    The Humor Thread

    Cheap wine, Gallo “Flambeau” was the one that really made me understand seeing my heels come though my mouth! Church canoe trip, enough shared! After that, I started drinking “real” booze, the following year, I made friends with Jack, Jim and, Johnny! We had a rocky start but, we learned where...

    Finally got mine.

    Sadly, it looks like the long cold winter will be getting here faster than expected, 82 today Tuesday maybe 60! Poo! Of course that does not mean any equipment will go unused but, it may be things which I can protect some. Just saw the latest weather, 56 as a high for next Saturday! Crap in a hat!

    Pork butt

    I agree with Lew, the window for excellence is smaller and you have to be watchful when temperatures get close, then a wrap and into a cooler let them rest for an hour or so. I'm finding the 195 range to be really reliable +/- a couple of degrees.

    YEAH, Bruno! After I eat myself silly with Case, I’m coming to your place!

    First brisket, minimal fat cap

    I’d go fat cap down, salt and pepper, no injection, no wrapping. But, that’s just me!

    WSM Options

    That’s a tough one, I am pleased with my “workhorse” Overperformer, The Genny and the 18” WSM, they all have their strong points, tomorrow I will probably go for the 22” end of the Overperformer and the gasser Vortex some wings on the kettle and do burgers on the gasser. If you are not really...

    emergency horseradish sauce could be my new standard

    An old friend of mine used to, he said he had planted a bit in his back yard and it just went crazy! He used to tell me that he’d go out to his picnic table and grind away with tears rolling down his face ! That was the best horseradish I’ve ever had, in my entire life to date! I really miss...

    Finally got mine.

    I never think much about game hens, I should. They would go a little quicker than chicken and sometimes I’m short on time! My sisters old boyfriend made me posole once, he was a terrible cook! His had no “gumption” at all, he was always kind of a bland eater. He lapped it up like there was no...

    Wood chunks - How many?

    I think cherry is more delicate than apple and apple is pretty light. My last brisket, I used the Harry Soo method putting the chunks on the bottom, I was very pleased with the result.
