Well, briskets were $1.65/lb @ wally world... and it was prolly closer to 100lbs of brisket (average 14lbs each x 7= 98lbs) so that cost about $160... 56lbs of tri-tip at $3.68/lb makes for another $200.... plus the cost of rub, wood, charcoal, injection <--

What was the most expensive was the cost of my pride...
Here I had to call a friend and tell him that there won't be brisket on the table that afternoon and was tri-tip an acceptable alternative (please say yes, please say yes! )...

The friend was paying me a few hundred bucks to cook... that turned into less... It was totally my fault, I couldn't ask him to pay for it. Live & learn!

Wasn't suitable for anything... I promise you, if you even got the slightest amount of the mushy stuff in a bite, it ruined the whole thing... it was incredibly gross. Wasn't even like the mush had good flavor, really strange.
Reportedly another friend's dogs consumed it all, but I think he might have just been trying to make me feel good that "at least the dogs liked it".

Laughing now (kinda), crying and angry then... I really cant convey how horrified I was upon discovering it, especially just hours before folks would be lining up for chow... very little sleep makes thinking & problem solving really difficult.

I heard once that the enzymes that are used as tenderizer (bromelain & papain), work much better/more aggressively at warmer temps and then are deactivated at around 160*... On a steak it wouldn't be a big deal since it's only on the surface and starts warming and then quickly hits 160*. I think the big problem for me was (and in BBQ in general) is that you put a large hunk of meat in a 250* smoker and then it takes the next 8 hours to hit 160*'ish... it has all that time to break down and eventually turns it into expensive dog food...
