    This weekend I hope to dive head first into this thing: spatchcock chicken, beef brisket, and baby back ribs. I know I'll learn a lot but still I hope there's some edible food in there.

    Just cooked a fattie this evening.

    I picked up a 14 lb whole brisket so I'll be cooking that Sunday (maybe Monday, we'll see how the schedule shapes up) and I might do a rack or two of Thai glazed babyback ribs if we feel like we want that.

    Every time my elbow bends my mouth flies open.
