Coffee! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Coffee!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Coffee and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!!
1 to 2 hours
InstructionsWe purchased pre-made iced tea and coffee from the grocery store but you could just as easily use your normal homemade coffee or iced tea to use. Pour the Coffee and Iced tea into foil pans and put them in a smoker. You will want to keep the temperature as low as possible to avoid evaporation. Smoke them at 150, or lower if possible, for 1-2 hours depending on how much smoke you want to try to pick up. Take out and add ice if you are doing a iced coffee (this is how we did it) or serve hot, for the Iced Tea add ice.
So, Will it BBQ?
If you like drinking the water that you used to douse a campfire then by all means this is for you! You could watch our video without the sound and you would be able to tell how much both Austin and I hated this one! Austin brought up the point that this might have been okay if we have smoked the beans instead of the liquid but I was not going to give this another chance no matter what he said! This was a huge NO! This will absolutely NOT BBQ!

I thought it would be bad
@ChrisTheWizard You were 100% correct, we have done a few things that were not great but this is the only one we have done so far that was truly awful!
@parksider Thanks for the follow up!! I was really watching the internal temperature when they were in the rolling (HOT) water and making sure to pull them right at the 165. And then right into the ice water bath.
You guys got a great job! Im pretty passionate about this kinda stuff. I enjoy it a lot and love doing R and D stuff! Keep up the fun work!
@Jonathon Yes Jonathon-it’s in your head
@mikeihuntr My only advice is to keep the water around 170F, not a rolling boil. If the casing are too tight they WILL explode then you have a really big pot of bad soup! A nice simmer is the way to go, take them out 155-160 and into a water bath. Here is a pic, we just use the turkey fryer with the basket. It makes it really easy to remove from the water and rinse. I will also recommend keeping a temp probe right in the meat you can see the wire going into the water. Good luck!!
This was a big topic of conversation because we do freeze/thaw/process/refreeze venison and pork, never an issue. As a former restaurateur and certified food handler here is what Dept of Agriculture has to say. I’ll defer to the experts:
Author: Alice Henneman, MS, RDN
The U. S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) advises:
Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.
If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly, according to USDA.
DO NOT thaw meat at room temperature, such as on the kitchen counter.
Safety will depend on whether the raw product was handled properly before it was frozen, refrozen shortly after it was thawed, cooked to a safe temperature when it is eaten and handled safely if there are any leftovers.
What temperature should I pull my cured and smoked bacon out of my smokehouse?
@jonathon it is printed on the Box. I’m looking for a bag that has a evoh barrier. Does Waltons carry a four or five mm evoh High barrier bag?
