Whereas this may not be traditional it is a sure way to cook a consistently good brisket. The recipe was designed using a combination of a Weber Kettle Grill and a standard oven.
Mix all dry ingredients together in a small bowl to create the rub.
Apply dry rub liberally to all sides of brisket. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 48 hours. One-hour prior to cooking, remove brisket from refrigerator and unwrap.
Make a fire using 2 quarts of charcoal briquettes in a pile on one side of a Weber kettle grill.
Wrap 4 - 6 hickory wood chunks in a double sheet of heavy-duty tin foil, and prick at least 6 holes in the top of the foil pouch with a knife tip.
When fire is ready, place tin foil pouch on top of ash covered coals.
Set grill rack in place, and position brisket, fat side up, on side of rack opposite fire. Make sure that both top and bottom grill vents are open. Position holes in lid directly over brisket and cover grill.
Grill/smoke brisket without removing the lid, so that smoke permeates the meat for 2 hours.
Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 300 degrees.
Take brisket off the grill and wrap in a double layer of foil that is well sealed.
Place the brisket on a baking sheet and bake until internal temperature of meat reaches 210 degrees exactly, about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Remove brisket from oven, loosen foil at one end to release the steam, allow to rest for 30 minutes. Drain juices into a bowl and remove fat, then add to your favorite barbecue sauce.
Unwrap brisket and separate the flat cut from the point cut.
Slice thinly across the grain of the meat.
Curried Lamb Kebobs
Slice two of the onions. Heat the oil and fry the sliced onions. Add curry powder, turmeric, chilies, bay leaves, lemon leaves, ginger and coriander and fry gently for a few minutes. Add apricot jam, sugar, vinegar and water and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat. Cut the remaining onion into wedges by cutting down the stem of the onion and then separating the segments. Add the onion segments and apricots to the marinade and let stand until cooled.
Cut the meat into 1" cubes and place into a marinating dish. Pour the cooled marinade over the meat cubes.
Allow meat to marinade at least overnight.
Prepare this marinate at least 6 hours in advance of use to allow
the flavors to develop.
Always marinate meat for 6 -8 hours or overnight.
Once you have removed the meat from the marinade, place the marinade in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Cool marinade slightly, and use to baste during the cooking process.
Mop it on before serving.

Thick layer of mayonnaise
Grated parmesan cheese
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped with salt and fresh ground black pepper

BBQ Ribs on a Weber Kettle Grill
Coat the ribs lightly with olive oil using your hands or a brush. Sprinkle lot of rub on both sides and ends, patting and slapping it firmly into place. The surface of the meat should be completely covered with a layer of rub. Wrap each rib in 2 layers of plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 24
Bank a small amount of coals on one side of the grill and let grill warm up for 20 - 30 minutes. Place a drip pan filled with water on the opposite side of the coals. Try to stabilize the temperature to about 225 - 250 degrees. Soak hickory, mesquite, cherry, apple or other wood chips in a bowl of water for 20 minutes or more.
Unwrap the racks of ribs and cut the racks so that they will fit onto the area of the grill where there are no coals underneath. Remember that the end pieces of any rack of ribs normally dry out during the cooking process, so the less cuts you have to make, the less dry ribs you will have. Put the ribs onto a rib rack, with the thick side up and bone end down. This will allow the small ends to stay moist as the juices and fat that render out of the thick ends will run down each of the rib bones, basting them as they do. Place on the grill over the drip pan. Sprinkle small amounts of the chips over the coals and close the lid. At this point you should keep your vents on the bottom half open and the top vent a quarter open. (You may need to change this around a little, If your fire is too cold open the bottom vents more, and if it is too hot close them off a little. Add more chips every 20 to 30 minutes or as often as desired. You can also soak whole chunks of wood in water, and use these instead of the chips. They will give off smoke for a much longer period, which means that you don't have to open the lid.
Sit back for 4 to 6 hours, watch the smoke rise and drink lots of whatever turns you on. Don't drink so much, that you forget to add wood chips or chunks to the fire, keep the temperature around 225 to 250 degrees (you may need to add preburned charcoal to achieve this), and keep the water pan half full. It is also a good idea to rotate the racks of ribs from time to time so that each rack will have an equal time nearest to the heat source. The ribs are cooked when:
a) You cut one off and taste it and the meat is tender, tasty, smoky, and pulls off the bone (This is undoubtedly the preferred method)
b) You pick a rack of ribs up using tongs to hold it at one end. Then shake the rack and of the rack breaks apart where the skin joins the individual bones together
c) The internal temperature of the meat is around 195 degrees
d) You cannot take it any more and have to eat immediately !!
e) The beer is finnished
Before serving or for the last 10 minutes of cooking, lightly brush each rack with your favorite (preferably homemade) BBQ sauce. Take the ribs off the grill and cut between each bone, brush again with BBQ sauce if desired and serve. Life is good !
Awesome Brownies - By Dusty Jones
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of margarine
1 ½ cup of flour
¼ tsp of salt
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup of cocoa
1 bag of chocolate chips, chunks, morsels or whatever
Melt the margarine. Do it
now so it’s ready when you need it. Beat the hell out of three eggs. I mean,
really make ‘em suffer. Then Thoroughly mix in 2 cups of sugar. Then mix in the
melted margarine (I told you to get it ready). Thoroughly mix in the flour. Then
the salt and vanilla. Then add the cocoa, but make sure all the chucks are
broken up or else you’ll get those damn lumps in the batter that are a pain in
the ass to mix out. Then stir in the chocolate chips, or chunks, or whatever
shape of chocolate you chose. Pour all that into a 9”X9” pan. Bake it (that
means in the oven) at 350F for about a half hour or so. Stick a toothpick in it
when you think it’s done. If the toothpick comes out runny, keep cooking. If
it’s gooey, you’re done. If the brownies are black or on fire, start over, you
