  • Re: What is everyone's experience doing Low and slow wings

    I smoke then fry. Smoke for about an hour at around 225-250. Then fry them. Sometimes I bread them too. Crispy and smoky! I have learned to fry outside though otherwise the house smells for days.
  • Re: Anyone try lighting a chimney starter on a side burner?

    That's all a gasser is good for. That's how I used to do it before I realized a torch was better/easier.

    @busmania Pulled pork freezes very well.  I always do two at a time, even if we're not having guests.  I'm not a big leftover fan either, but pulled pork is a different story.

    I freeze the leftovers portioned-out in several quart sized freezer bags.  a few weeks later, "Hmmmm pulled pork sammies would be good for dinner"... pull a bag outta the freezer, let it defrost, re-heat in a skillet with bbq sauce (or on my griddle).  I like to top mine with cole slaw, and a shmear of apple sauce on a pretzel roll.  

    Makes for a great weeknight dinner in a pinch.

    I do that too but honestly, I enjoy the cook more than the eating!  I never end up eating it and usually end up giving it away.  Its like classic cars.  I spend months building them and when they are done, I get bored and sell them.  brojangles, you on pt?
  • Re: Smokeware ss cap question/issue

    I remember thinking my lid was "loose" but I am not sure it was that loose.  Hard to tell though.  You may just have to get a few cooks under it and see if some of the sticky goopy stuff that the smoke leaves behind helps seal it.  I was originally concerned with shut down due to the gap but never had any problems.  ive got probably 20 cooks on mine now and don't have any issues with closing it down and the fire going out.

    re-looking at the pic, I would say that gap is normal.

  • Re: Is this a full packer brisket or just a flat?

    Thanks husker dude. I'm a cornhusker fan myself. I have seen those but will watch again while working tomorrow. I should also point out I bought this on a whim. I went to a new store for some other groceries and since they had full packers and it was the first time I ever saw a choice cut in a store around here, I bought one. They also only had two to choose from. The other was only 7.5 pounds so I picked up the heavier one.
