    First brisket!

    I threw in my first brisket on the Kettle, so far it's been about 4 hours at 275f and the IT of the thickest part is 168f. I haven't seen it slow down so I don't know if I'm the stall yet. But it's looking good!

            Awesome looking so far. But it looks like you're gonna need a DnG so you don't waste all that aluminum foil.

              That would be a "Drip and Griddle". It kinda goes with the SnS. "Slow n Sear" from ABC barbecue co.

            It's looking (and smelling!) real nice! 5 hours 40 minutes in but I feel it's cooking too fast. I didnt notice any stall and it's already at 192f internal.

              At a pit temp of 275 you may not see a stall. If it is done early, wrap it and hold it in a faux cambro or your oven set to 175.

              Looks awesome!

                  How did this come out? For a first run you did a bang up job! At 275 F, it is very possible that you over ran your stall, no problem with that. It's about temp and feel, not time.

                    Very good! It surprisingly hit a stall around 198f which I found crazy, and it started going down. But I took it out anyways and held it. Pretty good either way!

                    On the grate about 3 inches away with a Thermoworks Smoke. Internal in the thickest part of the point.

                  • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                    After 9 hours, I put the brisket to rest for about an hour and a half. Everyone loved it, and the black meteorite look had people intrigued. The flat was a little dry (I didn't wrap), but the point!! So juicy and tender. Lessons for next time are: using less wood (the coffee plant wood I have is very strong) and adding much more salt and pepper. But it was pretty great and a very fun cook! Didn't mind waking up at 2:30am at all.

                    I did some burnt ends by rendering some fat on a skillet and cooking the brisket with BBQ sauce. They were so good! Can't wait to cook another brisket!

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  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 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. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  kareubequ bbq 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.
