  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2003 Fiesta Bowl, everything else pales in comparison. That season and especially the way it ended was incredible. I had an awesome rush for two to three weeks after that game, and it was far and away the greatest sports-related moment of my life.

Smith is backing up both Bell and Powell, so he's going to be on the field a lot anyway whether he's a starter or not.

Yes it does seem random.  Right now it makes the comments a jumbled mess.

Agreed, it'd be nice to have a setting in our account we can check, a "View all comments" site-wide.

1995 Nebraska is a class of its own.  No other team really compares.  They DESTROYED teams, with an average margin of victory over 38ppg, including a 31ppg margin of victory over top 10 opponents.  They never trailed after the second quarter of any game.

Four victories over top 10 team during the season, as well as four victories over teams that finished the season in the top ten.

They averaged 400ypg.  Rushing.

Their closest game was a 14 point win, do to giving up some garbage time points only.  Against a top 10 opponent.

Oh, and they prison raped an undefeated SEC team in Steve Spurrier's Florida, 62-24.  Nebraska racked up 524 rushing in the "contest," as they cemented their claim as the greatest college football team of all time.

I have used many of Meathead's recipes, including his Big Bad Beef Rub on briskets.  While excellent, I prefer a straight Dalmatian rub of 50% kosher salt and 50% course ground black pepper.  Sometimes I'll even inject with Butcher's or Kosmo, but for the most part I keep the seasonings pretty vanilla. 

For the last several years, I've gotten most of my packers from Costco.  The newer Easton location usually carries US Prime grade whole packer briskets, at prices that are simply unbeatable.  Starting with a top shelf piece of meat should not be underestimated.

Yes!

A good whole packer brisket will resemble a meteorite when pulled out of the smoker.  You don't usually find whole packer briskets at GE or Kroger.  A whole one has two muscles, the flat and the point, which are very different.  Most grocery stores only sell the flat portion.  The point is more moist and tender, and is what burnt ends are made from.

Generally, after every couple of cooks, depends what I'm smoking.  There's well over 24hrs of burn time on 1 firebox load of charcoal & wood chunks.(assuming a 225F to 250F cook)  Being insulated, it doesn't burn a ton of fuel.
