    Oh neat. I was really struggling to get the concept so I’m glad it had photos. I will def grab one of those. Past couple smokes I’ve finished with some shrimp kebabs just using residual heat. This seems like a no brainer.

    I don’t ever sauce ribs I make at home. I just set some sauce out for people to use if they want.

    My buddy brought that brisket over to cook, so I could teach him......
    Well he broke out the meat church on it before he brought it over.
    I went ahead and taught him how to do the basic trimming, get the deckle fat out and most of the fat cap, etc. Then threw the fat trimmings in a pan to make tallow.

    So now I have made meat church seasoned beef tallow

    After a while in the fridge, next to some non seasoned tallow

    During early Covid I took down a half rack of spares by myself for lunch and I think for dinner I had a piece of lettuce

    Got the 700. I bought a little shop vac to keep beside it and use it to clean the box and the bottom of the grille out every 2nd or 3rd time I use it.

    Already have an ash vac for the Egg and fire pit so good to go on that one. Complete ignorance here, but when you say the “box” do you mean the pellet intake thingy? The massive thing on the back of my grill? I’m going to have to wait until these 40 lbs of pellets get worked through

    It really is awesome. I love watching the temp history on my app. It never moves. I smoked a brisket for 16 hours and it never moved one time.

    I’ve had monsters that take up to 24 hrs. Depends on the weight. Speaking of which, anybody having trouble finding big packers lately? Largest briskets at sams are like 12 lbs all of a sudden

    Smoking a 25 lb brisket is almost as dumb as buying one, imo
    You're much better off buying two smaller ones

    Ohh and yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if the current popularity of brisket and beef in general won't lead to most people not being able to find monster briskets.

    But monster briskets arnt what you want, you want like 14 to 16 pound packers at most, then you trim them

    It was 17lbs. Throw on the smoker and smoke at 180 for 8 hours to get a good crust, wrap in butcher paper and then smoke to 204…..
