If you want to smoke ribs or other types of meat, it’s not actually something that is too difficult; not if you actually know what you’re doing. In fact, many of us have the cooking and seasoning of meat of smoked meat down to a science.
After a while, you just want to try out something new when it comes to barbecuing and smoking. For instance — have you ever smoked your meat with the lovely aroma of hemp? Trust us, a THC-powered lift is just what your BBQ needs right now. And seeing as plenty of barbecue masters use olive oil for seasoning before they smoke the meat, it’s pretty logical to move over to oil that’s infused with cannabis next.
And that’s precisely what we’re going to teach you here today! You’ve got two primary ways of smoking meat — using particular oils infused with THC is one of them. Or, on the other hand, you could use hemp pellets if you’re using a pellet smoker.
Made from Hemp? The seeds (hearts) are great on salads and renowned for their nutritional value. Yes. Plains Hemp BBQ Pellets are made from natural hemp fiber.
Hemp is an amazing crop, requiring few pesticides and no herbicides, having a very short crop rotation time, and being called a carbon-negative raw material. Thus, hemp is not only eco-friendly but also environmentally sustainable. Industrial hemp contains negligible amounts of THC – and is considered unsuitable for recreational use.
For starters, we’ll explore how you can use hemp pellets to improve the taste of your smoked meat in the preparation process. Much like the signature smell of marijuana, a hemp flavor can bring a lot of much-needed nuance to your barbecue. All you need to do is to find the right hemp pellets.
First of all, you need to make sure that the pellets that you’re using are both safe for use and completely clean. Тhe highest-quality pellets are actually created through a tedious multi-step process that involves painstaking dust extraction. That ensures that the pellets you use for smoking your meat contain no fillers, artificial binders, or chemical additives.
One of the great things about hemp pellets is that the truly great ones don’t have any phenols; particularly those you would usually find in pellets made from softwoods such as pines. If you’re going to infuse your meat with a hemp aroma during the smoking process, you need to select proper pellets.
On the other hand, if you want to use oil that’s been mixed with weed seeds, we’re going to guide you through that process as well. Without any ado, let us dive right into it.
If you’re starting with hemp smoked meat, we recommend using spare ribs. We’re talking about the St. Louis ones that don’t have a breast bone because it’s cut off. Start by giving them a nice trip, and make sure their edges are neat. You don’t want any loose strings of fat making a mess of things. These are also great if you’re going to use a pellet smoker and hemp pellets because they’re quite big and juicy.
Start by putting in the hemp pellets in the grill, and heating it up at this temperature. While it heats up, you can begin seasoning the meat with additional hemp-infused olive oil. Take the ribs and give both sides a decent but think coating. Once the cooking starts, this oil will seep into the pores of the meat, providing the entirety of the steak with a traditionally “good vibe”.
Apart from the hemp oil, you can mix in any kind of seasoning that you prefer. There are plenty of mixtures, and smokehouses all around the country have their own brands that you can order and have delivered to your doorstep. For instance, one Texas-produced seasoning mixture contains onion powder, powdered garlic, pepper, and salt — nothing fancy, but still quite exquisite. It’s also not a bad idea to put in some paprika if you don’t mind its particular taste; apart from the aroma, it will also provide your ribs with a somewhat reddish color.
3 – 2 -1
After the initial temperature settings, you can change them according to your personal preferences. Plenty of barbecue chefs like the 3-2-1 method. That’s the one where you smoke the meat for three hours, then put it in a foil for two hours with some sauce, and then another hour without the foil again.
We personally like to tweak that somewhat because our pellet smoker has the option to alter the temperature in great detail.
Changing The Smoke Settings
If you can, lower the temperature to around 225 degrees after a while; the previous higher temperatures will have dissolved some of the fat. Now, you can try going a bit slower for the next two hours. One of the reasons why we mentioned that you want to use both hemp pellets and cannabis oil is that pellet smokers don’t create as much smoke as their peers do; that’s why you want both.
Now comes the master touch — after the two hours of lower temperature have passed, pour some apple vinegar into a spray bottle. Then, open up the cooker and give the ribs a light spray; perhaps pour some additional seasoning as well. If you do this right, the meat will remain moist for the remainder of the cook.
Let this vinegar-seasoning mixture seep into the meat at the current temperature for another 15 minutes. After that, wrap your rips up in a foil — if you want a stronger taste, now’s the moment to put the remaining seasoning inside. Once you’ve completed the wrapping, the meat can be cooked for an additional two hours. We hope this guide was useful to you and that you have learned something new today. Make sure you are staying safe in these times we are all going through and have a good one, folks!
