      Boston Butt to be smoked later this week on my 22" Kettle + SnS. $1.39 a pound at a local store here in Milton Florida. In Nashville I usually pay nearly $2 a pound. To top it off, I always remove most of the fat cap and this one has most of it already trimmed so even a better price since I'm not paying for the fat cap.

      I'll come back with photos over the weekend.

        Excellent price. I bought a slew of butts last week to smoke as my contribution to a work potluck. Wouldn't you know it, $3.49/lb. I swear they knew I was coming, I've NEVER seen them that high until I needed a bunch on short notice!

      You know, I didn't think to take pictures of the July 4 fixings. We are in central Mexico, just south of Guadalajara, and I got a 15# USDA Choice Certified Angus brisket, 4 Swift pork spareribs, and 15 Johnsonville Brats. Brisket was on the Weber Smokey Mtn for 8 1/2 hrs then wrapped in foil and into a 200 deg oven for 10 hrs. Ribs were on for 6 hrs and the brats for 1 1/2 hrs. All this time the smoker was 230-245 deg. Pecan chucks and Kingsford charcoal.

      The lady is working late, so I treated myself to a ribeye cap for one. Rubbed with BBBR, reverse sear with a touch of applewood smoke. Took it off at 130, rested 10 mins. Made some classic sides, baked potato and creamed spinach. Costco coming through with the great meat once again!

Slices are different thickness because wife wanted paper thin ones and I wanted steak sections.

          Left over shaved brisket tossed in wing sauce, a dab of ranch and BE-s on the side. BBQ sauce and pringles are vegetables .. right?

            This pic is a little deceitful since I cooked it a few days ago, but it was my last cook....so therefore it's my most current. And if I hadn't said this just now no one would know anyway, so here it is....

            Wet brined then homemade-sauced chicken legs. Cooked on the kettle + SnS with mulberry wood chunks. Cooked to 185. I also cooked some non-sauced ones with herbs, and the winner by a very long shot were these. The boys were upset when the last one was eaten.

                Have competed in two BBQ comps and plan on more this year

                Huge fan of The Ohio State University.

              Did the Steakburger recipe for dinner tonight. Our son was making a surprise visit from out of state so I decided to make his favorite food. I went to my local Publix and got a 3.38 lb. chuck roast. I asked the guy to grind it for me using the big plate. I also asked him to add 4-6 oz. of extra fat to increase the fat percentage to at least 25%.
              I had made the Brioche bun that Breadhead had developed over at Stella Culinary. I have made two batches of the buns; the second batch was much better than the first except for the egg wash. I accidentally added too much water and the wash was a bit thin. Lesson learned. Breadhead suggested leaving the water out next time and that is my plan. I have had the Sweet & Sour pickle chips so I sliced some fresh tomato, some iceberg lettuce and cooked a pan of bacon in the oven. Also had some french fries and corn on the cob.
              Everyone loved everything but I did have a slight issue with the burgers trying to fall apart on the grill. I didn't pack them tight per the recipe but next time I will pack them a bit tighter. Click image for larger version

            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.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            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!

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
            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.

            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.
