    Found a couple Double R ranch choice New York strips at the grocery store that are obviously much better than choice. Couldn’t resist 😁. Cooked sous vide at 131, seared on the kettle, served with roasted veggies.

    Bought a 20# Wagyu brisket. After trimming and cooking it ended up at 8#!?! It was very tasty but came out to very expensive servings.
    I did an overnight cook at average temp of 235. Took about fifteen hours. Had to finish the last hour in the oven as my charcoal ran out. I recently switched from another brand to FOGO and it seems to have a shorter burn time.
    We are all stuffed so I’ll vac seal and freeze the leftovers.
    Served with baked beans and slaw.

    Best ribs I ever made. Amazing Ribs indeed; thank you Troutman for your recent step-by-step. These are the first St. Louis style I've done. I'm a convert now, though I still like baby backs as well. I didn't dry brine with salt overnight, as the ribs (Hormel was all my local store had) were already containing salt. Instead, I wet them with the W sauce per your suggestion, then a light layer of Killer Hogs AP rub, followed by a home made pork rub (pictured in vacuum bag). I let this sit overnight and about till noon (16 hrs). I mixed up cherry, apple, and hickory pellets and placed in Rec Tec Trailblazer hopper. I also filled a 12" A-MAZE-N tube with Cookinpellets Perfect Mix (Hickory, Cherry, Hard Maple & Apple) and lit it all up. Started out at just 180 degrees for about an hour to really get some smoke embedded. Spritzed with apple juice and vinegar and bumped the heat up to 235. Cooked two and a half more hours at 235 spritzing on the hour. I didn't have any pink butcher paper, so used foil; spritzed well again as it went in foil. I didn't do the normal 2 hours in foil, just one hour. I used Trader Joe's "Carolina Gold" sauce on one rack - my wife likes that. I prefer a more savory sauce, so I found this on the web and mixed a batch... https://www.thespruceeats.com/savory...-recipe-333676. That went on the other rack. Cooked the sauce in at 225 degrees for about 45 minutes.
    And, you can see the result - perfect just pull off the bone cleanly with a nice tender chew. Thanks again Troutman and all of the other Pit members for your help and advice. Click image for larger version

    First cook since my neck surgery! Ribs and chicken for a 29th anniversary dinner with all our kids. I forgot to take any pics of the two grill 5 hour cook, and my son had already dug into the ribs before I remembered to take a picture at all. And I forgot to grill the bags of artichokes in the fridge. Cooking those tomorrow...

      Willard you jinxed me! I just got back from the doctor, and they scheduled another surgery for Tuesday March 5th. So I basically wasted an entire month, as the first surgery (the more conservative one) did not do the trick, and we are going to the more aggressive surgery.

    Just coated with Famous Dave's for a couple of hours. Ended up a bit overcooked and crispy on the last couple of little ribs, mostly because Junior wanted to be a weird, temperamental cooker today. Still really good.

    • Current line-up of cookers: Weber 22.5" Original Premium kettle w/ SnS and BBQ Guru adapter; Old Country Over and Under smoker; PBC; Weber Ranch Kettle w/ Guru adapter.

    First rib cook on the new Old Country Smokehouse. Pictures are lacking, since I spent most of the afternoon fighting the temperature changes due to steady high winds. I had these seasoned up and ready to go last weekend, but something came up and I had to freeze them before they went bad. Went straight from the freezer to the smoker with these today, and that turned out to be a good thing.

        Troutman I cut off a very little bit of the fat cap but the rest goes in the grinder. It make fatty burgers that crisp up beautifully when smashed on the cast iron. Plus, by me, Picanha is less than $5/lb.

              I had to go up to Lompoc this weekend to pick up some red oak for my wood burning Buckaroo grill. While there, I got a couple of tri-tips at Floriano's butcher shop. Cooked one up over the red oak for my wife and her sister when I got home. Easily the best tri-tip we have ever had. Can't recommend Floriano's enough, so if you're ever in Lompoc give them a try.

              Served it with roasted red pepper relish and mashed cauliflower with dill.

              One of these days I need to learn some better photo techniques from Attjack - his photo kung fu is really strong lately.

                Thanks, guys, the girlfriend was very impressed with the smashburger. I grilled them up on the flat side of my new GrillGrates and really got an excellent crust on them. The caprese poppers were tasty too. I had a big ball of mozzarella and a bunch of basil I needed to use otherwise probably would have went a different direction to better match the style of burger.

            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.

            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.

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.

            Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

            masterbuilt gas smoker

            Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
