"That's longer than I smoke my meat!"..............I walk around the house mumbling this all the time cuz I think its funny and I laugh every time I hear it. My wife thinks I'm nuts..........probably for many other reasons, but this mannerism just reinforces her opinion.
I've had the sandwich from Arby's. It was OK. I thought it could have used more meat. It tasted good, had great smoky flavor, just wanted more. Also, just a touch dry. And, was there a condiment on it? Did they smear mayo it? I can't recall. That, and take the cheese off, for cripe's sakes. I like cheese, but it doesn't belong on brisket. I want to taste the meat, don't hide it, jeepers cripes. You smoke it for an alleged 12 hours, don't cover it up. Oh, and the price. It was good, but not 8 bucks good.
My oldest son, who is a senior in high school, thought it was OK, too. He has become quite the BBQ connoisseur since I started doing BBQ about 5-6 years ago. He tries ribs wherever he goes and he uses my ribs as the measuring stick. Has yet to find better ribs, he says. But, good ribs are hard to find in Wisconsin.
I digress. What I need to do is smoke a brisket. I haven't done one yet.
