    Where the heck are all the Michigan folks coming from today? Hmmm perhaps there's an obvious answer to that question.

    Welcome Dhops. I hope that the love of BBQ within the brotherhood of this great community will allow us to leave our differences aside. GO BUCKS! ;-)

      We always leave our differences at the door. But if you go back to the door you'll see the Tigers are kicking butt!

      LOL....I will occasionally find them at Gordons but they are tiny.....9 to 11lbs...full packer.....$3.99 a lb tho. Guess that will have to work!

      Not bad at all, I'd be happy with that. I'll have to check Gordon's, I didn't think of that. What grade do they sell, you know?

      USDA Choice is the grade. I just like a larger point is all.....I smoke the Brisket - give away the flat and keep the point for Burnt Ends.

    Huskee don't feel too bad. WalMart want's $6 a lb for brisket flat here. If I order a whole packer from my grocery store, though, they only charge $4 a lb. They don't carry them so I have to talk to Justin (my butcher) and ask him to special order it.

      Yea I went to Sam's Club....ya know the chain warehouse store that sponsors a huge KCBS BBQ competition Nationwide...and asked if I could order a full packer...he looked at me like I was speaking a foriegn language. They have flats and charge close to $7lb.

      I think in my case I'm just lucky because my grocer doesn't normally carry whole packers. For whatever reason their order sheet lists them at $4 a lb. I feel like I'm breaking the law a little bit when I buy them as they're Angus quality, and pretty good Angus to boot.

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.

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.
