    Dave, to answer some of your comments,The cook I done was for home use only, I did not do this for anyone else. The meat was not greasy at all.

    Anyone foil their brisket?

    I have done briskets, low&slow, high heat and the last time I did them the way Larry Wolf has. Larry, I must say that smoking the briskets between 260 & 280 made a hugh inpact on the flavor of the meat and the "smoke ring". I foiled them when they reached 165* (about 4 hours) and then foiled...

    Do you trim your pork spares to St. louis or not

    I only trim if doing for myself. When doing them for a customer, I will do the whole spare, thats what they are paying for the whole spare. And it cuts down on prep time when doing a lot of ribs. I have a order for 25 slabs for next month, I got 3 WSM so all I have to do is take off the membrane...

    Spare Rib Timing

    I do my spares at 250* lid temp. from anywhere from 4 to 5 hours. I test them with the "bend test" and when a rib bone will pull from the other bone with a little rsistence but not fall out or off the bone. Or if I am in a crunch for time, like yesterday I did the 3-1-1, cook 3 hrs on smoker, 1...
