    Yeah it's like Russian Roulette with store bought ones that's why I started doing it myself plus I can pick the exact type of Brisket I like with the fat i'm looking for. I found a nice little cheapo meat slicer so I can get those paper thin slices for sandwiches.

There's one butcher I havent asked yet. Even Meijer wants $8/lb which I don't want to pay. I've been doing more pulled beef and roasts and skipping the brisket. [wipes tear]

    I'm originally from Michigan! Born and raised in Flint, Michigan and attended college down in Rochester, Michigan at Oakland University. Brisket prices have been crazy this year and it really hurts me to the core because this year i'm been doing my own corned beef and pastrami from start to finish.

    You've solidified my desires for a Primo even further! I hear you on the sleepless overnight cooks. I haven't done one in a long time, (brisket is very hard to come by where I live, and ribs and such are day jobs) but I remember it well. Of course, I run an offset stickburner w/ no electronics which is the WORST if you want to try to sleep. You get about as much rest as the cowboys in the old west trying to sleep under the stars while fending off hungry wolves.

    Nice meeting you Cam.

    Hey Aaron,

    I got the Primo XL about two years back and it's a great piece of work. I just got the Good One this past July so right now i've been usually the Primo XL as mainly a grill with Grillgrates but if i'm doing a overnight smoke I will use the Primo because it just that easy. I've gone 22 hours on my Primo without having to reload and with the BBQ Guru Wifi it makes overnight smokes a breeze; even though I still don't get as much sleep those nights but I think i'm too excited for the final product LMAO!

    As for my Weber Kettle she got smashed by a huge tree branch during bad thunderstorm and the WSM I sold to a friend who has been trying to get into smoking. I'm hoping to catch another Weber Kettle on sell over the next month or so.

    Hey there Cam, welcome to The Pit! Sounds like you have a great setup there, I'm actually jealous. I've been drooling over the Primo XL for a good while now... Question- did you get rid of your Webers, or just dont use them since you have the big dogs now?

    When you get a minute, check out Pit Boss' Welcome & Announcements channel, as well as the tips posts in that channel. These will help you learn your way around The Pit, as well as set up your signature. There's also a post that explains the best way to post nice big pics here... we like to see bragging pictures of your equipment and your cooks. We look forward to hearing more from you! Enjoy!

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs


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, placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side. Click here to read ourácomplete review.


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. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.


GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredáZone


GrillGrates amplify heat, prevent flare-ups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. Click here for more about what makes these grates so special.


Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

3 burner gas grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood including dual-tube burners that are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. Click here to read our complete review.
