    I love BBQ, but it has become difficult for me. My body just doesn't handle pork well anymore, so it's very rare for me to have it. I stick to brisket and chicken now. I love ribs...

    There's a place by me that has smoked turkey, and it's damn good. I'll probably have it Friday. It's next to my chiropractor/acupuncturist so I get it most Fridays after my appointment.

    Talking about smoking brisket for the 4th in another thread started a craving so BBQ for breakfast it is!
    My family’s version of huevos rancheros. Only takes about 3 mins to whip up when you keep chopped brisket in the freezer. If you don’t have chopped brisket in your freezer add 16-18 hours to your cook time. 133391E2-D7A7-4D35-AA7B-1BCA071BDFAA.jpeg

    Started laying in supplies for next weekends cooks.
    18 lb prime packer brisket
    4-9 lb butts
    3-3 lb racks of baby backs
    1.75 l Jim Beam
    1 gal can ketchup
    Quart of real maple syrup
    12 pack grapefruit shandy

    bourbon, ketchup and maple syrup are for the 2 gallons of sauce I’ll make between smoking the butts and brisket Thursday overnight and ribs all day Saturday

    The beer is for me! It’s very refreshing and pretty low alcohol so it’s perfect for a long day / night on fire watch. 589C5BAC-8A35-419B-830C-72C9A398BFAA.jpeg A82D044A-5B43-4F67-8783-B998927342AE.jpeg

    Ah, I used to have relatives in Santa Rosa, though I've never been. I haven't been to California since I was 3.

    We have a few good bbq places by me, my favorite being the hickory pit, right down the street from my local range.

    And so it begins...injected the brisket and the 4 butts. They will soak 24 + hours before getting rubbed just before heading for the smoke. 4BF1D2DB-9BDB-4D63-8E8C-356D4F6DE2C1.jpeg 544DED19-6E48-4AF5-B531-A61F5F75B838.jpeg

    Let’s get ready to rumble! Ok 3 grills set, post oak for main smoke, apple for the butts and mesquite for the brisket profiles all split and ready. Rubs and mops are made so it must be nap time.

    Oh and this old 307 will be my trusty companion and handle all of my knife chores this weekend before returning to the stories pile on Sunday. 42E79A59-4749-4B82-B83F-EC49C0794209.jpeg

    What a great night it was to be on fire watch! There are those people that will tell you that you can’t cook real BBQ on a Weber kettle, it’s sad when a persons doubt in themselves over rides their drive and imagination. Granted it takes work and dedication and has its limits. Right at 18 lbs per grill is the limit so for the 54 lbs I’m running tonight I needed 3 of my 4 that see most use.
    8 hours in, butts have another 8 to go and the brisket probably a solid 10. Then on to BBQ sauce. I hope you are all have as great a start to this holiday weekend as I am!

    Ok all finished up for today. Just a quick 3 slabs of baby backs tomorrow so a 6 hour walk in the park. Today’s totals were 36 lbs of pork buts after shrink equaled 19 lbs packaged. It took 6 to bring my freezer stock level back to 25 so the other 13 lbs got distributed to the neighbors. 18 lb brisket after trim and shrink netted 6 lbs chopped for my freezer bringing my stock level back to 15 lbs sorry neighbors. 1 gal bbq sauce nets 3.25 quarts in the fridge after holding back 3 cups for tomorrow’s ribs. Total cook time, 19 hours. Not a bad night and afternoons work. 7AB694D0-61FD-4109-B7E4-3ED8FBC45474.jpeg 4D76EE8C-C661-405B-879E-51B80596667B.jpeg 47B40EBB-5402-4C85-B665-1096E63DBF99.jpeg ADD93CE3-3596-4D7A-8331-98F959B06480.jpeg A937BE80-4B9F-4E1C-B5D9-34FD7D0D9AA5.jpeg

    I only looked at this thread cause Dcdavis has some delicious looking food pics on this forum, I wish I was his neighbor.
    CHNeal would be in competition for a future neighbor also.
    Thats how I met my last best friend, a new homeowner moved in next to me while I was smoking some ribs, and gave him a plate

    He’s definitely a good neighbor for sure. I honestly don’t know too many people that do true BBQ at home. I’ve got one buddy that attempts it from time to time just to do it basically. We have several BBQ restaurants around here. Now grilling is fairly common, burgers, steaks, dogs, chicken, etc. I would say it definitely increased when Corona hit. We may try and grill a little this weekend, not for sure yet, may not have the time

    7lb Boston butt that hit the smoke at 05:00. It should be ready around 16:00. Disregard the ash, that's just leftover from burgers last weekend. The charcoal/wood is in the firebox.

    Ok today’s excuse to drink beer and hangout in the back with the dogs is ribs. 3 racks of 3+ lbs of loin ribs ( baby backs ) to be exact. These are rubbed with a sweet/spicy rub and smoked over pecan wood. Will be finished with a sweet spicy glaze and I will be praised by family and neighbors alike! I’ve convinced everyone I know this is hard work and I should not be interrupted during the creation of the magic. Truth is that you could teach a monkey to do this simple cook...
    Only leaving two grills set today. 5.5 hours in one for the ribs and I’ll do a dozen ears of sweet corn on the other just before the party starts.

    CHNeil knows how to put a Webber to good use. I’m enjoying the pics. I’m more of a grill man but the bbq smoking is starting to interest me. I’m going to order a bbq knife on Monday.
