sirloin tip WAY too lean for that kind of treatment, lesson learned. Also, I can't think of a good reason to wrap your meat when seasoning the night before and throwing in the fridge -- let some of that surface moisture go away

Werd. Would not do again.

Smoking drumsticks for first time tonight

Went to pull out one of the packages that’s been “thawing” for a few days in the fridge and it’s still somewhat frozen because of how tightly it was packed :mad:

Anyone have a good recipe for Biscuits? I’ve tried 4 different ones and they all have came out like hockey pucks that don’t rise. Not sure what the hell im doing wrong.

I forgot to post my smoking fiasco from Monday! I almost blew up myself and the entire neighborhood smoking a pork butt. I will try to update tomorrow.
Long story short. I had fired up my stick burner to smoke a Pork Butt and was about 2 hours into it. Going good.

First chance I had to play with my new Christmas present on the smoker. The Meater thermometer. Prolly seen them advertised like crazy around Christmas. It is really cool. I like it.

There had been guys drilling and laying fiber-optic cables on the side of the street behind my house. I didn't think too much of it. All a sudden a few fire trucks show up and the police block off the roads. A repair crew comes from the gas company so I presume there was a gas leak. Oh well. I didn't smell anything. And it looked like the leak was a ways down the road to me. So I kept on cooking on. Radio blaring away. Just threw a few more logs in the smokebox and everything was going well.

Bout 10 minutes later I started hearing a hissing noise. About that time two firefighters come running into my backyard yelling and screaming! Their handheld gas meter was going nuts. And they saw the smoke from the new logs and came running!!! Dude said it was at a combustible level at my fence 20 feet away! He said I had 30 seconds to pull my meat off the girl and he already had the water hose in his hand!

So I had to grab it and finish it off in the Oven inside. Weird that they never even cut the gas to the house off.

Oh and the Meater Thermometer is freaking awesome. Got it setup in the cloud so I can check on the cook anywhere from my watch or phone. Pretty neat.

Should have cooked the Pork Butt closer to 180 or more but was running out of time. It was really cheap and made for decent pulled pork sandwiches anyways.

So did they drench your smoker? I'd be pissed if I were you.
I was kinda pissed but what could I do. They just put the fire in the firebox out. Didn't touch the smoke box at all or anything. Just basically put the fire out. Full of half-burnt firewood and chunks now. I will just have to clean it out a little more for next time. Guess it beats the alternative of a massive explosion.

a gas leak into the atmosphere (no enclosed space) isn't going to fucking explode. They were being extremely cautious which is the fair thing to do, but I wouldn't think you were in any danger.

This... I was kinda perturbed. But wasn't going to fight with them. I work for a natural gas company and have to go through training and all often. I explained that I barely even smelled the mercaptan which would stick closer to the ground being heavier whereas the gas would just go straight up to the atmosphere. But I wasn't going to argue. Their little meters were beeping so we shut it down.
