    That's my fear. I *know* how to do it in the oven and am concerned about messing up a holiday meal. (Plus it's predicted to be raining here on Saturday. Not interested in going outside and getting wet on Christmas.

    Use the smoker to save space for sides in the oven...

    We're sticking with the oven, I'm not yet ready for prime (rib) time to do the holiday meal (started my "pit" career only last July), and my lovely bride, Queen of the Kitchen that she is, crushes this meal. I'll practice a couple of times between now and next year, and maybe give it a go then in the smoker

ID:	1144832 A smoked Prime Rib is something special. Here’s one I did last year. So good. Just sayin’.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm leaning towards burnt ends. I'm doing a prime rib for Christmas, debating if I should smoke it or do it in the oven. At this point, I'm planning on the oven unless I"m convinced otherwise.

    Ratherfly Looks great! Glad it turned out so well and your guests all enjoyed it. Hopefully, you kept notes on how you cooked it and times, temps, etc. so you can repeat.

    Congrats! I have yet to try my first brisket, so I have enjoyed this thread very much. Very sorry to hear about your husband's aunt's diagnosis, and you did a WONDERFUL thing to make that meal in her honor! Good for you.

    Gotta second pork belly burnt ends. They are amazing!

    I am hoping to make some pork belly tacos soon so we will see.

    Glad you made this get-together special for her!

    Two things to do with pork belly, or at least the two things I do:

    1. Bacon!
    2. Pork belly burnt ends - always a hit.

    replied
    The reason for this holiday get-together was to get the family together as a wish for my husband's aunt who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. May have added a tad to my stress level. Know what? She was absolutely thrilled. Mission accomplished. I will try the leftovers today, not that there were that many.

    I think my next new recipe to me will be pork belly. Off to research!

    Welcome to the club. You're now an Experienced Brisket Cook. Congratulations.

    That looks good from here. Like everyone else said, we are our own worst critics.

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.

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.
