    Suggestion for site admin

    Can we get a bbq forum like we have for cigars? I wouldn't mind exchanging some tips and technique. That is unless our members dont like to eat.

    What if I stick this thread and change the title to "The Official BBQ Thread"?

    I cooked a nice 3lb tri tip tonight. I dry brined it overnight with kosher salt black pepper granulated garlic onion powder parsley and a little paprika. Cooked indirect until around 110. (30 mins fat side up then fat side down) over charcoal with mesquite chips and then direct to get the right sear on the outside until internal temp hit 130. Let rest for 10 mins. I had a nice 3/16ths smoke ring all of the way around and it was done perfectly no pics this time because I was too hungry.

    We have WILDFIRES all over northern California right now. I was going to smoke some brisket but in good conscience I can't fire up the smoker, when the SMOKE from the fires is choking the air quality at street level But when the air gets better I'll try to post some pics

    We have a total ban on outdoor fires ... and I totally agree with it. No way I'm gonna add to the crap that we're breathing at street level, not until the weather clears up and the wind blows to the ocean.



    AMAZING. Since no one is driving, the air quality before the fires was super clear. The Lockdown had lowered our pollution to a historic level (not that it's a good thing to TANK the economy but the one silver lining was great air quality.) Now Nature has said 'Fuck off, I'm gonna make your air a living hell hahahahahaha

    Seems like Mother Nature isn't having any of your burn bans, assisted by the stupid forestry laws of not being able to burn the understory every once in a while to prevent fires like these from occurring.

    Mayeb these fires will cause someone to rethring about their banning controlled burns in the future.

    It looks about the same out here, its terrible.

    I keep feeling like it's winter when I look outside until I realize its about 100 degrees and I can barely breathe.

    But back to the original topic I think it would be great to have a bbq sub forum where we can exchange recipes and techniques especially since we have people from all over the US.

    Whether or not the admin agrees, I'm going to continue burning cow for some time.

    Okay Napots, I'll give you a recipe, although this is more of a marinade.
    Take one of those plastic 5 qt. ice cream pails and start with 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1/4 - 1/3 cup mustard, 1/2 cup EACH ketchup and BBQ sauce, ~ 1 pint of cold water, assorted spices (garlic powder {NOT "salt"}, onion powder, cumin, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, etc.), then stir vigorously to mix. NOW, add 1 can of beer and stir GENTLY (so you don't lose the carbonation). Then put your meat of choice in the pail, making sure it is completely covered, replace the lid and put in the fridge overnight.
    Remove the meat about 10-15 minutes before going on the grill to let the excess liquid drip off.
    Near the end of grilling, you can brush on your favorite BBQ sauce or wait until the meat is off to avoid possible burning of the sauce.
    I have used this for squirrel, rabbit, groundhog/woodchuck, pork steaks, chicken breasts/thighs/drumsticks, T-bones, rib-eyes, and porterhouse steaks.
