    So.. I've been cheating on my grillouts.. I don't sprinkle seasonings on my burgers, I pour everything I use into a measuring cup, add butter, mix it up with the butter really well and then butter the top of the burgers. Oh man.. They come out so good, Lol. :p

    That looks like some kind of wonderful!
    One of my daughters was visiting all week in from California. I didn't have time to smoke something so we ate out every night. We enjoyed some quality meals but nothing that compares to what I can produce on the smoker. Not even taking into consideration the expense, travel and waiting time, and the less than comfortable atmosphere of dinning in a restaurant, the meals lacked the personal attention and groomed meals one can provide at home. I love my cooking lol.
    After eating nothing but rich foods for a week, the wife and I will enjoy some smoked beef hot dogs and chips tonight. :)

    Google photos is balking at the moment, or I'd post up a pic of my side. Broccoli tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, fresh garlic, and Parmesan cheese. It's on the grill now.

    Mmmmmm. Have you tried avocado oil instead of olive? That's about all we cook with anymore.

    Yay, google photos finally woke up. :rolleyes: Precooked. still waiting on the cooked version, but basically, toss that on the grill at 375ish for 10 minutes.

    That looks better than I imagined! I will have to give that a try. I do a lot of fresh asparagus spears that way. Super good. Love broccoli and so does the wife. Thanks!

    The avocado oil is a bit more expensive than olive but my wife assures me it's better for me :) It cooks well and adds a nice flavor and all. I like it for it's high smoke/flash point.

    The recipe I started with says x amount of this and y amount of that, blah, blah, blah. I use a gallon bag and toss fresh broccoli in with a couple tablespoons each of lemon juice and olive oil, four or five fresh minced cloves of garlic, and grated Parmesan (the cheap crap in the plastic jugs) and let it sit for a half hour or so. I like to toss it a lot to get the parm embedded deep down in the broccoli. Then I pan it up and top it with fresh shredded parm to grill. I pull it when the cheese is melty and the broccoli is starting to brown.

    When I get that request, a pic would show chunks of celery, onion, and bell pepper hanging out. Last couple of times I made it with bork (80% ground beef and 20% ground pork) It works really well for the dish.

    I'm fixing burritos tonight with no help from the smoker. The wife works her last night before full retirement tomorrow night... no smoking tomorrow either. :(

    I'm meeting friends at the cabin this weekend.... doing a deck extension and a set of stairs.
    I think I'll smoke up a pork butt to feed the masses. Sounds good and easy.

    i normally add peppers but it was a rush job and I didn't want to eat after 7 PM. Celery not so much. :p That's 50% beef, 50% meatball mix(ground beef, ground pork, ground veal).
    I love burritos. :)
    You can keep the free labor motivated by the aroma. :D

    Your meat mix sounds great! Is that a bbq sauce on top? All I've ever done is a tomato sauce/paste.

    Yes, Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ. It adds some sweetness with a nice glaze. If I do bacon I use ketchup. OK, really, my meatloaf is really just thrown together and I add stuff depending on my mood. :p

    That's the beauty of a loaf dish. I've tried about every veggie you can imagine. I've tried both green and ripe olives. I even tossed some leftover mac n cheese in one. Everything works and it's as you say... wherever the mood leads you.

    If you smoke it, 225 until the meat comes to temp (160). Don't put it in a loaf pan or you won't get the smoke ring. ;)

    My son makes a beef and sausage roll with cheese inside. He wraps it in a bacon weave and then smokes it up. It's an amazing dish. He's told me of rolls he's made that were basically the same but had diced pepperoni or diced hot sausages added. That I've never tasted but it has to be good.

    I'm heading over to my son's house for the day. He is smoking a beef roast to pull for some Mexican dishes he's serving for Father's Day. Sounds interesting!

    I can say that the meal at my son's was fantastic. He smoked the beef roast then the last couple of hours it finished up in a deep pan of hot sauce, peppers, and onions. He then let it rest around an hour and drained the liquid and pulled it. The beef, pepper, and onion medley was then served with home made tortillas, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and cheese. His mother-in-law made the tortillas and her special sauce for the soft tacos. She is full blooded Hispanic and she makes some wonderful dishes... and her sauce is HOT!!! Served up with chips and cold beer made for a great dinner. All I had to do was eat. :)
