<p />A 5.5 lb. prime flat. Coated with a mixture of one part Dizzy Pig Cow Lick Rub and one part Cap'ns Rub and doubled in volume with brown sugar. Smoked at 250-270 for 9 1/2 hours with Royal Oak lump and a couple chunks of hickory. [p]After all that traditional Christmas fare, I needed some bbq.

    <p />char buddy, this photo is for you.[p]WD
  • WooDoggies,[p]Dude, how do you get that obscene red smoke ring. There's some states you can get arrested for showing a thing like that.

    WooDoggies,[p]C'mon now, is that the best you can do? hehehe[p]Honestly, this is one of the finest looking pieces of meat I've ever seen! You are breaking my heart.[p]My I humbly suggest altering the resolution of your images to 72dpi and resize to 8" width? Even with broadband, it took a long time to suck this pic down.[p]K~G

    WooDoggies,[p]WOW! That is one fine looking hunk of cow....Now you've got me wanting to try another one![p]Happy Holidays,
    :~)[p]BTW, did you end up with a white Christmas? It sure is pretty country in your neck of the woods when you wake up in the morning and find it covered with white...

  • KennyGKennyG Posts: 949
    <p />QBabe,[p]It might be pretty, but still an unnecessary freezing of water in my opinion.[p]Mother Nature dropped about 8" on us just in time for Xmas day so I guess I can't complain. Now, if she would just make it go away. [p]The old Egg/party deck is a lonely place at this time of year. Even with Humpty's "laugh at the weather" cooking characteristics, I prefer to keep him and friends in the garage and do my cooking out of the elements.[p]K~G

    KennyG,[p]Thanks Kenny and sorry y'all about the image size :~)... I'm using an older digicam with 3 settings for resolution. The lowest setting didn't capture enough detail and the middle setting coupled with macro gave you this monster image but with the detail I wanted... haven't even started to figure out how to first manipulate images with adobe photoshop.
    Hey, I'm just happy I can post a photo!
    On my phone modem it took about 20 seconds to open up that post. How long does it take with your broadband?[p]Brisket for lunch![p]John[p][p]

    Hi Tonia,[p]Yes, here in your old stomping grounds we had a white Christmas and it was very very pretty.... it really felt like Christmas with the rolling hills, woods and farms covered in snow.
    My arm is sore from throwing snowballs and my sides from laughing so hard.... nothing like the sting of getting womped in the side of the head with a tightly packed snowball thrown by a 4 year old who has an arm like a Yankee's pitcher.
    Hope yours was great![p]John

  • WooDoggies,
    Looks to me like you've just about got the hang of ceramic cooking. I'll bet it tastes as good as it looks.[p]Happy New Year[p]Spring Chicken

    Yes.  I own a blue egg!  Call Atlanta if you don't believe me!

    <p />WooDoggies,[p]How about this size? Check out the free program, IrfanView, at the link below. It makes it very easy to resize photos. Just open a picture, go to Image, Resize, and click on 640x480. Then save the photo to a different directory so that you will have the original size and the smaller size. I learned about this program from somebody on the Kamado forum. It couldn't be easier. Now I take all my photos at the highest resolution, and then use this program to resize them if I want to post to a web site.[p]Pout

    Good info. A program like that is very handy. I have been using photoshop for about 15 years and find it indispensible for working with images.[p]Some things to keep in mind. An image that is shot at the final desired resolution will have better detail than one that is shot at a higher resolution and resized. You program decides which pixels to throw away (or add) when you resize, and there are many interpolation methods. Some work better than others, but the bottom line is that with each resizing you loose some image quality. [p]Happy new year to yall!
