    Bacon Season has arrived

    A few weeks ago our Costco had bellies on sale so I picked up two nice ones to make into bacon. I like to dry cure and cold smoke my bacon. I had planned on smoking on the 24th of October, but life got in the way so Smoke day will be Nov 2nd. I will be cold smoking and plan on smoking 18 hours...

    3-2-1 Ribs w/ SmokinAl's rub

    Safeway had "St Louis style" ribs on sale last week for 1/2 off, yesterday was the day. These were 3-2-1 ribs done @ 225* in the Traeger as I wasn't going to be able to babysit the propane smoker. The "set & forget" of the Traeger is really nice sometimes. Let me start with a shoutout to...

    Heat Glove suggestions

    I'm looking for some decent heat resistant gloves. I have a pair that are just way too bulky so i cant really maneuver much with them. They almost look like gloves made out of fireman gear or slippery rubber. I see a lot of videos where people are using what look like your typical winter/snow...

    Power Paranoia Warranted?

    Seeking advice on improving my brisket cook

    I recently cooked a whole packer brisket, and it turned out OK, but not great. I'd like to hear thoughts from the group here and recommendations for how I can do better next time. General info: Brisket was 11.32 lb prime from Costco. Trimmed almost all of the fat, but made sure flat and point...

    What's your favorite method for smoking brisket?

    This a poll, so select from list above! Franklin, of Franklin's BBQ in Austin TX, recommends the use of butcher paper in smoking brisket. I bought some butcher paper a while back, and intend to use it soon in smoking brisket. I've never used the butcher paper before, just leaving my brisket...

    What is your favorite wood for Brisket?

    This is a poll! So select from list! I have only smoked brisket a few times, and when I did, it was never as good as some of the good local restaurants. I live in N. Georgia, and we've got some good pork BBQ places, but only a few that know how to cook brisket. Moonie's BBQ, in Flowery...

    Pitts and Spitts Pellet Smoker arrived.

    Well after years of seeing others use pellet smokers mostly Treagar. I had to try one myself. I opted to go with a trusted brand and I'm glad I did. Its build to last and boy does it smoke. Can't wait to fire it up for real today.

    Brisket for the WIN!

    Loving the flavor... lately, I have stopped using the Texas crutch. I've been pellet smoking lately, so starting with low temps (190) to get more smoke, then up to 250 once I hit 160ish IT. Every so often I am adding a little spritz and additional sprinkles of my rub.
