    Knives

    I am not really sure where this should go. But can anyone recommend a good knife for trimming briskets and shoulders. Not wanting to break the bank but looking for a good, solid knife and stays sharp. Appreciate any and all comments.

    This is what I use. Hone it before each use and it stays very sharp.

    Admin's, please edit for AR Amazon code. I have no idea how to do that.

    I am not a brisket officianado, but for all my trimming I use a Rapala filet per Meathead's recommendation. It's cheap & sharp.

      Don't remember the brand on mine, but the earlier reco's are right on target: a somewhat flexible boning or fileting knife will serve you well!

        Meathead mentioned Rapala Soft Grip fillet knives in an article or something one time.

        i picked up a few different sizes on amazon and they work great for trimming... and they are inexpensive.

          For trimming.....I like to use either my Global Boning knife or my Rapala Fillet knife.

          For slicing....... there is no better knife than the Brisket Sword. I even like it better than my much more expensive Shun Slicer.

            Greg1, I got the slicer on @Spinaker's recommendation. Everyone in my house refers to it as "The Brisket Sword"...it's awesome.

          Spinaker you really had me. I saw Brisket Sword & I went argh, argh argh. Flipped right over to Amazon & was immediately disappointed, cuz its name really wasn't brisket sword. Somebody ought to hire you for marketing. Argh, argh, argh, the Binford 4000 Brisket Saw. Yeah, that's the ticket.

          Filet knives come in many sizes too! Stay very sharp when not cutting Bones and skin, and are very easy to sharpen.

            I really like the stiffness off the blade for trimming out the deckle too!

                the wood handle rapala fillet knife is my tool of choice.Get them at any big box store and at sporting goods stores. A buddy of mine swears by his "Bubba" fillet knife.

                  Whatever you get, I suggest a narrow blade like the filet knives discussed here. They will have less drag than a wide blade.

                    • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
                      1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
                      2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
                      3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
                      4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
                      5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
                      6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
                      7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
                      8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
                      9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
                      10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
                      11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
                      12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
                      12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

                      Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

                      I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
                      I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

                    Spinaker er, that Global boning knife is fantastic for brisket! It's flexible enough to do big portions of topside work over the flat quickly and evenly. Particularly if you manage your temps and pull that brisket out from the cold fridge and start right on the thin fat layer on top of the flat. I just bought a 2nd one!

                    My other super-flexible favorite is the Flexible Boning Knife from Wusthof. It costs a little more than the Global. The Global, once the brand new out of the box edge wears off, does need to be run over the steel in between each brisket, if you want that super sharp action. So, the Wusthof seems to be superior in that regard.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
