    I have been cooking briskets and beans for a birthday party for a 90 year old lady that lives in the community. I started last night by seasoning and putting 2 cases of briskets (12) into my Southern Pride smoker. I put them on at 7:00 PM last night @ 200*. I checked temps at 10:AM and they were in the 175* range. It is now 2:30 PM and they are in the 190* range. In about another hour they will be ready to rest. Pics will follow.

    Briskets were rubbed with mustard and seasoning, then placed into the smoker. I did not do a good job of taking a pic of the cut up brisket. Things seem to get a little hectic about that time. The guest of honor, and more seasoned briskets in the smoker.

    As for the left over briskets, one man took 3 to take to some oil drilling rigs and another took the rest as he is going to Musquz, Mexico next week for some missionary work.

    Oh yes, she likes my cooking anyway, so she will really enjoy it. Babe is the oldest person along this 100 mile stretch of the Pecos River and can tell some tales as she has lived and ranched here all her life. I will have some pictures to post tonight or tomorrow.

    Sounds great, Goat! I guess you know why us older generation likes pulled pork so much. It's easier to chew with someone else's teeth. [​IMG]

    Thanks goddess, she is a hoot. She received calls all day Sunday about how good the food was. She called me last night and said she had a set of knives someone had given her and her husband about 60 years ago and she wanted me to have them. I can't wait to see what they are.
