Found the board today through Yahoo.

Been smoking brisket for several years on my Weber gas grill. My wife got me a Great Outdoors propane smoker for Christmas. Yep, from what I gather on this board, I am a LazyBBQer.

The first thing I am smoking is a Boston Butt and will be taking it off in about 2 more hours. It holds the temp great.

My brisket technique which serves me well:

9 hours in light smoke at 215. Put in a pan, add a little beer or water and cover tightly with foil, then crank the heat to 275 for 3 more hours.

RUB: I prefer Angelo's Beef Rub and Angelo's Chicken/Pork Rub.
(Angelo's used to be the best bbq joint in Fort Worth. Still pretty good, but many say RailHead is now better).

Right on - welcome aboard JGH. We don't know what we're doing here but sure have a helluva good time trying to figure it out. Lotsa good talent, humor, and friendship can sum this joint up. Glad to have you.

Welcome fellow Texan!

Angelo's and Railhead can be a close call. One thing they both have in common is ice cold beer so I'm willing to cut either some slack now and then :)

BTW, the pulled pork came out great. Used the same technique and cooking time as for my brisket.

I really like my new smoker.

FYI, Academy is now carrying Angelo's rubs. $5.99 for a large jar.

Nice to meet you. These guys are a wealth of BBQ knowledge. I'm not. Ask me anything about Mexicans and/or being a Mexican. I am an expert.

Thanks for the kind welcome.

BTW, I need to report a theft. The pulled pork is gone. No way it was eaten that quickly, so it must have been stolen.

I will be doing pulled pork and brisket for New Year's Eve. A friend of ours is from North Carolina and he misses it. Does anyone know of a good recipe for that mustard sauce?

Read somewhere you are supposed to update your cattle call from time to time. So, I will update mine with the introduction of my new bandera from Academy.

I will still be primarily a gasser, but wanted to try my hand at charcoal/wood in case I ever wanted to compete. Plus, I may make the lazy q mod to the bandera so that I have to good smokers.

Curious to see if the bandera brisket flavor is much different from my gasser.

Congrats on the dera, don't convert it until you have burned some sticks and cooked a brisket. You may never lite that gasser again
