  • Brisket at Costco - couple questions

    I stopped by Costco today and saw they had a whole section of prime packers and flats.  I was thinking the price was good, so I picked up two whole packers - one to smoke this weekend and one to freeze for a later smoke.  My first question is how long do you think I can keep the one frozen packaged as it is?  Next, should I have any different expectations when smoking a thawed out  brisket?

    Also, it's been a long time since a bought a brisket - is $2.99 per lb a good price for prime?


  • My version of a raised grid.

    I need to give thanks for someone's post on this forum about how to make your own raised grid. Below is a picture of mine. Today I bought a grid the diameter I thought would fit in my dome, and then used 4 6" bolts, 12 washers and 12 nuts. Two washers and 1 nut secure each bolt to the top grid. Then near the bottom of each bolt 2 bolts secure one washer to serve as the foot resting on the lower grid. I haven't used it yet, but it seems to be sturdy, and is easily removed anytime during the cook. Hopefully I'll be as pleased once I use it. Thanks again to whoever shared the idea!
