Got up at 5am Sunday to do a long smoke on some pork butt. Had some technical difficulties with the FlameBoss (user error mainly) but we’re getting used to how the Weber Smoky Mountain handles! Going to try more wood next time, this seemed like it wasn’t as woody as the MAK gets the meat. […]

Smoked a 15# Prime beef brisket today. Started at noon, 9 hours on charcoal and pecan wood, finishing in the oven. (Because I didn’t realize how big the damn thing was!) It was at 176° when it went into the oven, hoping it hits 195° before we go to bed. Next time I have to […]
