    I'm posting this in Beef since there isn't an "Overkill' section. Anyhow, we wanted to stay off the roads on New Years Eve, so we cooked out and played dice games here all night.

    The QView may be a little sparse...it was New Years afterall

    Here's the brisket flat, and the rub I threw together


    5.20lbs Brisket


    Rubbed and wrapped, put back in fridge for about 6 hours


    Here is where I should have got more pics....My buddy came up from Yuma with a marinated Lamb leg. He has a tried and true recipe from his fam, and I had to do a little convincing to get him to smoke it rather than grill it. I also had a rack of Babybacks, and a rack of spares that I only trimmed the bottom flap off. Oh yeah, and some pepperoni/cream cheese ABT's in my new ABT holder (xmas gift from Mrs. ThunderDome)

    Here they are after who knows how long on the smoker


    Here is our 9:00 snack break in the works...One friend had already called it a night at this point. There must have been something in the beer???


    ABT's fresh off the grill. They were a hit! My wife and I only got one. Gotta be fast with this group I guess. Our LCR dice in the background


    My ABT. Yes, I got weird looks for taking a picture of my appetizer


    And finally we ate...here are the ribs (forgive the picture taking at this point)


    Leg of Lamb


    And the Brisket


    Until the next one...

    I had no clue costco sold briskets. What is the per lb cost, the red mark is in the way? Looks to be 2.99, correct me if im wrong.

    Looks good. Been looking for a quality brisket but are hard to find. I can source the cheap select all day but why. Also called a local "butcher" and they have 18lb briskets FROZEN for me. yea right.

    The lamb turned out good, unfortunately too many people over did it on the stuff they were more comfortable with. More leftovers for me though

    They have great brisket. it was $2.79/lbs

    Hahaha
     
  10. Wow, impressive spread there! I'm barely trying to crank out one type of meat at a time... hope to be as skilled one day :)
