Chickens taste better when cooked whole. Pickles taste better cut. Sandwiches taste better cut and bitten from inside. Meat tastes better sliced against grain.

I just moved to a second floor apartment but have negotiated the right to keep my BBQs 8) Can I use a infrared thermometer to check the temp of the grill from a window? How reliable would that be? Should I just splurge for a bluetooth thermometer instead?
How can you check the interior temperature with an infrared? :o
Admit it, you just want another cool toy  ;)

I use a maverick remote thermometer when I smoke on the Kamado grill. They work great. Separate probe for the grill temp and the meat temp.

For internal temp I have a probe that has a remote that beeps.

anyone have a suggestion of something to attach to my grill to hang the tools? For some reason it doesn't have hooks on the outside...

Just had a 2 pound second cut brisket tonight. Fantastic!



Lathered it up in mustard and big bad beef rub.
On the ol' dependable weber kettle for about 3 hours to get the temp up to 140. I used the minion method and some hickory wood chips.
I wrapped it up tight in some heavy duty aluminum foil, poured in a little light beer, and finished it in the oven at about 280. Tried something new today. When the internal temp hit 203, I unwrapped it and blasted it in the broiler for about 7 minutes and dehydrated the bark. Holy cow it was amazing! Served with some homemade BBQ sauce and cole slaw.

That looks excellent. I see you made the BBQ sauce.

How is it?

Thanks!
Sauce was really good. Next time I would cut down on the vinegar a little. A little too tart for me.
