Great bbq video......

Not to add more confusion to the brisket controversy but @lakewade sent me this last night. It's an awesome video from Robert Rodriguez (the movie director from Austin) on how to do TX Q. I don't do it this way but I'm trying his beef ribs for sure. Hell, I'll probably try the brisket too (with more salt) Enjoy (It does have some PG 13 language so if you aren't into that, don't watch it) .

    I'm new here in BGE land and have never cooked a brisket so I'm not sure of the method's success but this is a GREAT Video!

    I'm always suspect when people say to cook by time and not temp but I thought the video was too good not to share.

    He created Sharkboy and Lavagirl. I will blindly follow anything that his mind thinks up. Guaranteed good time.

    Ha! I didn't watch that far. I would say if you are offended by F-Bombs, turn it off right after the cooking part. wow.

    yep. I cook that high sometimes. I've found better results around 250-275 but I'm not afraid of 300. 325 is where you really need to wrap to protect the bark. Franklin cooks at 325. Most restaurants have to in order to get food out for service

    325? That's the hipster thing to do. I bet he rides a fixie to work.

    So I did a modified version of this cook yesterday for fun. The paper really speeds up the cook, just like foil
    Would. They were good but a little overdone on the brisket. Still very tasty though. The bark was really nice. Kind of sticky bit still firm. Might try again just for kicks. Ribs were just salt and pepper. Really good and super easy. These were chuck ribs which I was told by the butcher are just short ribs left on the long bone. I have not confirmed it but they seemed to be the right cut. Really beefy and good. Not many pics cuz I was "over served" yesterday afternoon. My son was actually laughing at me #fatheroftheyear

    Now that right there is the worst en papillote folding I have ever seen. You should get some duct tape.

    Then duct tape would not have been a good idea then.

    I could have used it for me as well. I was coming apart at the seams. I don't recall being too drunk to eat before...........

    That's what I did (although i was cooking at 280-300 dome). no reason you couldn't do it at any temp. Definitely speeds up the cook.

    CT - Didn't the guy in the video used waxed butcher paper? I thought Franklin used non-waxed? Is there a difference? If so, which one did you use?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    yes- good eye. I used non-waxed a la Franklin.

    I can't see using waxed. may as well use foil in my mind.

    I would have thought that the wax would melt? Maybe not.
