    Hi all! First and foremost I want to wish you all a Safe and Happy 4th of July!

    I'm looking at doing a butt, some burnt ends, maybe some beer braised chicken and beef jerky. I can't wait! Love, Love, Love my smoker!!!!

    Gonna be chillin' tending the smoke and drinking a few ice cold Sam Adams Porch Rockers (SO GOOD, if you haven't tried them DO IT).

    What's on your menu?

    I think I might do chicken or ribs... something that wont take too long.  There is far too many fireworks, and too much beer to spend too much time with the smoker. 

  6. Voodoo - I've never done a brisket before so I'm little nervous.   Its been on for a little over 5+ hours.  Its a 3.5lb flat. I had my smoker between 230 and 240, when the brisket it an IT of 165, I wrapped in foil and put it back on.  It was an hour or so and the brisket hit 190 but when I inserted the probe, it seemed tough and I was surprised it was at 190.  I checked a couple of spots it didn't just slide in.  But, I still pulled it off the smoker and wrapped it in towels and put in in the cooler for a few hours.   Will it tender up?  Could it be its just going to be tough?

    On the flip slide, the shoulder is going great.  Its been sitting at 165 for a bit, so might be stalling but I'm in no hurry as this is for the weekend.  Snuck a piece off the end and its might tasty!

    After sitting it should be good. The residual heat should take it where it needs to be. I had to pull my last one off at 180. It wasn't fall apart done but, done nonetheless. It still was awesome!

    I've been smoking ribs every 4th for the past 3 years.  Our condo balcony overlooks the park where they shoot the fireworks off at.  so it's a perfect excuse to smoke ribs and drink beer all day.  Bought my ribs and Bells Two Hearted last night.

    That's great. I use to have a grill on my deck and it was the best. Grilling and having all of the neighbors that didn't have won envious.
