. Spoon Pan Sauce over Slices when serving.

Smoked Eye of Round by Sodaking27

eye-of-round-sodaking27

“Local butcher had eye of round on sale. Picked up a 2lb roast. Rubbed down with a rub of garlic, salt and pepper. Sliced a large onion in half and placed the roast on top. Added some beef stock to the pan. Loaded up the smoker box with some cherry chips and a couple charcoal briquettes. Smoker set at 225°F. Shooting for an internal temp of 130°F-140°F.

I’ll slice it really thin on the meat slicer. And yes there will be horseradish. I love horseradish on my beef. I’ll agree eye of round can be really tough as leather sometimes. It’s not my preferred choice to make pit beef, but I couldn’t turn it down for the price.”

Homemade Smoked Summer Sausage by Sodaking27

summer-sausage-sodaking27

“This is my first attempt at sausage.

Into the smoker at 140°F w/o wood for the first hour.

13 hours later the internal temp reached 154. Removed sausage and placed in an ice water bath to stop the cooking.

Ingredients:

4lbs. Ground chuck
1lb. Ground pork shoulder
7.5 teaspoons Morton Tender Quick
2 tablespoons mustard seed
3 tablespoons garlic power
2 tablespoons 1/4 cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon salt.
5 – 2.4″ X 12” MAHOGANY FIBROUS SUMMER SAUSAGE CASINGS (soak in warm water 30 minutes before using.)

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients well. Cover with plastic, and refrigerate for 3 days, mixing well once a day.
On the forth day stuff your sausage casings with the mixture. Place the sausage on a rack in your smoker, make sure they are not touching one another. Set your smoker to 140 degrees and remove any wood from the smoker. After one hour add your wood to the smoker and increase the temp to 150. I like to use hickory. Raise your temperature by 10 degrees every hour until you reach 170. Continue to smoke at 170 until you reach an internal temp of 154. Once the sausage has an internal temp of 154, remove from the smoker and place in a ice water bath for 20 minutes to stop the cooking process. Remove from water and dry the casings with paper towels. Hang to air dry for about 2 hours to let it blossom.

Notes: I buy chuck roast and pork shoulder and grind my own using the grinder attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer.
The 6 lb batch I made took 13 hours to reach the internal temp of 152°F.

Orange Stuffed Smoked Chicken

beach chicken crop

5.88 lbs. whole chicken
1 orange
Vegetable/olive oil/butter
S&P

This is so easy and soooo good!

Clean and pat dry your chicken then rub inside and out with oil.
Stuff pats of butter under breast skin.
Salt and pepper.
Stuff cavity with quartered orange. Don’t stuff too tightly as it will lengthen your smokin/cooking time.

We smoked with only a quarter cup of cherry wood chips because our smoker is well-seasoned. You can use any wood you like. Just remember if you are new to smokin start out with a small amount of wood. You can always add more on your next smoke.

We also smoked a couple of potatoes too!

Smoke at 225°F until the breast reaches an internal temp of 165°F-170°F. We always recommend using an internal thermometer. Smokin by time is imprecise and hit and miss.

Most important tip: Always give yourself plenty of time!

Take a picture of your finished smoked chicken and send it to us or post it on our Twitter Page.
