Well...after popping back in...talking shit...and getting ready...


*I'm Probably out.  My 2 year old boy had tonsils out on Monday, and started bleeding profusely in the wee hours this morning.  Looked like a murder scene in the house.  EMS rushed to the ER, emergency surgery...and we are home.   I was gonna work it up today...but that little guy...

I maaaaaaaay try to eek out what I wanted tomorrow at some point...but a 2yo < 24h out of the hospital...I dunno...but my idea is so damn good...and I have fresh nagas too...argh.

Yeah...I got in a hurry slicing, and sliced the big end one way, instead of separating them...fortunately it was tender enough it didn't matter much.  But bark...really?  Did you NOT see the meat-on-the-bun pic...that black piece?  lol  Regardless, it was a new technique, and I like it!


The brisket looked weird to me, no bark, and possibly sliced with the grain (hard to tell). I think that last 4 hours, smoking covered in a marinade pan with apple juice, was more of a braise than a smoke, and that softened the bark. That's also the reason it has that faded color, from steaming in that covered pan.

Thanks brother...it's hard for me to even want to think outside the smokebox for BBQ, when ribs are kind of a thang for me...I mean...how many TD's have I entered ribs? Besides the ones I entered carnitas)  But, I don't often enough get the chance to give the smoker a true workout, so when I do, I pack on the favorites.  I was going to smoke a turkey as well for this TD...but then I saw no birdies...

Goin' with the Kid early...FD always puts on a hell of a show, no doubt!  But thinking of what it takes to make vegetarian meals, and how it was applied to a seemingly unlikely method...I'll go with the Kid.
