    They've been very responsive today. I guess they are in process of moving buildings/sites so they've been "out". But they said to make sure the fan isnt obstructed by wires and then up the feed rate percentage and retry.

    Still in Dallas or have you left already? If you're out that way, Pecan Lodge is kind of "the" place to go for BBQ in Dallas. I've never had it fresh out the serving window, but I've had it brought over here to Fort Worth a couple of times. It's pretty good. You can get a beef rib as big as your forearm.

    I cut my teeth on a New Braunfels Bandera (same design but owned by a different company years ago) that I did the restoration work on. Fantastic cooker and one I wouldn't hesitate recommending to anyone else. The new ones use a little thinner metal, but still look like they'd do the trick and at $200, it's a great deal.

    Was this the pork shoulder you got from Costco? Their pork shoulder comes in packs of two and their ribs in packs of three.

    Looks GREAT! You nailed the cook. Don't hesitate to load it up with rub if you found the flavor a tad muted. It's a robust chunk of meat ;).

    I like them about 10 minutes before official fall-off-the-bone status. I like just enough so that I can take a bite without all of the meat coming with it, but don't really like the "tug" or "pull" associated with competition style. It's a really fine line and I will always err on the "fall-off-the-bone" side of things.

    mats, flaps, and stickers. Extang solid fold 2.0. Mobtown sliders and full skids. AVS vents
    It was mostly good. Tonight, I took the under parts, chopped it up, added sauted peppers and onions, put some pan juice in, water, and some bbq sauce. Cooked until tender, added sharp cheddar, and put it on a roasted roll. Was really good.

    Last night's ribeye. Mother in law bought it for me from a small butcher near their lake house. Gotta admit, it was a quality chunk of beef.

    That’s awesome man. Wish I could do that. I used to travel a lot for work but that was me spending more time in hotels and on planes than anything. Got old fast.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I’m planning on going up there the last weekend in April and staying for a few days.

    This pork shoulder came from a local grocery store. Mom does all the shopping, and when I noticed that she grabbed a boneless shoulder I thought nothing of it, since it was still at 11 pounds or so. Neither of us noticed that it was two pieces of meat packed together until we opened the wrapper, though.

    As a side note, I need to get more non-spicy rub from you sometime soon. Everyone call your political representatives and tell them to work out this budget issue so that I get paid and by more Pitfaced.

    Let's start planning. What does March 23rd look like for you? I'm planning a block party of sorts.

    It was! It's about the only way I do steaks anymore, but especially on thick cuts. This was about 2" thick.
