You may remember that back around the end of October I announce that I was getting together with another BBQ enthusiasts, Lance, and we would be smoking our asses off in the following month. Well, right around the middle of November, we did just that! Along with some of our good friends, and with the help of some Michter’s Rye and good ‘ol Jack Daniels, we held our first annual Great Smoke Fest! The menu consisted of smoked a brisket, barbecue ribs, barbecue chicken, smoked salmon (VERY yummy), AND we even tried our hand at jerky (while the jerky was very good, it wasn’t Don quality. We’ve learned from our mistakes and our next batch of jerky will be outrageous, we promise).
We recorded about 4 hours of video, so editing was key. I think you will enjoy what we’ve come up with. I want to thank Lance for bringing his video setup and for his outstanding editing job, he’s a pro. Anyone who can make me look AND sound good on video is worth their weight in brisket!
All the recipes used during this session can be found on my blog.
Here is part 1 of the Great Smoke Fest – prepping the brisket. We hope you enjoy watching these videos as much as we did making them!
