Smoked my first turkey breast on my "new" Weber smoker.

Best turkey I've ever had.

Very nice. Next time, if you haven't ever tried it, put some fruit in the rack below for aromatics. A few halved apples and a lemon. Some swear you can't taste the difference, but I think you definitely can. We used to smoke chicken breast with hickory and apple wood, then add some halved apples directly below. Best chicken ever.

Too lazy to cook lately. Even though it's been hot I stop nightly, if I don't golf, and pick up a medium combo pho no noodles with extra tripe and tendon.

Yellow coconut curry chicken with sauteed sugar snap peas and coconut ginger fried rice. Last night's dinner was chorizo stuffed sweet peppers and guacamole. I forgot to take a picture, and they didn't last too long...

I've only had my smoker out once this year to make some moink balls and pork chops. Love me some slow smoked meat.

I was really nervous about "Moink Balls" since I had to Google what the hell they were. Now that I did, I will definitely be making these sometime. (They're bacon wrapped meatballs smothered in bbq sauce for those who are curious)

They are awesome. I try different combos. I think my favorite is sausage balls that I roll in a rub, then generously wrap in bacon and sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar for flavor. I put them on the top rack of the smoker and let the bacon grease drip on the pork chops below. I guess those would just be oink balls though.

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've never attempted brisket myself. I've heard they can be a bit tricky.

Yeah my wife wants me to make one for a special occasion but I want to do a trial run.

    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
    • Maybe you should be honest with him.   Give him all the reasons you cited in your post.  Tell him you won't play with him unless he gets some decent clubs and takes a few lessons.   Also, for the sake of all of us, tell him he gets a maximum of 8 swings per hole, or maybe a maximum of double-par, and then he has to pick up and go to the next hole, because he's holding up everyone else on the course.
