Labor Day Labor of Love

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Just got done prepping the main courses for labor day. here's a 10# brisky that i've been slobbering over for weeks. trimmed it some and gave it a good coating of lysanders bourbon rub..the mop is just gonna be some beef bouillon, apple grape juice and JD. I'll put it in about midnight tommorrow night and baby sit it for a couple of hours then nap and put on part 2

Part 2 consists of 3 racks of untrimmed spares with lysanders bourbon and spicy bourbon rub. they will also be mopped but with pork bouillon and then glazed with sweet and sour sauce

also have some chicken going on the grill and a turkey breast that will go on the rottiserre after it smokes for about 2 hours.. a friend gave me some jalepenos and i might try some abt's which i never have tried.. plus the usual corn on the cob and smoked whole potatoes

got the grandson a new toy too last week but he can't understand why it's not as big as pop-pops

Brisket looks GOOOOD... They didn't have toy tractors like that when we were younguns.. This might not be the place for this post but I gotta do it.. My grandson was staying with us this summer for a while and I was
inna middle of fixing the deck on my old gravely riding mower. I let him
ride it around in the yard while I was doing it. He got ruts wore through the grass from playing with it so much.

I put the deck back on and showed him how to operate it and now U can't THROW him back on it.. PDT_Armataz_01_19.gif Hemi..

and heres the ribs after 3 hours. not going to foil them but give them some intense spritzing for the next 2 hours then start glazing them with sweet and sour sauce..man i can't wait

Good deal! Excellent looking brisket and bones there Linescum...very impressive. It's meat like this that you all put out that really gets the hunger going for another smoke! Wonderful....

Thanks for sharing the pic of your grandkid and your lawn tractor. Really nice and something to treasure. They only had pedal-power when I was a kid!

You certainly earned points for a beautiful brisket.
