Long time listener, first time caller. First time smoker purchase should I go BGE or Primo?
Wait, how have you guys been doing it?
I own a Primo
I think you should too
I can second this opinion.
I have a large BGE and love it. Never have used a Primo though.
Late to the brisket talk, but it was similar to Salmon to me for a long time.
I was blessed with kick-ass taste buds and really don’t have anything I don’t like, I truly like every vegetable, meat, fish, etc. but I do have ones i prefer over others.
Went a long time before having good brisket, which was like fresh Salmon. Thought it was really good, but not elite.
Had fresh caught steelehead for the first time a couple years after I moved to Oregon (that I cooked, kept it simple on ingredients and wood planked it). It was the difference between good pizza and normal pizza. Both are good, but great pizza is so far away better.
Had good brisket for the first time a couple years ago and I changed my entire tune on it. It’s an elite food when done correctly, but a marginal one when done poorly.
It’s also hard as fuck to smoke. I’ve done 1 and it turned out ‘meh.’
Thank god for the burnt ends which turned out, surprisingly, pretty damn good and the party scarfed them down actually believing I knew what i was doing.
I’m about 2 years into that smoke life and it’s a great activity, but it will absolutely make you question why you ever thought you knew about ‘good’ smoked food prior to doing it.
I'm cooking lunch for 250+ people tomorrow an hour and a half from home
Loading the war wagon up and its raining
Wood is under the cover, trying to work on a strategy for keeping it dry on the way over as there is pretty good chance of rain in the morning, but it all should let up in time for the event
On the grilling front, I've been super happy with my GrillGrates that I picked up last month. They really do create a hotter environment for searing without worrying about flare ups. Wife texted earlier in the day saying she would take care of dinner. She put everything together but hadn't cooked the steaks. Fired up the grill and went to work.
She bought the grass fed ribeyes because she believes they are the healthier choice. They might be but they're noticeably leaner and less flavorful in my opinion.
Yes, I’m anti-grassfed for that reason. At least finish it on corn/grain to get the fat.
go ahead and admit it fish
the Sculpin was your wife's beverage
that sounds like work and not a fun tasting hobby.
I'd also have major anxiety about fucking up the cook for that many people.... unless it is burgers and hot dogs
What's on the menu?
I love it but never buy it at $14 a sixer. The wife picks it up for me now and again as a treat.
It was just sausage and hot dogs for lunch to start the event, over 250 of each
Catered by someone else catfish is being consumed now
Billdozering a chicken tomorrow. Can't wait
By the way
Hudsons meat market smoked sausage is fucking heads and shoulders above the mass production shit that is coming out of Elgin these days
I resisted the urge to wrap my ribs today and am quite happy with the results
Excellent grill marks
They look a bit dry in the pic, but they didn't seem dry at all while eating. I do know for sure it's time to invest in some new knives though.
Knives can be sharpened
Just buy one quality chef’s knife.
Doing ribs for the first time in my pellet grill. Doing one rack today with just the pellets going and will do another 2 racks tomorrow with an a-maze-n tube smoker to see if the supplemental smoke is better or not.
Old, but still very good
I'm just looking for any reason to get more of them. They are overdue for a good sharpening though.
Why I've been looking to manufacture the reason. Want something better than the Farberware ones the inlaws got us years ago.
My dad has a 3 stage chef's choice sharpener and that thing is awesome.
it has made shit knives usable and good knives really great. He has old ass Chicago Cutlery stuff from 30 years a ago, even a knife my grandpa bought before I was anywhere close to alive and if you keep up on them they are sharp as hell.
Sacrifice one of your pinkies. Explain to your wife it wouldn’t have happened if you’d had a quality blade.
I was actually gonna ask for recs, so thanks for this
I was gonna ask for fathers day, but I do have an ADD policy. Wonder what the payout for a pinky would be......
I’ve had this exact same experience
They cooked it in the oven with a ton of sweet bbq sauce on it
My kids are 4 and 2. They are both pretty picky eaters. I put a full rack of ribs in the SV this afternoon to eat for dinner. I didn’t get any because my boys ate them all. This is my most proud barbecue and parenting moment.
not made by me but i think beef cheeks might be my new favorite cut. new local place doing a special as the guy running it is solo and the brisket schedule was killing him but wanted some beef option.
Pork cheeks are fucking awesome as well. Every whole hog roast I've been too I lurk around the head until the go ahead to eat is given. Scoop the cheek out with my bare hands and crawl into the bushes like Gollum to devour my prize.
fat ratio just cranked up on those cuts, had fried cod tongue (still attached to the bone, cod anatomy is weird) and had that similar super high fat content that makes the flavor insane
Never thought I'd crave cod tongue but here we are.
its a little cunty for a bbq thread but, the flowers are from horseradish
I need to know more
if you really want to say wtf click to their page and read through the story about their seafood menu
I’m just trying to wrap my head around how that is a tongue connected to a bone...
each one is only half the tongue
they also served cod bladder
I really wanna try it
