Drought conditions in Texas resulted in a burn ban. For that reason, I haven't been able to Q a brisket, butt, or a slab of babybacks since last spring. At least I am permitted to use my gas grill, so I grill steaks, chops, burgers, fish, pork tenderloin, and vegetables on it. Grilled food is great, but it's not barbecue as you guys know. My wife bought a butt recently that I rubbed and she cooked in the oven to the pulled pork stage, and although it wasn't barbecue, it was pretty dang good. Years ago, before I started smoking, we used to cook ribs in the oven and then apply sauce and finish them on the gas grill; guess I could do that again. If anyone has an idea about how I could cook a brisket in the oven and/or on the gas grill that would resemble a barbecued brisket, I'd appreciate a reply. This is the first time in at least 15 years that I haven't constantly had brisket in the frig or freezer for sandwiches.
