BBQ kickoff season about to begin

Discussion in 'Irrigation' started by FIMCO-MEISTER, May 29, 2010.

  1. Memorial Day and BBQ. Better than Christmas for me. In ancient times while a young pup I was working a job on Memorial Day and the missing plane formation flew over head. Haven't worked Memorial Day since. War sucks. losing our best and brightest sucks even more.

    Can't find a decent rub up here so I'm making my own this year. Used to buy the SALT LICK version from Driftwood, TX
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Salt_Lick

    Found this recipe I'm putting together today.

    Tejas Style Brisket Rub

    1/2 cup paprika
    1/4 cup black pepper, coarsly ground
    3 tablespoons Homemade Chili Powder
    2 tablespoons canning salt
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon ground red pepper (or more, to taste)

    Buying brisket up here is dicey as well. The butcher thought I'd be scared off when he quoted me 2.99/lb for him was garbage meat. 32.00 bucks. i'm going to have to shop around see if I can't find a better source.

    Pull out that grill and get your stuff ready. We'll post pics

    You'd think beef would be cheap in Montana...

  8. didn't get my act together. i'll shop around. lot of cattle here but fattening and processing may be happening elsewhere. sure miss those COSTCO briskets in Dallas. The COSTCO in billings didn't even have brisket out. no hardwood up here to speak of. I've got a bag of hickory chunks. Apple may be my best bet for local wood.

    Here's a beef question I never realized was regional, but does your supermarket sell bone-in chuck roasts and/or steaks? I never realized that all markets don't carry these bargain steaks.
