    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.

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!

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.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredáZone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.
