Greetings friends,

one of my best friends and an old college roommate is in town with his wife and kids. Good times. Why not smoke a brisket?


the pics will come as we go...


super floppy prime costco. Had a little trouble stabilizing egg temps. Again. Weird. Cherry and hickory 250°

  • Love the floppy brisket, CGW swing grate and wine selection (not to mention Buffalo Trace) on hand. Looks like fun times are ahead.

  • Btw, what have you got aging in that little cask?

  • lousubcaplousubcap Posts: 19,313

    Regarding Buffalo Trace; the local Total Wine (a big box adult beverage operation) store does not have any Buffalo Trace on the shelves (never mind any of their other high-end bourbons). I will visit a few small shops on Sat to check their stock. But it definitely looks like the closer to the source the more scarce the juice. Exports both domestic and international are where the $$ are.

    Apologize for the partial hi-jack as that brisket looks loose enough for...

    Enjoy the cook and follow-on festivities.

    I can’t remember what bourbon is in there. It was a good one. Not a crappy one... I’m a little disturbed that I can’t remember...

    Adding — it was a 12 hour rest in an FTC. really pushed it. Everyone decided we weren’t hungry yet and we went and did an escape room breakout (the museum one). We didn’t breakout. It by a long shot lol


    engel cooler is amazing. I recommend it to everyone.

    What a great outcome right there. Congrats on the entire evening. Sounds like your guests were appropriately impressed. Nothing like delivering the goods when the pressure is on.

    What kind of cooler (guessing one of the high-end ones) do you have that you got away with 12 hours without the temp dipping too low?

  • MaskedMarvelMaskedMarvel Posts: 2,565

    Engel 30 qt. Heated with hot water first. Hot towels from the dryer filled up remaining space.
