    A couple of years ago I posted Carniverous Maximus, Maxing out the MES.

    To celebrate my daughters 12th birthday we are having a small get together this weekend. Hence "Daughter of Carniverous Maximus"

    My daughter wanted brisket (proud daddy :yahoo:, and I figured I would throw on a shoulder as well.

    The shoulder just went on.

    Running the MES at 245F loaded with cherry chips for the entire smoke.

    Here is the shoulder rubbed down with "Riley's" Seasoning

    The 14.5 lb brisket is still in the fridge sitting. I rubbed it down with my own mixture of equal parts granulated garlic, granulated onion, season salt and fresh ground black pepper.

    Total weight of meat in the MES. 22.5 lbs

    Will post in the Beef forum as well

    A BIG THANKS to all who served our country on this and every Memorial Day

    Just took out the brisket and the shoulder.

    The shoulder smoked for 18 hrs

    The brisket for 15 hrs.

    Had a small hiccup last night, the smoker somehow turned off. When I "re-lit" and the MES said it was at 150F. Set it again and let her go overnight, no issues when I woke-up this am.

    Letting them rest before pulling and making burnt ends

    Here is the shoulder

    Here is the brisket

    Fell right off the bone, not even a morsel for the dog
