    Gabriel’s Fire in Mountlake Terrace

    This place is just north of Seattle. It’s a little over an hour from my house, but I try to swing in whenever I’m driving by. I was driving by on my way home from work today so I had to get some takeout to support my favorite bbq place. The brisket is outstanding! Everything I’ve gotten there has been great, but around here good brisket is so hard to find, I can’t bring myself to order anything else. Their beans and potato salad are fantastic too.

    You're lucky. It's a barren wasteland around here. Just a Dickies or Dickys which ever. But you couldn't pay me to go there.


      Looks good. Kudos to you for supporting these places. Such a hard time for them right now


        Dang, I’m going to have to drive my butt up to Mountlake Terrace I see


          Wow, that looks incredible! I can almost taste it and its soft texture...[drool].. There's so many hidden gems in BBQ that don't seem to get much attention outside of their local circle.


            Now that is inspirational! Enjoy.


              I live a half mile from these guys. Redman is right, the brisket is really good and they always ask what sauce I want with it and I'm always like "guys... it doesn't NEED sauce!"

              Two guys from Texas that have turned a little shack into a really good Q place. I think they're doing takeout still... I hope they survive this pandemic thing.

              PS: this is one reason I don't smoke brisket. It's just me at home, so I don't have a crowd to feed and while it would be cheaper to do it myself, it's way easier to grab a pound of brisket here when I get the craving.

                Their sauces are really good, but of course I never get sauce for brisket. They only serve sauce on the side, or on sandwiches. They were still open yesterday, but are taking it day by day. If I lived a half mile from them, I’d probably never smoke brisket either! rickgregory

                Yeah, I like the Carolina sauce especially. I always ask for it with the brisket, then use it on other stuff.

              Wanted brisket last night, grabbed a pound of it from these guys and some 'slaw. They're doing take out and delivering to the car outside - not even letting people in now. Weird times. But awesome brisket:

                Looks fantastic. I have one on the smoker today, and this has got my mouth watering for it!

                This was really done as well as I can imagine brisket being done. Pull apart but with that slight resistance, smoky but not overly so. They give you a sauce of your choice on the side but that's still sitting in its container as this needed nothing at all to be delicious

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

            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.

            Our Favorite Backyard 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.

            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.
