Aaaah, the end of Summer, classic cookout weather*, last holiday to camp, go to the lake, play some golf, or just hang out and have a beer. Here is a 'bits and pieces' recap from the house of thirdeye. What was cooking at your house?

American Wagyu smash burgers were on the menu for noon Friday.

Saturday was steak night. Veggies went on first, then everything else in order.

A little edge sear .... we like fillets between rare and medium rare.

Sunday was a Coppa roast, which is the money muscle end of a pork butt. It has several muscle groups and is my favorite pork roast.

Served up with some grilled zucchini, baby peppers, cauliflower salad (similar to potato salad) and guacamole.

On Monday morning, a weather alert for the chance of snow (of all things) became a reality. We spent most of the day preparing for that and wound up cooking breakfast for dinner with leftover pork, grilled brats, and some hard boiled eggs.

*And sure enough, later in the evening we got rain, turning to snow. And boy did it.

All looks real good. Wow, snow? Yikes! Glad you got almost all of your cooks in. Nice work.
I did a Brisket Saturday. Came out very good for texture, etc. Was very salty though, and I don't use salt in my rub or injection. Odd, it was a Prime packer from Sam's. I'll have to look into that next time. Thanks for sharing.

I too, did a packer brisket graded Choice or better ($2.98 lb). Light trim, so it ended up at around 13 lbs. 10 hours unwrapped on the WSM at 225F on average. 1 hour wrapped on the WSM at 280-285F to an IT of 207F and almost probe tender. 3.5 hours wrapped in a 170F oven. Soooo good and got 12 oz of au jus. No pics.

Grilled a few things on the kettle, but nothing on the smoker.

Got a brisket thawing for next weekend on the pooper

No bbq. With the fires out here the air quality is for shit so wood smoke banned. Waiting on my Horizon offset too. Hopefully I can do some smoking real soon.

Did some pork ribs and a piece of beef in the smoker as well as Gary's bake beans and tater salad. Coming off of 6 week my fat free diet.
Was a very enjoyable meal.

I smoked up a bunch of chicken legs but forgot to take any pics. Too hungry by the time they were finished.
