    Is the charcoal debate over?

    Disappointed with my Costco, they don’t have full packers.

    Just got back from a week vaca in central Tx, the wife had a thing in San Antonio. I went to both places in Elgin and all 4 in Lockhart.

    I did not stand in line for five hours to try Franklins.

    I did not have any bad cue.

    Must give props to Two Brothers BBQ in San Antonio, just west of the airport, north side of town. If you are in SA and dont have time for Franklins or Elgin or Lockhart, Two Brothers is legit. If I go back next year i will likely return to Elgin and Two Brothers, skip Lockhart and try a few more places in Austin like Micklethwaits and LA Barbecue.

    I used a cooler for my checked bag, it was 48 pounds with the dry ice removed for the flight home.

    For now maybe you know the routine, in a few more months someone else will come along regurgitating the same old blah blah blah... Although think we made it almost 4 or 5 months this time since the last one.

    You could ask your Costco if they could order one in for you. Or keep a cooler in the truck and when your traveling around stop at one of the others in your area and see if they have them in stock. If they do grab a couple and throw them in the freezer. Or call them and make a trip, worth a shot.

    Passing on the baby back ribs for $6 a rack was a good idea this weekend. Just got back home after driving what would normally be a 2.5 hour round trip that took me 6 hours.

    Snow is supposed to go for 6 more hours. But it is the ice that really sucks and that started Friday evening into Saturday. Son and I counted more than 200 head of fast food on the way back from the train station.

    Funny how it varies; being in a major metro area there are multiple Costco stores. A couple carry only flats, others carry full packers.

    My Nacho's turned out great, ended up having to do more chips/cheese the first two pans went super fast lol.

    Ya use a real good pellet and you will get a better smoke flavor out of them, was night and day when I switched over.

    I'm right there with you. This past winter is the least amount mine has been used during the winter since I got it. The few times I did use it I wasn't pleased with myself freezing. I have the thermal blanket (which I took off last week on our 72 degree day) so when I did the pork for the nachos Saturday I burned a LOT more pellets because it was stupid cold again.

    We've been waiting.

    I've found on pork lately I am using a little less of the original and the pork is coming out with this awesome sweetness with only the tiniest amount of heat on the back end. If I add more the heat dials up which is fine with me but not so much with the wife at times. :rofl:

    Has taken my pork tenderloin game to a whole new level. Went to the local grocery and picked up a few tenderloins this weekend on sale. Normally $14-15 each but with the sale I got them for $4.96 each.

    Good food grade pellet's are made with PRESSURE. You put in a whole tree and squeeze it till a little pellet comes out the other end. :rofl:
