I was wondering if everyone grills year round.  For me, I struggled using a charcoal smoker when temps dropped below 20.  Now that I have been using a pellet smoker with a blanket, this is no longer an issues.  I did choose not to smoke this weekend while our snow event (24 inches of snow)was in progress. Not so much because of the snow but more because of the wind (~40 mph).

There is no grilling season.

BBQ is year round in our family.

I've been known to shovel snow to get to the grills and smoker.

You are correct. Wind is the biggest enemy to my smoker.  Rain doesn't affect it very much.

This bacon will get honey glaced and then Off in the smoker. Was kept salted for three weeks straight.

I pretty much grill and smoke all year long. A pork belly and/or bacon has been on my list to try. Sven..your stuff looks amazing!!

I stocked up today and blew my bourbon budget. Ready for smoking all winter.  Chicken legs, thighs, and breasts, whole NY strip cut into steaks, one whole ribeye cut into steaks and another one cut half steaks and half left as a "prime rib" rib roast for Christmas. Couldn't resist ribeye for $7.99/lb and NY strip for $4.99.

From the ribeyes that got cut up (see post above) I had one odd numbered steak that was huge. So I left that one out of what got frozen and smoked it today and then seared it off. Smoked some chicken wings and potatoes along with it. That ribeye was almost a full 2" thick. Me and Mrs. Clueby didn't even eat half of it

Got 3 inches of fresh snow on Friday so I did some ribs on my pellet smoker on Saturday.  I decided to to these a bit hotter and went with 275 instead of 250.  Did teh usual, 2 hours on the smoker, then wrap and back on the smoker for another 2 hours, then sauce and back on for 30 minutes.I use Sweet Baby Ray Sauce but thin it with Apple Cider Vinegar to cut the sweet a bit.  They turned out great.  Topped off my day with a bit of Weller.

Double smoked ham with a homemade glaze of syrup, brown sugar, mustard, and orange juice. Then I sprinkled sugar on the raw. It actually wasn't too sweet. Multiple people said it was the best ham they've ever had. I can't say I disagree.

Looks amazing!! I was GOING to do a prime rib but I got overruled in favor of finger foods instead. Guess I'll need to think of a reason to make the prime rib.

Smoked an eye of sirloin.  We made a bourbon/thyme/mustard/shallot sauce for it.  Served with baked potatoes and broccoli.  A very nice bottle of German Spatburgender with it.

Did my usual Hoppin John for New Years but added a brisket to the meal.   My wife made cornbread. Turned out great.

For the 26th, traveled to The Live Free or Die state to visit my parents and celebrate my fathers 92nd birthday. Went to a local butcher and got his last prime rib roast. Made some rub including salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and ground coffee. Reverse sear on my dads grill.

Local supermarket had CAB ribeyes or rib roasts for sale just before Christmas at a good price so I bought the whole sub-primal in cryovac. Made a couple 2 bone roasts for NYE. The rest I cut up into 1-1/2” steaks, vac sealed, and put into freezer.49AD1954-D774-4BD1-B799-2A741023EC62.thumb.jpeg.1b9fa73824e1a712b3493fc77ea615ce.jpeg74391892-9C94-41FB-BCEA-FEA93791F6D9.thumb.jpeg.7be57251dbe1e40be0d7dfbf4a7d52fe.jpeg
