    First brisket cook in 2 years...

    14 lb Prime brisket. Haven’t cooked one in probably 2 years. Seasoned liberally with Q-Salt, followed by a good dusting of Texas BBQ Grand Champion rub. Was still semi-frozen in the middle. Oh well, it thawed fast enough... lol. Went w/ 210° all night and double wrapped in butcher paper in the morning when bark looked good (around 160-165° IT)... then jacked the temp to 250ish° til done. Gave it a 6 hour rest. Best personal brisket to date. Not sure why I rarely do them as the family LOVED it! That’s gonna have to change

        I think 2 years is a little to long for aging beef. Looks great!

                  Yeah, with a cook like that I have no idea why you waited two years. Based on those photos I agree you should not wait that long again. Great cook!

                              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear


                              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                              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 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


                              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?


                              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 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.

                              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
