What are you cooking this upcoming long weekend here in the States?

I have a shank thawing and I just cut the knuckle off it so that it will stand up.  Thor's hammer sammiches incoming!

    The cook wins on presentation and is great "pulled beef" but it is quite a protracted cook, at least when I have ventured down that road.  Regardless, sweet eats await.

    Late to catch up with this thread but @Langner91 you deserve an award for persistence.  I hope your beer locker was sufficiently stocked for that run.  Great outcome right there but man what an undertaking.

    @JohnInCarolina the dishwasher did very well.  Looks like it retains moisture or do you use a water pan as I always run with one in the stick burner due to the high air-flow.

    Did 2 butts yesterday:   One for us and one for the neighbors.   No pics as butts are pedestrian nowadays.

    I Iove pedestrian butts, it's the only reason I keep my first floor blinds open. Yesterday I saw one that was right up my alley, it looked like it was experienced and could take a gutter ball or two.

    Thanks for the comments @lousubcap .  It was a marathon, but I have learned three things:
    1. There is enough fat and collagen that it would hold up to higher temps. This should shave a couple of hours.
    2. I will foil sooner and start the "braise" portion similar to PSB.  This should shave another couple of hours.
    3. I won't french the bone on the next one if I am not going for presentation points.  I will just cook the shank in a foil pan and enjoy the extra meat.

    Great cooks all around!  I hope you all enjoyed the day.

    I haven’t used a water pan in it yet, Frank.  Haven’t noticed anything drying out in it except for ribs cooked straight - those will definitely dry out if they’re in for too long.

    No idea. I picked up two 40lb boxes of leg quarters.
    I did make a breast for Mrs.C on the minimax, she doesn't like leg quarters.
