Ya I hear you Ray. I don't fault anyone for being restrictive, but I know everyone has an opinion on Covid and figured some people might be getting together anyway. I look forward to this coming to an end and being able to do normal smoking stuff again.
It may be store to store, but their press release says all stores during the pandemic.
I have done a few pulled pork, but I made the rookie mistake of planning on them being done at a certain time, as we had company. The pork didnt agree. So I ended up pulling early. It was ok, not great. The second one was ok too, but I think that was a poor piece of meat. Maybe I need to venture...
Good call! They said on their Website that they would be open to the public to help people get the stuff they need ( And help their bottom line, with restaurants closed ) but that may not hold true everywhere.
Ya I figured with the pandemic everything was at at a halt but I'm willing to take my chances LOL
So far I've done ribs, pork butt, and a few different things using chuck roast in the place of brisket ( barbacoa tacos, poor man burnt ends, etc) and some chicken. I really want to master...
I've wanted to try not wrapping at all, but for some reason I'm hesitant. I always feel like they will be dry. I KNOW that's not the case if I do right and spritz, but maybe it's time I tried and see if that helps. Thanks!
Yesterday by chance I found myself near a Restaurant Depot, which is a restaurant supplier, that sells in bulk. I went in on a whim, since I don't have a restaurant, and they are open to the public during this pandemic.
What this means is, prime cuts of brisket, steaks, etc are...
I know there is still a pandemic going on and whatnot, and that not withstanding, anyone in AZ do anything as a group or get together to smoke or share smoking knowledge?
I'm in Mesa and pretty much the only person I know who has a smoker, I'd love to meet some other local smokers...
I am fairly new to smoking, and have decided on mastering the basics before I got crazy on both meat and smokers. I have a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite XL Pellet smoker. Moved on from a dyna glo Electric that sucked.
Anyhow, last couple of racks I have done have been my best and 90%...
New guy here, Matthew. I am in Mesa. Really new to smoking, and love this forum!
I currently have a Dyna-Glo Electric, and its been ok, but having trouble with it keeping temps, sending it back, and getting something else. I really want to get to off-set, but you gotta crawl before...
Hey!! Lucky duck, getting out of the Valley is on my bucket list LOL
I have gotten fantastic help on this forum, so I am going into my next smoke with a plan and confident.
I got a thermometer to get accurate temps, it was delivered this morning, so I did a test burn and found my digital built...
