Store bought corned beef normally has a lot of salt added and the package will say how much solution is added to your beef. Generally cooking corned beef is done by boiling it in water. Doing so will remove some of the excess salt that has been added. Since we are smoking it, we will need to remove some in advance.
Can a steak be fun? Sure it can! Take the Tomahawk Ribeye for example. Nothing screams fun like a huge steak with a huge bone sticking out for you to hold. It is one gorgeous looking steak! Now, take it up a notch and go for a Wagyu version and you will be dreaming about this steak for a long time.
Ah yes, another post about one of my favorite things to smoke. The fatty. According to Wikipedia, these came onto the scene back in 2008 and went by the name of a Bacon Explosion. Since then, they have gone by many different names but I hear them called fatties on forums more often than not.
Thanksgiving brisket is a thing right? I don’t mean to sound unamerican and I don’t dislike turkey but I like brisket even more. I don’t get to cook it very often because beef can be a little spendy so I use the excuse of Thanksgiving being a special day to cook a special piece of meat. We still have turkey but it isn’t the highlight of the feast.
I’m a huge fan of the Memphis Dust rub but after using it for so long, I wanted something slightly different. Not too much but something with a little different flavor profile. I decided to incorporate some lemon and remove the ginger. I also tweaked some of the ratios. What I produced turned out to be a great tasting rub that goes on both pork and chicken.
