Pricing at Adamson is too high in my opinion.
The brisket was really good. It gives me something to aspire to.

I ended up ordering one platter for 2 for myself as I was off work one day during the week and went by. I ended up eating as much as I could and still had a bunch left over which I ate for dinner. The platter price isn't too bad. You can also order in advance for pickup if you order over $100 of food which helps with skipping the line. I think my ribs are better than theirs but their brisket is the best I have ever had (I also tried brisket from their food truck years back and at the time it was the best brisket I had ever had).

Newfie brisket.
Big ass wax bologna smoked over hickory @ 250 for about 2 1/2 hours.
Smooth and amazing - especially the next day, cut thick, fried and then placed on chemical white bread with yellow mustard.

Agree about their brisket. I don't even want to try smoking my own any more because they make it so much better and I have no idea what the secret is. They also sell whole brisket frozen at $20/lb. I wonder how that tastes when reheated.

I prefer my fried bologna sandwiches on toasted (buttered) white bread with ketchup:)

Those are good...
My partner makes that sometimes (raised out east). But in the oven. And treated like a dinner meal. With some sort of potatoes and veggies on the side. Usually just frozen peas & veggie mix.

Long weekend == Strip Loin

I seasoned overnight using freshly cracked pepper and Himalayan pink salt. Superbly delicious. And yes, the pink salt does make a difference versus regular kosher salt.

Beef ribs are tough. They will respond to 20 min. steaming or pressure cooking before they hit the grill.

This thread is awesome. I just got a wood pellet BBQ on the weekend and I've never used one before. The process is pretty intimidating. Any advice for a newbie? Thinking brisket may be my first challenge.

Brisket should be your test after a good bunch of smokes. Not only is temp important and can be a costly mistake (I did one this weekend 6lb for 50$...it was fantastic though)
Start off slow and easy with pulled pork - cheap and good. Get a good quality thermometer to monitor internal temp (not cook to time).

Exactly the type of advice I was looking for! Thanks. Any recommendations for a thermometer?

I agree with raymondly- pulled pork is the most forgiving meat to start with. This way you can learn how your cooker behaves and have a tasty meal. As for thermometer, you want something like this.

Should try Costco - the brisket is $9.99/kg (~$4.50/lb).

Although pulled pork is good. I'd start with the "cheap and fast" Chicken legs/thighs/wings or even split half chicken first as you can be eating in a hour or so.

After that first cook, try other reasonably fast cooks like Atomic Buffalo turds, Fatties, burgers, prime rib roasts etc. Once you're comfortable with those, move onto longer cooks like brisket or pulled pork. Fast cooks will please most if not all people and no one (ie significant others/family) will be complaining about how long it takes to cook and get eat something. If you try a pulled pork first and you call people over for 6 pm dinner and dinner isn't ready until 9, you got a problem!

Enjoy your pellet cooker.
