Smoked my first turkey breast on my "new" Weber smoker.

Best turkey I've ever had.

Very nice. Next time, if you haven't ever tried it, put some fruit in the rack below for aromatics. A few halved apples and a lemon. Some swear you can't taste the difference, but I think you definitely can. We used to smoke chicken breast with hickory and apple wood, then add some halved apples directly below. Best chicken ever.

Too lazy to cook lately. Even though it's been hot I stop nightly, if I don't golf, and pick up a medium combo pho no noodles with extra tripe and tendon.

Yellow coconut curry chicken with sauteed sugar snap peas and coconut ginger fried rice. Last night's dinner was chorizo stuffed sweet peppers and guacamole. I forgot to take a picture, and they didn't last too long...

I've only had my smoker out once this year to make some moink balls and pork chops. Love me some slow smoked meat. :drool:

I was really nervous about "Moink Balls" since I had to Google what the hell they were. Now that I did, I will definitely be making these sometime. (They're bacon wrapped meatballs smothered in bbq sauce for those who are curious)

They are awesome. I try different combos. I think my favorite is sausage balls that I roll in a rub, then generously wrap in bacon and sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar for flavor. I put them on the top rack of the smoker and let the bacon grease drip on the pork chops below. I guess those would just be oink balls though.

I am hoping to smoke my first brisket here soon. I had an UDS smoker which I miss and loved, now it have a smokey mountain from Weber which I like but not as much as my UDS. Any good brisket advice out there. I have done scores of Boston Butts and a few ribs but no brisket yet.

I've never attempted brisket myself. I've heard they can be a bit tricky.

    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
    • "Did you not read post #2?" apparently not all of it...
    • I queued these up to watch later on the big tv, thanks! I love Lost, have watched it many times as well as The Leftovers, so this show is a must watch for me.
