golfnguitarz saying hello from Tejas

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by golfnguitarz, Feb 16, 2008.

  1. Noob here. Have done alot of grilling on a 3 burner grill, but have just purchased a Masterbuilt electric smoker to try to get the perfect brisket(or close). Doesn't look like the Masterbuilt can handle a large brisket on one shelf, is it ok to cut one down and use several shelfs??

    Anyway, my user name pretty well describes the rest of my addictions! My wife complains that I probably couldn't have picked two more expensive ones.

    Welcome to SMF Golf...Seems a few have asked that question. Point from flat..etc. I have cut them, and have found that if ya do that... you can get two different meals. Do the point for pulled beef..or the "burnt ends" thing <search that> and the flat for slicing. However I think I cut mine "wrong". Someone like Texas-hunter or Okie or a number of others will stop by soon and explain it.

    Welcome Golf. I have done tons of brisket,but never considered cutting one. I would imagine though if cut right it would be like buying one already cut.If you're not sure where to cut,I would go on a recon mission to the store and compare a cut (flat) to a whole packer trimmed brisket.

    Welcome G-n-G, is that a "tele" in your picture?.....Looks pretty sweet! Lots of knowledge in this group, just ask. How do you like the Masterbuilt electric smoker?.....I am leaning toward purchasing one of them.

    Welcome to the group, Golf. Glad to have you... from a fellow golf addict... Between golf & smokin' (meat), I guess I should be glad for my wallet that I never became a string man too! My younger brother is quite an accomplished guitarist/keyboardist/ and vocalist, though, and I know what he invests in his equipment...(Oh well, at least being related to me and my smoking passion, he's not exactly in danger of becoming a "starving artist").

    Cheers,
    Brian
     
  15. Yeah, that's a tele (sorta). I actually built and painted that for a friend. It is made out of Mahogany with a Maple top that was stained to give it that swimming pool look. Real Fender tele's are made out of Alder, so in that sense, it ain't a real Tele, just looks like one.

    So far, I like the Masterbuilt. I am in the process of smoking my first brisket right now. My impressions are that it appears to be well-made. It is big enough to kinda stuff a 10 lb. brisket on one shelf, but I ended up cutting my first one in half(separated the point from the flat). I really like the side drawer they have for adding wood chips so you don't have to open up the smoker and let all of the heat out. Some one was thinkin!
