    Long time listener, first time caller. First time smoker purchase should I go BGE or Primo?

    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.

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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
