Still looks absolutely delicious though!
And that fatty looks marvelous too!
^^^oh YEAH.... what he said^^^
Awesome lookin' munchies there. Beautiful, bright smoke ring and black, crusty-looking bark on brisket and juicy, red-rimmed slices with ooey, gooey cheese dripping from the fatty.... Mmmmhmmm I'd hit ALL that!
