I am hoping to smoke my first brisket here soon. I had an UDS smoker which I miss and loved, now it have a smokey mountain from Weber which I like but not as much as my UDS. Any good brisket advice out there. I have done scores of Boston Butts and a few ribs but no brisket yet.

I prefer 6-10 pounds and right around 3/4" to 1" maximum on the fat cap. I usually shoot for 210° which should be about 195-205° at grate-level in most smokers. For a 10 pound brisket at 220°, you're looking at about 14-16 hours of time so it's literally an all day event. Pick a nice relaxing Saturday or Sunday and grab a few of your favorite beers. Try not to leave the smoker unattended for too long though. You should be good to check in on it every 30-45 minutes or so at max though.

Please don't get me started on rubs though because I'll never shut up and I don't want to take over the thread lol :beer:

Finally, carving is extremely important as well. I usually start at the point. Always keep your eye on the grain and cutt cross grain into 1/8-1/4" thick slices. I've had briskets where the grain changed 4-5 times while cutting. Always keep up on the grain's direction for the most tender cuts. (I cringe when I see people carving up a steak in all different directions, so maybe I'm too crazy about this step)

no, not at all.  i do an awesome flank steak and the most important steps are the heat of the grill and then the cutting.  if its not across the grain then its ruined.

Just blew it for the day. Should have taken a picture of the monster elk roast sub I just ate, elk roast, tomato, red onion, shredded lettuce, hot peppers with oil and seasoning. All in all somewhat healthy if not for the massive roll. I gave half to an employee because I couldn't resist the pheasant breast on rye with house smoked swiss so I'll be hitting the carbs again later. I'm not big on diet "cheat days" but I'm cutting loose today. Dang near bought a corned buffalo sub just because.

Di Fara's in Brooklyn. Gets a lot of accolades but overrated imho. Very good pizza, but doesn't live up to the hype but very few do.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Been planning this meal for a while. Told my KB instructor that if I hit my body weight goal I'd take him to IHOP.

I had the chicken and waffles, omelette with bacon, mushroom, tomato, cheese and blueberry pancakes.

Donuts from Brooklyn's Dough. From bottom right counter clockwise, that's a salt caramel, lemon poppy, hibiscus, and dulce con leche.

Grilled Pizza ... homemade everything for the pizza eating dieter...  peppers, mushrooms, San Marzano, Basil, Spinach, and reduced cheese.

Not the most appetizing look, and I was low in the cupboard or I would have added sautéed onions and kalamata olives.

I made an apple pie yesterday (first photo) mostly because I'm working on perfecting my crust technique, and apples were on sale. I had two apples and some paste left over, so I made "baked apple apple-pie" thingies. I cored out the apples through the top and hollowed them out a bit, chopped the scooped out apple meat with pie seasoning, and stuffed it back in. Then I rolled out the dough. Half I cut into strips and made a lattice top for one apple, the other half I shaped into a full pie crust and put it on the other. Then I baked it off as you would baked apples. I liked the original full pie better myself, but I think the individual apples would make a neat Thanksgiving dessert for friends. They came out pretty good. I played around and sprinkled the tops with colored sugar, as you can see. But I don't think it looked good. Next time I'm just brushing it with an egg wash and white sugar. (BTW the miniature corgi figurine is mandatory.)

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
