Put chicken on grill bone side down, weighted with bricks. Cooked until done flipping once at about 17 minutes.

Re: The BBQ Thread

This thread just made me sad, I had a hamburger for dinner. But I got some ideas for Friday.

Re: The BBQ Thread

What's the advantage of cooking a chicken that way? Flattens it out for more even cooking and gets a crispier skin?

Re: The BBQ Thread

Yeah. Pretty much what you said plus it cooks much faster and the texture of the meat is firmer. The bricks keep the bird nice and hot while it rests, too.

Re: The BBQ Thread

BBQ is my favorite part of living in Austin. There are 2 BBQ places within 2 miles of my house, both are really good. Ordering meat by the pound ftw.

Re: The BBQ Thread

I live near UT in Austin and really like Ruby's at 29th and Guadalupe a lot. Last year one of my girlfriend's oldest friends came to town and wanted to go out to Lockhart. Drove all the way there during rush hour and she wanted to go to Blacks, (I had never been). It was bad. Not just mediocre, but really bad.

Austin BBQ is mostly mediocre, what are these 2 really good spots you're talking about? Franklin's, is great but seriously Ruby's/Stubbs/IW/rudys are weak, by CenTex standards.

Re: The BBQ Thread

Woke up at 6:30am today to drive out to Lexington, Texas with my girlfriend to go to Snow's. Brisket was good not quite as tender as I like it. Pork not so great honestly, but the jalepeno sausage is awesome. Potato salad very good too...

Re: The BBQ Thread

Ok I moved to Oklahoma City from CA. I've been to Earl's Rib Palace, Billy Sims BBQ, and a little shack called Larrys Rib Pit in Del City.

Earl's-was pretty good. Had no idea the guy was Elvis' private chef lol (according to him). Had the pulled pork sandwich, which was good. Not omg amazing, but good.

Billy Sims-meh. Had the chicken, don't remember what else I had with it. Probably won't go back.

Larrys Rib Pit-only went there once. Its small, and they have a good lunch special. The one time was good, but again not amazing. Had pulled pork also.

Anyone have any suggestions for really good BBQ in Oklahoma City?

I'm from Ohio so my BBQ tastes are very noobish. I go to Green Mesquite the most because of it's proximity, also been to Artz on Lamar and it was solid I thought.

In regional terms you would think OKC would be pretty good for BBQ what with the proximity to TX and KC. I lived there for a couple years and that was not my experience at all. The only place I would have said was legitimately good was a BBQ shack in the Buy for Less @ Council & NW Expwy. YMMV, haven't been there in a while.

Re: The BBQ Thread

Here's one pic from this past weekend's Big Apple BBQ Block Party in New York City. We cooked 2500 pounds of brisket and served over 10,000 plates over 2 days.

1250 lbs of brisket in the cooker

^ holy freakin' moly, SDP. How much fuel do you need to cook all that stuff? Were you using gas?

This was my experience too. Not just mediocre, but literally some of the worst BBQ I've ever had in Central Texas. They must be good at least some of the time, but I think they are resting on their laurels from the past.

txdome, you're really painting with too broad a brush there by disparaging all BBQ in Austin.

Aside from Franklin's, 2 other places I like in town are Sam's and Mann's though I wouldn't go to Sam's after its dark.

Never made it past Kreutz Market and Smitty's when I was in Lockhart. Just too stuffed. Liked the Brisket at Kreutz but preferred the Sausage and smoked pork chop at Smitty's.

That pit was a wood burner - we burned about 800 lbs of wood all weekend.

Re: The BBQ Thread

Wow what a great thread and thanks to all for the yummy photos.

I don't rub my ribs...I wet marinade them with all dry spices added to some molasses, fresh garlic,vinegar,olive oil for overnite in the fridge, then about 3 hours of hickory smoke.

Pretty big hit up here in Alberta.

Anyone else do this? (I don't rub my chicken either)

Brisket tips please? It's definitely been the biggest challenge to smoke. It seems like we vary between not enough time - tougher than we'd like, or too much time - turns into a brick.
