I was asked to cook two briskets, 5 racks of ribs, and baked beans for a company christmas party. Got all the meat prepped, and cookers ready to fire on monday night. Woke up at 3am tuesday, and started fires on the chargriller (for the ribs), and the new Backwoods (for the brisket) that Smokey Okie so graciously presented me with on Sunday. After both smokers were up to temp, I fired up a weber grill to sear the brisket. Ribs went on at 0415, brisket at 0430.

Ribs after being rubbed.

Who says you can't control the temps on a CG? Held this for 5 hrs.

Ever wonder what to do with all that trimmed off fat? how about a zip lock baggie in a sauce pan? zip it up, and its gone!:thumbs up:

It all turned out great. I got to stay for lunch, and even got paid for cooking which I did not expect. Bonus!:woohoo:. I think I have gained respect for you guys who cook massive quanities of meat by yourselves.

Thanks for letting me share.

Great brisky, looks like you didnt have that many trimmins!!

What do you mean ziplock and into a sauce pan with the fat trimmins??? I cook mine down in a small sauce pan with some apple juice till most of the fat has rendered. I put that juice back into the fat separator for more au jus for the brisky and nibble on whats left of the beef in pan.

:kewlpics:, make sure you add that new weapon to your sig line:msn-wink:

That definately looks like Okie brisket. Makes my mouth water just sitting here thinking about it. Nice Job and congrats on the new Backwoods.

You mean the Okie finally sold a Backwoods! Cowabunga! Tax write off time! Or did he barter for some new cabinets for the Okette?
They are NICE smokers. Especially with the Guru.

And that brisket looks good enough to eat! Got me jonesin' for some brisket now. Great job Curt!
Keep those cooks and pics comin'.
