    • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
      1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
      2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
      3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
      4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
      5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
      6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
      7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
      8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
      9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
      10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
      11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
      12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
      12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

      Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

      I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
      I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

    I parted and SVQ'd for this year. Haven't tasted it yet, but after doing it, I'm thinking there is nothing like that whole big bird roasting away and filling the house with that beautiful scent.

        We are smoking two 10lb turkeys. I’m going to remove the bone and wrap in a roll. One will have minimal seasoning the other I’m going to go with heavy pepper and a little BBBR .

          I’m splitting a 13 lb. turkey.

          Half will be smoked on the Weber with a SnS.

          The other half will be oven roasted.

            Smoking became a thing for us so that the oven is free for all the wife’s side dishes. Maybe we need a 3rd oven...

            With the Turkey being cut in half and lying down I can fit my Green Bean Casserole, Squash, Stuffing and Rolls on the other shelf. I Sous Vide my mash potatoes so I do not need oven space for them once they are cooked.

          Deboning and then using the Slow N Sear on the Weber or maybe the Lang ... Thats the only thing im debating. Which one? A grill or a smoker?

            Since I have two 19 pounders, even split or parted out, and using the hover grill, I just don’t think the kettle+SnS will handle it, so using my offset, as it has handled up to two 25 pounders with ease in the past. My son in law wants to make smoked Mac-n-cheese and we may fire the kettle up for that.

            I’m parting out the turkeys this morning and will dry brine until tomorrow morning. I may try my hand at gravy tonight as well with the trimmings.

              Well, all I can say is that breaking down two big birds before cooking is a LOT of work! Here’s halfway done, right now it’s all dry brining with some rub on it in addition to kosher salt, on 3 pans in one of the garage fridges. Also good thing I checked the cookers today versus morning, as the offset had a nice mild growth due to forgetting to clean and burn off after a cook back in the summer... it’s been washed and is burning off right now.

              I opted not to debone the breast, as I had some concern about drying them out during the cook. I did debone the thighs and tie into a tube, leaving it attached to the leg for the cook.

                Whole using @fzxdoc's lighting method and otherwise just as the PBC website suggests. In the test run a couple of weeks ago, it came out great.

                  Just spathcocked two 16 pound birds, salted and seasoned, injected with butter and into the fridge. Not eating till 5 tomorrow so I am putting them in at 2. Hopefully they aren't done WAY too early. Yoder at 225 for 30 minutes for smoke and 350 after that is the plan

                    Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                    maverick PT55 thermometer

                    A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

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

                    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 grill

                    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

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

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                    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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                    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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    NK-22-Ck Grill

                    Their 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.
