    Smoker Questions

    I noticed that in that example he smoked the roast first before cubing, and you said you already cubed. I'm not sure that makes a big difference. He also did pork belly burnt ends in a similar fashion, but those he cubed first. The process was roughly the same. I think you use the IT as a...

    Jason Essex Is a CYCLONE!

    I think I agree with your premise. First let's say that having speed is preferable to not. The headline number of a great 40-time carries some weight, probably too much. However I think it's been shown to have little correlation to success in football at a particular position, even positions...

    Jason Essex Is a CYCLONE!

    Smoker Questions

And yes, good call to remember to 'wash it off' before you season and cook. Other than that I season everything right before I put...

    ISU Football History in One Chart

    Eastern Iowa Beer Tiers

    My local craft beer store FINALLY got a new shipment from Adventurous Brewing today. Sounded like their truck had been around the region so you might want to check on your favorite spots in the next couple of days. Several new offerings, mostly seen on their website. I picked up a few...

    ISU Football History in One Chart

    I could never understand why Rhoads could never seem to figure out how to recruit and develop Linemen in the middle of Iowa. Probably the most frustrating thing for me about his tenure.

    Smoker Questions

    Very interesting. Usually I don't trim a whole brisket at all, but to each their own. $5/lb for a packer, yikes! That just seems crazy.
