    You definitely do have a problem - a few of those jars seem to be getting a bit low.  Better work on that.

    Thanks all - I'm happier with it today as I have it for lunch.  I just realized I'm cutting through the slices with a flimsy cheap plastic fork.


  • Re: Food saver?

    I just picked up the V3820 at Sam's.  It seems pretty solid and can do big bags as well.  It's bigger than I thought it would be.  Whatever you get, make sure it's got the accessory ability (maybe they all do).  There's an accessory ($10) that's a jar sealer and lets you pull a seal on mason jars.


  • Finally did a brisket

    All my cooks had been fairly short before this attempt.  I had a 5.5# CAB choice flat from Edwards. The rub was 2 parts coarse black pepper, 2 parts kosher salt, and 1 part granulated garlic.  I used Ozark Oak mixed with four good sized hickory chunks on an LBGE.  Platesetter was legs up and had a drip pan with some apple juice.

    Time and grate/meat temps were
    8:15     255   61 (start)
    9:15     264 133
    10:15   259 156
    11:15   270 163
    12:15   268 171
    1:15     262 172
    2:15     257 178
    3:15     261 194
    4:30     270 203
    pulled to FTC at 4:30 and sliced at 5:45

    It came out alright, and pretty moist, but seemed a bit salty.  However, it disappeared quickly.  I'll have to hunt down some Byron's for the next one. I also think I'd pull it a few degrees sooner next time.

    I also got a chance to use my new FoodSaver v3820.  It worked very well.
