    Thanks for the tip. Everything turned out awesome.

    Good eye.

    Yes, I like to cut a bit off the flat so I know which way the grain is running for slicing. and of course that piece gets done pretty quick. It is now 4:30 and the brisket is only at 178. I am hoping for some nice heating up in the next hour and a half! Dinner may not start at the stroke of 6 since the ribs aren't done either. Might be time to go from 225 to 275.

    The other thing I wasn't happy with.... stuck my temp probe in the brisket and pierced the bottom foil...lots of very nice smelling juice wasted. sigh

    looks good! Is that a little chef sampler on the right side of the bottom rack? always a good idea on a big cook, IMO.

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]n62019[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]n62020[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]n62021[/ATTACH] Thanks Dave. It is now 12:30 and I put them all on at 3:45 AM. I put the brisket on the top rack and the temps in it vary from 152 to 138. The BIG pork butt is 155. I have crutched the brisket and leaving it on top. The ribs wnet on at 12:30 on the bottom rack.

    Frac set your Yoder to 200F and throw all the big meats on tonight around 11:30! They'll be done by 6 guaranteed.

    The bullion is mostly salt, so as long as the injecting liquid is salty enough, you'll be fine. Judging by your above pic, you already nailed it down. Excellent pic! Now, I'm hungry...

    Injecting brisket.... new test

    OK, wanting to try the Kosmos Q reserve blend brisket injectant so I looked for some beef bouillon to mix it with---no luck. But I noticed I had just about half the desired liquid volume left of Texas Mop sauce more or less exactly as from the website... I was making all new sauces for a big cook this weekend so I added a little water and the powder and injected away. I had dry cured it for 24 hours prior...well, we will see. I also mixed the same rub in with some apple juice and squirted it into a big boston butt. the ribs go on as usual with just MMD but I will sauce them with a mix of the KC BBQ sauce and some raspberry preserves and then blow torch them. Add 5 links of spicy sausage and a score of bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos, creamed corn, beans and a bunch of friends and it should be a good party. Unfortunately it starts 6PM Friday so I will be up EARLY to put the brisket and pork on.

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.
