  • @Stidrvr  I think I may build this table this weekend.  Other than lowering the bottom shelf, anything you would have done different?
  • @Kempy‌... I used to hunt pheasants in Nebraska with a dude that had a dog that could've been his twin (was real good pointer, flushed birds and would happily retrieve a bird out of the thickets). Also used to hunt with several different Labs and a …
  • In addition to the rescue dog I my profile picture, I've got this 5 month lot french brittany.
  • Your team played well. Congrats from a disappointed broncos fan.
  • Mattman3969 said: The smoke ring is redonkulous!!! Looks really good. Yes.  This was by far my best brisket.  It somewhat made up for the poor performance by the Broncos tonight.
  • The brisket was a huge success!  Everybody was very impressed.  Here it is sliced.
  • Mine has been on for 4 1/2 now.  IT is at 190.  It weighed a little over 5 pounds when I put it on.
  • Early afternoon update.  IT is 182.  Looks and smells amazing.  My first attempt at using Jack Daniels wood chips.  I'm really liking the smoke they produce. My helper has been enjoying the cook, but she needed a break.
  • Lit said: Great now I have to drink. Thanks for the idea.  This Superbowl party might get out of hand.  Omaha...Omaha Go Broncos!

  • henapple said: Don't stop at any temp...pull when it's really tender. That might be 206. . Yes.  I should have said I will start checking around 195.
  • cazzy said: Niiice! So if I get this right, you're cooking for his party and your party? If so, you're a better friend than I am lol No, I'm going to his party.  The brisket is his contribution, the meatballs are mine. Up to 176 deg…
  • SmokinOutBack said: Nice looking flat and that doggie is a cutie! Thanks.  Every year a group of us go in and buy some cows.  I get a quarter every year.  This year we switched ranchers and butchers.  We are very pleased with the resul…
  • swmbo would have given me a second egg but I decided on this little lady.
  • Took a quick pic before I left for the draft. Sorry about the poor pic quality. I will say I had rave reviews and they were the first item eaten.
  • Nailed it!  Looks great.
  • hapster said: Should be fine... I'd eat 'em Thanks.  That's what I figured.  Pictures later if I have time.  Just took them out of the marinade and put them on the skewers and they smell amazing.
  • I've infused them with vodka. Makes great Bloody Mary's.
  • They turned out pretty good.  It could have used some more peppers to really get that heat, but overall I'm pleased. Here are a couple of pictures of the final product.
  • Almost forgot to take a picture but tonight's wings were amazing. The best I've made to date, maybe the best I've had. Really crispy. The low and slow have some work to do to top these.
  • Thanks for the ideas. I think I will try the low and slow wings. I'm making a batch tonight at a higher temp (raised direct) using the same recipe as I will use tomorrow. It will be interesting to see which one I prefer.
  • When I was 18 I sat on a jury and liked the experience. Now I'm a trial attorney and I can tell you the attorneys and judge do appreciate the sacrifice jurors make. And remember, if you try to get out of jury duty for some bs reason, you forfit the …
  • GA_Dawgs said: Thermapen hands down. I assume that's what everyone else will say too. Red is the fastest also +1
  • I have heard of people using empty beer cans. Soda can will work too just not as fun.
  • When I decided to enter this throw down, I knew that I would need to think outside the box to be competitive with all the good cooks on the forum.  That being said, let me introduce you to Kempy's Red Chicken Enchiladas.  I started out by grilling …
  • henapple said: Muratic acid? I would think that this would work.  Just be careful on handling.  And if it were me, I would probably try this or CLR.  You may also want to check out Purple Power.  I've never used on pavers, but have a…
  • I just use this.  I have the best smelling golf umbrella on the course.
  • @rebellab wtf? I find out on this forum you are leaving? I suggest you leave the BGE here in town. You can store it on my deck next to mine. I'm going to miss you hosting the fantasy football party every year, but wish you the best of luck.
