He’s Smokin’ Again

Larry has been busy smokin’ out in the yard again.  NO, NO, NO!  It’s not what you think.  He was smoking meat, and lots of it too.  He did a 10 lb pork roast, some ribs, a beef roast and some chicken breasts.  When he uses the smoker, he likes to make it worthwhile and does a big batch of meat all at once.  Believe me, we will not be going hungry anytime soon.  🙂

The pork roast was first in the smoker.  It took about 10 hours for this to smoke up just right.

Then Larry added the ribs, chicken and beef to the smoker.

This smoke job was Larry’s best effort yet.  Everything came out so good.  It was all full of flavor and very tender.  To really enjoy these bold smoked meats, we needed some bold and hearty side dishes to go with them.  We chose to eat the beef roast for dinner.   I sauteed some peppers and mushrooms and made some delicious, crispy onion rings  and my lemon pepper corn bread Lemon and Pepper Cornbread to go with the meal, finished with a fruity red grenache-syrah blend.

The meal was a smoker’s delight.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone!  ‘Til next time.

    1. A smoker is a little different than a grill in that it cooks at a low heat for longer periods of time. There are recipes for marinades, sauces and rubs you can use too. The key is you want to keep your meats moist because they will be cooking for long periods of time and can dry out.

  1. Everything looks great! What type of smoker does Larry have? I keep thinking about getting a small Traeger smoker when they are selling them at Costco. I could take it with me when we go RVing.
