OK ... So maybe that title got your attention. This is my "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project.
It's just after 1-am Tuesday morning at my house, but since I still haven't gone to bed and woke up yet, it's still Monday for me. I'm gonna start this project tomorrow. A long time ago I made a comment that I couldn't cook brisket for neither love or money. I remember being given all kindsa help. Well ... I've not yet since really made a decent brisket at my house. I've done it just fine at work, but that's not the same. As it is I'm not even gonna make a brisket for this project, just burnt ends. And I'm not even using a point for this, I'll be using a chuck roast. Some of you may know that I've put up a few videos. That was sorta a sleepwalk on the food side for me because they were dishes that I can make in my sleep. NO chance in chances can I do this that way. I've done a bunch of research up until now. That experience was interesting. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos. That was good and bad. Good in that I learned a lot of things. Bad in that pretty much the only constant in all the vids is chuck roast and heat. Almost every guy has some different twitch or habit or preference. They all did use some type of smoker/grill though. I'm outta that club right outta the gate. I don't have a smoker and my grill is gas. I'll be going with the oven. *** If you're gonna ditch me here I do appreciate you reading this far. Anyway ... my objective is to figure out the best way for me, and in a coupla weeks make a vid showing my way to go. I hope to do a much more professional video personality job by then too. I figure it'll probably take me at least three(3) tries to get there because of the different techniques I've seen. What the hey, right ... It's not too costly and it's still BBQ-beef. How tough is that to enjoy?!?
I went out and got all the stuff for "Trial #1" today. That was fun. The freakin' stores are dealing with the collateral damage from the virus. What I mean by that is that they're not really getting all the usual product that they would normally get. Some of my favorite items aren't available. The more I think about it though ... that really shouldn't be a problem. The technique is the key ... not the flavors of the players. I'll still be using someone's favorite rub and sauce.
Anyway ... that's it for now I guess. Come on back tomorrow if you're interested to see the first episode of my project. Feel free to converse at will. I welcome outside thoughts. It's kinda like the play-by-play and color commentary for a ball game.
