Smoking Cashews and Beef Bone Marrow
Weekly Blog Post - Smoking Cashews and Beef Bone Marrow
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
Will it BBQ? Bone Marrow - We took some beef bones and put them in our Grill/Smoker combo for 15 or os minutes at high heat. We then removed the marrow from the bone, chilled that added our favorite seasonings and whipped it up into a buttery spread. We then put them on some bread, it was better than any butter I’ve ever had!
Will it BBQ? Cashew Nuts - We cold smoked some cashews with a few different seasoning shakers. Since Cashews are nice and creamy we decided to cold smoke them to not lose any of that creaminess. The video should be coming out shortly!
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
Bone Marrow Burgers. This started from the the meatgistics user @Denny when he asked what a good ratio of bone marrow would be to use when making burgers. We made a few different burgers with a some different ratios and picked our favorite.
What’s on our Mind?
I love cooking chicken in my crock pot at home but it can sometimes dry it out. This weekend I used the General Tso Marinade and cooked my chicken up to 180° to make it easier to shred but that also dried it out. Well I saved the juice that was left over in the pot, added a little bit of cornstarch to it in a pan and cooked it down and now I have a delicious easy General Tso Sauce to add to the shredded chicken. Delicious and easy!

@tarp it tastes pretty good, for a newbie to sausage making & blending my own spice blends.
Just thinking about the social media thing. I do follow your Facebook page. ( I think my family took a collective gasp when I finally signed into that). I’m still trying to figure out how the pound symbol(#) ended up being a hashtag!?
@ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.
