    Do you have a "MAKE SOON" list/folder/binder?

    Case in point the other day, I finally made some chimichurri to go with some steaks I grilled for the family and they were like holy smokes, you need to do this a lot more often. I had just never gotten around to it, but with a response like that, it will have to become a regular occurrence...

    Good books on smoking

    I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I read a sad depressed mood as they were lamenting the loss of true bbq around the south. However, from what I experience daily, here on this forum, at comps, and with our local restaurant scene, it seems quite the opposite. True bbq is alive an possibly...

    Good books on smoking

    Start with Low and Slow for technique, Smokestack Lightning for discussion of BBQ but not how to, and then Paul Kirk's books and Peace, Love, and BBQ for combination of the two. Legends of Texas BBQ for the history if not for a recipe or two. That should get you started. Like I do with most...

    Another EZ Que vs. Weber Post

    I've searched and read most of the EZ Que vs. Weber postings. It seems that the EZ Que is a better product. Unfortunately, the 8 inch isn't available on their site. It could be argued and likely will be until the end of time the benefits of the EZ Que over the Weber, although the Weber...

    Weber Rotisseire VS EZ Que

    Until I showed my wife this post, she really thought I was the only one goofy enough to set up a craigslist aggregator for a rotisserie...I'm not sure she's happy to know I'm not alone in the world, but I am. I'm thinking of getting a rotisserie this week, I'm debating between the Weber or the...

    Pork butt and ribs link?

    I'm considering cooking a 6.5 pound butt and two racks of ribs. I was going to set the butt on an overnight course...I'm wondering what others experience has been in terms of adding the ribs...specifically at what point did you add the ribs? How much fuel did you need? et cetera. I'm using...

    HELP...brisket hangs in the balance

    Here's the setup... 1. Remote therm says internal temp on a 3.2 lbs brisket is 175 2. WSM temp has been steady at 250 for 4.5 hours. 3. Don't have another therm to stick in the brisket Should I fall on the side of mathematics or remote therm and trust my instincts and take the brisket off?
