    Multiple parallel cooks....

    OK, I have 20 friends and family in for the weekend. Tonight we have a suite at the Astro's game but right now I have a whole packer dry brining, a Boston butt, several slabs of St. Louis cut ribs and sausage... and a few pounds of thick cut bacon. The plan is to get home from the game (11 pm or so) and fire up the Yoder to 225...put in the brisket and pork shoulder tonight.... up about 4 or so and add all the bacon and check the pellets maybe wrap the brisket if the temp is right...about 7 toss on the ribs and unwrap? ... take the brisket and shoulder out when done but by 203... eat about 2.... wish me luck! Pics to come.

    Wow that sounds awesome, except maybe watching the Astro's.

    I have seen them twice, lost both times. But I did get to see a juiced Mark McGuire jack one into the upper deck in the Astrodome, and Ron Gant hit one off the left field scoreboard.

      I laughed out loud.

      I used to love the Astros. Then they apparently gave up and moved to the American League, and what's the point anymore? I now feel about them the way I felt about the Saints when John Mecom owned them.

    Hey...we have a luxury suite for 21. My college roommate drove down from Chicago with his family. Others came from Austin, Mississippi and Utah. Even if we get clobbered (again) it will be a great night. Just hope we get home in time to fire up the Yoder!


      No doubt. Stinks they couldn't sign the #1 draft pick in the whole stinkin' draft. I'd be scared to draft a pitcher throwing that fast that young.

      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!

      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’.

      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.

      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 because temperature control is so much easier.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
