I stopped by a local store and bought something for supper. I started late but it came out great.
 
Sausage stuffed pork chops and garlic stuffed turkey wings.

I added my BBQ rub for that extra flavor

Smoked them for 2 hours then wrapped the turkey wings in foil with butter and put the chops in a half pan with butter and a little water to finish them off.

75 minutes later and it's time to eat.

I also smoked some of the boudin I made yesterday and snacked on that while the meat was cooking.

While cruising the store yesterday I picked up this brisket, too cheap to pass up and this will be the first brisket on the pellet cooker.

All trimmed and I cut off the thin end of the flat. I'll use it to make pastrami or something.

I'm testing a new rub mix, fajita, steak and bbq rub. It's on the smoker at 200 for the next few hours or until I get impatient and crank the heat to get the color I want before it goes in a pan.

Finally it hit the stall and I set it in a pan to get happy, it smells amazing already. I cheated a little on the spritz and it made a nice bark, 2 oz of Dale's Sauce to 2 cups of beef broth! Also used it in the pan.

The flash doesn't do the color justice, it's looking better than the pics.

The brisket is resting in a happy place for at least 2 hours and I'm getting hungry because it smells awesome. I pulled it at 212* when it was probe tender, I think it's gonna be good with that giggle. Total cook time was right at 8 hours. I noticed part of the point was getting darker than the rest and then saw I had some of the trimmings wrapped in foil for the dog sitting on the shelf right above it. I think that's what caused it to burn a little. HMMM, something to play with next time.

OH Man, am I stuffed. 
 
I sliced up the brisket along with burnt ends and made sides.

Sugar snap peas, broccoli and fried garlic in the wok then topped with fresh grated parm.

I cooked steak fries and made a scampi sauce then threw them in the wok to mix it up before adding more cheese, these things are addictive. Finished the plate with the usual pickled onions and jalapenos with a side of BBQ sauce. That rolled over piece of flat was almost as tender as the fatty part. I'm gonna sleep good tonight!! :cheers:

Damn RG, that looks insane. I can't wait to do a brisket in mine.  Did 25 lbs of country ribs Friday for my crew and they came out amazing.

I got to use the smoker over the holiday and did 5 slabs of St Louis ribs.  I brined them overnight in salt, brown sugar, peppercorns, and bay leaves. First time I've tried brining ribs. Then I hit them with a rub from a local meat market. Into the smoker at 225 for about 5 hours while we were out on the boat.  Got back and the ribs turned out fantastic.  Definitely like the added flavor from brining. I know it looks like I cut them with a chain saw but I didn't have a good knife in the camper.

I will eat your chainsaw ribs any day!

Rajun, that brisket came out nice! I still havent done a full brisket, I did a little one from Wal-Mart that came out pretty good, and I grabbed a tri-tip the other day and cooked it to 200 IT. It was really good, even though I dont think thats the recommended way to do tri-tip. There weren't any leftovers lol.

Keep crushing it on your pit bosses fellas! Makes me wish I would have tried harder to get one on sale.
