    7:00, and after 8:30 you might be in danger, but they'll tell you if so when they come outside to take orders, which will be a long while later.

    ^^Probably to prevent burning of that edge of the flat. All are facing the fire box.

    Just a guess.

    The foil is actually away from the fire box, same way any free born American would cook a brisket.

    And yes, I kinda was there for smoker tips. Turns out I kinda know one of the assistant managers and she gave us the grand tour. Didn't take near enough pics, especially of the kick ass wood fired rotisserie they cook the ribs on.

    So, deckle towards the heat, fat cap down. A periodic spritz with beef stock until the stall, then wrapped in pink butchers paper until probe tender (198-205), then off the pit? I'm learning, and you guys are helping.

    At our BBQ restaurant we had when I was growing up, we had two large rotisseries and everything went on them. Brisket, ribs, chicken, sausage. It made consistency a lot easier.

    Deckle is fat and cartilage underneath the side opposite of the fat cap (underneath the flat).. 90% of the briskets you buy will have it removed during processing. You can spritz with whatever you want. Franklin SAYS he only uses apple cider vinegar but I don't believe him. And don't overdue the spritzing. You want to open the lid as little as possible, especially during the first few hours of the cook.

    I've also noticed Aaron keeps un-split, un-burned logs in the cook chamber pretty close to the firebox as a barrier between the meat and the firebox. Anyone ever done this? Is this to protect the meat or is there any flavor benefit to having them in there?

    It might protect the meat some, but another benefit is that if the wood is already hot before it actually goes in the fire, it lights quicker and cleaner. I don't tend to mess around much on the back side of my fire, but I do stack my next few splits on the lid of the firebox to get them hotter before they go on the fire.

    I do that too. or if the wood is damp.. but he does it with un-split logs and they stay in there. I'd like to try it but my pit is too small.

    Thank you. I've always heard the point referred to as the deckle. Now, this is regarding the Franklin cook. I've only done fat side up, trimmed, until fork/probe/toothpick tender. Again, always at around 200, or so. I've never wrapped. I will be trying the Franklin method on my next cook, glad to get feedback from you guys.

    Yeah, I suppose it might help. My pit has a large angled steel baffle between the firebox and the cooking chamber, so I don't much of a hot spot next to the firebox. But if you do, it might make a difference.

    Yeah, that was cajunfail. I've been on a WSM too long now and got it backwards. I'm sticking with the foil to prevent overly burnt flat ends angle though.

    Agreed. That one corner has a tendency to get crusty and curl up.

    Aaron Franklin's first-time ever food festival finally has set dates and a name. Hot Luck will take over Austin from Thursday, May 18 through Sunday, May 21, as reported by Austin 360.

    Casual and fun are the key themes of Hot Luck. Franklin emphasized the "interactive" appeal of it, "super DIY, real hands-on kind of stuff,” as he told Eater previously. All involved chefs are there to "hang out, drink beer, and have a good time” with guests.

    Helping out Franklin are festival vets James Moody (of the former Fun Fun Fun fest) and Mike Thelin, cofounder of Portland's food-focused Feast. Moody wants Hot Luck to run like "the best-run tailgate" ever.

    During those four days, 35 chefs who are close with Franklin will cook up food across eight to ten spots in Austin. Yes, barbecue will be involved, but Franklin teased that there might only be one smoked meats person on the lineup.

    As it is Austin, live music is involved though there are no further details available on that front. Guests will be able to buy individual tickets to events, as well as overall festival passes. Tickets are expected to go on sale in late February.

  • #7827
    One of my bosses is leaving for a better career opportunity and bought everyone under him Franklin at my urging. Preorder was simple and efficient. 21 pounds of meat and a tray of each side.

    Line was not long at all today. Left at 11:15 with the order and the end of the line was near the ramp.

    Line at 10:45


    The meat...brisket, ribs and turkey.



    Forgot to take a pic of my first plate, so second will have to do.

    A buddy and I will be down in Austin next weekend and are thinking of trying to get some Franklin on Sunday. However, we're not looking to do the full-on wait in line for hours thing and are thinking of potentially going by later to see if we can luck into the "end of the day" shorter line.

    I know that the selection becomes more limited then but I'm wondering if there is any general consensus on when is the right time to try that (on a Sunday) and what the line/wait may be then. Our thought is if it works out, great but if not, no big deal and we'll go elsewhere. Just trying to figure out when would be about the latest it would make sense to even try it. TIA

    Yep. It is possible on a weekday (I've done it) but I doubt there's a chance of that happening on the weekend.

  • #7831
    I went by yesterday (Wednesday) at 1:30 and the line was inside the building. They were out of ribs and pulled pork. I got two sausages and a half pound of brisket to eat there, and a full brisket to take home. They were out of pie as well.

    That's very similar to the late weekday experiences I've had. Line inside the door or barely outside and the only thing they've been out of has been pulled pork... which I never order anyway. That has been with getting there ~1:30-1:45.

    "The Franklins have not settled on a final price, but want it to be competitively priced and expect it might cost around the price of two XL Big Green Eggs."

    So, about $2400-2500 which compares to a Klose Pit like this one:

    For the bolt together model or the fully welded? I'll take a look, but I'm in market for lonestargrillz quality.

    For the money, LSG is a damn good pit. And that's not a knock. I loved mine and it was significantly cheaper than a Gator or Klose with more features

    I've looked at them a while. And remember your trailer posts. I am convinced they have a strong value position.

    There's probably already a huge line of people waiting to buy the pits.

    I've been looking at LSG also. Believe I'm going to get a 24x40 in the next few months with the 1/2" firebox upgrade. I think I should be able to do at least 4 briskets pretty easily on it. They seem to be the best combo of quality and price.

    If you go down this road, interested if we can negotiate a quantity buy at discount. Maybe two pits doesn't do it, but maybe another shagger interested in trying to shave a few hundred off. I'm on same time table.

    I called a month or so ago with a few questions and they told me then that they're running 4 months behind right now. Not sure if they will be interested in discounts if they're that busy.

    Don't cheat yourself of those 8". It makes a huge difference.

    The problem is that their 48" model comes standard with two doors and with the slide out racks, you really don't gain more than a couple of inches over the 40. You can upgrade to a single lid, but it's well over a $1,000 more. The 48 would also be pushing it for the slab I bbq on. It's attached to a shed that I roll my smoker out of on to and it would be a tight fit.

    Tight fit with 8"? Duh....

    But honestly, the advantage to two doors? Less heat loss when you are wrangling proteins. Disadvantage? To to wrangle a piglet onto the racks. Which you ain't doing in a 40" chamber. And its not just a few extra inches. its 6"x18" and 6"x15" (best I recall the depth of the racks on those pits). That said, if you don't have the space for a 48" then roll with the 40"

    Maybe my math was off when I was figuring out the dimensions of the racks. I was guesstimating. The lady I talked to when I called didn't know very much. Every question I had, she had to go ask someone to get an answer for it. If I position the pit on the slab so that the doors face my back porch, the firebox is next to the shed. The 48" would put it a little too close to the wooden doors of the shed for my comfort. I could fix that by adding a row of pavers on the end of the slab to get it further away from the doors though I suppose.

    What is the advantage of an offset vertical smoker versus those insulated cabinets? Seems like the same pros and cons as far as the cooking area, but the cabinet should be way more efficient at holding temps since its insulated.

    I have the LSG insulated cabinet and love it. It is the lazy man's kind of smoking. I have had smokers from crappy to trailer and finally went this route with my last purchase so I didn't have to tend to a fire.

    How long will it hold temp unattended, and how often do you have to load more wood?
