This weekend we had a dry run at the Smoky Okie Ranch for the blazeathon comp next weekend.

Somewhere in between honing the fine arts of smoking on hasty bakes and consuming silver canned pop we managed to snap a couple of pics.

Firing up some Mexican lump Charcoal.

Nice looking pix Glued. I see you finally figured out you have to CHARGE those batteries and have them with you at the same time.

I really like those thermo pens. I wanna get one sometime.

You guys are gonna do alright. Especially with the kitchen help (PB) like Kev!

You'll have to ask Pigbutt for his filleting technique but basically you "unroll the sirloin (larger) end of a boneless loin bystarting to slice @ the crease where the bone would attach. What you end up with is a flat, ookie sheet shaped piece of loin about 3/4" thick.

The stuffing is ground pork w/ ground smoked jowl (for fat content as well as internal smoke flavor), chopped green bell pepper, chopped onion, Cajun seasoning and a little Jack Miller BBQ sauce.

Roll it like a jelly roll and truss every 1 1/2 " and do what you want to cook it. I like to pull @ 147 IT. You can lard it as you cook, baste it or whatever. This one kinda egged out cuz we made it up a day ahead. Usually they form a rounder pinwheel.

BTW-Good camera work Jeremy, And Joe, the camera batteries died 2 or 3 times throughout the process.

Gentlemen, those are some fine looking vittles you presented to the smoke Gods. Also appears the smoke Gods blessed them real nicely with the TBS. Good luck with the comp. and keep up the good work.

Must have been some serious over cooked food there for them to have to eat that much evidence. :msn-wink:
