I have never cooked one.

I have a 4 burner gas grill. Current plan is indirect heat only using the right 2 burners for heat, placing brisket on left side.

I have a small cast iron smoker box for some chips and not really looking for that dark black outer crust.

Just something palatable and tender with good flavor.

Please give a little advice using the tools I have above...there are no other options at this time.


Temp to shoot for?

Dumb idea and just wasted the $$?

Wrap in foil? If so when?

Do you let it rest? I would like it to be medium if possible.

I would like to have this tonight since its dates today on sale.

Vodka... what's your choice.

Good gloomy typical Wa spring weather.

Planning on Cocktails soon...Canadian Ceasars on the menu.

I have had the usuals...Smir, Absolute, Grey G, Skyy, Finn.

Before I go plunk down a few bucks on the old standbys, any recommendations on something else to try?

Not into fufu flavored stuff.

Peppers from store bought seeds?

18 March 2018 - 12:43 PM

My local Safeway started carrying a few off the norm peppers.


Decent pile of Monzano peppers, so I grabbed the best looking one.


Can you get these to germinate?  can you sow directly with fresh seeds or need to dry first?



Slow release ferts.....what are you using?

25 February 2018 - 11:33 AM

I traditionally never used slow release fertilizers in my potting mix.


This year I plan on doing side by side with a few extras of the same plants i have....one will get slow release ferts the other will get organic liquid ferts of my choice as needed.


So what's everyone using for "Slow release mix in soil ferts" appreciate info for peppers if that matters.

Dieman Pepper Berry

After some searching I stumbled on Dieman Pepper Berry, native to Tasmannia.


Some interesting health properties from the berries, leaves, even the bark.


Anyone have info or SEEDS available?  Any info or tips on trying to grow it away from it's native climate and environment?


Quick search shows seeds take 6-9 mos to germinate.
