Have you ever wished for a product that infuses smoke to your meat with no fuss or muss. Mojobricks is a clean and easy way to impart beautiful smoke flavor to your bbq cook. A bbq competitor was hawking Mojobricks at a previous event. The price was right and I was curious. These are small cubes of compressed wood that you place over a heat source. They smolder and do their magic. Different flavors are available such as; red oak, cherry, maple and hickory. We purchased the hickory cubes. We will experiment with some beef ribs today.
We are smoking our ribs in a covered Weber kettle. We built a charcoal fire consisting of 30 lit coals. The glowing coals were placed on one side of the grill. We closed the bottom & top vents to a pencil width. The Mojobrick was placed on top of the lit coals and the grill was positioned. The rack of ribs was placed on the grill away from the coals. The cover was put into place.
The Mojobrick began to smolder almost immediately. We smelled the beautiful intoxicating perfume of hickory. The Mojobrick lasted for over an hour. The image above is the rack after two hours. You can see all the beautiful smoke color. We wrapped our ribs to finish the cook. These were some delicious smoky ribs. They were not overpowered with smoke but the ribs did have wonderful hickory flavor.
Mojobricks is a clean, easy way to impart smoke flavor to your bbq. What fun we have experimenting
