    Low and slow or fast and hot ?

    Ive been doing everything low and slow - 225. I am now experimenting with hot and fast - 265-275 for ribs and the one rack I made was so much more tender than low and slow. Now I am gonna try a tri-tip today. Actually two- making one for a friends wifes Birthday. Rub is salt pepper / garlic/...

    First Tri-Tip -WSM.

    I agree - 190 if youre doing a brisket (I do 203) but not tri-tip. 135-140, then pull it. I smoke it at 225 for 6 hrs, then char on both sides on BBQ.

    Last Dights Brisket

    looks like the brisket from smart and final, or wallmart? Not enough fat in it for sure. I think thats the problem more than anything.

    Brisket help!!

    203 IT. 225 cook for 14-16 hrs. At 150 you will have the "stall" - dont panic. Wrap TIGHTLY in foil, with some juices, beer, some of the spices you like, and put back in till it hits 203. Theres nothing else to it - only patience. Dont open it, dont look at it, dont do ANYTHING. At the end...

    Smoked Pork Boston Butt (Pulled Pork) via Hot n Fast

    NOW !! Put the mailbox mod onto it! Youll love it. Fill the water pan with sand - its only a heat sink, not to add moisture. the pan is NOT there for moisture - just to help stabilize the heat.

    Simple Smoke Chicken Wings - Party Staple

    I have an MES, and Ive smoked them many times. No crisping up is possible, and at 275 max heat - they take 4-1/2 hrs. Tossing them in sauce - with the smoke - makes a great snack. A dozen at a time for me! I have since gotten a chrgrill, which I have been using more and more to but that char...
