    Throw another case on the barbie!!

    So last week I had a successful cook for 60 kids and word got around and I was approached about doing a cook for a faculty appreciation day next Friday, about 80 this time. I mentioned the Cajun Bandit door in another thread and went ahead and pulled the trigger so hopefully it will be here by cook time.
    My goal for this year was feeding 200 people, with these 2 cooks I am almost there.

    If anyone has any testing ideas concerning large quantities I will be happy to do it as most of my tests have just been 1 test and 1 control. I'd really like to start practicing brisket, so if the prices could drop to $1.10 like pork butts that would be great.

    I am thinking.... I am thinking........ It hurts a little though.


      For briskets a 4 hour hold ain't bad, but it is better to just let them cool off at room temp until they get to 140 if you going that route. Then pop in a warming oven if you need to hold longer.

      I cook them ahead of time and have awesome results just cooling at room temp until 140, and then chill, then reheating and serving. You just have to establish a mack daddy bark on the cook. Reheat to 165.

        Did you reply to the wrong thread???

      All are done except 1, used Spinaker rub (my little helper dropped a little much chili powder so we sweetened with a touch of white sugar) and they came out great.
      Bonus pic of why you get a good digital thermo, might be hard to see in the pic but WSM was reading about 245, prob was at 295.

        Wow, those look great. How did the rub do on those butts? _John_

      Spinaker It was really great, I hadn't tried it since I did my taste test thing last year and I remember it being a favorite of many people. As usual there were probably 10 texts about it being the best pulled pork they've ever had, 2 proposals (going through my wife which is a little funny, they said they could treat me better if I fed them like that) and requests for more.

      I made plenty and I think it will be my go to for big cooks, nice flavor profile when it's all cooked up.

        Great to Hear. But I must admit that I got the base from somewhere and tweeted it a bit to make it my own.

    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.
