    The one thing i've noticed when doing brisket on the PBC is that the thin bottom flat portion gets burnt every time. Not like burnt ends burnt, just plan ol' burnt. Figure I'm running at around 265 on avg for the duration of the cook. Next time I'm gonna actually try taking it off the hooks for a few hours to wrap it; guessing this should help avoid overcooking that bottom flap portion.

    Congrats.

    I just made it back into the grocery a couple of weeks ago. My wife insisted on accompanying me so I wouldn't get lost on the first two trips.

    Looking forward to how your brisket adventures turn out.

    That was my exact thought.....came out dry as heck (ironically, the best smoke ring I have ever gotten) and should have been braised in beef broth the entire time.

    Brisket is just one of the marvelous things that come out of a PBC.

    But I think you need to expand your menu. Have you ever heard of shrimp on the BBQ?

    Really. I think you know what's what with the PBC. Get it going. Hang your meat. When it comes out of the stall either wrap or put in a pan, cover and into the oven to finish.

    Wishing you the best!

    Go for it! Also, Select Flats are just not going to come out well on a smoker, in my opinion. Much better off braising them.

    Brisket is awesome in the barrel. I can still smell them bad boys.

  • Upon returning to the grocery store, I shall buy a brisket!

    At the end of April will be two weeks out from me getting the second dose of the vaccine. My risk tolerance, being quite low, means that I have not set foot in a grocery store since early March of 2020. (I haven't even seen my office at the University since early September!)

    I've been thinking of a way to commemorate this and it just hit me.....I have yet to attempt a "real" brisket on my PBC!

    (I did some USDA Select brisket flats a few months ago...and those were....not great.)

    But when I am able, I shall walk into that HEB (and hope to heck they haven't rearranged the entire store) go directly to the meat section and peruse the USDA prime briskets (which, if I am lucky, might be on sale).

    I think I've gained enough smoking experience that I could do a marginally decent job on a brisket. I'm much better at fire management (not that the PBC needs much of that) and in knowing, generally, when I want to wrap, and when I want to take it out of the smoker (based on pork butts only, of course). I certainly have watched enough Youtube videos on briskets.

    I think it would be a cool way of commemorating feeling safe to venture back out into the world with a bit of normalcy, as it were.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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 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.
