    Well wife bought me a bbq pro charcoal drum style smoker for my b-day did a few small smokes but figured today id give another brisket a shot on the charcoal had a tough time getting the temps over 200 for a while after i added meat checking with 2 different thermometers then all of a sudden bam 256 was it due to the meat mass being cold? i want to keep at 225 -230 so it will take a little playing here and there.i didnt take any before pics as i was in a rush since this was supposed to be smoked tuesday but mil fell and broke her neck so was in the hospital for 3 days.I will post pics soon as i go to spritz

    Man I'm really sorry for your MIL and I hope things all work out. But I wouldn't worry with the brisket you have other bussiness thats alittle more important to deal with.
