Smoked Pork Belly On Weber Summit Kamado

Pork Belly is Jeannine's favorite BBQ recipe, adapted from Malcolm Reed and featuring his The BBQ Rub. It's incredibly easy to hold a steady temperature on the Weber Summit Kamado. Give yourself 5 or 6 hours, layer on the flavors every couple of hours while maintaining a temperature suitable low & slow smoking and you will end up with tender morsels of bacon yumminess that the entire family will enjoy!

Good Chop Meat Subscription Service

Good Chop is a new monthly meat subscription service that ships boxes of meat that you can fully customize. This means that you can choose the exact cuts of meat and seafood that you want in your box. For instance: in the medium box plan you get to choose 6 cuts of meat and seafood. If you want to choose to only have 6 packages of filet mignon in you box, then you can do so, and the price of the box would be no different than if you chose to select all 6 packages as pacific cod. 
 
As it is a monthly subscription, customers need to remember to select their cuts each month - if they forget to make their selections in a given month, they'll receive a default selection box. 
 
The menu options from which customers choose their meats change, but mostly Good Chop says that they are mostly adding new products, and not taking products off very often. Some additions coming soon include:
  • Wild-caught MSC certified sea scallops
  • Free-range organic turkey sourced directly from Koch’s farm, a 4 generation family farm located right at the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country 
  • Two USDA Prime beef options: a thick-cut ribeye steak of 12 oz and a tender and juicy 8 oz filet mignon
  • A rare pork t-loin chop, which is a long bone-in chop

Good Chop also says that they tend to keep of their most demanded products all year round, such as USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steaks, Angus Ribeyes, Wild-Caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, Thick-Cut Uncured Bacon, Chicken Breasts... and more. 

At the time of this post, you can can get $80 off of your first three boxes by heading to the this page: https://www.goodchop.com/plans,
 
Good Chop sent a sample box for me to review.  Check out the video for my thoughts and for a quick recipe for the pork chops that were included in my box.

Smoked Beef Short Rib Plates On The Weber Summit Kamado

I had two beef plate ribs from 44Farms and I seasoned one with HeyGrillHey's Beef Rub and the other with Meat Church BBQ’s Holy Cow rub to find out which one my family prefers.

Beef short ribs are a great alternative to smoking a full packer brisket. Same great beef flavor with less effort.

None of the products mentioned below or in the video paid for a sponsorship or a product mention.

The Process

  1. Trim away all of the hard fat from the meat side. Score the membrane on the rib side like a tic tac toe.
  2. Apply a light coat of the rub to the bone side & let it sweat in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Apply a medium coat of the rub to meat side & let it sweat in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Prepare the grill to smoke at 250 degrees. Kenyatta used Fogo lump charcoal & post oak wood chunks.
  5. Place the ribs on the smoker with the meat side up. After a few hours, spritz the ribs with beef broth or apple cider vinegar or another liquid of choice.
  6. After around 5 or 6 hours, check the internal temperature of the ribs. If they are over 165/170, wrap the ribs in butcher paper to help protect the bark and help accelerate the rest of the cook.
  7. At this point, it’s ok to let the temperature inside the cooking chamber rise to around 300 degrees. Our goal is to get the internal temp of the ribs over 203 degrees. This will ensure that the ribs are extremely tender.
  8. After the ribs exceed 203 degrees, remove them from the smoker and let them rest for 30 minutes, then slice them & enjoy!

My Replacement Summit Kamado Grill | Why I Had To Contact Weber Again

In my last video, I gave an overview of the replacement Summit Kamado grill that I received from Weber including a demonstration of how they addressed and fixed the issue of the wobbly stand. Many of you noticed several issues with the replacement grill. I learned that most of the issues were not material and that I could fix them myself. However, there was one flaw that I could not overlook. Please watch the video to learn about the issues and how Weber addressed my biggest concern.

Over the past few weeks, many have asked if I have received my replacement grill. Tune in to learn about my experience and the status of my replacement grill as of Feb. 7, 2021.

Tappecue AirProbes and Stick Burners - Part 1

I bought Tappecue's AirProbe Deluxe Bundle around 3 weeks ago. The bundle includes the Tappecue Touch unit, a power supply for the Touch, two wireless AirProbes and charging cradles and a Getting Started Guide. I have been familiar with the Tappecue brand for years and I knew that they were the first company to make a wi-fi enabled BBQ thermometer but I had never made a purchase from them.

