    Well at the last minute my mom decided she wanted me to make these this weekend & i can't turn down a good smoke so here they are in the works......





    More to come soon

    but heres the brisket & fatty ingredients i'll be using later tonight for an all nighter



    thats turkey bacon from last night's BLT's , Horseradish , Whole Jalapenos , Texas Pete pepper juice ( but i'm gonna use the peppers themselves)fresh green onions , & last but not least provolone

    A lil backstory to the brisket .... my grandfather was diagnosed a month ago w/ terminal cancer & was given 2 months or less to live. so a few weeks back they asked if i'd smoke a brisket & i did(my grandpa is a fellow smoker as well, so he knows his stuff). Everyone loved it & devoured it. Both my grandpa & grandma said it was the best they'd ever had & my grandma looked square @ my grandpa & said even yours Bob.I think it was one of the best i have ever done & what really proved it was the leftovers . there were approx. 4-5 pcs left outta this 8 lber. & we had family who hadnt made it there ... so my grandma & grandpa said they would freeze it & keep it for when they came. well , i kept asking over the next wk if they had let them try it & they kept sayin nope not yet . so a few days later my grandpa & me were talking & i asked him again if they'd tried it & he gave me this real funny look & said "Hell no , i ate the son of a [email protected]#% that was too good to let them have". Now my grandpa;s never been much for compliments so he must've really loved that damn brisket. but anyways that was 3 weeks ago .......... now he can barely talk & we think the cancer is going to take him w/i a week or two . but yesterday he requested my brisket again , so i'm gonna try & make this the best damned brisket pt2.

    Sorry to hear about your Grandpa cancer is a hell of a way to go but sounds like he has plenty of loving family to help him along his journey.

    Think i'll use the 3-2-1 method next time instead of the 2-2-1 on the baby backs.... ends were perfect , but the middles were definitely far from fallin off the bone[​IMG] . oh well .... atleast my briskets always hit the mark.

    I'm sorry to hear about your Grandfather. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    The ribs look really good. [​IMG] I find that 3-2-1 is too long for ribs too.
