Update to the recipe
We use Texas Pete's hot sauce , not Frank's
.... Sounds like it did A OK... Glad it worked out. ABT's looked awesome
Might try a little chicken this afternoon for dinner. I am a breast guy, do skinless,boneless breast's work out ok on a smoker? Finish temp?
Fuelrod, I've been following this from the start! "WHAT A COOOOOL" looking smoker! It almost looks like a mid-evil torture device or something you launch in space… … Sweet welding job!
Thanks WD! I like to put my little design "twist" on things if I have a chance. Some times things just turn out the way they need to when you get your parts from the dump.
Is Texas Pete's hotter than Franks?
to my pallet it's not much hotter just more vinegar in TP vs Frank's
A little, Franks has a bit more vinegar taste to it. I'm a franks fan but I used to eat Texas Pete on my scrambled eggs in the morning aboard ship in the Navy and the USCG!
So I just read the whole thing. Man oh man, am I hungry for smoked food. All I have is 2 low rent charcoal grills kicking around here. And no way they'd hold the heat with our weather.
My smoker is snow covered & out for the season.
I have a screened in deck.. Could use electric pretty much anytime..
I have not tried, but I thought that it would be real hard to hold the heat in these temps no matter the heat source? I have read about guy's insulating some of the fancier/bigger builds.
about the same heat. Pete's has less of a vinegar hit to it than Frank's
This is foam insulated.. Reviews say it works well in low temps..
I snagged your BBQ sauce recipe for future reference.. Thanks!
Just read through this and TD this was great advice
I guarantee it. Or your money back!
Call now and I'll double your recipe. Just pay separate shipping and handling.
People here in Central Pa like it sweet. Many have told me its a lot like Sweet Baby Rays. But IDK
We like SBR here too but not sure if we'd like it sweeter.. Can always adjust the recipe to taste.. I have compiled many recipes mostly from the "Smoking Ribs" email newsletter.. I paste the recipes into word and clean out all the ads and hyperlinks, change the font etc.
I have a big asbestos blanket that I might be able to wrap the smoker in for a try, maybe a short chicken smoke. Now I'm thinking that I could rig a smoke pipe through an open window in my heated shop and to he!! with the asbestos and the chicken, hello piggy!
Might want to use fiberglass or foam rather than asbestos or better yet venting smoke outdoors.. Could probably just use flexible dryer duct..
