I've done this quite a few times now because it's one of my favorites to make.  I started cutting mine up into thirds or quarters to speed up the process of the pulling, and to get more bark and surface area for the rub and smoke.  We're having a party for a friends 30th birthday tomorrow and he wants this for dinner, but he also wants to play golf in the morning.  I wouldn't be back to the house until probably 1, and I don't know if this give me enough time to do it all and be done before 8 or 9.  I'll have a hangry mob on my hands by then.  So, to my question...

 

Can I smoke them tonight and get them to 165-170 IT, wrap them and put them in the fridge, then reheat and put with the peppers/onions tomorrow when I get back?  Being realistic, they'd probably go back on around 1:45-2:00 (in foil to stay moist, right?), then with the vegetables around 3.  I hate to mess with perfection, but it seems more convenient for everyone this way.

It worked out great!  It was the first time I'd seen or used Strawberry's steak rub (I use their bbq rub all the time), and I think that really kicked it up due to the high salt content.  I usually find myself adding salt towards the end, but it wasn't necessary.  I'll probably do it this way again in the future when I know I can't be around for the entire day.  Very convenient.

This has been on my to do list for some time. Finally gave it a whirl today. Absolutely fantastic!

The chuck roast I had was only 2.2 lbs, so I reduced the worcestershire and only used two large bell peppers and an onion. And 4 banana peppers that my wife grew. Could have gone ahead and added one more pepper and onion, there was a lot of meat. Used Dizzy Pig Raising the Steaks rub and some smoked paprika. Wonderful flavor! Put the roast On the akorn at 11:30 at 250, using the Tempmaster Pro controller. Into the dutch oven at 1:45, raised temp to 325. Shredded at 4 and back on for another hour at 250-300ish. Ready to eat at 5. I'll do this again!

      Wanted to try out one of my new knives so decided what better way that to make some Pico de Gallo. Sorry I didn’t get any pics as I was filming a video instead. (Video link below)

      Thanks for watching.
       
      The recipe is in the video but not listed in writing. I shared it on this site before so if you don’t want to listen to the entire video you can hit this link instead.

      If I had stopped at the cheap Mercer knife, I had purchased from Amazon I’d have been fine. (See previous thread) Unfortunately, there was a sale over Labor Day at Cutlery and More, so my wife is now mad at me because I purchased 3 more new knives.
       
      She suggested I have a problem  and to this I must agree.  I didn’t “need” any of these knives, but one was such a good price and the other two are, as Old Man Parker said on Christmas Story, “Indescribably Beautiful!”.  Below is a short video of the objects of my wife’s wrath.
      This first knife is a 9” Dragon Storm Chef’s knife by Apogee Cutlery. It’s made of BD1N steel with a HRC of 63. It was on Clearance with an additional 20% off for Labor Day.
       
      This next knife is an Enso SG2 7” Bunka knife. It’s made of 101 layers of stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was on sale with special price and 20% off for Labor Day.
       
      This last knife is an Miyabi Artisan 9.5” Kiritsuke knife. It’s made of 2 layers of hammered stainless with a SG2 steel core with an HRC of 63. It was offered at special introductory price for Labor Day.
       
      Here’s the video:

      I’m going to have to cook some good food using these knives to get out of the Doghouse. 
       
      Thanks for looking.

      The last time we rented an Airbnb I vowed to buy a knife roll and bring some of my knives with me so I could have the use of sharp knives instead on the dull knives they always seem to have. (It’s not that they need to be expensive, but if they were at least sharp I wouldn’t complain)
       
      Well we just got back from spending a week in Reno at an Airbnb and you can guess how the knives were. So, I’ve made good on my vow and got myself a cheap knife roll. I also purchased this Mercer Millenia 8” chef knife to go in it.
       
      As I said they don’t need to supply expensive knives and this new Mercer knife is proof of this. (It cost me whooping $18.00) So here is a video of the new knife and roll and the different knives I’ll be taking with me when we go on our next trip like this. (An assortment of mostly Mercer and Victorinox knives)

      I picked up 2 lb. of 98% fat free ground turkey breast the other day.  I made some more of the 4 bean Turkey Chili I made a month ago with it but this time it was virtually free of points. (Only 1 WW Purple point)
       
      I diced up all the onions and peppers, mixed up the spices. Here are most of the ingredients.

