You need a winch. It would make cleaning those pigs a lot easier.

Be done on the pit about 4-6am....then let it all rest and marinate in their juices....should be an awesome lunch tomorrow.....

...which brings me to my next problem (the "wench" was the 1st problem)...LOL

When I cook, I tend to use old family recipes that make way too much for us. When I grill, it's a whole hog (or as in this case, lot's of meat) all at once...

Can anyone recommend a good vacuum-pac food storage system that is a good value for both the unit and consumables (bags)? I need to be able to store cooked and raw foods for future use in the most economical way possible. Right now using freezer paper and Ziploc bags but need something much better than that.

Thanks! I need something! My chili recipe uses 6 lbs of meat (plus all the other stuff) and I have an amazing "Jalapeņo soup" recipe that make about 2 gallons of soup! It's all wonderful 'til you've been eating on it for a week or so! Kind of wears on the appetite after a while!

I open them up periodically to marinade and the open the up the last few hrs for a better smoke flavor (cooked with mesquite) .... it maintains moisture to keep them tender by keeping them wrapped. Also, lets me cook multiple "flavors" in the same pan. Ease of handling.

How about sharing that Jalapeno soup recipe. Any soup that you can eat for a week has to be good. smile

Re: Rolling Smoke....in the pit! - 01/08/15 08:18 PM

yep ... definately need to get a vacuum sealer. I will check to see what brand/model ours is. My wife wanted one for Christmas a few years ago, SIL bought her one (less expensive model), wife researched and found a much better choice (but a lot more $$$). It's been great ... cause when I fire my pit, I normally will load it up with all sorts of various things (brisket, pork loin, ribs, sausage, burgers, etc.), way too much to consume in a few days. I usually do several different sets of ribs using different rubs & flavoring, pull when I am done smoking, let cook, vacuum seal and to the freezer for later. Then my wife usually pulls out a set, thaws, cuts in half, drops in crock pot some morning with a little water & a bouillon cube on low ... ready when we get home. Similar with hamburger patties (beef & sausage), cool & vacuum seal, makes for an easy meal later on or when unexpected company shows up.

all yours looks good!!!
