  1. Pre-Memorial Day Brisket (and other stuff)

    After all my talking about how easy a brisket was to smoke I thought I better put my money where my mouth is.

    All the Briskets were huge, so I had the butcher bring out a grocery basket full of briskets and found one more to my liking.

    Friday Evening:

    Put a few Chicken Leg Quarters in some Brine for tomorrow

    Sunday Morning:

    5:30 – Fired up my smoker, Pulled Brisket out of the fridge.

    Hey I felt a little hankering for something different, so I decided to take a walk on the wild side, instead of my usual Salt and Pepper I went all out “SPOG”

    6:00 AM – Brisket on, Smoker at 225°

    7:45 AM – added another split

    8:30 AM – Started prepping the Beans

    9:00 AM – Beans on,  Brisket looking good

    12:00 PM – Pulled Beans and Wrapped Brisket, added another split

    2:00 PM – Added another split

    3:00 PM – Put on Leg Quarters and Boudin added another split to bump temp to 275° - 285°

    5:30 PM – Pulled Brisket, Chicken and Boudin, Everything is resting

    The only time I opened the door was to put on or take off something, Just let her cook.

    Getting ready to get it cleaned and trimmed up a bit



    A little SPOG and waiting for the smoker


    Might as well get some Beans going



    Put the Beans on at 9:00 AM


    Pulled Brisket at 12:00 to wrap in Butcher Paper



    Leg Quarters all seasoned and ready to go


    Brisket Off and starting to rest


    Chicken and Boudin



    Another pic before wrapping and resting



    And starting to slice it up




    See ---   Nothing to it    Give it a try

    I cold smoked a ham yesterday & we have been munching on that.

    The smoker has 13 lbs. of bacon in it right now. Gonna cold smoke it for about 10 hours.

    Probably just gonna drink a few beers & hang out & smell the smoke.

    Have you been getting any of that rain that's been up your way.
