      Weather has been in 70s during the day, low low 40s at night. They tell me this is really warm for this time of year and mentioned it's snowed this time of year before. I'm counting myself lucky!

      So it turns out the Hilton Garden Inn I'm staying at has a smokehouse restaurant. They serve ribs, brisket, smoked chicken, and pulled pork. How convenient! I ordered the "Smoked Meat" sandwich tonight. Made with brisket smoked for 18 hours according to the menu and served on marble rye bread with a dijon aioli. It was good. Tasted a lot like a corned beef sandwich and not a whole heck of a lot of smoke flavor. Meat was sliced razor thin and chopped so it was hard to tell how well they cooked it. All in all I was satisfied for my $14 Canadian.

        Sounds like a Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich. Those are pretty good.

        That's deli food. If you go to the Kosher delis in Montreal it's the main meat they serve. The stuff is awesome. Kind of surprised they now serve it all the way out in Saskatoon. I grew up in Canada and I never saw southern BBQ there.

          Just think of it as a learning experience: check out where you'll eat before you go there. I feel your pain.

              • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

                Good southern style smoked BBQ restaurants basically don't exist in Western Canada. If you can find a steakhouse that serves prime or AAA grade Alberta beef that would be your best bet (Alberta is the province directly to the west so you should be able to find it). In my not so humble opinion, my home province has some of the world's best overall beef in terms of what you can get at any grocery store. The key is the barley finish, corn is a swear word around these parts when it comes to finishing cattle.

              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

              slow n sear

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

              Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              PK 360 grill

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              kareubequ bbq smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
