  • Re: Kick-ash basket failure

    Looking at the pic I think the issue may have been too many big pieces.  The lump burned under those and the fire wasnt in contact.  I would break up the bigger pieces so that they fill the empty space better. 
  • Re: Finally solved my brisket issues with a sous vide

    I am glad to hear it worked out for you.  That is interesting that it got from 140-194 in only 2 hours. I am guessing it might be the extended time in sous vide broke down the fat/collagen so there wasn't a stall.  My last brisket spent 3-4 hours between 160-170 IT cooking at 250. 
  • Re: Firecraft

    I like the improvements but I think the price increase is out of line with the added consumer value. The hinge looks cool- but I sure as hell don't want to pay $200 more for it. 
  • Re: Stretching BBQ/Quick BBQ

    One thought is you could have someone on standby to make a run to Costco or the grocery store to pick up something that cooks quickly like sausages, hot dogs, burgers, etc.  For the BBQ theme I think sausage works well. 
  • Re: Brisket Chili

    I love everything about this post. Some brisket chili and a nice stout are calling me!
