  1. Looking for for the recipe of kielbasa or smoke sausage stuffed with cream cheese and slice of jalapeno warped in bacon. I lost it or deleted it

  2. Hey, Jeff-

    Just went to Amazon, via your gateway, and ordered some Ekogrips and an injector, hope you’re still getting the bonus from Amazon. If not, I’d like to know, as it’s much easier to get stuff through my own gateway.

    Be well & safe journeys,


  3. some where can remember if was from u or someone other than u about a tenderloin (pork) wrapped in bacon and then smoked with yours rub or not ?

  4. I have a question, how long should you soak wood chips in water, these are about the size of half your fist. I wanted to get the most smoke. Seems the longer you soak them the less smoke. I’m just want to learn what is the best way.


    1. I recommend leaving the wood dry for all smoking. Wetting the wood doesn’t do a lot for the process other than to cool down your coals/fire. Others recommend it but I have never seen a decent reason for using wet wood.

  5. Jeff, I have to tell you I did the Mesquite smoked prime rib for Christmas and it was amazing your rub on this meat just makes the meat melt in your mouth. YOU should start a smoking BBQ school I would attend and so would some of my friends you the best Jeff Merry Christmas and have a great New year………………
