[Sounds great potlatch!]

And tender. Nothing worse than brisket that isn’t tender.

I don't know if you can find green papayas there, but nothing is a better tenderizer than grated green papaya in the BBQ sauce. Does the trick and doesn't impart any noticeable flavor.

Thank you all for all the kind words, and, yes bob, gas grills are great for the quick steak and burgers, but, ya needs to get a wood burner for the ribs and brisket. Speaking of ribs, I will be doing a special on those later on this month or the first part of December.

Haven’t ever tried papaya. Used to cook several brisket on the pit for large parties.

After so many hours I would wrap each in heavy duty foil and let them sit on the grill for another hour or so. Always had the best brisket, people raved.

Never stand in the way of success...but green papaya is a great tenderizer. Don't pick up a ripe papaya because the sugars will flavor the meat.

Over here we use green papaya as a vegetable too in a chicken soup called Tinola by the Filipinos. Cheap, quick to fix and tasty.

Anyone up for an easy Kalua pig method?

We used to wrap fish in banana leaves and bury them in beach sand and build a fire over them

Good eats!

I am right with you on the MSG/Accent/flavor enhancers. It is nothing but a crutch for people who need help with their cooking skills. So stop using it ya’ll!

As a North Carolinian I reject your premise. It’s just that we know that Eastern North Carolina barbecue is God’s ‘cue. We love the other meats that are grilled and smoked...they’re just not “barbecue.”

Barbecue heathens are not be faulted simply because they were raised wrong or just didn’t know. We forgive you.

Yankees, on the other hand, who think that anything cooked on a grill is barbecue are...well...to be pitied and shunned.

at family get togethers we have bean bombs....put a can of unopened pork & beans in the fire, everyone waits expectently and after a while the can blows up and to a height of about 25 feet. If anyone can catch it without dropping it, they get a healthy round of applause, if they drop it, its boooo time..GG

Eastforker,

I just lathered on a wet rub like you made back in your photos from 2008. I’m gonna start cooking my brisket around 6:00 AM tomorrow for a 3:00 PM Christmas dinner.

This is the third one I’ll make following you’re very illustrative guide. The other two were—as you said—6 pounds of heaven!

Thank you once again, for what has become a annual feast at my home, and wishing you a very, Merry Christmas!
