Barbecue Addiction Taken To Far

On any given day, visiting and local Celebrities, know where to get the best ribs in the city. Those who frequent Harry O's knows he also has, the best greens in the city as well.

Now that I live 2500 miles away from my family members, I usually only celebrate the holiday with my immediate family. Even after all of these years, we still prepare our pineapple glazed ham and all of the sides. We always purchase our ham about two weeks in advance. Of course, we also buy a brisket for our Hanukkah dish. Since not many stores in our area sell the brisket we need, we are always sure to look in the circulars and get to the store before all of them are taken. In addition to the Christmas and Hanukkah meals, we bake Rugelach cookies. Sometimes, we'll bake as many as 12 dozen of them!

Recently though, I've become an advocate of the electric smoker even if it does seem to be a sissy way of cooking a turkey, pork shoulder or roast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiC2dWMavEg - pulled beef slow cooker - . Electricity was invented for making light bulbs work, running appliances, turning on the TV and drying your hair, not for cooking meat outside on the patio.

Ground meat can be used to make good beef jerky, and ground meat is the cheapest pulled beef brisket you can usually buy. They make jerky "guns" to make jerky with ground meat. A jerky gun strong resembles a caulking gun. It has a cylinder that you put the meat in, with different attachments to give you different shapes of jerky. You just season your meat, insert in the gun, and pump it out onto your trays. Ground meat jerky is usually VERY greasy however, and you have to pat it with paper towels through out the drying process to get all of the grease off.

The spice by volume most used as a good base for barbecue rubs is paprika. Paprika is made from sweet red peppers that are dried and then powdered. Most paprika originates from Hungary but now you can get some great paprika from Spain. The author prefers 'sweet Hungarian paprika' when making his own rub. Paprika is responsible for giving barbecue its beautiful red color.

Here in the United States true barbecue is really becoming a popular way of cooking in the backyard. Many people are either purchasing a smoker in addition to their grill or they are converting their roast beef brisket grill into a smoker when needed.

Cumin is a bit more obscure than most of the ingredients found in barbecue rubs, but one that I use in all of mine. Cumin is in the parsley family and has a great aroma. If you have eaten Indian or Persian food, you have had an abundance of this spice. This is a core spice for many Mexican and in nearly all Tex-Mex dishes. I love this spice and often have to hold back to keep from putting too much in my rubs. A little known fact is that cumin is the 2nd most used spice in the world (to black pepper).

Brinkman smokers can be bought off the Internet or at many retail stores that carry smokers and grills. You can shop online http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/tools-and-techniques/food-safety-tips4.htm - slow cooker recipes uk - find the best features and best smoker or grill for the type of cooking you usually do. There are also a number of discounted items online to save even more money on the smoker or grill.
