Had my first cook on it yesterday, just a little beef roast. Started with a full chimney of mostly lit charcoal, put some...

    Whole packer corned Brisket

    Was at my local Shamrock foods store and saw full packer corned beef briskets and had to have one!😊 Used the little seasoning packet that came with it and added a rub of my own. On the 22.5"wsm she went. I removed the water pan and was gunning for 325-350° for the cook. I didn't add any smoke...

    Smoked a brisket for this weekend and had plenty of leftovers. The wife cooked up some mac and cheese so I thought I'd add some brisket to it. Drizzled on some sweet n spicy bbq sauce, and a little bit of Bad Byron's Butt Rub. It was really good! I could eat that all day long. thx for looking!

    Sweet Craigslist Score!!

    Picked up my first offset smoker last Monday. A Lang model 84 deluxe. Got it off of Craigslist for $2600. Needs some tlc, but still a good deal. The guy i got it from had it for about 12yrs and I don't think that he ever cleaned it! I spent over 2hrs scraping 40lbs of crap out of the cooking...

    Using the 22.5"wsm like a stick burner.

    I don't have a offset smoker and have always wanted to try smoking over wood. So i tried this method with pizza and it works great so I thought why not with ribs? So here's the set up: BB ribs with Bad Byron's Butt Rub, drip pan underneath, and I used pecan wood for smoke/fuel. Was going...

    Kingsford's new formula

    It seems to me that the new bags of kbb really smoke up a lot when starting my wsm minion method. I've tried putting the lid on and waiting till the smoke clears, but it just keeps smoking like crazy till all the coals are engaged. didn't the old stuff clear up after a little while?

    I think I'm converted to No Water!

    I've done waterless cooks before, but not very many. Lately I've been doing waterless cooks and really like the results. I love that i have a much higher temperature range available to me without the water. Today I did spares at 275° in my 18"wsm and it ran like a champ! No problem holding temp...
