    I've had it look similar, but still had only minimal chips and dust when I burned through the bag.  Open the worst looking bag first, and then see how the contents are.
    Luckily the worst bag was already opened :-)  I dumped it into a bin and will use the bigger pieces from that bag first. 
  • Re: What Butcher paper does Aaron Franklin use for brisket?

    He uses 18" pink butcher paper from ABCO in Austin. It's plain paper with no coating of any kind. Grease soaks through it almost instantly.
  • Re: Cooler Recommendation?

    You can FTC with any regular cooler, doesn't have to be a Yeti.  Preheat the cooler with hot tap water and you'll be fine.

    Now, if you need to keep ice for extended fishing or hunting trips then that's a whole different conversation.  But FTC will work in whatever cooler you can fit the food in.
  • Re: DIY 2/3 tier swing grate for under $20- Instructions & parts

    . The fix is simple. Buy a 1/2" stainless steel rod & SS nuts. That should solve the problem.
    You should only switch one piece to SS or you'll have to deal with the threads galling and seizing up.
  • Re: Wrapped butt in cooler question

    If you're trying to go longer than 2-3 hrs definitely preheat the cooler with hot water. You can also warm a couple bricks in the egg during the last hour of the cook and toss them in the cooler with the meat. Just wrap them in a towel so they don't melt the cooler.

    Edit- Just read Whiz's page. He's got a great write-up.
