Happy Weekend, more importantly… Happy FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND! I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day weekend around here means lots of family and delicious recipes. I absolutely love smoked meats but, I’ve never had a smoker so I’ve always stuck to grilling. When offered the chance to review (and GIVEAWAY – keep reading) the Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smokehouse, I was ecstatic! What a fabulous Father’s Day Gift (or anytime gift for Dad)! I know my family will love having this for years.
This weekend, I’m spending Father’s Day with my in-laws who also love good smoked meat so we have brisket that already has our mouth watering…! You’ll see their cute puppy, “Mick”, in the picture of my smoker above. He is very intrigued by all the talk of smoked meats. I love that it’s electric, too! It has wheels so it’s easy to wheel around the deck. Super easy!
I also received (and also giving away – woohoo) John McLemore’s books ”Dadgum! That’s Good“and ”Dadgum! That’s Good, Too!” that are made for the Masterbuilt Smoker. I have already marked about a dozen or two recipes to try this summer. They look seriously delicious. Think of Fall Tailgating and the holidays too? Smoked turkey, anyone? Mmmm…!!
I’m excited to share a recipe with you, too! This is for Smoked Pork Butt which would be perfect for making sandwiches or eating with some delicious side dishes (like smoked potato casserole – yum).
- 7 lbs Fresh pork butt
- ½ tsp Salt
- ¼ cup Brown Sugar
- 2 tbsp Chili Powder
- Mix ingredients and rub onto pork butt.
- Cook pork butt for 5 hours in 225 degree pre heated smoker using apple wood chips during the first 3 hours.
- After 5 hours remove butt and wrap in heavy foil.
- Cook for an additional 1 to 1 ½ hours. Internal temperature should be 160 degrees. Serve.
How delicious does this Smoked Potato & Green Chile Casserole look?! SIGN ME UP! I can’t wait to make it with my new smoker. Now, it’s time for YOU to win one! Enter below! I know it won’t arrive in time for Father’s Day but we hope your Dad won’t mind too much ;) And you’ll be able to enjoy smoking all sorts of yummies for years to come!
