The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Disco Inferno

The combination of this summer cold that I have, and the lack of air conditioning in the room with the computer mean this will be a quick post. Yay!

Hiroshi and I went to Long Island on Friday night, fired up the pit by 10:30 at night and had the briskets hitting the heat by midnight. The pork butts went on an hour later, followed by the ribs a few hours after that, and then the chicken. Somewhere in there we cooked some kielbasa, too. We were pulling the pork off the smoker at around 3 the next afternoon. We pulled the pork and packed it into sandwich bags, sliced the briskets and were back on the Long Island Railroad heading into NYC by 6pm on Saturday. Got home and crashed. Here's the for smell-o-vision.

Looks good man. But tell me why do you slice the brisket before storing it?

Thanks, brudda. A few reasons for slicing the briskets for storage-- enabling smaller serving sizes for future meals, so I don't have to heat a whole brisket for just me (or me and the wife) and portability are foremost. Then again, I always have a couple of full, cooked briskets socked away for when I need/want one. In reality, I think I could sit down and eat a flat all by myself.

Thanks, everyone for the notes. I'm almost feeling 100% again.

Mona-- where you been!? I hope you don't get this icky bug that's been going 'round.

A meet-up sounds like a good idea. I told WhiteTrashBBQ that we were having it his place. We'll see about that. A fiesta is much needed.....
