    Porter Road 20% off selected items

    Just got an email notice that Porter Road is having a 20% off selected item sale. This weekend only. It includes brisket.


    Got this e-mail, too. Was thinking of ordering a few things. Anyone know what a "whole brisket" is? They also have a packer brisket, so this is something different. Is it just the flat? A pre-trimmed packer?

    Also, has anyone cooked their briskets? Any good? Thanks.

      Near as I can tell, the difference between "whole" and "packer" is the amount of trimming done to each. It looks like the "whole" has had a lot more of the fat trimmed off than the "packer". As for quality, I know they have a good reputation here in The Pit, but I have never ordered from them.

      Their short ribs appear to be cut across the bone, like the flanken cut rubs I get at Sam's, versus being a plate of short ribs. That's made me hesitant to buy them.

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
