View Full Version : Poor planning.....crunch time

01-05-2014, 12:52 PM
The wife's family is coming over, I had a brisket, some country ribs, and some wangs planned. Long story short there was a mix up on when they were getting here. So.......14.5 lb brisket went on the drum at 8 am the family will be here at 4pm. Turbo brisket time, drum at about 315*, I just wrapped at 12:30, IT was 175*, decided to crunch it so i could gain some time, color is good. I'm hoping for at least an hour of rest, keep your fingers crossed.

Crutch to the crunch rescue. It will be awesome.

Good luck....but I have a feeling you don't need it and you will be alright.

They are a lively bunch, so I'm using oakridge death dust on the wings, stay tuned, this should be fun

3 pm update: I'm going to make it. Lid was shut till 3, probed very close the first time i stuck it so I'm sticking it in the oven for 15/20 till perfect so I can make room for the wings. Country style ribs are making my mouth water...

The brisket was the favorite, these were next
Wings were good, but I wish I would have went a little heavier on the death dust. It was my first time with it and I played it too safe
