    Costco - Japanese BBQ Sauce

    I tried both the regular and spicy versions. I did not like at all. Threw them both away. I thought they had a distinct off flavor, almost chemically aftertaste.

    Double fire BBQ?

    A local (great) BBQ place was just reviewed in our local weekly The Metro Times (Shark’s BBQ, 4845 Rochester Rd., Troy, MI) - his pulled pork and brisket are BY FAR the best in town - he said that one secret is that he smokes for 6 hours, pulls them off, puts in fridge overnight and then back in...

    Michigan > Shelby Township: Bad Brad's BBQ

    Some of the best BBQ in the Detroit area I think. Their version of burnt ends is called chopped brisket, excellent smokey flavor. For beans, try Zekes Rock and Roll BBQ in Ferndale.

    Bacon curing temperature question

    Found out that fridge door was open a smidge I assume for the 3 days I had put the bacon into cure (I forgot to turn on day 2). Using one sweet and one savory recipe in Carcuterie. Laser temp showed surface about 42 degrees. Question is whether to toss or continue. I see recipes for curing meats...

    Vortex for kettles

    I decided to get one. I've used it for beer can chicken and it worked absolutely great....was really one of the best chickens I've ever made. Now trying as a smoker using the snake method. Holding firm at 250 smoking a small butt. So far I'm impressed.

    Prime Brisket

    FYI I went by Gordon Food Service and they had USDA Choice whole packers as a new item and I think they were $3.09...great price since recently they have been VERY expensive.

    Prime Brisket

    A packer brisket is both the point and flat. I think that the term "brisket" can refer to the packer as well as the individual parts. I don't think I've ever seen the point sold separately, just the whole packer or the flat.

    Prime Brisket

    Went to Costco and scored a USDA Prime packer...I'd seen other prime meats there but never brisket $3.79/lb I thought it was a steal. Rubbed with S&P plus a bit of chilies, garlic/onion powder, cumin. Did an overnight smoke, mostly 250-275, wrapped in butcher paper at 170...

    Frango Piri-piri

    This. Is. Awesome. Was walking by a spice guy at the local Farmer's Market and saw that he had dried African Birdseye peppers and I thought "Hmmmm.....I think I remember reading someplace that these are the same as piri-piri peppers" and I remembered reading this forward, just...
