    My maiden voyage on my new PBC. I am a long-time owner of the Weber kettle paired with SnS accessories and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I certainly had heard nothing but good things. I wasn’t disappointed! The PBC is so easy and puts out such a great product that I almost feel guilty 🤣 I used the Spinaker method for the charcoal. It worked to perfection. All in all, a great first cook!

      That’s quite a pictorial. I especially like you burn pot with the nice neat snake rings. Stay safe.

    Seeing jfmorris post on Corned Beef And Cabbage last week, it inspired me to get a smaller packer I saw at the grocery store. But I’m a day late for March 17 corned beef dinner, having a cold over the weekend put me a little behind on the process. But, tonight, was able to serve the kids (19 and 15) their first Corned Beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots. I didn’t know how they would take to the corned beef, I figured they would like it and they did.

    I followed the recipe from Meathead on corned beef but used the sous vide method I found on Serious Eats to cook this. After the brine period, I took the brisket and vac sealed and into the water bath at 180* for 10 hours and then an ice shock and fridge rest over night. Sliced up perfectly then I warmed it up gently with some liquid from the pot of cabbage, potatoes and carrots. Served it up with some spicy mustard.

    enjoyed this meal - now on to smoke the other half of the brisket for grilled pastrami sammiches this weekend!

        My thanks to Attjack for sharing the recipe. I brined this last year, froze and vacuum sealed and broke it out tonight because I got tired of waiting for my other brisket to finish brining (time miscalculation on my part). Only photo, forgot to take photo's last year of the whole process.

        And even more thanks to Meat Head for the brining tutorial and the calculator from Dr. Blonder!

          Cooked up some Porter Road spares and a small pork butt that we used about half of to make some sausage. No after finished photos - the ribs went in a day (my wife killed them), and most of the butt is gone after visits from my daughter to pick up the grand kids - she takes a little every day. Used Hank's rub on the butt, MMD on the ribs. Made some of the KC Classic BBQ sauce from the free side - it was a big hit. The Porter Road ribs were pretty excellent; I will be buying from them again.

              I was going to do the Barbacoa in the IntsantPot, but it was being a POS so I threw it in the oven. I think I'm glad I did, but it still would have been good in the pressure cooker. Also I really hope people stop panic buying stuff, as much as I'm fine with getting better at making my own tortillas I shouldn't have to since I live within half a mile of three tortilla factories.

                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.

                Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                masterbuilt gas smoker

                Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
