Here's my entry for October's PP challenge. This is actually a double leftover. I made sloppy joes using leftover pork smoked in my Akorn. Since that's basically a pp sandwich that will not be my submission. I decided a pp omelette was the ticket with a Carolina twist BBQ sauce and coleslaw. It was scrumptious. Chopped Onions, red peppers, green peppers, yellow peppers and a 3 cheese blend rounded out the rest of the ingredients.
My sister gifted our mom and me a steak dinner for our birthdays this month. Meaning she bought the steaks and I cooked them. I used a mix of seasoning salts, Lawry's, garlic salt, and something else my dad had in the cabinet to season them. I wish I could have really let the seasoning salts do their job for awhile, but basically just let them come up to room temperature since they were purchased today and we were eating them tonight. I low and slowed them on my Akorn for about an hour @250ish using my BBQube and Bluetooth temp monitor to get them to about 115-120 internal. I then transferred them to some cast iron skillets with melted butter in them I had heated to 450-500 on my dad's gas burner and seared them for 1 minute per side. Overall fantastic results. I wanted a good medium/medium-rare for mine and I think I got it dead on. Money shots provided.
New toy for Akorn pitmasters! I made a pellet grill conversion on my Akorn in June and now it's going into production. Basically I ripped out a pellet feeder from a small pellet grill and made an adapter at the bottom of the Akorn grill. I just got the patent pending status so I can post it now. Here is a write up on the project. I'll update when we got the production prototype made...probably within a month.
