    Hellrazr Outdoor Cooking

    Has anybody had any experience with these BBQs. They just popped across my Facebook feed today. I took a look at some of the stuff they offer and its very interesting. Innovative designs and some out of the box thinking. On the downside very costly. For example $200 for the INCINARATOR...

    Aggressive Brisket Trim.

    Usually when I decide to smoke a brisket I put in an order at my local butcher (Real Deal Meats for any Edmontonian) a few days in advance and pick it up the morning I am smoking it. This summer I had the plan but life happened and the brisket landed in the freezer. Feeling a "hankering" for...

    Short Ribs and Chili

    A week ago Sunday I smoked 2 plates of Short Ribs for dinner, with the intent of having leftovers for chili. Ribs turned out great and I had 2 pounds leftover. This past Saturday with the weather being nice and to avoid my wife reminding me about the smell that steeped chili peppers sends...

    Got a chuckle when visiting new BBQ store.

    I have been searching for a place local or online to purchase Furtado Farms smoking wood (Wellesley, Ontario, Canada) for a while now. My usual online source for BBQ accessories and stuff (Dicskson BBQ Centre) carries it but does not ship Charcoal or Wood. I am assuming the shipping costs...

    Trimmings

    I had spare ribs a couple weeks ago. I picked up 2 racks untrimmed from the butcher. I trimmed them down to a STL cut which left me with a pile of meat bone a cartilage. Last week was brisket that I trimmed up. I could have gone alot more aggressively with the trim to make it even and save on...

    Soot in a clean BBQ

    Hello All. I spent a Saturday a couple of weeks ago cleaning my Weber Genesis. Took the grates, flavorizer bars and the covers in the bottom of the BBQ out. I scrubbed it as clean as I could get it using some degreaser and soap and water. I put everything back together and have done lots of...

    Full Packer Brisket Problems

    I have done a few Briskets in the past and they have turned out good, not "Oh my gosh this is amazing" just good. So I had a 16lb Brisket in my freezer and decided today was the day to try another. After it had thawed I trimmed it up, added salt and freshly ground pepper and let it sit while...

    Smoking at a Beaver Camp Thanks to the TVWBB

    Hello All I recently organized a Beaver Camp (Scouts Canada) for 15, 5-7 year olds and their parents. It has taken me a few years to convince others in my group that camp food did not have to be roasted hot dogs all the time. Last year at our spring camp I smoked 5 chickens which turned out...

So I went to a local butcher supply store and explained that I am smoking a brisket and need pink butcher paper to wrap the brisket in and return it to the smoker. I was...
