1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons rice vinegar

Cook shrimp 3 minutes each side over direct flame.

Smoked Garlic Parmesan Wings


 

Will Turner / @will_turner13 / YS640

 
Ingredients:

2 lbs. of wings
5 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
3 teaspoons of garlic powder
1/4 cup of hot sauce
Fresh Parsley
Bleu Cheese or Ranch
Meat Church Holy Voodoo Rub

Directions:

First I preheat my Yoder Smokers YS640 to 325 degrees. While the smoker is warming up, I lightly season the wings with the Holy Voodoo rub by Meat Church. The wings are placed on the top rack of the smoker and are cooked to an internal temp between 175-180. This will take about 40 – 45 minutes. Once the wings are off, toss the wings in melted butter, hot sauce, garlic powder, and freshly grated Parmesan. Garnish with parsley and serve with bleu cheese or ranch.

Smoked Blueberry Pie

By Kevin Lavin / YS640s owner

 

 

Yoder Smokers pits aren’t just for brisket and chicken. Try your hand at smoking a fruit pie using Kevin Lavin’s recipe. It’s a simple recipe with a delicious outcome. 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup white sugar

3 tbs cornstarch

1/4 tsp Salt

4 cups fresh blueberries

2 premade pie crusts

Directions:

Mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt together and pour over the blueberries in a large bowl. Toss until coated.

Unroll the dough and roll it out a bit before placing into a 9” pie pan. Dump the blueberries in and pop the other pie crust on top (or cut into strips and weave like I did) and use a fork to crimp the edges.

Brush egg yolk on the crust to get that killer color.

Drop into your Yoder Smokers pit and smoke at 180° for 30 min to soak in that smoke, then crank the heat to 425° until the crust is golden brown and the fruit mixture is bubbling. 

Let it rest and chill for at least a couple hours before slicing. Enjoy!

Cajun Brine Solution for Turkey

Brining infuses meat with flavor while tenderizing it so when cooked, it’s juicy, tender and delicious. Check out Will Turner’s recipe for a Cajun brine solution and his technique for brining a 20-pound turkey overnight.
