I figure with the 4th of July coming, I would bet on a smoker for my cookout. (had to twist this around so it fits with a gambling forum! Wink  )

So, are you going to grill or smoke for your cookout?

I'm smoking the meat and grilling some corn and veggies- covering all my bets (see how this is a form of gambling? All those hungry folks waiting to see how your bet works out)

A brisket, pork butt, sausages, chicken, and ribs on the smoker- nothing better than meat that has been smoked all night on a slow heat. And remember, if the meat has a list of ingredients (except for sausages), you do not want to smoke it- always start with fresh meat and use a good rub on the brisket and butt. For ribs, I like to use some Texas pepper jelly- Pineapple Habanero is a favorite for a glaze on the ribs.

What you got cooking?

And if you were to win big- would you continue to cook or hire a chef for your barbeques? I would continue to cook on my little smoker and grill, they work good and I'm used to them. Plus it is a great pleasure to cook for others.

    I was in Lowe's the other day and they had the commercial grills in the store and I thought of what I could cook on one for a few seconds.  I think that even if I had the money I would still like to prepare meat on the grill.  When rib eye steaks are on sale at Albertson's I like to buy some.  I take it home and rinse off the steak and then sprinkle salt and black pepper on it and grill to well done.  My sister and mother are big on applying sauces on all the meats they cook but not me.  I personally think you ruin a good steak when you coat it in sauce.-weshar75

      I was thinking, Bar-b-que  chicken,  and mabey some simple stuff, like Hamburgers, and sausages, Grill wise.

      I guess I could fire up the smoker to keep things warm, I also like to mix my soaky chips (mesquite and hickory)

            Canned tomatoes, peppers and mixtures of the two in varying degrees of spiciness.

                Thanx cheesegrits and lotterybraker.

                I couldn't wait for an answer, so I went online to find out...lol

                Rotel is a brand of tomatoes, which are spicy and are packed with green chiles and jalapenos. They come in mild, original, and extra hot. They also have a Mexican and Italian flavored. You can usually find them with the canned tomatoes, and sometimes with the Mexican food in a grocery store.

                    If i'm not working on that day I'll do a teriyaki theme.

                    One pound of ground round, and one pound of ground sirloin.

                    Black pepper, little salt, and a good brand of teriyaki glaze, that's thick and not watered down. Mix well, but do not mix too much, since the burgers will get too tough. Just enough that the ingredients are all throughout the meat. Yum YUM!!!

                    Buy two one pound bags of chicken tenderloin pieces. Place the tenderloin between two layers of saran wrap. Gently beat the tenderloins with a mallet. If you don't have a mallet, use any heavy object with a smooth surface, like a wine bottle. After flattening the loins without tearing them apart, place them in a casserole dish and with an extra bottle of the same kind of teriyaki glaze used for the burgers,and pour it in the casserole. Blend well so all the meat is covered. Marinate in the fridge for atleast 2 to 3 hours, and grill.

                    Make sure to never use the marinade as a glaze in the grilling session. Potential risk of bacterial infection from uncooked glaze sitting in raw chicken is possible.

                    And for the sides, well maybe I'll try that fantabulous beans concoction mentioned by lotterybraker...lol

                            You all are making me hungry!!!  Back to the question...since I don't own a smoker I would be using my propane grill, but if I win the lottery I will buy state of the art of both.

                              In my opinion, a gas grill works best because of the actual fire crisping the meat.

                              A side dish of corn, and corn bread. Beans and Texas toast. I had that for breakfast one day with eggs and crispy bacon....hashbrowns....and a nice hot cup of coffee with 4 creams and 3 sugars......hmmmmmm A side plate of hot cakes and sausage in authentic Vermont maple syrup...hmmmmm and of course real churned butter, with some hot tea to wash it all down.......hmmm.

                              Texas toast is much larger than standard toast.....hmmm....
