It wasn't too bad; we usually use chicken, so had to change the recipe a bit to account for a different meat. And my son changes things every time he cooks. Marinated it in lime juice, added tamarind instead of vinegar which is usually used with pork (cause I just like tamarind better), some charnuska, a little asafoetida and of course fenugreek (which appears to be a go-to spice for him) while it cooked, to the recipe's list of typical vindaloo spices...it was pretty good.


Probably not as good as your brisket--actually, I'm sure it wasn't. Does Mocha hang around the smoker the whole time it is in use??
Maybe the sprinkler guy is one of our Daddy's?



The family tree is really confusing here.

I know, right?

Do you want me to escort him to the WS?

I marinate my brisket with lime juice.

And that is all the secret ingredients you are going to get out of me!

I did go back a few pages, even had a good laugh at one post, but no way am I going back a month's worth.

Anyhoo, today I smoked the third brisket of my illustrious smoking career, and I have to say, my prayers were answered and it actually came out edible and most importantly, it received the Mrs. TN seal of approval, which is pretty much all that matters.

Here ya go, Ken.
The brisket, ready to go in the smoker...for a rub I went (mostly) Texas style today; coarse Kosher salt, coarse black pepper, some celery seeds (saw that in a video), and a hint of garlic powder

Said smoker, ready for action. I even cleaned the glass door last time I used it...not sure why, because first smoke, it gets dirty again.


Mocha, of course, was outside helping me...or, was she out there in the hope I'd drop the brisket on the patio so she could abscond with it?


Well he didn't drop the meat, I may as well go up in the shade and watch him from there


Here's the brisket at 160 degrees internal temp, when it was ready to be wrapped in pink butcher paper, then returned to the smoker till it hit 200 - then it gets put into a cooler for at least an hour to rest.

8 pounds of goodness right there...I used a pellet smoker tube this time and it made a difference, there was a nice, smoky flavor all throughout the meat. I was so worried it would end up dry like the last time, not sure if it was the butcher paper or what but it came out nice and juicy.



And that's all there is. Maybe I'll do another post Labor Day with some ribs, who knows?

Oh, and I did want to mention that a local chef dropped by after smelling the smoke from my brisket.
The chef took my cell number, in case he has a difficult smoking or grilling job, or maybe a BBQ contest.
He's been a chef 25 years and has never seen a brisket cooked like this to perfection, from a self trained individual, using an electric smoker
He was in awe of my culinary prowess!

You guys didn't believe that for a second, did you?

I crack me up.


Arrivederci!
So, I've got it!

Your number is 867-5309!

StrykersPerson Good Evening Peeps!

Are you all going to miss me when I have to clear this room and unplug my puter?

Mister suggested that I want the ceiling re-done too.

Well? Since he suggested it. He really said, "So, I suppose you want the ceiling done too?"

The previous owners did a shoddy job on the ceiling in the office.

StrykersPerson Yep TN!

Damn good looking brisket!

Looks like Hoss is doing about as much as you do ! Just standing there and looking pretty and not doing anything !
07-02-2020 03:12 PM
melbrod Looks like just about any other kid on "bring your kid to work" day--bored.

I don't think I'd seen the full extent of your office (just the window you gawk at the lawn guys through)--that's quite the office for just you! Or is that somewhere else in the building?

They weren't even cute enough to salivate over.

Two walls down, one to go!

Good Morning Peeps!

I want you all to have a quality day!

So you are letting a stripper into your house this should be interesting

alan j. My dobe is a embarrassment in the water! he has enough sense to paddle with his front legs but his rear end just sinks. I do push him into the deep end to reassure myself and him that he can find his way out...but he is a mind reader and if i think about putting him in he is not to be caught! Daisy on the other hand swims like a otter , in fact when a thunderstorm is happening and she is trapped outside her safe place is swimming circles in the pool till we notice.

Cressrb Bug, I had the same experience with a little Staffybull. We were all swimming at Donner Pass, taking a break and my dog just refused to come in the water with us. All dogs can swim I had heard. Not true. We playfully tossed him in the water with us. He immediately sunk, as you say, like a stone. We were all looking where he had gone under waiting for him to emerge. Ended up swimming down
to retrieve him. He was on the bottom waiting. Just unbelievable. He did not forgive us the rest of the way home. Like, I will never trust you again. I really learned a lesson there.

Good morning everyone. And, btw, things have not gotten any better here, but worse. It's a dark cloud that has settled above our house and it won't leave.

I don't know how you have --- " Almost " forgot that Aunt Bug - Remember when we were on the dock looking at the Hydro's and you pushed me into the water - LOL You were laughing so hard , then you told me it was a accident
You were lucky Kenny--at least you knew how to swim--the Dobe I pushed in the water (and I'd been doing that for years and never had this happen before) sank like a stone (that was Colt) we had been tracking down in Willamette Park and it was hot that day--he came out on this rickety little pier my tracking partner and I had walked out on and was looking in the water--I said "Watch this!" and pushed him--he sank leaving a trail of bubbles--we waited for him to surface--about the time i was kicking off my shoes having decided I was going to have to dive for him he emerged. He was the worst swimmer I've ever seen--talk about dog paddling--he gave us a dirty look and finally figured out where shore was and headed that way.

We went back to meet him and he rewarded us with a big shake and a lot of water. I snapped his leash back on and my partner (who had Labs) and I looked at each other and started to laugh--she told me she'd never seen a dog sink like that.

I stopped pushing anyone in the water after that--I pushed you in before I pushed poor Colt in--but you got out of the water faster that anyone I'd every seen. A hidden talent no doubt.
