Battle of the Rubs, #2

I did two briskets (I know they are going to be considered imaginary briskets because no photos equals no cook). But one had Texas BBQ brisket blend and the other was Wolf Rub Bold. This time it was unanimous. WRB 4, Texas BBQ 0. The comments were that the WRB was spicy and the TBBQ was tangy but too sweet. I wish I could describe tastes better but I think the gin gets in the way.

It's a hard winter up there and they have to bulk up for insulation.

It's -4* right now. It has been below zero at night and single digits during the day for two weeks. It's still better than those poor b*stards that live in Fairbanks where it has been 30 below for a while.

I have been cooking a lot this weekend. Work has been a bear the last two months and I finally found some time to relax, consume some adult beverages, and cook large chunks of meat over fire. It's practically therapeutic.

No doubt.

I mean about being therapeutic.

Not about no pics no cook.
