    4th of July Brisket (My 2nd Attempt at Brisket)

    Had a prime brisket for my second try at brisket. The first go went well, everyone enjoyed it, but I knew it could be improved on. On the first attempt I tried a rub that I personally ended up not caring for, so for this second one, I decided to go with a more (Texas) traditional style, even...

    I have a temperature controlled gravity feed smoker/ outdoor oven that I have been using since last winter. It has a temperature range from 200 to 700F. It recently occured to me I could use this to replicate flavor from a wood fired oven. It's worked out well. E.g., just did this Bolognese...
