    The Secret To Good Sliced Brisket Defies Conventional Wisdom

    Just reporting back on the brisket I did this weekend based on this post. I took the smoker out to our desert property to do the brisket out there - forgot all my thermometers, didn't even have the one for the smoker. Just decided to time it instead. Smoker was set at 230 degrees. Started...

    The Secret To Good Sliced Brisket Defies Conventional Wisdom

    Great thread. I am new, sort of, to smoking. I say sort of because I've had my smoker for a while but haven't had the opportunity to use it for a while (life and all). Anyway, I have done a couple of briskets, nothing spectacular. So I am going to try this this weekend. I know this is a...

    Brisket Rub

    When you apply the rub, do you let it sit overnight in the fridge, or just smoke it right away?

    Help - Turkey not so good - UPDATE

    Could be because it was cut up. For a whole turkey, you'd usually brine 1 hour per pound. But if its cut up, I'd imagine the time would be much less.

    Brining a Turkey that has been factory injected with Broth

    Yes, I do it all the time. Your brine will be much more salty than what the factory did, so you might reduce a smidge.

    Smoking a Turkey Breast - Cure or No Cure?

    Hi Guys, I am planning to smoke a couple of whole turkey breasts for Thanksgiving. I have always brined my turkeys with brown sugar/salt/apple juice or cider brine and then just cooked in the oven. They always turn out moist and delicious. Now I want to smoke a turkey and am hearing that...

    Why is my Turkey Black?

    Hi Everyone, Thought I'd come back and let you all know what happened.  I contacted GMG and they gave me the list that I post previously.  Nothing worked, so I contacted them again and they were very good about sending out the controller.  That did the trick!  I now have golden brown chicken!  Yay!

    Why is my Turkey Black?

    Thought this might be helpful to some folks.  I got this from GMG Technical Support.  As for me, I have cleaned out the fire pot and made sure #7 & 8 are not the problem.  Going to give it another try tonight.  If it still doesn't work, I'll be requesting a new controller.
