    Apparently this is the bandwagon some of the big names in BBQ are jumping on.....

    Wow. He is charging Franklin-like prices without quite the same type of reputation. $28 a pound for brisket and $27 a pound for ribs.

    I get the appeal of paying for Franklin’s and Snows’ but it’s not even clear Raichlen is cooking it. He sounds like he put together the recipe and someone else is doing it , and as we all know, the cook matters in BBQ!

    I mean, kudos for taking advantage of the niche and I am sure it will do okay, but gotta say hard pass from me.

      Holy Crap $28/lb!! Might be putting the stuff in bags labeled USDA ORGANIC. I know it hits my pocket book for that organic coconut.

      Do these people actually cook or even get close to the product? I kind of doubt either of these 2 even touch or have anything to do with the actual product they send out under their names.
      I have met Raichlen a number of times. He seems to me to be ... well a bit above the common person.

      Huh, that is a bit sad. He always struck me as a nice guy via his writing anyway and might have been a fun dinner guest.

    Gotta pay for those fancy cookers he uses somehow! I’d be leery of attaching my name to something like that, without a very stringent QA process at least.

      So sample 9/10 briskets before they ship out? I support all of the briskets heading your way first.

    Well, a lot of people must be more excited about it than we are, brisket is sold out and you can join the waitlist. No, I’m not on it.

      The guy has a following and a lot of books, but I’ve never been that impressed. However if purchasing bbq, I think I’d rather get it from any of the forum members here.

        I will sell you my brisket for less than $28/lb :-)

      The last whole packer I cooked was 19 lbs and I paid $52 at Kroger. Choice. Damn good brisket. P.T. Barnum marketing here?

        I also saw that Raichlen is attaching his name to a curated menu on the boutique cruise ship line Windstar. You can enter their treasure hunt promotion to win a cruise and a Raichlen curated dinner.

          The Norovirus always kept me leery of going on a cruise...then something else came along.

          I have literally never been interested in going on a cruise. And then 2020 got worse, as Jerod Broussard said.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


      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.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
