    • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

    Alternate beef cut article

    I happened across this article this morning and thought I'd share. Perhaps it'll be of interest or save some $$

    Good article, but unfortunately doesn't apply much here. Tri-tip is the most expensive cut I can buy, tenderloin is $2 a pound cheaper, in line with skirt steak somehow, and $4 more that porterhouse. Prime ribeye costs a little less that choice tri-tip.

        Love flatirons! I like to call them a poor man's fillet, but this summer we saw the price creep up to $7.99/lbs and that is if you can ever find on sale. They have become so popular I can only remember the store having a sale on them once this summer. We have been fortunate to have whole ribeye loins on sale for $6.99/lb cut and wrapped, so we have opted for those along with the 8-10 oz. fillets for $6.19 each. I am hoping they will have a sale on the flatirons this winter since their popularity should wane in the colder months.

        * - Favorite Beer - the cold one in my hand (craft beers of all flavors; haven't had a blue yummy in over 6 years) my tastes change with the season so it is difficult to name just a couple. However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
        * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
        * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
        * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE

      Sorry, but I quit reading at "grass fed, organic"...with that being said, my favorite butcher shop has been running a "special" since February on 8-10 oz bacon wrapped fillets for $6.19 each. I am not fond of wrapping bacon around a premium cut of beef, so we remove the bacon and use it to flavor green beans or wrap it around asparagus spears. We have had so many of those little suckers this year my wife has been requesting a brisket for this Sunday.