A few years ago I had an unfavorable experience with the Meater Block. I love the concept of having a wireless probe to measure the internal temperature of my food and the temperature of the inside of the cooking chamber, I've just been waiting for a company other than Meater to "get it right".  I believe that ads for Tappecue's AirProbe wireless thermometer started appearing in my Facebook feed early in 2020. I was an early supporter of Meater's Kickstarter campaign and I waited over two years for the product to land on my doorstep..... I vowed not to be one of the first to purchase the AirProbe. 

As the year progressed, I did not hear much about the AirProbe on social media, no overwhelmingly great reviews but nothing negative either. Tappecue's reputation seems to be solid but the company doesn't appear to receive the same buzz in the BBQ community as Fireboard and ThermoWorks. Tappecue struck me as a company with a small but loyal following of consumers who have probably experienced their older products. 

After Thanksgiving, I saw Tappecue's promotion for the AirProbe Deluxe so I decided to give it a try and placed my order. My package from Tappecue arrived shortly thereafter, but it fell off my radar some as I had also purchased the Weber Summit Kamado around the same time. I made videos of my initial impressions of the grill and a few days later, I made a follow-up video describing my discussion with a Weber executive about their plans to replace the early Summit Kamados with new grills with a sturdier stand. 

Around Christmas, I finally got around to cooking on my Weber Summit Kamado for the first time. I thought it would be a good idea to also unbox my Tappecue Touch and the AirProbes and try them for the first time during that same cook. Unfortunately, my initial experience with the AirProbes did not go very well. The setup appeared to be smooth until I tried to connect my AirProbes to the Touch and my iPhone. I continuously received error messages on the AirProbe Direct screen (for a direct Bluetooth connection) in the Tappecue app. I then tried to connect the AirProbes to the Touch. While the Touch seemed to give me some readings from the green probe, I later realized that the green probe readings were not from my green AirProbe. To this day, I still don't know what the Touch was "reading" from the green probe since my AirProbes are the only Tappecue probes that I own and they weren't connecting. 

Nonetheless, I figured that I must have been overlooking something in the setup process so I shut everything down until I could try connecting the AirProbes on a different day. 

On New Year's Day, I decided to try again. I found a video by the makers of Tappecue where the lady showed the process for setting up the AirProbes. I noticed that when she setup the AirProbes using the the AirProbe Direct mode in the app, she did not make any mention of the Touch. I decided to try to connect the AirProbes while leaving the Touch turned off. This time it worked and I was able to connect both of my AirProbes to the app, both in iOS and Android. 

Once connected, I inserted the AirProbes into my small Prime Rib that I was smoking on my LSG 20" offset smoker. 

IMG_0328

The green probe connected to the app right away and gave me temperature readings for the meat and the cooking chamber but the red probe was stuck on "connecting". I figured the red probe would connect after 10 or 20 seconds. Meanwhile, Luna - my 9-week old German Shepherd puppy looked like she had just pooped and was sniffing around it so I immediately rushed over to her which was probably around 30-40 feet away from the smoker. 

IMG_0327

After I cleaned up after Luna, I noticed that the app was showing that I was no longer connected to either AirProbe. I walked back to the smoker hoping that at a minimum, the green AirProbe would reconnect on it's own but it didn't. I waited a few minutes and I tried to force the app to reconnect but the app would not reconnect. Instead the app showed both AirProbes as "connecting". 

All of this made me wonder if the AirProbes are unable to reliably remain connected because of the thick steel in the LSG that does an excellent job of holding temperatures inside of the cooking chamber. I went onto the Team Tappecue fan page on Facebook and asked if others had a sense of how well the AirProbes function inside of well made offset smokers like the LSG. One person replied that he wasn't sure about functionality with stick burners, but  in using the AirProbes with his Assassin grill, he needed to make sure that the Touch unit was within 7-10 feet of the grill. 

Although his response did not fully answer my question about AirProbes and stick burners, it did answer another one of my questions. Do the AirProbes work with the Touch? I assumed that they did because the app itself mentions using the Touch with or without AirProbes. Since my AirProbes were now connected to the app & my phone, I went ahead and turned on the Touch to see if it would also recognize the AirProbes. This time, the Touch saw and read temperatures from both of my AirProbes. 

This was a big relief for me as I really want to like this product. Even if I can't use them inside the thick walls of the LSG, I'm hopeful that they will work inside of the Summit Kamado or inside of my other grills. Next time, I will use the AirProbes with the Touch and I will keep the Touch close to the smoker. 

As such, my grade with the AirProbes and my stick burner is still an "incomplete" so there will need to be a Part 2 to this post. Unless I overlooked something in the setup process, it appears that the Touch should not be turned on when you initially try to connect your AirProbes to the app and your phone. If you have experienced something different, please leave a comment. 

Here's a photo of the finished Prime Rib on the LSG.
