Thread Starter 
Hi all,
Here we go...she is a beautiful beast, but I am paying $1.89 lb..I thought that was a deal, till I read $1.55 per lb... icon_evil.gif
In any event..we seared her, searing is a big family even now in our house...yes I know E mental note must get welder gloves....where tho??
We are just starting out....so its gonna be a long day/night/tomorrow!
here she is naked....Steve note the "pink tools" wink.gif

here she is on fire...

here she is all dressed up and ready to party....

and now at the dance with two small butts...only ones I could find..whats up with that?? and they had trimmed the fat cap to nothing...cool.gif who are the fat police....??
About the butts...the one on the left is Jeffs rub the one on the right..the really red one is red raspberry jello, pepper, smittys...and salt...
more later thanks for checking the q-vue!!

Looks like a great start...I've been plateaued at 150 on my brisket for over 3 hours now...with that beast, you have a job for sure biggrin.gif but it's worth it as you also know.

That's a big ole brisket! Might be at that one a while...but it's all good :{) Ahhh you doing a "hot butt"? The Smitty's works well for that...but don't forget to put a bit in the mop too :{)

Red bull!!
now that would have been a great idea..perhaps a red bull, single malt run? ..LOL
we just added two fatties to the mix..c.b. wanted a chili cheese fattie and I made a chorizo/egg breakie fattie....
here is the photo shoot!

Great idea on the fatty, looks very good. I'm a big believer, as long as it tastes good, that's all that matters. If it looks good, those are bonus points. I'd say the Cabana boy is doing pretty well if in any event. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

I am up, we have decided that I am terrible at rock band two, but that is ok..my charcoal sucks worse than me..i am fighting temps all night and had to get more coal cuz i don't think my 10# bag is going to last into the wee hours of the night....damn I forgot the red bull..
he briskey was at 150 for a spell she is now at 180-183..for about an hour now...lets see if before it was a pump fake and this is a perhps the real stall....
post #15 of 45
Hang in there Kelly, and good thinking about getting more coal. The Red Bull won't forget you...
post #16 of 45
Sounds like you are having quite the time there. It could have been worse tho. It could have started raining while you were on the way back from getting more charcoal. I finished my brisket in the oven for that reason today.
