    I sure do love this art of ours, even in most weather, snow, cold, heat, anything but wind and I'm a happy smoker, doing some burnt ends makes me an even happier smoker [​IMG]

    I picked up a full packer and decided to turn the point into burnt ends and then cure the flat for some pastrami.

    Separated the point from the flat.

    Slathered the point with chipotle mustard and chipotle rub and let it rest for a few hours then into the smoker using oak at 300 degrees.

    Smoked unfoiled until it hit 190 (about 5 hours) let rest only shortly so I wouldn't have juices all over the cutting board then cubed, dusted with more chipotle rub and back into the smoker.

    Used a shallow foil pan and poked holes in the bottom

    I knew the snow was coming and this is what I was greeted with when going to put them back on the smoker

    Can't even see the ground now!

    As I typed this up I had to check and add a bit of water so I snapped a quick pic.

    Another 20 then I'm going to toss with some BBQ sauce then back in for one additional hour. I normally do them for a total of 3 additional hours but since I am running at 300 I will do an hour in with seasoning and smoke then one with BBQ and they should be good.

    Time to head back out, will update when they are close [​IMG]

    Not me, my Brother in law and believe me we give him crap about it all the time, it's ComCraptic.
    On the plus side lots of free or cheap services depending on what you want, the newest DVRs before the public gets them, I guess lucky for them Verizon Fios turned out to not be as great as it was supposed to.

    They are so amazingly good, I love brisket but if you offer me sliced brisket or some burnt ends I'm picking the deliciously crunchy yet melt in your mouth goodness that is burnt ends.
    Hope you give them a try!

    There used to be concrete out the front door!

    Burnt ends off the smoker after some smoke love, now time to sauce them and back in.

    One more hour to go!

    Ok, now normally I prefer chuckies to brisket but now I have to go get a brisket just so I can have some burnt ends. They look really good.

    Btw, we're getting snow here too now.

    Fresh and hot off the smoker, tasty little buggers are just begging to be eaten...

    One of them got their wish, well several of them did [​IMG]
    You can see all the tasty, smoky, crunchy, goodness with some broken down fat that just melts like butter.

    My favorite way to eat burnt ends, on some white bread with butter-BBQ Bliss!

    To answer your question Alex I am really enjoying it, everything I have done with high heat on the propane has come out perfectly fine and in half the time, have only done a few that way on the sNp but they came out great as well. Thanks again for the tips [​IMG]

    Now it's time to go and shovel some snow, and it's still coming down!

    Man you're giving that newly re-born smoker a workout these days. Did you do the flat on there too? The ends look great as usual.

    Now about that snow...dang. I feel for ya.

    [​IMG]for hanging in there in the weather.

    The flat (actually still sitting in the fridge waiting for its medicine) is going to get cured for some chipotle pastrami next week, I was going to make the whole thing into pastrami but I had a hankering for burnt ends so took off the point.

    Whatever BBQ sauce is your favorite. On these I used Curley's Famous Hot & Spicy BBQ sauce (love that stuff and it has a nice short natural list of ingredients and no HFCS like 90% of sauces.
