    some 'between jobs' smoking!! - pork butt

    I think that while I was busy doing the "craigslist shuffle", I came upon a 18 kettle that had this hinged grate. I think I swapped them and passed the kettle along. That hinge is handy when you want to check a temp downstairs.

    Hello from San Diego -not soo crazy after all

    Hi Daryl. Nice meeting you yesterday. I am glad my performer went to a member. And my wife thanks you for helping us clear some space in the backyard. Now she feels better about the open space, and I'm looking for a new refurb project. Maybe an old genesis 1000? Welcome to the forums! -Gabe

    Getting ready for cold weather in Indiana!

    Jason, welcome aboard, sir. It sounds like you are already off to a good start with your cabinet. Is it insulated? remember to account for temp loss due to exterior cold by adding some extra charcoal to the wsm. You def don't want to be caught running out of charcoal before your brisket is done!

    First (and Second) Cook

    Hi Ron. welcome aboard. Last week, I had my temps jump on me. What I did wrong was when I went to foil the ribs after 2 hrs, I wrapped three racks and the whole time I had the lid off/open and in the few minutes it took to spray/season/wrap three racks, the fire got more air than I was wanting...

Based on what I tasted yesterday at the Santee Comp, I am definitely going to visit their restaurant. If their restaurant brisket/ribs/chicken/pork is as good as their comp stuff...

    Best way to reheat brisket?

    I do like Bill does except for one diff: I use my crock pot half-filled with water and set to 'warm'. Without the lid, it is stable at 140 degrees. Put the sealed bag in and wait. This way, the meat can't get any hotter than 140, so there's no chance of overcooking it when you are just trying to...
