Had about 25 people at my house yesterday for little BBQ party. I have a friend who's recently picked up the smoking bug and I've been helping him out via phone while he's been trying his hand at smoking. So it seemed like I was due for a smoke myself and could introduce him and others to some new things beyond ribs and pulled pork. Don't get me wrong. I love ribs and PP. Just wanted to give these folks a little something different. So I did two 5lb Corned Beef Briskets, one 5lb bonless pork butt, four split chicken breasts, one breakfast fattie, one pizza fattie, and two cans of SPAM. All this to be done on my 18.5" WSM. Gonna be a full house! I'll create the other threads in their appropriate areas. Here's my pile o' meat... No pics but I soaked the briskets in water in the fridge for 6 hours to leech some of the salt out of them. Then the night before I gave it a rub down of EVOO, Pickling Spice and Old Bay Seasoning. All the meat rubbed down and off to bed for the night Tried a new lump charcoal. It sucked! Billowed white smoke forever. Anyhow, I got through that. I did the Minion Method. You can see in this picture the charcoal looked like cut up lumber. It's too uniform to be raw wood. I'll never buy this stuff again. Here's the CBB's after a couple of hours. The pork is on the bottom leaving the rest of the top open for the fatties to go on later for some appetizers. I filled my water pan with water, coke, and beer 165 and ready to foil. You can see the fat cap on the one on the left starting to peel back. Foiled up with a couple of fatties working Proud Weber papa showing off his family photo Things got a little frazzled and I didn't take any slicing pics. But here's part of the feast!
