    I'm in for this one. I can't wait to see the finished product.

  15. In the past I always finished in the oven, but it always becomes shredded beef way too tender. Today I want the slices to stay intact and still be tender.
     
  16. 6.5 hours the thermometer was tough to push in.

  18. Seems to be stalled at 160 , and I couldn't be happier about it. More time to drink beer and it is breaking down internally at that temp. Smoke right on through it baby!
