  • Put your temp probe in it and watch the temp while it's in the cooler. Once it goes below 140, you've got about 4 hours left to serve. Make your decision from there. If it goes below 140 before 1pm, put it in the oven, wrapped up, at the lowest…
  • I've had a search running on eBay for more than a year. Only once did something viable come available, and that was 7 hours away. I didn't make the trip. fc

  • NC-CDN wrote: Then she comes over an hour later...."Is it done yet?" LOL. Sorry. Not yet. Thankfully, after three years, she knows it's done when it's done! Just put the brisket on a little while ago. It's a small flat; shouldn't take…

  • What was I thinking?!?! Your right. :laugh: :P :silly: :laugh:
  • Zip, You never seem to disappoint...they look great! I'm thinking next weekend, for Mom's day, would be a great time to give that a try. fc

  • I agreed with you Jeff, but my better half decided to put'em back in the fridge...she got up at 4am to hide them. Now we're just waiting for the kids to wake up :unsure: fc
  • The bird came out really good. Sorry, no pics. It was the first time I've ever brined a chicken, but it won't be the last. I'll have to remember to brine some pork chops the next time. fc
  • I'm doing one right now. Simple brine of 1/3 c kosher salt, 1/3 c brown sugar, 2 Tbs dizzy pig raging river....enough water to fill a gallon ziplock and the bird. Brined about six hours. On the medium now, spatchcocked, direct, raised grid at 300 …
  • Nice lookin' meal, Mike. Absolutely Fresh does have good seafood, but definitely pay for the freshness. I go by to pick up oysters every once in a while. Where are you in Omaha? Wouldn't it be great if we could get a fest goin'? fc

  • Thanks Rebecca, that's kind of how I ended up making the pastrami. I was at costco, and they had the corned beef brisket flats out for St. Patty's me thinking that I hadn't made pastrami in a while. The first sammy was great! fc

  • I've done these: here's some pics, too: They were really good! fc
