So how often do you think you’ll use that stove top smoker?

Here we go again,  another stovetop smoker story about how we can all make barbecue in the kitchen with one of these boxy contraptions.   Oooooh, it’s so much easier than outdoor barbecue!  Do you really want to store one of these things in the kitchen?  You can’t even fit the soccer balls in it like the smoker out in the garage that gets used once a year.   As usual, the liquid smoke alternative is completely omitted.  At least they didn’t completely bash the stuff this time.  And we thought iceberg lettuce had a pr problem. Are you enough of an independent thinker to try the Cheater method?  You will love it.  We guarantee it!

Not a hint of crock-pot in that smoky bbq!

Put a pork butt in a crock-pot.  Sprinkle on the dry rub and a small bottle (about 1/2 cup) of liquid smoke. Okay, use less if you get scared, but at least 1/4 cup.  Close the lid and go do something else.  Just be sure to get some buns and slaw ready.   Don’t forget a jar of dill pickle slices.   The pork butt will be ready in a few hours on high or overnight on low.  Fall apart tender.  That’s what you want.
