Trying to get some testing in for the fourth of july. I just started this and I'd like to serve something at least edible.
I used 2-2.5-0 for the ribs. In my opinion they were perfect. The one with no rub tasted almost as good as the one with the rub. I've been making one without rub so I have a good baseline. Lets hope I can repeat this effort this weekend.
The brisket tastes delicious but it's a little tough. Next time I cook much slower and leave in the foil longer. I'll learn to multitask. I cooked to 165 then I foiled up to 195. That will work better if I slow it down. It was in for about 3.5 hours from start to finish. It was little.....3lber. Oh yeah, and let it set wrapped up for 2 hours. I only let it set for one. I'll get it down. I'm not doing brisket on the 4th.
It tastes better than it looks!
I took some notes also......
