    My 1st Overnight with my New StickBurner! #IamStillAwakeAt230am

    Ok, my friends, it's BBQ Time! One of our friends (the wife) is turning 40 tomorrow. So the husband called earlier this week and asked my so smoke up some meat for the party. Here's who I invited

    1.) My new 22" EOS, Tex (modeled after a Yoder Witicha)
    2.) A pair of 15 pound CAB Choice Brisket's! $3.28 a pound at Wal Mart - Thank you!!
    3.) 4 Picnic Roasts. They were on sale fr $0.89!!! I'm sharing these with some of my employees - they hear me talk about BBQ enough, so I want them to enjoy some more often!
    4.) 9 racks of St. Louis Cut ribs. I haven't cooked the Tyson brand much, and I see they are injected with a 7% brine solution. They look really good. I've also got some from my favorite packer, Hormel. So the side-by-side taste test will be useful for me tomorrow.
    5.) Several cans of Abita Strawberry Lager for the late night. I'm a super-loyal kind of guy, and Abita is located right here in good-ole Louisiana, so it just makes sense.

    I just LOVE BARK, so I've been seperating my points and flats. Here is what one of them looked like tonight.
    Well, since I have #SmallPicsSyndrome, you are going to have to click the link to see a real picture!

    Here they are at the start, 1:30 am:

    And here we are a few minutes ago, at 3 am. (Yes, I see now that the picture is a little fuzzy, but I'm not walking back outside for another hour!)

    I just put another split on, and the smoker it holding steady at 225, so I'm setting my phone to wake me in 70 minutes, and my first night-o-stickburning will continue!

    P.S. the Picnic's are looking nice on the WSM!

    Nice! Cool thread Mr. Paul!


      PaulstheRibList , lookin' good Paul. Great pics! Nice cooker...


        Looking Great Paul. That is a good size cook. I am looking forward to your completions pics.


          Holy cow, literally. Our wal-mart briskets are also $3.28/lb, but for Select and the occasional Choice.

          Looking GUD!!!


            Looks awesome...mouth waters...plans trip to the store!

            Sam's packers last I checked are $3.88/lb and flats $6.87/lb. Both are Angus/Choice. No points at Sam's. I have not cooked brisket YET.


              Ok, here is the 4 am update pic

              and the 7 am good news, Bark is Here, on the point's anyway.

              I moved the flats to the top rack. When they get a nice bark, I'll wrap until 203 degrees and that budda feeling!

              The pork picnic's are on the way as well, firmly planted in that stall


                Looking good Paul. I can't promise to do this every time but let me post your pics for you since you've got the tiny pic bug.

                        I'll try to put one below

                      Nice job Paul that should be the best party,awesome pics. what kind of wood are you using?




                        Alright...It's almost time!!!

                        Here are the ribs, 5 hours in. I like 6 hours, myself. Tug off the bone, bark nice and dark.

                        Did someone say, Brisket? Here are one of the flats...man, I'm getting hungry!

                        Spinaker, here is the new offset! Notice the mountain of wood and the new wood rack in the background.


                        And, to make it a 4 meat day, I added some Simon & Garfunkel chicken at the end of the day

                        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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        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.

                        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’.
