Took a vacation day from work to start my Father's "Weekend" Perfect weather - sunny @ 78 degrees

Prepped a 14.5# brisket and two 7# butts using my modified version of Funkmasta South's tri-level technique.. I've got Lawry's, Dizzy Dust (Coarse grind), Kosher salt, black pepper, lemon pepper and some Montreal. Pork butts are similar less on the pepper..

Got a nice fire going in the Klose with oak and a bit of cherry.

more pics to come later

Will you be cooking Hot and Fast and if so what temp and how long do you think it will take?

Thanks guys.

Will you be cooking Hot and Fast and if so what temp and how long do you think it will take?

I got chamber temp up to 275 then put in cold meat and it came down to 230 or so and I let it stay there for an hour or so. I then added a few more splits to bring up temps up...I'm be in the 275-300 range.

I'll take a pic in an hour or so.

Looking good so far! Funk's tri-level high heat is the way to go for briskets IMO. More pics!

Here you go Steph...

Here's a quick pic of the brisket about 30 minutes ago. Still has a while to go to get the color/bark and tenderness but it's getting there. Been running 275-295 deg.

milehigh - yes, I've been working with FMS's rub technique for a while now making some minor adjustments.

still tight..

Not a fan of opening the door too much.. so here's the last pic for now until after they're off the grates and ready to be sliced or pulled into chunks.

Thanks guys..

Butts are done. just under 6 hrs, no foil, no injections, no mops, no spray guns etc. I ripped off a small piece and it was fantastic (though not necessarily as good as Shakira's :wink:).

Brisket is getting real close.

I didn't know Vinny cooked any more! :-P It all looks great!

Did you let the layers of flavor rest at all before the next (ie letting the lowrys meet the meat for a couple hours before hitting it with the s&p)? Just picked up a couple briskets today to cook tomorrow night.

Thanks... sorry for the delay on the brisket pic...I wanted to eat and clean up.

SIDE - just a little rest between the layers but I doubt it was enough time to make any difference.

The cubed point was the shining star.. The flavor was just bursting in my mouth.

Thanks for looking !

nice..I'm also envious of the weather. The heat index here has been about 100-105 the last two weeks. :shock:

Oh yeah baby, mmmm mmmmm. Wheeeew. That was awesome. You got me at "bursting" Although you could of left out the mouth part as it was a total downer. Anybody got a cigarette?

Obviously :heh:

The gold standard for porky goodness - Shakira for a boston butt & Beyonce for a picnic ham - 2:23 mark to end is perfection. Great hip to waist ratios there.
