$250 for a brisket what am I missing
I’m guessing people bought it at that insane price to support his restaurant
Well I would say it could have been worse. Some parts were perfect, others did not pull apart. So prob could have left it on longer. Enough good parts for me and the Mrs. to enjoy. I’ll try again next week.
went a little too over at 800*
Was it bone in pork shoulder?
I liked every single one of the Baron live streaming posts. Took me back to my first few cooks.
I remember starting off with a 14 lb brisket. I had no fucking idea what I was doing, but it somehow worked.
No bone. My neighbor gave it to me to try out, had a bunch in his freezer. Probably a butt they cut in half then froze, that's why it was so small.
I saw a bunch of butts cut small during the earlier pandemic times when stores were having a hard time keeping shelves stocked
Whenever you want to do a long cook, get a 8-10 lb bone in pork butt. Even more forgiving than what you just cooked, the long cook time will allow more time to dial in the cooker and see what it’s like getting that thing going for 12-15 hours. Since they’re so cheap and hard to really ruin, it’s the perfect piece of meat to learn on
That might explain the uneven cooking. Unless you had it bound up with butcher twine
Bacon wrapped meatloaf
First time. Did loosely as the package only had 10 slices
I literally had just seen some bacon wrapped meatloaf at sams earlier and thought 'man, I gotta make that myself on the grill sometime'
Local grocery store had these at a damn good price $7.00. On SRF website it’s $14.00. So gourmet hamburger it is tonight!
Going to give these a try
Rack of lamb on the smoker right now
Forgot to take pics post cook, but solid burger and would fuck again. The shrinkage on those patties was more than I anticipated.
well i’m turned on and now officially having sex tonight
Just threw an 8 lb butt on. Forgot to get pics I’ll try to remember later. I love cooks like this, gives me time to myself in the middle of the night/early morning and an excuse to drink all hours
One of the primary reasons I got into bbq
When you guys are getting up at 4am are you drinking or throwing the meat on and going back to bed
When I do a long cook ahead of a tailgate/football game, I’ll drink when I throw it on before bed, wake up to check on it (if I need to) but go back to bed and then I’ll crack open a drink when in get up for good around 6
4 am start?
I'm drinking coffee and staying up, that's only a couple hours earlier than a normal day
Is B&B lump any good? Local Ace has that. I refuse to ever use Cowboy lump again. It does not burn evenly, it crackles and sparks like crazy. Worst charcoal EVER
i love it
if they have the logs, that’s my go to
cowboy is dogshit
I don’t mind it, using it now. It’s my default go to when I need to hit over 50 for my coupon. I’ll buy it 10/10 times over rockwood.
Little cheese going on the cold smoke
13ish hours at 245. Wrapped and resting in the cooler
I’m a Jealous Devil guy now
I love ribs.
You ever get around to doing it?
I think summer sausage is gunna be my next experiment
Yeah, I've had better luck cooking it in the oven than the smoker, it doesn't seem to pick up much smoke through the casing. I use about a 60/40 ratio of lean venison to pork (the pork is probably 60/40 lean to fat) and cure it in the fridge for at least 3 days. The hardest part for me is my stuffer is super shitty and it seems like if you don't get it stuffed tight (thats what she said), air pockets fill with fat as it cooks and kind of congeal on the surface of the sausage and its not an ideal texture. Cooking in the oven seems to alleviate this to a degree but if you can find a good stuffer and maybe start with small rolls at first to make it as tight as possible, it seems to help.
I more or less follow this recipe but like to experiment with different ratios and additives (jalapeños, high temp cheese). Its not very spicy, imo.
Pretty fun thing to mess around with and a good way to get rid of extra ground venison.
Setting my alarm for 3am don’t feel great about it
I’ve had more beer than I normally have
Brisket or pork butt?
Last night I was still up from the day before but I’ve done it both ways
