                  Re: brisket. My advice is, don’t overthink it. It is a hunk of meat. Start fire, cook meat, eat meat. The only thing you need to get right is when to take it off. And you can always buy another one, that wasn’t the last brisket on earth.

                  Welcome!

                      i was thinking homemade bacon as 30acrewoods suggested, here is a link to meatheads homemade bacon on the free site, it is so good. Congrats on the new smoker, i would suggest making some big bad beef rub for the brisket, that recipe is also on the free side

                          Well, I did the brisket. Holy Cow (haha)! Amazing. 10.5-hrs. It came out moist, flavorful, nice dark bark, great smoke ring. I cheated a bit and wrapped it after about 6.5 hrs and it had hit 165. Then sailed home to about 200-205 depending on the spot. Pulled it off the grill, added another wrap, stuck it in a cooler and waited another 90-minutes. I made some of the Franklin espresso bbq sauce to go with it. It was sinful! I have to say the WSM was smooth sailing. Kept things from 225-250 the entire time on one load of charcoal, and probably could have gone another 3 hrs if needed. We are now hooked on brisket...

                          But bacon...hmmm. I'm going to try making maple bacon with local pork and my maple syrup. Then have some grilled bacon wrapped scallops on the wood grill.

                          Thanks for all of the kind words or encouragement - it made this an enjoyable first go!

                          Try this:

                          Maple Old Fashioned
                          2.5 oz of your favorite bourbon
                          2 TBS water
                          1-2 TBS DARK (or VERY DARK - if you can find it) maple syrup
                          4-6 drops bitters
                          stir until all is well blended
                          pour over ice
                          enjoy!

                            I have to add one constructive comment: Never, ever use fake maple syrup. Ever. True story: during travels and eating out when I was young, my mom would always have a 1/2-pint of syrup in her pocket book just in case they didn't serve the real stuff!

                                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 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 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.

                                The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                                Placeholder

                                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.

                                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                                Placeholder

                                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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                                Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
