How to Minion Method (Off Set Smoker)

This is an explanation on how to use the Minion Method on your offset smoker. It can also be used on other kettles or WSM. It will lengthen your basket burn time by several hours. I used my custom Gator Pit (Offset) basket for this demonstration.

Smoked Beef Brisket- (how to trim)

Here I am showing how I aggressively trim a brisket. I am using my Gator Pit off-set smoker to bbq. I used my stoker to aide me in making the cook more simple. I used Hickory and Pecan through out the cook.

Dry Age Ribeye – Part1 (Weston Pro 2300)

Dry aging your beef could not be any easier and it can all be done from the comfort of your own home. Thats right, with the help of a product from Umai you can dry age your beef safely and easily. Dry aging will intensify the beef flavor as well as break down the muscle fibers in the meats to make a more enjoyable experience. This process is lengthy and thus one of the reasons why its so expensive if purchased elsewhere. This video is how I used my Weston Pro 2300 vacuum sealer with the UMAI product. It was a little challenging but I am sure it will be well worth it. You can do this with almost any vacuum sealer. After the meat is vacuumed sealed, you must keep it in a well ventilated refrigerator thats at 35F – 38F for 28 DAYs. At that time you can take the meat out and prep it for use and I will show that process so please stay tuned.
