    What to do with some of Arby's Sauce?

    I thought about the white sauce using the Horsey sauce and I have the cookbook so I may try that. The three pepper sauce is not the Arby's sauce (should have titled the thread differently) and I don't think it's available nation wide. On the nutritional page on the website it's listed on the...

    What to do with some of Arby's Sauce?

    I have some friends who are co-owners of the local Arbys. Due to some "technical" issues at times they give me various items. Mostly it's ketchup (1.5 gal at a time) which I use in many of my sauces but in the last week I was given 1.5 gal each of the Horsey sauce and Three Pepper Sauce...

    Winter smoking

    Like Mike I cook year around. I live a little northwest of him and it gets a little colder here. The only difference is I will go through more fuel which only really affects overnight cooks. I use wind breaks year round, three sided and no top until winter when I use four sides and a top...

    Dry aging my first Ribeye

    Johnson still have temp swings, 3-4 degrees. I use them in keggerators as the temp swing don't bug me and the keg mass produces little temp change anyway. For fermentation I use a Ranco. You can dial it in to 1 degree increments. I get mine from here...

    Friendly reminder to remove ash from charcoal ring...

    I don't always clean out the ash from the bottom, depends on length of previous cooks, if I used lump or charcoal, etc but always stir the old fuel to clean off the ash before putting fresh on.

    Competition Plan

    Sorry for the confusion. The ribs do go on while the brisket is still on. Do a couple of practice runs if you can, maybe trying a couple of different combinations. My reason for the butt/chicken and brisket/rib combinations is smoker size.

    Competition Plan

    Ribs I go around 5.5-6 hours (St Louis style spares) depending on trim weight, brisket I plan on 2hrs hold, pull at 191-192 to foil then hold. I also do burnt ends with the ribs. I usually do 3 racks of ribs and 2 briskets.
