    My best bud is in town, so we're cooking & showing he/son how2BBQ! #SpreadingTheJoy

    So, what does one do when your best friend comes over to hang out for a few day? BBQ, of course. And, teach his son how to do it well!

    Last night, we split a 16 pound brisket, injected one side and not the other, and put them on the stick burner somewhere around 11 pm. They had a great time trimming and prepping the brisket.

    We also picked up some beef short ribs for added fun. Figured they would be ready in time for early breakfast.

    Ribs were overcooked after 4.5 hours on, but they were still really good.

    About noon, we put on 2 racks of ribs on the WSM. My friend's son did all the prep, as I gave instruction.

    They came out great!!!

    The briskets, well, the fire management had some spottiness, so the temps went up and down. We only ate a little bit of it at dinner, with all the chicken and veggies we also cooked.

    I got them a Weber 22" grill to take home to get restarted on outdoor cooking!

    It is so fun to share the knowledge and passion of cooking.

    Thanks to God for friends and sharing from the provision He has given us!

      I cut my teeth on the WSM, and I love them! But my future is in burning more and more and more and more and more and more logs!!!!

      Did I tell you my secret, Huskee, that I have a Jambo Backyard on the way?

      PaulstheRibList Woohoo! That's great. I'll keep your secret until you're ready to share it publicly on, say, a BBQ forum or something.

      Huskee, I really like the #OneOfEverything.

      Today, I used the Pellet Cooker, the WSM, the Stickburner and the Charcoal Grill.

      The Insulated Cabinet got the day off.

    Awesome Cook PaulstheRibList , I was camping this week and took the kettle and SnS and was sharing this site and the science of salt to some friends along with a couple pork butts for pulled pork.
    Congrats on your Secret, I can't wait to see that in action. I started fabricating my stick burner a little while ago and it is a Jambo Backyard clone sort of. since I have never seen one up close I used the Feldon's pit calculator and winging it. I plan on getting more done this week and will start posting the build.


    Looks great, always fun to share the learning! My 6 year old is gonna be the best smoker around when she grows up, she already helps with the prep and wrapping.

    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.
