    It's probably unnecessary but I did it the first time I made it and it was awesome so it just became a thing I do

    It's not close to all smoker/grill capable in this but a decent bit is and if you also like Asian food from the kitchen this is a really good book to have around

    I seriously might try smoking one for 6 hours and then sous vide for 24.

    I have heard that at a certain temp the meat stops allowing smoke in. I will try smoking first.

    Yeah, well some people are not fortunate enough to have a microwave big enough for a 12lb packer or we would all be doing this.

    has anyone itt ever drybrined a whole spatchcocked turkey for a few days and then smoked it?

    is it unnecessary to spatchcock the bird since you're smoking low and slow?

    Spatchcocking is better and you don't really go that low and slow on a bird

    Spatchcocked and dry brined for a few days is the only way I roll. I don’t make very good bbq, but the last few turkeys have been outstanding using this method. I think the last one I did was 48 hours of salt under the skin, washed/cleaned off, and then another 24 hours with Meathead’s turkey seasoning.

    Met a guy from Manchester England while in Paris today. When I told him I was from Texas he bent the knee. Said there’s a new place in England called Red’s that is a chain of BBQ joints started by a guy from Texas that married a British chick. Said it’s the hottest thing going in England right now.

    He was so proud to tell me that he just ordered a Weber smoker and was going to start honing his craft.

    Asked me all sorts of questions to which my reply to them all was liquid smoke and Dale’s

    What’s a good progression of easy to difficult while I’m learning to smoke?
    1. Ribs
    2. Poultry (spatchcock or beer can?)
    3. Pork butt
    4. Brisket

    Butt
    Chicken
    Ribs
    Brisket

    Ribs aren’t really that hard, you will just get lost in deciding to do 3-2-1, 4-2, 5, 8-9-10 and it will become more difficult than it should be. Skip that nonsense and just smoke the fuckers until they are done and then they will be aslmost as easy as butts.

    My basic understanding of ribs at this point is to remove the membrane and square them off, St. Louis style... maybe wrap them in foil somewhere late in the cook.

    Pork butt is by far the most for giving
    Ribs aren't difficult at all, fairly forgiving
    Chicken isn't hard, you don't really smoke it slow

    Last day of the year where I think the weather won’t be too hot to smoke some cheese. Get it all set up, checked the temp a few times today then walked by and grill was sitting 350.

    I feel like every few months we see thermoworks deals posted here. I feel like they are usually at least 15%.

    Not that I don't appreciate the deal, the *never* just made me second guess

    What’s a good thermometer to gauge the temp inside the (gas) grill? I’ve always seen not to trust the one built in.
