    WSM beef wibs

    Also hot off the WSM today are prime chuck wibs from Creekstone. These got a 8 hour dry brine, topped off with pepper and garlic, and hit the 250° smoke for six hours. Checked them at 190° internal just to gauge how they were coming, and they probed tender across the rack. Stealing a page from Mad Scientist BBQ, I basted them with some waugu tallow, wrapped them in foil, and gave them a three hour rest in a 170° oven. There was a pocket of fat on top that I somehow missed when trimming them prior to the cook, so that cost me some bark in the end. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty new to the beef wib thing, but I'm going to have to really look for any way to improve on this. Other than a little more diligence with trimming, these were as about spot on as I can imagine. I still have another four bone rack in the freezer, and I'm already chomping at the bit to get them going. Wasn't real good about getting pictures, but I did get a couple just to prove it actually happened.


    Pictures do no appear. Just little boxes. No response when clicked upon.
    Sounds like You Done Good.

      Yep. No pics Will.

    Agreed, sounds like a great cook, but we can't see the pics to drool over!


      Try reposting your pics. Also, what went right or what went wrong in your mind?

        The cook was pretty smooth, and I don't think i would change anything as far as time and temp go. Maybe a touch less salt for the dry brine just because, to me it was a little too pronounced. The other three people that tried them disagreed. The only real mistake was missing the deep pocket of fat when trimming them.

      Sounds great. Did you cook the 4 bones as one hunk, or did you cut into two two bone hunks? I like to cut 'em to get more bark.

        I did them as one hunk. My concern would be that they might get dry if I split them up.

      Well, the pics show fine for me, but let's see if the rest of you can see them this time.

    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.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    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.
