    Will it BBQ? Soda Pop!

    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 Soda Pop and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Prep Time

    5 Minutes

    Cook Time

    20 Minutes

    Ingredients

    Hickory Smoke Powder
    Soda of your choice

    Utensils Needed

    2lb Foil Loaf Pan 4-Pack
    The Flip Professional Smoke Box

    Instructions

    We are trying two methods, a traditional cold smoke and adding hickory smoke powder directly to the soda. Pour the desired amount of soda into a foil pan and put in a smoker on the top shelf. Put your Flip Professional Smoke Box towards the bottom of your smoker and light it. Close the top vent and open the bottom ones and smoke for 5-10 minutes. For the second method use just a pinch of hickory smoke powder and mix into the soda before drinking.

    So, Will it BBQ?

    Some were better than others and we each had different favorites on the cold smoking but we both ended up thinking the one that we thought was going to be the worst was the best! I liked Mountain Dew best and Austin liked the Coke best. For adding hickory smoke powder both the Dr Pepper and the Cream Soda were good, not just not bad they were good! Especially the cream soda, the smoke powder added just a nice hint of smoke that really worked with the cream soda! So no, it will not BBQ if you try to apply actual smoke but if you use Hickory Smoke Powder it can turn out pretty good!

    Just an FYI, everybody that received snack sticks for Christmas last year loved them… I just ordered another batch of Willie’s Snack Stick spice blend to do it again this year!

    Jonathon, I have to agree that 275 is too hot… If you have the time I’d shoot for 225, but if it needs to be “done”, then 250 would be the max I would do…

    I have always filled the water pan for everything I smoke… 2 reasons, first it does tend to add moisture during the long cook thus keeping the bark from turning to shoe leather… and second because the water pan acts as a heat sink and helps maintain the temperature (in my vertical propane smoker) a bit more accurately… I’ve heard folks tout using apple juice in the water pan to impart a sweeter flavor, but I’ve never tried it…

    On the other hand, my dad smoked for years, mostly in a converted fridge with an electric hotplate in the bottom… he never used a water pan and never had an issue with dry meat…

    As for the type of wood to use, that’s just a trial and error, personal preference thing… I happen to like steaks cooked with oak… that may be too strong a flavor for your taste (my GF hates it)… Recently I have been using a lot of maple for NC bbq, chicken and even cheese… I like the maple for the meats, but next batch of cheese will go back to the hickory / cherry mix that I was using…

    I followed the instructions on the video. It may have something to do with the sausage not getting as firm as it should. I used the cotto salami on duck breast with pork fat. It sure tastes good. But it’s a little soft.

    I’ve done a lot both ways. I would highly recommend a stuffer and I have the Weston grinder with the auger stuffing attachment. It’s slow, but if you’re doing 5# or 10# batches, it’s not that bad. I’ve had small 5# stuffer, old school cast iron Enterprise, 11# vertical and now a 35# hydraulic. Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t trade the hydraulic but the 11# vertical I got on amazon had a lot of versatility. I think your bigger decision should be what type of stuffer should I buy. I would recommend the taller, smaller diameter instead of the large shorter one. The smaller diameter allow for a higher pressure for doing sticks with cure in them. The large short ones would be great for doing pork sausage or larger diameter casings, not 19-22mm sticks with cure. It would be fine as long as you’re doing fresh like breakfast or something like that. If you go the stuffer route I’d get it from Waltons and get the Weston-they stock parts, other no name from amazon is a one shot deal, once ours broke couldn’t find parts. Plus they have so many tube sizes now and Walton’s does a great job helping with casing and stuffing horn sizes, they carry them all.

    I purchased a stuffer off Amazon for under $100 and would never go back to using the grinder. With the grinder, it was always a two man job and took forever. The stuffer is much faster and have no problems doing it all by myself. Plus with a hand crank stuffer, no electricity usage and wear and tear on your grinder.
