Put on my fairy wings this morning.   

Having an infrared side burner on the grill is pretty fucking awesome. Thanks for the tip Marc. Indirect heat @225F for 30 minutes and then a 30 second sear per side on the infrared burner.

Smoked chuck roast. Much better than I expected. And a great excuse to use plenty of horseradish cream sauce.

Crack & Cheese paired very nicely with Makers Mark.  No left overs.  Difficult to compete with Yak and Alpaca :)

My first ever brisket, a flat.  Good bark, nice smoke ring, bursting with flavor, pulled apart perfectly but was a bit dry.  Most likely the meat.

I haven't grilled since we switched from charcoal to propane.  Back at it with the pellet pooper.  I'm having fun and some success.

Sadly, many of my conversations now start exactly like this. :(

I kinda figured you'd have a comment on my comment. 

Hey grillers, a Kroger in my area had the Char Broil Akorn Komado on sale for about two hundred bucks.  They had several, so I think it's worth checking out in your own area, if you have Kroger stores.  It's not a Green Egg, of course, and you probably want to use some high temp silicone sealant or furnace cement around the gaps, but once fixed, that's a damned cheap price for a good grill.

I don't, but you have to start somewhere.  Besides, the "Texas Crutch" isn't the end of the world.  


Substitute a bald, bearded helicopter pilot with fairy wings and you'll know what you've done today.

It was pretty good, but not perfect.  

Oddity #1 - the thicker part of the brisket was the least tender.  Not sure what is going on there.  Possibly just a function of being the flat as opposed to the point.   

Observation #1 - I used too much rub.  Not a problematic amount, but more than needed.  Otherwise the flavor and smoke were very good so at least I got that part right.  Also need to work on my trimming skills.  The fat cap I left was a bit on the thick side as it remained on a majority of the pieces but was easily trimmed.
