Parents went to the ND at OSU game in 1995 when I was five, parents left me at my Uncle's. My dad told me who to root for before he left, my uncle and cousins were ND fans, they couldn't sway me and I puked on their couch for them trying, and OSU won. I don't really remember a whole lot about OSU football until their National Championship season when I attended their games against Cincinnati and Penn St.

Great series. Excited to see where a number of schools fall, Moeller, St. X, Elder, Centerville, HH Wayne, Colerain, Middletown, St. Ignatius, St. Ed, Glenville.

How are schools like that split going to be scored? Is Lakota or Pickerington going to be one high school for this?

Should definitely help him get to his spots sooner both defensively and offensively. He looked like he was starting to develop a nice jump shot last year too, pretty good from 3 for a big man. He'll need to develop a  good turnaround jumper and a few moves going to the basket if he wants to make it as a pro.

Thank you, haven’t bought the meat yet but I intend to buy a full packet as I like the fattier point part of the brisket. I think I might get the butcher paper that NorCal recommended as I prefer a nice bark and don’t want it to come out seeming steamed. I’ll have to look carefully for good marbling so I don’t have it too dry.

The BBQ was better than the golf haha, but getting out is nice. The butt really gained temp fast after the wrap.. I wanted to get it off at 195 but it was 200 when I pulled it. It was a hit. Going to add a second smoke tube next time, it has smoke flavor but the color was lacking a bit. Just had a sandwich of leftovers for lunch, seemed almost more flavorful today.

A-maze-n, it works but the 12inch needs to be filled a few times during a smoke, metal tongs and careful not to let your filling hand touch the metal. The opening to fill is small so it can be a little tedious.. when it’s cold I just use it to scoop the pellets out of the bag. They offer an adjustable length tube and also mesh mazes that allow for long smoke time without refilling.

Very nice smoke ring. My butt is on. I have a friend who will be watching it while I golf. The rub I made already wowed him.

Kosher salt, applewood smoked salt, black pepper, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, smoked chipotle pepper, chili powder, cumin, apple cider vinegar powder, and beetroot powder.

Smoking my first butt tomorrow, on a gas grill with a smoke tube. Made SC mustard sauce and NC vinegar sauce, making the rub tonight. 

9 lbs. going to wrap once I have a good bark and hitting about 160.

Any tips on how hard I can go after wrapping? Was thinking about 275-300. Going to golf 9 across the street after wrapping.

Completely different region but I had smoked elk sausage in Montana a couple days ago.. it was phenomenal.

Have you been to Pontiac in OTR?. love their brisket and smoked wings.

Comment 23 Jun 2019

Those look killer. I also like Stubbs saucesz

Comment 22 Jun 2019

Wonder how sore he is. Pirates must’ve loved that.

Comment 22 Jun 2019

Want to see Castillo be more aggressive today.. stuff is too nasty not to throw strikes. Hopefully he pitches like he’s capable of and we can lock up the series today.

Comment 21 Jun 2019

Iglesias looked better Tuesday than he did Monday. Lorenzen has gas. Bullpen should be solid all year. I do wonder if Cody Reed and Lucas Simms will get a chance. 

Comment 21 Jun 2019

I’m doing much better thank you.

Comment 21 Jun 2019

Cooking in plastic weirds me out. I either start my steaks in the oven and finish on cast iron once the internal temp is about 105 or do the same thing on the grill but just indirect then over the flame to finish. Aka reverse sear... works pretty darn well. I know the sous vide makes it pretty damn fool proof though.

Comment 21 Jun 2019

Another Big win last night, would love to pick up two more vs the brew crew. Gray vs Anderson looks pretty even to me. Castillo tomorrow is a must win.

Comment 20 Jun 2019

Big series vs the Brewers.. a great chance to climb way up in the division.

Spare ribs cuts St. Louis style. Rubbed and wrapped in Saran Wrap for 2 days in the fridge, membrane removed. Used an amaz-en smoke tube of applewood pellets to smoke on the gas grill. 275 for about 2.5 hours spraying with apple juice / apple cider vinegar. Then wrapped meat side down in brown sugar and butter. About 1 hour. Finished up glazing in a sweet bbq sauce. Turned out great, it’s great for someone who doesn’t want to invest in a smoker but still wants to smoke; had a nice smoke ring and smoke flavor
