    Brisket should be savored by slicing it and eating with your fingers, or at worst, with a fork.
    Okay, I'll meet you half way and eat my ground brisket burgers with my hands, no forks allowed!


      Yesterday's Angus burgers were both a hit and a miss. I take full responsibility for the cooking technique involved. Used a cull chimney of Weber Professional briquets, mainly so I can use up the bag and go back to Weber Originals.

      These Angus patties from Fry's were a bit thicker than last week's brisket patties, although both were 1/2 pounders. Neither came in plastic wrapped meat tray, but were wrapped in butcher paper, so the difference may be due to being squished a bit when wrapped, I dunno.

      The brisket patties were pre-mixed with seasoning, the Angus were not pre-seasoned. The brisket patties were far more flavorful and drier, but cooked well done. I cooked the Angus to medium to make them more juicy and tender, which they were. BUT, GW took her patty out and nuked it for 30 seconds 'cause ut wasn't done enough for her. Even my Angus patty did not compare to the well done brisket patty.

      I need to adjust cooking time for brisket patties, but not by much. We love the seasoning the butcher used with the brisket patties (seen below), and we will likely go with them over the Angus patties, YMMV

      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 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.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      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’.
