      That looks yummy!

    That looks as fine as it could DWCowles ! Nicely done. And I just know with a no-wrap, all wood cook this butt was as good as humanly possible. I made up my mind I am going to try the no-wrap technique next time. The more I think about it, it has its scientifically-sensible perks which could outweigh the drawbacks. I just hate waking up early....[yawn]

    What was your total cook time, from firing up smoker, to putting butts on, to pulling/eating?

      Thanks DWCowles. I usually don't cook 'em over 4lbs a piece so this gives me a starting point to consider. I appreciate it.

    DWCowles , WOW, fantastic! And great pic..looks like I can take a bite from here!


      Char Siu "ribs" tonight on the Yoder with ash logs. Marauderer turned me on to a very tasty packet of char siu mix, and it is wonderful on smoked pork. So tonight is country ribs strips (not really ribs of course, but pork butt sliced into 1" strips basically) marinated in the char siu.

      I am preburning some logs for tomorrow's rib & chicken cook, and I thought I might as well take advantage of the smoker running. It is beautiful weather, 50s and solid sunshine, no wind. Feels like 70, lol.

      One strip was made with my Honey Shawsh (on right), the rest with Barry's recommended Char Siu packet. It's very sweet, very good.

        Thanks guys DWCowles Ernest. Ernest no, it's still wood. It's burned with oxygen, just only halfway (or so) so they are dry chunks of preburnt wood and quickly become hot coals with better smoke. The water is burned out of them. Charcoal is made by heat in an oxygen-free environment.

        So you preburn halfway then put them off? Using a grill to preburn? I bet one could use preburnt wood in a PBC. Huskee

      That sandwich looks fantastic. The only time I've ever wrapped was the brisket I did this past summer. I made it for an annual event we call "Grill Day". Good friends of ours live behind us and when their youngest daughter was filling out a questionaire on her first day of class in second grade, one of the questions was, what are your three favorite holidays? She wrote:

      Grill Day




          Full point half flat brisket. I now what y'all saying, starting brisket this late? Think about it, cook 12 - 15 then cambro. It only makes sense to start late in the day.


            Oh you didn't think I could do cow feet and tripe? LOL

              Oh my... That is right up my alley. Do you mind sharing the recipe? Specifically the seasonings.

            The thing is, Ernest, I can't figure out how you do anything else, your food looks so good.


              That looks amazing, Ernest.


                Thank you jmott7 JeffJ .

                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.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
