I started yesterday evening with the Rib Eyes marinated (see yesterday's post if you are interested and didn't see them) then put on two butts and cooked them all night. Took them off and put on two spatch cocked chickens, pulled them and did 4 links of sausage, sorry no picture then put the brisket on. It's all vacuum packed (except the brisket that's still cooking. All to go the Texas Hill country to meet my 3 brothers and their families for a long over due get together. Should be good.

Here are the butts cooking.


Here is the pulled pork.

Here is the chicken before.


Here is the chicken after.


Now for the brisket, still cooking for a few more hours.

    Need to really watch out for “Mr. No shoulders” in them hills. We are killing them places we have never seen them before and as dry as it is, water is really drawing them in.
    Wish I could get to the hills this weekend but it is not to be. Popsicle

  • I turned the Guru down to 200 when about 11 PM last night when the meat was at 178, this morning it was 190. I haven't left one on the BGE this long but it's in a cookin bag with a can of beef broth and in a cooler wrapped in towels. I will try to post some pictures of it plated Sunday when we get back. It should be interesting. Not to worry about the brisket, they can eat pulled pork and the other stuff.
  • Results on Sunday when we get back.
