    Official 2021 BBQ, Smoking, Grilling, Baking and Beer thread

    Was my first time cooking these and was shooting for around 5 hours. Dinner needed to "get done" so I finished them in the oven. Wouldve like to let them rest a little while longer. Ill plan for around 7 hours next time. Also, I didnt know if these would stall like brisket, sure enough they did...

    SWG install

    Thanks @CaptainCannonball . I saw that and it got me thinking, is there anything special about the pipe or fittings...or could I just go buy those parts myself?

    I'm going to be making the switch to salt water soon and have a few questions. Will be installing the Circupool RJ-45. All help is appreciated. 1. With my current control panel, do I need to purchase a separate timer, or will this handle my needs. If it matters, I run my pump 24/7. 2. Looking...

    Couple of smokes over the last month..... Prime Tri Tip with shrimp poppers (mozz, jalapeno, bacon). Made a wet rub (rosemary, thyme, sage w/ olive oil) for the Tri Tip, similar to what youd do for a prime rib roast. St Louis spare ribs smoked for 5 hours (no wrapping)...perfection

    I came across this explanation from another site the other day... There are three kinds of beef ribs you can find at a store: beef back ribs, short ribs, and chuck ribs. Beef back ribs are the equivalent of pork back ribs. They are cut away from the rib-eye, one of the most expensive...

    Sugar Land TX, New Pool Build - looking for suggestions

    Just a hunch, but I dont think many magnolia leaves are going to get picked up by any kind of cleaner...except a net. Those leaves are pretty big and I can imagine them causing some issues with a robot.

    First time build in Georgetown, Tx. Any advice much appreciated!

    Here is our tiered beam with sheer descents. Ive seen other members with a similar set up on free form pools...perhaps they show what they have. Also, get the auto fill. I have one and love it. While the thought of filling the pool up once a week with the water hose may seem like nothing...

    First time build in Georgetown, Tx. Any advice much appreciated!

    If you are wanting a water feature, have you considered a raised beam with either scuppers or sheer descents? Just my opinion, but the rock waterfall you have is minimal and looks out of place, respectfully. Also, a saltwater pool IS a chlorine pool...the difference is how that chlorine is made :)
