    Thx. One thing I liked about many of the TX places we visited was no sugar in the rubs. I love sugar, but am always trying to keep it out of things when I can, so it was great to find a cook that didn't involve sugar (the sauces do still have it though).

    Great looking cook! Nothing wrong with S & P brisket.

    Brisket "Franklin Style"

    Inspired by our recent road trip to the hallowed halls of BBQ joints around Austin, I threw some friends a dinner featuring a brisket "Franklin-style." Cooked at 275F (which I've never done before), with only salt & pepper rub (which I've never done before), and with his advice to wrap in butcher paper post-stall (which I've never done before). Started with 14lbs SRF medium-grade brisket (was a little less than 7 lbs after trimming & cooking).

    Meat on the Memphis (top rack, water pan on bottom, thanks to this forum for that advice) at 0645, pit to 275F by 0700
    Wrapped at 1300 (probes at 178F & 169F -- flat & point going their own way)
    Off to rest at 1430 (probes at 207F & 187F -- my compromise solution)
    Served at 1815 (probes at 146F & 136F, sliced per Franklin's Video)

    Suffice it to say that of course it wasn't the same as Franklin's, but if you had never been there you might not have known. It worked really, really well given my limited experience with brisket (and this new cooker). I also made beans & slaw from his recipes (which were well received). Served with his sauces (there's a limit to how much I wanted to recreate myself in one day:-), plus pickles, onions, and bread, of course.

    All in all, I was really pleased. The obvious issue is how to get the point & flat to sync up. Separating them like many do is one answer, but I'd prefer not to. Figuring out heat in the smoker like Franklin does is another option, so now time to place probes all over and see if I can figure out a way to equalize.

    Pics attached (not great, but I was too focused on the cook to get out my big camera:-) Thanks, as always, to all the folks on this forum whom I've cribbed off of again and again!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


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.
