    First brisket cook.

    Hey all, first brisket and it went swimmingly! Started it at 3am, had it on til 5pm and then rested in chilly (warm) bin for 2 hours. Didn't inject as the timing didn't work out. Definitely feel that it would of been better with the broth injections. Also need a leave in temp probe as it got up to 207 by accident! Still ended up delicious. Look forward to next time.

    Served it with corn bread done in a cast iron pot, turned out so much better than my last one. Hand cut slaw. Nice simple corn done with fresh tarragon from my garden and butter/salt. Also did the hoisin ribs in the oven for 4 hours at 225, finished off with the honey glaze over the coals. Those Hoisinful ribs are the best, wow.

    Friggen love this website!!!

        Thanks for that David

        This is actually my first time ever eating and seeing a BBQ brisket. We only have 1 place in New Zealand that does brisket like this and I haven't even eaten there yet! I am in love with BBQ brisket though! Holy wow.... So good. I can imagine I can do it way better as well if I inject it. Can really see the benefit in that.

        I loved the flat chopped up with some fat in it on the bread rolls and the texas mop sauce. Going to make a Shepards/Cottage Pie tonight with some of the drier flat bits. Will do a hash the next night. Such an economical way to buy and cook great cheap meat. Really want to try a corned beef and pastrami now.



          Nice. You're going to love the pastrami.


            Wow man, Home run!!!!!!!!!!

              Thanks man. Appreciate it coming from the Master. Thanks for your help along the way. I did your technique of barking then foiling. I like the idea of that better.

              Yeh, and that bark really bounces back once it steams off a little when you remove the foil.

              Wow more like a Grand Slam.

            Looks like a home run, need to try those ribs.


              Now that's what I call an amazing cook! I get hungry just looking at those photos. Congrats!

              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.

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 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 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.
