    I've been putting the trimmed pellicle into an instant pot for like 4 hours. Trim the fat off for beef love, and the beef is perfect for a beef stew. I can't believe it starts as something so gross.

    I found a real Cambro, after the Rodeo, 'twas a sponsor thing, and the dang thing was, they didn't want them back. But really, any old cooler can do!

    It's really good! I bought it from an online catering store here in Sweden (I have 3). But I'm 100% sure you can get one in the US too. A quick search and I found this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MD2IDJ1...mazingribs1-20

    But look around and compare prices.

    Great Video! Major props to your co-star Sally...

    So where do you get your faux cambro? I liked that one.

    Lol! It did take forever. That leathery surface was tough even with a super sharp knife.

    Thanks! Troutman, that gif is awesome.

    Some comments on your comments

    1. The stall was minimal.
    2. I may do that. I'm thinking cut the brisket in half, so the flat underneath the point is still left. I.e separate it in a left and right half.
    3. Agree
    4. Me too :-)
    5. I've done that. Let's see what the reply will be. The FB has been trouble-free for a long time. It's the FB+Drive+PV that causes me headaches.

    Collaboration indeed, and a fun one too! Let's come up with some other stuff! All in the name of science of course

    One more thing I need to try. Looks really good for both of you guys. Doesn't seem to be quite as gushy as they showed in the original videos, but still very juicy. Thanks for all the work you two put in.

    OUT FRIGGIN' STANDING VIDEO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Couple of observations;

    1) Surprised you hit a stall. Mine acted like it wanted to get cooked. My graph disappeared on my new Signals app but it was almost a 45* angle, shot up without any effort. Fasted cooked brisket ever.

    2) I started cutting off the thin flats a long time ago and making pastrami or burgers out of it. I just can't ever get a flat to do what I want it to do, especially knowing that you're going to lose volume during this process.

    3) I think we both agree that it's an outstanding result, the tenderness is off the charts, but not something you'd want to do regularly. Kind of a novelty really, but a great result none-the-less.

    4) I've been thinking of having revolving briskets, always have one dry aging and another one staggered wet aging. That way I always have a brisket in the que, either a normal one or a dry aged one every other month. That way the process doesn't seem that long of a wait !!

    5) I'd email Fireboard immediately using your AR email (hint, hint) and tell them your issue. It may just be your cable. Does the Fireboard seem to work otherwise? When I had my problem last fall they replaced my unit, no questions. Of course I was still under warranty. The power of AR will get things sorted.

    Well, as usual my Swedish brother in smoke, another outstanding job on your part. I enjoyed this collaboration, hope we can do it again some time !!

    Thanks Polarbear777, good to know. Sent an email to their support today. Extremely annoying. I hope they can fix it.

    The fireboard I have had issues with as well. Email them and they will help. Also power cycling it completely and killing the app and restarting usually works.

    The nice thing about a fan controller is that if you do have problems, running manually is an easy switch.

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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
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.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
