    Phoenix Area Meat - Reasonable Butcher?

    Not sure what part of the Valley you are in but for East Valley I use Gilbert Butchery for the non Costco cuts. I also use The Pork Shop in San Tan Valley for my Pork cuts.

Those that are using water talk about using it either because that's how the smoker was built or as a good heat sync / stabilizer. No where have I seen anyone talking...

    To water pan, clay pot base, sand? What's your pleasure

    To water pan, clay pot base, sand? What's your pleasure

    @Karl Quist , Luckily I have an older WSM with the shallow water pan, which is why the first mod I ever did on my WSM, after the vey first cook spent all night refilling the water pan, was to buy the Brinkman pan.

    Pastrami Again...

    Finished up preparing the pastrami. Sliced up the two brisket, OMG these are the best I have ever made. Only problem is I think I slightly over steamed them and the meat slices are a little too delicate and falls apart way easy. But talk about melts in your mouth. OH man mouth watering thinking...

    Pastrami Again...

    Sliced the Round Roast. I'm not overly impressed with it. Seems kinda on the dry side. But it is edible.
