Christmas week review

DEC 20.

The postman hands me a box from Corpus on the same day we leave out for Deep East Texas to spend Christmas with family.

Thanks Sapo. I can't wait to get into this stuff.

DEC 21.

Great day with lots of family.

No cooking but at some point, I gave some thought to what order I wanted to do things.

DEC 22.

Spent the day with family.

That night I broke out my special stash of Wolfe Rub and seasoned up two pork butts for the UDS that I built for my brother back in the summer when we came to visit.

Butts went on around 11:00pm

DEC 23.

Butts were ready for the cooler around noon.

After a four hour rest we were ready for pulled pork sandwiches, slaw and all. My brother Brex fried up some taters and we all had a good meal. The pork was very tender.

Brex was very sceptical about eating slaw on a sandwich but he gave it a go and seemed to enjoy it. My mom on the other hand, has lived in Texas for to many years to be putting slaw on a sandwich.

DEC 24.

Family day. No cooking

After watching a couple of training videos, I was prepared to made some filets for Christmas day.

DEC 25.

Time to prep the beef loin.

I can't think of anything that I would rather eat on Christmas day than filet mignon and ribs.

I trimmed the ribs St. Louis style after they were cooked.

A salad cut with love goes nicely.

DEC 26.

No cooking. How am I going to deal with this brisket that I have in the fridge

Brex and I did spend some quality time together on this day.

DEC 27.

I decided to do the brisket hot and fast rather than overnight because I needed the sleep. I was very suprised at how well it turned out.

Injected with beef broth only and seasoned with Tex Joy bbq seasoning which is a very local salt, pepper, garlic and onion seasoning that contains 1% msg. I dusted it with another round of granulated garlic and fresh cracked pepper before laying it in the drum.

The brisket went on the drum at 9:00 am. I foiled it at 170 and it was ready at about 3:00pm. The UDS ran at 325 for most of the brisket cook.

There was plenty of fire left for a couple of chickens to cook for a few hours.

I think we saved the best for last with that brisket. The simple seasonings on the brisket made it one the best I have turned out.

The chickens weren't bad either.

We left on the 28th, heading back to Jonesboro. Lots of good family and lots of good food.

I hope everyone had as good a Christmas as I did.

Excellent Cliff. Thanks for posting all the pics.
