We’ve lit the first chimney of the weekend, tunes are playing, it’s not raining .. and we’re about to cook some sausages!! Bring it on grillstock!
We’re in DrBBQ’s cook’s meeting. Shock news is that the competition boxes are a bit smaller than the KCBS regulation 9″x9″ size. We’ve had a good 10 minute discussion on that so far. Will Lap be able to fit his 7 ribs in the box?! Find out tomorrow at 3pm. Now we’re talking garnish! Can you put a pickle in the box? Can you put a sprig of rosemary? (yes)
A few questions I want to answer with today’s practice:
- how does brisket cooked without the “Texas crutch” compare with foiled brisket?
- can I cook a 3kg brisket in under 10 hours this way?
- how does Lap’s smoked andouille work with beans?
- does adding coffee to the rub improve it?
280g pinto beans, soaked overnight
1 large onion
1/2 green pepper
So my killer, secret ingredient here is Lap’s smoked andouille links … and it’s only a secret because he won’t tell me the recipe! I got some chipotle ketchup from Man-food.co.uk and bunged in a load for heat.
3.1kg- very fatty
