    Pitmaster Club Black "Bark" Friday Brisket Cook - Who's In?

    Inspired by Spinaker and RickyBobby I thought I'd participate in what looks like a great Pitmaster Club event, maybe even tradition(?):

    Smoke a brisket on Black Friday.

    Let's do this. Who's in?


    (yeah, yeah, turkey leftovers, how about turkey & brisket leftovers for days??)

    The Apple Cup, which is the annual football showdown between Washington and Washington State, is on Black Friday. We always go to our neighbor's house (he is a WSU grad). His wife orchestrates the food. I think I'm not going to be allowed to bring a brisket since I'm on the hook for chicken wings and smoked queso.

      Create a tradition!!!! I just told my wife I'm cooking a brisket for Christmas. She was like "But you always do a rib roast" ..... I said traditions change and a brisket is cheaper than a rib roast.

    I'll be out the state of my residence, yet still keeping in touch.

      One of the first cooks I plan on my new SnSK (arrives Thursday) is the Akaushi brisket that Troutman brought to me at Rockdale. Alas, I'll be out of town on black Friday at a friend's ranch and we will be cooking other stuff (Berkshire pork chops and other things).

        We have committed to babysitting the grandbabies on Black Friday, so I'll just be following along virtually when I get a chance to peek at the festivities. I want lots of in progress pictures! Data. Temps and times. It will be like being there with you.

          Our traditional dinner which is a multiple day event. As I've mentioned before Thanksgiving is my wife's cook, I do nothing. Not sure if my son and family will make the trip from Vermont. Daughter and her crew will be here. There are 2 pieces to the weekend. The Turkey is the 1st part and that is for Thanksgiving Day. The bird (bought yesterday 24#) along with typical sides. Stuffing, candied yams, cranberry sauce a variety of vegetables, which I ignore. That includes the stuffed artichokes. Dessert will have apple and pumpkin pie and other goodies. My daughter does all of that.

          Now for Friday we go to ravioli with my wife's Thanksgiving sauce. Meat will be sausage and braciole and meatballs. Ravioli is store bought but everything else is done from scratch. Leftover Turkey is in the mix. And all of it is a Saturday delight.

            Well if you stroll a little too far up and around the corner and back down there'll be a seat at my family's table for you. Be here 'bout 6ish, 4ish if you want pre-conversation.

          I'll be back up in Chicagoland for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, so no brisket for me. I'll just try to check in here and cheer y'all on.

            Very tempting. I’m going to be teaching my brother in law how I make beer in my backyard that day. Maybe I’ll show him how to make a brisket as well. Why this could be one of the most important and memorable days of his life.

          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.

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          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.
