SBX5 was a blast! Sell-out crowd. ABC News crew and Amazon filming. Great smoked meats and amazing side dishes. The kolaches came out perfect. Moongirl played beautiful music. And 1927 Events was a great venue with great cocktails.
Very exciting to have Daniel Vaughn (@BBQsnob) at the event for his book launch, The Prophets of Smoked Meat. No one knows Q like Daniel. In fact, it was his blog that educated me on the nuances of Central Texas BBQ several years ago, and alerted me to the BBQ Summer Camp that I went to last summer that changed my life. So thanks Daniel!
The meat came out nicely with great smoke, a very gorgeous smoke ring and the lean being close to perfection. Still a little work to do on the point (the fatty part) to get the fat to completely render. No one complained but Mr. Vaughn knew. So look out Seattle - it’s only going to get better as I pursue my goal of brisket perfection.
Lots of pics below. SBX6 set for July 4 at Chungee’s in Capitol Hill. Tickets to be announced shortly.
Thanks everyone for enjoying barbecue with us. Can’t wait to see you again!
I got the pork-shredding drill bit and tried it out while Daniel Vaughn (@BBQsnob) was in my backyard getting interviewed by ABC News. Cool, no?
SBX5 SOLD OUT! Daniel Vaughn is coming to Seattle to launch his new book and we have a hungry crowd ready to meat and greet!. http://sbx5.eventbrite.com
I buy my wood from Ray Morris at Cooking Woods near Boeing Field. He’s such a great guy that he donated the wood we used for the St. Martin de Porres homeless shelter smoke this weekend. Thank you Ray!
He has apple of course but also Post Oak, Hickory, Mesquite and Pecan imported from Texas, like I use. I highly recommend him for you smokers out there.
Check it out! http://cookingwoods.net/
