The Meatwave

Choose Your Own Meatwave

The end of the Meatwave season has come with a lot of unrealized dreams. Cataloging all that I did not accomplish and trying to decide which of those recipes I should cook up became too daunting of a task, so I'll leave the tough decision making to you.

Meatwave readers and eaters alike can choose this weekend's menu, which is classic barbecue style. The only thing I know must be on the menu is my very first smoked brisket, but the rest falls on your shoulders. Get voting!

Choose 1 from each of the following categories and write your selections in the comments:

  15. Josh I went to start planning the logistics of the Meatwave and realized I made an error putting the smoked turkey on there. The smoker will be full with a brisket, which smokes at 225 degrees, and the turkey would also have to go in, which I smoke at 350 degrees.

    So even though smoke turkey was the winner, I'm going to default to the 2nd most popular choice, baby back ribs.
