I am a team player, but I made dang sure that nobody used me for their advancement.  I was and am still not afraid of going straight to the top and diming out somebody!

That Gerber folder is my every day pocket knife...er tool. If you didn’t know, you can mail that thing back to gerber they’ll either clean and sharpen or replace. All for the cost of shipping!

did you get lost.....?

Nope! Had my daily ration of color this morning :) post 898, the knife he velcroed into his door handle. Probably should have quoted it.

But it needs to be one of those crazy expensive high-speed cameras like they used on Mythbusters whenever they would blow something up.

JR let me make sure I understand this correctly.

you paid a business to re-gear your truck for you.....that business put the new gears in but did it wrong.....that business is only going to cover the cost of labor, while you have to pay more money out of your pocket to buy the same equipment for that same incompetent individual to try again?

is this correct, or did I miss something completely while I was trying to unscrew myself?

Keep in mind that this will take anywhere between 6-12hrs.  If it gets done before your planned service time, wrap it in a towel and stick it into a small cooler that has been pre-heated with boiling water..(dump water out before you put meat in)

1. If you want a crispy bark, do not wrap while cooking

2. If you want a softer bark, wrap at 165F / 73.8C

3. Be aware that once it reaches 165F / 73.8C it will what is called "the stall", it means it will stay at that temp for quite a while while all of the colagen is melting.

4. To help get past the stall you can wrap

5. If you want it to get done quicker, bump your heat to 350F / 176.6C

If this your first one, heres a very simple (k.i.s.s.) methid for you.

1. Get your smoker going to 275-300
2. Trim some of the thick deckle fat off as well as some of the other fat...(leave maybe 1/4" left on to protect the meat from drying out)
3. Rub a light coat of olive oil all over the brisket (it helps the rub stick) (Pay attention to the direction the meat grain is running!)
4. If you dont already have a rub that you have used before, just mix up some S.P.O.G. (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder) to your taste.  If you want a crispy bark add some brown sugar, and if you want a little color add some paprika.
5. When smoker has settled at temp, put brisket on and stick temp probe in it.
6. Shut the door, and DO NOT OPEN unless you have to add more fuel. And when you do open it, leave the meat alone....lol
7. When internal temp reaches roughly 190 F / 97.7c test the resistance of the meat with a temp probe (it should be able to go in very easy and have just a little pull back when taking it out)..a general rule of thumb is roughly 205-210F / 96.1-98.8C and it should be done.
8. When done, pull brisket, and wrap it in either a towel, butcher paper or parchment paper and let rest for roughly 30 minutes.
9. Slice across the grain roughly pencil thick (or whatever your preference is.

Once cut, there should be just a little resistance when trying to pull the slice apart.

Yeah, that was one of the very first editions of the blackstone flattop.  I bought it june 2015.

There were 2 initial problems with them. 

1. The front lip was way too short, so when you scraped the hot grease into the trough it had a tendency to splash out all over your front.  So to fix that, i had a piece welded to it to make that grease trough a bit higher.

2. The second inherent problem was the grease drain hole.  All they did from the factory was litterally drill a small hole and hoped that the grease would drain thru it.  But what actually happened was that the grease would actually drip/drain backwards underneath the grease trough.  So when i had the lip on the grease trough raised, i had a bigger drain hole drilled out and also had a piece of angle iron shaped and welded underneath to divert the grease out and down.

I think on the newer versions, they put the drain hole in the back middle?

One of the other things that really bothered me was the flimsyness of the whole thing.  Because of how they made it to be somewhat portable, the legs were held in place by one small roll pin with clip, and the lower shelf easily fits between the 2 legs and was held in place by a little screw on each side.  Had they put some sort of angle bracing on the legs and made it more stable, i would have been happy with it.

honestly guys, you are witnessing me admit that I screwed up. (mark your calendars....lol)

but in all reality, I just sold it.  why you ask?!

this one takes up too much room.  I have a 2 burner camp chef stove that I am going to get a flat top for.  that way I can actually keep it stored inside and out of the elements and not take up so much room on my patio with all of my other cooking equipment.

The rust was soo bad that it actually pitted the metal and i had to use a 60 flap disc over the entire top to somewhat fix it.

But after that was done and cleaned up, i seasoned it and of course had to use it to make sure it still works....lol

Got a brush cutter for the mini excavator. Actually ordered Thursday pm and it showed up on a freight truck Monday morning...it was in North Carolina and I'm in AZ. Pretty impressive if you ask me.
The Idaho property is so thick you can't walk through it, so I think this will help, especially since it's not flat property.


Are you going to do a how to video and show the old man how to properly use implements with out destroying them on the first use.....

Rounded corners don't get dinged up as bad as a sharp corner. Common sense. .. Dave don't like them because they are harder to do, and the trim is more difficult. (Almost done doing my brothers trim.. finally)
Been a couple days since I took out my frustrations on Dave... feel better now.

Don. Happy birthday Soldier!

I’m grateful to the Lord for you. You have given us a place to commiserate with like minded people. These men can swallow the anger at today’s Godless world and still keep doing the right things. But you, sir, have given us a place of respite from the everyday where instead of surviving, we are thriving because we gain sustenance from each other.

I’m lifting you up to Him and may He keep and preserve you in His will for years to come.
