Smoked Steak

Quick entry to document how I smoked my last steak.

Coat Steaks (go with a little larger than an inch cut) with Olive Oil and rub.

Smoke at 225 for about 45 mins (I used Hickory wood chips).

Let reset for 15-20 mins.

Smoked Chicken Wings

Quick post to document how I typically smoke chicken wings...

Toss wings in a ziplock back, add EVOO, and the rub you would like to use. Rub the wings in the bag to coat them with the EVOO & rub.

Smoker should be at 250-275 (I use 250, but if going for crisper go higher).

Smoke for about 1.5 hours or until the meat reaches 165-170 degrees.

Basically, just a quicker version of: http://www.smoking-meat.com/october-4-2012-smoked-chicken-wings

Todd Wilbur's BBQ Sauce (plus cayenne)

Trying out the following BBQ sauce today...
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 ½ teaspoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon hickory liquid smoke (concentrated)
½ teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
pinch citric acid
+ 2 1/2 shakes of cayenne pepper

Heat on low for 2 hours.

(Pretty much the same sauce that Chili's uses)
Also did Baby Backs following the same process as last time (except pulled them a little bit early 20-25 mins and used hickory wood.) They are amazing! Sauce is really good too.
