    Smoke Day brisket prepped and waiting.

    I just barely got the brisket on before Smoke Day ended. I have a lake out back and was enjoying some adult beverages while catfishing. I looked at my phone and it was 11:20pm :ROFLMAO:. Luckily the WSM was prepped so I got it going within 20 minutes. BbqGuru Party Q has kept her steady at 235...

    Smoke Day brisket prepped and waiting.

    Decent looking 11 pound brisket from Walmart trimmed up, rubbed down and shoehorned into a 2.5 gallon Ziploc bag until 10:00pm tonight. I had planned on doing Babybacks on the WSM today and then putting the brisket on later for overnight cook but there was rain and thunderstorm chances this...

    Better charcoal chamber?

    I am finally using the basket I got from It arrived less than a week after ordering but I haven't had time to try it out. I will say it is very heavy duty and will probably last forever and it can hold a LOT of charcoal. I'm only doing a few Spares today so I only filled it up...

    Better charcoal chamber?

    I'm not the best when it comes to remembering to cover up the WSM and it gets rained on quite often. Living near the ocean probably doesn't help either. In all honesty the charcoal chambers were probably fine to use but the rust bothered me.

    Better charcoal chamber?

    I have had to replace the charcoal ring in my 12 year old WSM twice and have bought at least 6 charcoal grates. I stumbled across this tonight because I need another charcoal ring and grate. They have a 18.5" and 22.5" one. The stainless steel charcoal grate and charcoal ring are welded...

    I wasn't talking about putting the water pan on top of the Firedial but putting a disposable foil pan on top of it to catch grease. Firedial would set on the water pan tabs with a disposable pan on top.I don't think that would cause airflow problems. I would not use the disposable pan on higher...

    I have been thinking about getting the Firedial but only because I am going to order their charcoal basket and reviews say you can't use the water pan because the basket is too high. I would probably put a foil pan on top of the Firedial for butts or brisket though...

    Holiday BBQ

    My wife told me she wasn't in the mood for ham or turkey this year. I suggested rib roast and she said "MEH". I was joking around and suggested starting a Christmas tradition of smoking baby back ribs. She said that sounded great. I picked up a 3 pack from Sam's yesterday. I can't wait :)

    I'm starting from scratch

    If you are going to use an automatic temperature control device you will not want to use water in the pan. Just foil with a air gap at the bottom so the grease doesn't burn.

    Brisket price-oh my!

    Walmart here carries them for $2.99/lb. that is still a little high for me so I only do them once or twice a year. I keep my eye out for managers specials because of a nearing sell by date.

    Warning for lump users......

    I ripped down my dad's old deck so i could build a new fence yesterday. Whoever lived there before(at least 20 years ago) put a 16" strip of expanded metal along the bottom of the fence before they built the deck. My dad said the people he bought the house from had a small dog. The metal is in...
