    The secret to good brisket

    Tallbm hit the nail on the head. I wrapped at 145 when the temperature didn’t move for an hour and a half. Once done and rested 9 hours later and thought it tasted like juicy roast beef. I was very disappointed. No wrap next time. And I’m sticking with a traditional Texas rub

    The secret to good brisket

    I threw a 6lb brisket (after trimming the fat), on the ECB morning at 5AM. I liberally salted it with coarse salt yesterday, then rubbed down with 2tbsp coarse black pepper, tbsp sugar, tsp garlic, tsp ancho chili powder and a tsp of chipotle chili powder. I followed a recipe for the rub, but I...

    Black pepper and coffee

    You boys want a powerful cup of coffee without breaking the bank or self esteem (you know your pinky’s raised when you drink it) by buying Starbucks every day? I buy a can of Cafe Bustelo Espresso each week for 3.99 and make a pot or two daily in my stove top percolator. I drink it black over...

    Covid Vaccine ?

    Nope, I volunteered. I don’t know where the drafted thing came from. I wanted to be a door gunner in the army and after scoring highly on the entrance exams I thought it was a guarantee! Nope, the army told be EOD, medic or cook so I walked into the Air Firfe office and gave him all my paperwork...

    Thanks, will do! I want to try my hand at briskets, but am loathe to do so until I gain better control of the heat. As it is, I have a hard time getting the heat above 230. I made a 8lb Boston butt this past weekend. After wrapping for the stall I tried to power through the back half by putting...

    Black pepper and coffee

    A guy I know adds a touch of cayenne and unrefined coconut oil. He often pours me a mug from his work thermos and it is very good.

    Turned out great, btw! I brought temp up to 275, and was done in about 11 hours! I wrapped at 165, but took forever to get out of the stall because high winds kept driving temps down. Plenty of leftovers to drop off at my family’s who are down with the ‘rona.

    As a first time smoker, long time lover, I woke up at 4AM today, and threw some B&B lump charcoal on my modded ECB and threw my coal chimney on the grill half filled with more coal. Once the coals ashed over,I dumped them in the loaded coal pan and threw about 4-5 pieces of maple on the coals...
