  • Re: Beef ribs (first attempt)

    I only remove the membrane on Beef back ribs and don't do it on Plate or Short ribs. I have found that removing the membrane on these will sometimes make the ribs fall apart.  It's also a lot easier to prepare them if you don't have to do that step.
  • Re: Big Brisket

     I once cooked a 20 lb one on my large. Draped it over a V Rack until it shrunk up a bit during cooking.  Others have used bricks wrapped in foil.
  • Re: "FoodSaver" type bag source?

    I buy mine from Amazon - the brand I like are called "foodvacbags"
  • Re: New Lighting Method- Better Burn

    I've been trying my old chimney recently.  I used to just use alcohol directly on the charcoal but that took a while to come up to temperature, so I have now loaded up the chimney, sprayed some alcohol in the middle of the egg and put the chimney on top of it and tossed a match through the holes in the chimney at the bottom. In about 10 minutes the area under the chimney is glowing and I dump the charcoal and spread it around.  Very fast and it seems to burn off the VOCs quickly also.
  • Re: Spatchcock Charring

    I used to have that same problem and solved it by cooking spatchcock chickens indirect at around 400 degrees.
