 Patience

Hey folks, the time has come to hang up my hat.  Lil’Iron and I have spent the better part of two years putting this site together.  It will still exist but in a different form.

I always wanted to share my favorite recipes and make it possible for anybody to get a professional result using their backyard smoker. 

The fear of being redundant has come. 

I can only show so many ways to do chickens, ribs and pork shoulders.  The videos on this site give you all the basics and a few tips.  I do hope you will use them if you need to and pass them on to friends and family.

I have had a great time and met many good people.  I will still answer all my emails and maybe from time to time put up something new I found.

Thank you all for your input and your friendship. 

God Bless you,

BigIron

Well folks this weekend we did it.

Here at the BigIron we are at awe that the site passed 100,000 hits today.  I am so proud because who would have ever thought the site would have generated this much interest from a regular guy with a Char-Griller.

In celebration and in honor of Labor day I decided to buy a big ol’ honking piece of meat….A whole Arm Roast.

This was about 26-28 pounds…..to be honest I was in shock from the price and I tore the label off before I could check it.  The butcher told me but I forgot the exact weight……but hey, this was a special occasion so price be damned.

Lil’ Iron told me once, she never saw a Brink’s truck following a hearse to the cemetery…..so with that in mind, I bought it.


I thought it would be fun to give everyone a way to see this marvelous feast.  Click on the pictures below to see the full size….then prepare to be hungry!

Here is a shot of one slice of this Arm Roast. It is served on the largest restaurant platters we own.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.  Lil’ Iron and I sure do thank all of you for your support.

Have a great Labor Day,

BigIron

Wow!  My buddy Dave wrote and said I was about to hit 100,000 hits.  I just can’t believe the people that have found this site useful.

I am humbled and honored that you folks have found this site to be useful and your results have been just like mine, GREAT!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In honor of this milestone I decided to do something really special.  I am shooting a video for a 25-28 pound beef arm roast.  It’s kinda like beef clod PLUS!

This will be the biggest thing I have ever done and the chargriller is bending from the weight. 

Stay tuned…………………….

I am so excited.  The local butcher here in town is on the prowl for a 18lb beef clod. 

For those of you going huh?, it is also known as a beef shoulder.

The one I smoked a while back was great and it’s been over a year since I did one. 

On one end, it tastes like roast beef, and on the other side it tastes like steak.  How can you lose with a combination like that?

After we strap on the feedbag for the 4th, I will take the leftovers and vacuum pack’em and wait…….and wait……and then in the winter……. SHEPHERD’S PIE.

Oh my goodness…..Lil’Iron makes the best using this smoked clod.  It is kinda like the gift that keeps on giving all year.

I will have pics and a 4th of July video to boot.  You know this will be really fun because a lot of folks outside of Texas have never tasted it, or even know what it is.

If you want, do something different this 4th of July, celebrate with a Texas tradition.  Smoked Beef Clod.

Have a great weekend,

BigIron
