Christmas dinner

The wifey brought home a strip sirloin roast about 4lbs. This is the first year we have not had a house full of kids and family so we are not stressing much about the menu. I was going to thick slice and grill it but decided to cook it whole on the wsm. I put a bit of spicey garlic rub on it after trimming off the fat and on the smoke at about 170*. It is still close to 80* outside and chillin on the porch watching the smoker chug away and a beer next to me. Hope yer Christmas is going as well as mine. Best wishes to all!

Re: Christmas dinner

Here is the beer I have been enjoying. I first found this when I went to visit my daughter in Tallahassee. One of my favorite IPAs. It isn't available locally so I have to be creative. She transfered here to finish her degree so when she goes to visit her boyfriend I insist she bring me back a supply.

Re: Christmas dinner

Now I get why the wifey wanted it smoked. She got me a neat pair of these bear paw grabbers! Looks like they will be handy for pork time, but they worked just fine getting this little cut off the grates.
Off the smoker and resting for a bit.

Re: Christmas dinner

Here is the finished product. We had some red potatoes and cauliflower and some biscuts, plenty of starch! The beer with dinner was a Harviestoun Old Engine Oil. Really nice scottish ale.

That looks pretty darn good GH. Have you shut down your double barrel smoker? Those wsm's sure make life easy.

Sad to say I have not used the db smoker in ages. It needs a new burn barrel and every time I think about it gettting a new one for it I remember how simple the wsm is and how I can leave it during the night to get some sleep. Although I do miss the smokier flavor from the big baby.

Re: Christmas dinner

Great looking Christmas meal. I'm going to have to get a pair of those bear claws. Tiered of pulling pork with my arthritic hands.

Re: Christmas dinner

Had some old comp chums who swore by the gizmos. Now my pushed pork is so tender I just use a couple of plastic forks..or a couple of dove feathers if I can find some laying around in the yard.

Re: Christmas dinner

Don't know yet about the pulling ability of these things yet but I have used them for taking meat off the grill and the turkey off the can and to hold the meat while slicing. So far it is aces!

Re: Christmas dinner

Glad to hear of a product which works as advertised. I have a pair of Acemart tongs which can hold a baby hippo if a person has the hand strength to squeeze it hard enough. Have had them for years. Dont think it be possible to cook without em. Eglund brand or similar. Made in USA. Might consider adding a pair of those to your cooking arsenal one day. Now if you already have some..I take all this back of course
