Totally in love
Last summer when I made a run to the local dump in northern MN, I lugged home a Brinkmann All-in-One smoker. As often is the case, I haul something home and don't use it right away. In my defense, the DH hauled the bag of charcoal I'd bought back to his house in the city--I hunted high and low for it at the farm and at my house in the city. Well, he confessed that he had taken it home. Last night I finally used the Brinkmann. I snagged about 25 lb of eye of round last week for less than $2/lb. I marinated 2 thick steaks in a bit of mushroom soy sauce, garlic, some grated onion, ginger, and S&P. OMG, the best steak I've ever grilled. Even without putting any "wood chips" in, the smoky flavor of the meat was amazing! I definitely am looking to use it again.
Any tips on using it--I'd like to smoke some turkey thighs--and some salmon--would be appreciated.