       

       
      1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
      2 lb. Pounds 98/7 Lean Ground Turkey
      ½ Yellow Onion (Diced)
      ½ Red Onion (Diced)
      I Poblano Pepper (Diced)
      1 Red Bell Pepper (Diced)
      1 ½ Teaspoons Minced Garlic
      1 6 Oz. Can Diced Green Chiles
      1 15 Oz. Can Corn
      1 15 Oz. Can Crushed Tomatoes
      1 15 Oz. Can Tomato Sauce
      1 15 Oz. Can Chili Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Black Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Dark Red Kidney Beans
      1 15 Oz. Cannellini Beans
      1 15 Oz. Can Chicken Broth
      2 Tbsp. Chili Power
      1 Tsp. Cumin
      ½ Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Chipotle Pepper Power
      ½ Tsp. Black Pepper
      ½ Tsp. White Pepper
      ½ Tsp. Salt
      ¼ Tsp. Cinnamon
       
      While I was prepping everything our new dog Lady came in to visit.

      I got out my enameled Dutch oven and placed the OO. I put it on the side burner of my Gasser.

      I put the Turkey in once it was heated up.

      I cooked it until just slightly brown.

      Next, I added the Poblano pepper, onions, Bell pepper and garlic. I covered this and cook it for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

      Once the veggies had softened,

      I added in the spices and rest of the ingredients.

       

       

       

      and mixed everything together.

      I brought this to a boil and then covered. I turned the burner to low and let the chili simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

      Here it is after cooking.

      Here it is in a bowl, garnished with onion, cilantro, some lime and some Non-Fat Greek yogurt.

      This was delicious and only 1 point per serving. (A serving = 1 cup. This was a large bowl, so it was a double serving so 2 points) Eating like this makes me forget I'm losing weight.

      With the wife and I on the Weight Watchers plan, I’ve been avoiding some of my favorite Mexican dishes. Now that I think about it, this really isn’t necessary if I’m carefully what I choose and how I prepare the dishes. Take fajitas for example. A protein, seasoning and some veggies. Made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and not much oil the fajitas themselves are only 1 point per serving. I can live with a diet that includes chicken fajitas, can’t you? Well, that leads me to the sides. Made carefully many of the sides are 0 to only 2 points per serving. Follow along with me and I’ll show you how I prepared everything.
       
      The night before I mixed up some blue corn masa to make up some tortillas. (This is the one item I couldn’t cheat on to lower the point value. 3 tortillas = 5 points)

       
      I also got out the onion and bell peppers to cut up

       
      and mixed up the fajitas seasoning.
       
       
      Ingredients:
      1/2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
      1 tsp. ground cumin
      1 tsp. smoked paprika
      1 tsp. garlic powder
      1/2 tsp. onion powder
      1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
      1/4 tsp. black pepper
      1/2 tsp. kosher salt to taste
      1/4 tsp. Chipotle pepper                                                                                                                  1/4 tsp. Oregano         
       
      The next day started out by making a batch of my Mexican rice. (1 Point per serving) Started out by sautéing the veggies.

      I measured out 2 cups of Brown rice, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 tbsp. of OO and put this in the rice maker. I now added 1 cup of Clamato Picante juice and 3 cups of chicken stock.

      Next, I added the veggies to the pot.

      I closed the lid and pressed start. Here are the results.

      Next up was the Guacamole. (2 points per serving) Cut up 1 medium Hass avocado.

      Now I added 1 tbsp. of light mayo, some granulated garlic, 5 heaping tbsp. of my Pico de Gallo, some fresh squeezed lime juice and mixed this up and covered.

      Next up were some frijoles. I sautéed some diced onion, 1/2 a jalapeno, some bell pepper and corn and then added two kinds of black beans. (0 points per serving)

      I now got out 3 boneless skinless breasts and coated them with the fajitas seasoning.

      I took them and the cut-up veggies out to my gas grill side burner.

      Now I needed to make the tortillas, so I rolled up 6 balls of masa about the size of a golf ball. I flatted them a little to make them easier to press out.

      I was some issues with the masa sticking to the press so had to experiment with dusting the bottom with some of the blue core masa.

      I heated them up on a C.I. griddle, very lightly sprayed with some OO.

      Next I sprayed my 12” Camp Chef C.I. skillet with some OO. After it was heated it up I put the 3 breast in and cooked them for 8 minutes per side.

       

       

      Once they were cooked I removed them to a cutting board and was left with the fond.

      I dumped in the onions and bell peppers and let them start to cook.

      While them were cooking I sliced up the chicken.

      Now I dumped in the chicken

      and stirred it in and continued to cook until the veggies had soften.

      Now I brought it all in and plated it up with a Modelo Negra.

       

       

       

      Here is a shot once I took it inside to eat.

      Gratuitous side shot close ups.

       

      OMG!!! This was so delicious!
