    Travis the undisputed "Brisket King" needs to go to the BBQ competition forum at and shows the guys how to smoke a brisket. I'm sure they will get a big kick of it.
    I don't recall seeing any of your cooks.  Do you even own an Egg?  Will your Mom let you cook on a fire, unattended? Why do you have to be so arrogant, and then accuse others of the same?  

    Either post one of your great cooks or image 
  • Re: Is the Guru worth the money

    I'd say it depends on how many "low and slow" cooks you do.  I have a Stoker, and have had it for about 3 years.  I'm glad I have it, but if it broke and I had to buy a new one, I probably wouldn't.  That's because I only use it on briskets (20+ hour cooks) and I don't do that but about twice a year. It's hard to justify that kind of cost.  

    I could hire Mickey to stay up all night with the brisket for a lot cheaper.

  • Re: to sear prime rib first or last

    I cooked mine (indirect) at 370° until in I.T. of 130°. I didn't think it needed a sear.

  • Re: Ham tips.....

    As with many great inventions, Mickey stumbled on his success with a Naked Ham by accident.  He started out wanting to cook a ham naked, but after 10 shots of Tito Vodka and the screaming from the neighbors to put some clothes on, he got confused and cooked a Naked Ham instead.  The rest is history.

    Whew !  From the title, I thought another dog had died.  This is much happier.
