Other Meat

Besides the usual chicken, ribs, brisket and pork butt, what other things do you guys throw on the BBQ? Any good or unusual recipes? :biggrin: :biggrin:

On my WSM I've done:

almonds
bacon wrapped scallops (then crisp in frying pan, roll in real maple syrup, serve)
cheese
chuck roll (whole blade roast)
baked beans
brined salmon
flavour brined turkeys
pork loin
pork chop
rib-eye steaks
some guys do spuds (potatoes), it's on my To Do list alright?
smoked peppers (I've done habaneros)
standing rib roast (Prime Rib)
damn it, one of these days I'm gonna try some soft or medium tofu ...
no fruits yet

on edit: various sausages too

I haven't done the scallops that Shawn has nor have I been as successful as he with almonds but I've done his list (with the potatoes) plus top and bottom rounds, beef ribs, tri-tip, various cuts of boar, fresh hams, various sausages, Roma tomatoes, jals (I've only done habs on a kettle), mushrooms, bison cuts and whole pigs (not on a WSM), and I think that's it.

I am really hesitant to try lamb.

I have only had it a couple of times in restaurants or at family/friends places and it has been 50/50. Some of it has had 'mutton' taste, the rest has not. I LOATHE the 'mutton' taste.

Is there a way to be sure to avoid it folks?


thnx,

Shawn

Buckboard bacon is good. I've done smoked domestic duck three times and it came out great. I'd reccommend smoked duck for somrthing different. I've done scallops wrapped in thin strips of duck, kinda like Shawn's bacon wrapped scallops. Prischutto also is a great scallop wrapper.

Shawn

My experience has been that the larger the lamb cut the more likely the mutton thing will occur. My favorite lamb is to buy a rack (nearly always from New Zealand in my market) and cut into chops, one bone per chop. Then I put 'em into a bowl with olive oil and the dry package of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. It's the dry packet that you mix with oil and vinegar to make Italian salad dressing. Then it's flop 'em on the gasser.

Thanks Griff ... sounds like the best way to avoid 'mutton' taste is to buy the smallest lamb cuts you can find ... correct?

What I've done - Butts, picnics, turkeys, chickens, cornish game hens, chuck roasts, pork/beef/venison ribs, venison roasts, pastrami, salmon, trout, bluefish.

I didn't see anyone mention if they've tried the hardboiled eggs? I've heard about them but haven't gotten the gumption to give them a try.

What did you try with the almonds and what happened to them?

Shawn-- Yes, cuts from smaller lambs produce less lamb-y meat. It's not necessarily the smallest cuts, it's cuts from smaller animals. I've had rack of lamb taste lamb-ier than shoulder, owing to the age of the lamb when slaughtered.

Griff-- Huge duck fan here. I've always kettled them. Definitely need to try one in the WSM.

Larry-- Me too on the eggs. The smoked eggs turned into deviled ones sounds too good to miss.

Nick-- I think (I know actually) that is was too many irons in the fire on both occasions I smoked almonds. Once the temps got too high (the pigs loved them), the other time they were oversmoked. I minced them and used them in dips and breading. I love smoked almonds; need to do them again.

Shrimp and lobster are great on the Barbie (grilled not smoked). Nice, sweet and crispy on the outside.

I've always kept mine simple. Spread them in a aluminum pan with holes poked in the bottom. Tababsco sauce and salt marinade for 1 hour. Smoke them for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Always seems good to me.

Sound great to me. I like the Tabasco idea. A friend sent me some excellent ones he did recently. Both times I did them I was juggling indoor and outdoor food prep for a few dozen people arriving any moment--couldn't/didn't keep my eye on the ball.

Only one so far here Nick. It was good, a bit dry cuz I took it too high ... pics are here click the 2004-09-26 Pork Loin Roast and Chicken link.

This loin roast was simply seasoned with a bit of Lawry's, smoked then sauced with the Jalapeno Mango sauce I posted on TVWB.

I want to try brined smoked pork loin or this marinade Kevin posted here on thick boneless loin chops.

I also did some pork tenderloin pieces as if they were ribs, (rubbed, foiled, glazed). They were pretty good. If I do it again though I won't add juice when I foil them.

Regarding lamb, Kevin said it better than I did. To avoid the mutton taste, try to get cuts from smaller animals. I probably would have said it that way last night but I had been drinking. Hey, it was Saturday night.
