      Cooked up some Rib Tips on Saturday and then Chicken on Sunday...

      The Rib Tips I did smoked on the Weber Kettle for a while then put in a pan with some Brown Sugar Butter and Honey covered for a bit and then glazed them and put them back on the smoker to set the glaze...

      The chicken was seasoned with a SPG mix and allowed to sit for a few hours then hung on the PBC...

          Beer: I love IPA's. Davidson Brother's (Glens Falls NY) is one of my favorites
          Wine: I like big reds - Cabs, Zins, etc.
          Straight Whiskey: I'm a bourbon guy. All time favorite Pappy Van Winkle 12 year. Standard go to Blantons
          Blended Whiskey: James Oliver American Whiskey

        Well I sure picked a crummy day to cook as it is a real tropical like soaker here in upstate NY today, but what the heck. I picked up a nice looking 3 lb prime chuck roast yesterday, dry brined it overnight, then injected it with beef consomme and rubbed it with Meat Church Holy Cow. I put it on my Vision Classic B Kamado about 11:00 AM EST.Right now I'm waiting for the torrential rain to let up so I can tweak my vents has the kamado is holding @ 217 degrees, which is a little lower than I would like. I'll upload some more pictures as the cook progresses.

          EdF I really have ro reason to complain, I have a nice grill gazebo to keep me & the grills relatively dry, it's just the the short span between the house & the grills I where I get a little wet.

          I think they're a perfectly cromulent side. Mrs. PKB thinks they are snack food. She likes arbitrary lines like that.

        BBQ for the contractor and crew working on remodeling our bathrooms (and fixing the darn leaks). Was pretty epic, they loved it, we sat around with whiskey and cigars after dinner.

          LOL!!!! Salt and pepper, 145 degrees in the hot tub time machine for about 6 hours, I think. This was over 2 inches thick.
          High heat Shallow fried to sear.

        Surf and turf. Lobster rolls and strip steak.

        Lobster rolls were classic. Just steamed lobster, a tiny bit of mayo and a squeeze of lemon juice on a butter toasted top sliced bun

        Steak was a last minute addition once I saw a fantastic o piece of meat at the butcher counter. well-marbled 1.5 inch thick strip, reverse seared to 120 and then finished over direct heat. A few flakes of sea salt topped it off.

          Smokey Joe® Charcoal Grill 14"
          Thermoworks Smoke Thermometer with gateway
          2 iGrillminis - from before they were Weber.

        Second cook on the Grilla, last night. Pulled out a small chuckie from the freezer, and I was glad it was just for my wife and myself, because there was a lot of bone and fat. The two of us wiped it out. Part of the reason we'll be going back to the processor who is currently doing a hog for us, and who has done our beef at least 4 times in the past. Anyway, dry brined for a few hours, put on a coating of BBBR, and put it on for six hours, at 225. I took it off it was at an internal temp of 175. A little lower than what I was aiming for, but we needed to eat, and I'm still getting used to the new cooker. It was tender, nice smoke taste. Pretty simple meal, because today I am on a clear liquid diet, in preparation for a medical procedure in the morning. Yay! Looking forward to tomorrow night, when I can eat again.

          For dinner last night we ate PBC. Pit Barrel Chicken. With the chicken we had potato rounds and steamed green beans.

            Nice. I wonder if Pit Barrel hung chicken produces the same effect as my vertical roast chicken. I have an idea on how to hang one in the Grilla, but I need hooks to accomplish it. Ideas!

            Thanks Guys! They were not too bad! I cooked them a little long on accident so they were a little dry. Other than that they were pretty solid.

          First brisket. Costco prime. It took about 12 hours (no crutch) and it’s now holding in the cooler. I ended up separating the point from the flat for this run. I’m sure I messed up the trimming, but I learned for next time. The point got done about 90 minutes sooner than the flat. I went until they were giggly and probe tender which was between 190 and 195 F.

            I held it in the cooler for about three hours and it was approaching 145 F. My oven has a warming feature (145 F) so I moved it indoors to hold it another two hours still wrapped in foil. We ate the flat and it was great! A tad dry so I’ll try the crutch next time. I vacu bag and froze the point for another time.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.
