Brisket 101


Brisket Class- Coach Beef, The Grand pappy and I headed down to the lovely little town of Shillington Pa to have the light shined upon us by local legend of BBQ Fred Bernardo!!! Have to say it was an enlightening evening. First of all, Fred and his boy Tim were as welcoming as two people can be. Fred may come off as just left of center in his videos, but the man puts on a great show and cooks a great brisket. I learned quite a bit that evening and tried to put it to good use the last two weekends. I was able to obtain a a 13.5 lb packer cut brisket last week, $ 2.58 a lb at the big box store. Fred's recipe and instructions were easy to follow.

HE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE!

When the TrashMan is not training, praying or taking his vitamins he spends his time runnin' wild on the BBQ circuit!  As many of you Q'Believers might already know, the Clark Kent guise of the TrashMan is a mild mannered (OK--Psycho) high school science teacher.  Science and a Refuse Receptacle are a delicious combination in his experimental laboratory located smack dab in the middle of that industrial metropolis called the Burg of Sloat.
ONE WAY IN--ONE WAY OUT.  IF YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND...STAY THE HELL OUT!

MONEY CAN'T BUY SUCCESS...but it helps!

"Money...Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash!" 

The ol' sayin' goes, "Money can't buy success," but in the world of COMPETITION BBQ it certainly HELPS!! Going from Backyard BBQ to Competition BBQ is a HUGE jump.  Now, the initial move is not bad, BUT once the 'proverbial BUG bites' you better have a BANKROLL 

I won't get into the specifics now, but consider, the GranPappy started smokin 'officially' after attending the 2006 Hudson Valley Ribfest (disregard the fact that GranPappy's MOTHER owned a 'ribjoint' called BONES in the late 80's-early 90's).
Since that time, the GranPappy went from cookin' grilled cheese on a Coleman campstove to a Great Outdoor Smoky Mountain to a BACKWOODS.


The PARTY  model -- check out the NEW EXTENDED PARTY!!! Dang....TELL YOU WHAT@!




ANYWAY...I digress!!  Sorry, that's what happens on Friday night when the MRS. PAPPY is not home!!  SO, if you are venturing into Competition BBQ .... you WILL SPEND A LOT OF MONEY!  And you NEED to if you want to improve.  If you REALLY want to get involved with Competition BBQ and you are concerned with $$ -- STAY IN THE BACKYARD!! 


GranPappy's sage advice-->Bottom line - time, money and practice coupled with the desire to SMOKE THE COMPETITON will get you CALLS.  But it AIN'T EASY.
Last night Coach HAPPY PAPPY, SMOKE and the GranPappy drove 2.5 hours to SHILLINGTON, PA. to take a BRISKET CLASS offered by the 'one and only' SMOKIN' GUITAR PLAYER Fred Bernardo!

Fred is the WELL-known smokin' guitar player (NEXT time we want to hang out and JAM!).  The brisket class was informative and Fred was forthright with any questions that were asked.  TIM, Fred's 'partner' (NO!, not THAT kind of partner!!) was helpful and worked to keep Fred on-task. NOT an easy job!

f
FRED...rubbin' his meat!  And it WAS good!


MORE than once the crew from TELLYOUWHATBBQ.com remarked how much they would LOVE to have a place like Fred's Music and Barbecue Supply close to our 'hood!!  We would DEFINITELY be sittiin' round on Saturday morning shootin' the SMOKE!

Fred's Brisket class was money well-spent by a team looking to improve.  TYWBBQ would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in improving his/her brisket.  AND!! the BONUS is...this MAY be the BEST BBQ STORE TellYouWhatBBQ has ever entered.  If only we had more time...and MONEY!


NEXT TIME you are near SHILLINGTON PA...maybe headin' out to CABELAS???  DO yourself a FAVOR and stop by Fred's Music and Barbecue Supply.  Be SURE to ask for CORI (Fred's daughter)- who was patient enough to hang out with SWEATHOGS all night! She will point you in the right direction with a SMILE.

Hey FRED...ROCK ON...we'll see you "On the Road again..UP on the STAGE!"
TELL YOU WHAT style!
YOURS in SMOKE~~

WE'RE BACK!!

The HANGING PIGS have once again secured entry into the KCBS Sam's Club National BBQ tour for 2013.  Our region will be held in Medford, NY on August 8th for the TYWBBQ faithful.
FREE SULLY T-Shirt available at TYWBBQ Team Store
Last year Coach BEEF and Big Green Mendo and the GranPappy of Pork represented us well in our first "National Event" foray pulling us out a 6th place chicken call!  We were a disastrous SWINE cook away from an 8th place overall finish! History will NOT repeat this year!  Confidence is not something lacking at Tell You What BBB Headquarters.  To quote the great Larry Legend...
The Hick from French Lick is as smooth as our BBQ Sauce!

WHICH ONE OF YOU SUM'BITCHES IS SHOOTING FOR SECOND PLACE?

LOVE, PEACE and SMOKE

WINTER SMOKE AND JUMPIN SHIP!

The great weatherman in the sky decided to give us one last winter blast to close out 2012 up here in the booming metroplex of Sloatsburg, NY!  Six inches was the conservative estimate which in our house is perfect BBQ conditions!  The final ICE-Y-Q of 2012 went off without a hitch thanks to my Anti-Snow UDS modifications.
I know what you're saying...why the Dyer Vent on the smoke stack? Listen here rookies, nothing is worse than getting your tent all full of smoke especially when you're 6'2" and that stuff rises and lingers!  My best MOD so far for my Drum is the homemade dolly using an old lid and "borrowed" castors that my neighborhood school was disposing of!  RECYCLE, REDUCE and REUSE!!
