    I just had to do vortex ribs

    I’ve had some health issues and haven’t been as active on the forum as I would like. However, I just had to post these ribs. I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time and I’ve hesitated because I haven’t been able to find any decent ribs. We were at Wally world a few days ago and I came...

    I gave chuck burnt ends a try on my new Kettle. Starting to get better at temp control with it. Simple smoke, just did SPOG with cut up chuck then when the color was good after about 3 hours foil panned them with some BBQ sauce and some beef broth. Couldn't quite keep the pictures in order...

    New Weber Kettle Master Touch and vortex

    So for the "tax free" weekend they have in MA I bought a Weber Kettle Master Touch. Then I bought a vortex on line. Did the burn in on it to see about temp control etc. and then threw a few burgers on it during the week. All good. Last night I tried the vortex and did some wings. I had heard...

    Kettle Yard bird with the Vortex

    Another cook with the new toy. I had not done a beer can Chicken in at least 5 years. Since getting the Vortex and seeing posts about using it for Infer-red cooking, I thought I would give it a try with beer can chicken. I put a foil pan under to catch the drippings and keep the kettle clean...

    Brisket Point on Kettle - second time a charm

    After purchasing my first ever Weber Kettle (Master Touch) a couple months back, one of the first things I did was smoke a brisket flat. It was tasty, but a few things were not great. I had temp inconsistency, didn't start early enough so had to foil wrap so there was no bark, and was not very...

    Mississippi Pot Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Creamy Pepperocini Beef Fat Gravy, and Jalapeno Cornbread After visiting a good friend, we got to talking about various meals and he asked if I've ever done a Mississippi Pot roast. I hadn't to this point. I know there was a big wave of...

    Smoking a pork shoulder while keeping my social distance

    I went to Shop Rite the other day, and they were sold out of Chicken. But they had plenty of pork and beef! So I bought a pork shoulder and am smoking it today while I work out of the house. I put the rub on last night. I am smoking it with applewood, and will bring to IT of 200 degrees.

    Rolled Brisket on Weber Kettle

    Hi Everyone I just got done smoking my first brisket on a Weber Kettle and it turned out dry. Was hoping someone could give me some advice so next time it's much better. Here in Australia, the supermarkets mostly sell briskets that are rolled into cylinder shapes and strung up, so they are a...

    Weber Kettle pellet cooker

    Google suggested this to me. Haven't seen it anywhere else. Somebody wants to make a pellet cooker addon for the old kettle. I guess if it's cheap why not. Anyone know anything about this thing or the guy making it?

    Butcher paper on the Weber

    Wanted to mention I had success using butcher paper on the 22" kettle. I wrapped a brisket and held it for 2 hours using an indirect heat method. My charcoal basket for the Weber kettle is the same size as the Slow and Sear. I use a water pan the size of a loaf pan just above the charcoal. I...

    Well I have really been liking the wood fired flavor that I have been getting with the Lang! However I wanted to smoke 9 chicken wings for dinner last night. Firing up the Lang for 9 wings seemed really dumb. So I thought, I wonder if I can run the WSM on just wood. So here goes the...
