New bands, new thermometer and a chicken

I hope everybody out there had a Merry Christmas and that you are recovering from all the festivities. This is just a short little post about my day yesterday.

I rubbed it down with mustard and a mix of Fiesta Brisket Seasoning and Dizzy Pig Cow Lick. Normally, I just… Continue reading Brisket, ABTs and the New Flame Boss 100
