By the way..they don't know what a brisket is here. Go figure.
Chili is what I'd be eating too if I were you!

Not knowing what brisket is? Now that's a sad state of affairs...

Hey Marcus,

While you're at it, for the vegetarians among us (yes, even here in Texas), how about throwing on a few veggies, maybe zucchini. Also throw on a few tomatoes, onions and jalapenos for a zesty salas for those chips. Helps the beer go down just a tad bit smoother. I'll bring the avocados for the guacamole and the tortillas? Brisket makes great fajitas too.

Some of us do

Deauxrite, some of us know what a brisket is. I had a pit built in Texas and shipped to me in Wrangell in a big box that they brought to the house with a fork lift and I buy brisket by the case as that is the only way the store will sell them to me. I use Alder which seems to work well and I don't let the tempt get above 212 as water boils at that and I can keep the brisket moist because I cook for 15 to 16 hours. About four years ago I cooked 5 cases of brisket for the local Elks for the 4 of july. They sold more food than they did beer which was a first for the fourth. Some of us know what a brisket is. I do miss City Market though.

Texas and brisket! I think the last time I went up against a Texan in a brisket cook-off, he ended up owing me some cash. I send my smoked meats to those poor souls stuck in places like NY, DC, Ky, and even Okla. Ever try smoked meatloaf? Pork ribs, pork shoulder (or butt), hot links, brisket, and anything making the list of P.E.T.A. goes into 'The Kursk'. Utee's got it just about right, but I'd hold the heat (of the smoke) down to 180-190 for about 5 hours (or about 8 Coronas, whichever comes first).

Much like polishing techniques, preferred trailer tires, or favorite WD equipment, every BBQ cook has his own way. It also depends a lot on where the temperature gauge on the individual unit is, and how it delivers the heat.

You've got a nice rig, I'd be proud to eat some brisket prepared by you on that big baddy.

Marcus, This is Pit beef. This is Maryland's version of BBQ. There are road side stands everywhere. Some are better than others. This one draws a huge crowd, but we never buy it. Too expensive and tiny for three slices of beef on white bread.

This fine rig is used by the vegan vendor. Everything is mushroom related. I think the use of this rig is sacrilegious and always tell my wife that they are on mushroom by not using that thing the right way.

utee94 said - Spending the night in your Airstream makes for a perfect weekend I think. My wife has told me numerous times that she has no doubt I'm going to be doing that regularly as soon as we finally get one.

utee94 - Only another Airstreamer could understand that . Mine is sometimes also used as a periodic mental escape pod. It's quiet, no phones, my DVD's & books are out there, but sadly no internet connection (yet!! - to ward off the 'sweet hints' that all I do is surf the Forums!! !!).

utee94 said - Yeah, it got pretty dern hot yesterday didn't it? I was outside all day cleaning and re-staining my deck and patio furniture, and I had no choice but to cool off with a few icy cold long-necks myself. I was a bit apprehensive about spending the day hanging out by a fiery hot pit, but this morning the temperature is so pleasant that it's been a fantastic morning.

utee94 - Yesterday's temp was a great excuse to keep the cooler stocked and take frequent breaks to re-hydrate, Texas style . Taking the streaks off the AS this am was a treat - great weather this early in the day & good music on the radio. Life's good.

utee94 said - I love the Wimberly area by the way, we're thinking about buying some property out there. A few acres, hopefully with a view. That will be the future home of our future Airstream.

utee94 - Whenever you have a weekend day not being spent on the side roads looking for your AS, send me a PM & we'd be glad to show you the few places in this area selling small'ish acreage. I'm on 5.5 acres between Wimberley & Blanco & believe me, it's more than enough to keep up. But it does provide great privacy & good for my soul. AND the drive into Austin isn't any more than if you lived in most major city suburbs. Lots of folks out here drive into Austin & San Antonio every day. But then, today's fuel prices might be a downer on that for a while .

MAJOR QUALIFIER - Any 1950 to 1956 FC or Safari we may spot while on the above friendly tour - first call is MINE . I've got all the local cedar choppers and road & fence builders on the lookout for one for me . There's just GOTTA be that "oh-so-fine" 1954 or '55 FC stored in a barn around here somewhere !!! Same hopes for your Globetrotter too .

Wishing you & yours a GREAT Mother's Day.

Jim

Utee, the smoker was custom made in Nahunta, Ga. and shipped to Az. It's 1/4 inch boiler plate steel and weighs in at a half ton. I designed the pedestal and the holding cradle and had to use an engine hoist to get the darn thing up there...next time, I'm getting one with wheels!

Amen brother! My father-in-law used to sell trailer smokers as well as backyard pits. The mark-up on trailer smokers was over 100%, and his competitors were still charging about 1.5 that!

My charitable non-profit corporation has a trailer smoker that we use for out tailgate parties. I probably have some pictures of it on this computer somerhere, I'll post 'em if I can find 'em.

Brisket makes awesome fajitas. Grilled/smoked veggies are delicious, and I bet my wife has some ready for me to cook before the day is through!

Jim, same to you. I'll keep my eye out for your FC or Safari, and you do the same for a '61 Overlander for me ('58-'63 actually, and I'd probably consider '64 or '65 too). And I'll probably take you up on your kind offer of land hunting out there. We've been saving up for years to do this-- originally I wanted waterfront on Lake Travis, but it's just gotten SO expensive. It's about 5x what it was just seven years ago when I almost bought some...

Frank, the pit beef looks good. But I understand what you're saying about price. Even down here, BBQ restaurants have a huge markup on the meat itself. I usually choose to make my own rather than pay restaurant prices.
