    It was only a 11LB one but hey you have to start some where. Oh and I hit a 3 hour stall now I know what you guy's are talking about. 

    I did the wife a turkey breast tenderloin also.

    Nothing wrong with an 11lb-er.  They cook faster than the larger ones.  Looks good - congrats.

    very true it took 15 hours to hit 190. Wife thought I was crazy I set my alarm at 1 am to get it going.
  4. I hear ya, brother.  First butts I did last year I told my wife a couple of times "I'm gonna have to get up early to get it started", without much response.  When the alarm went off at 3:00 am the conversation was:

    Wife: "It's 3:00, what's wrong?"

    Me: "Nothing's wrong, I told you I would have to get up early"

    W: "This isn't early, it's the middle of the night."

    M: "You want it for dinner, don't you"

    W: "You're nuts.  Someone's going to call the cops when they see you back there with that flashlight strapped to your head"

    [Sigh...]  They just don't get it.  That's my favorite part of the whole process.

    I just busted out loud laughing as I'm reading this...Mrs. Red looks over at me like I've got a loose screw.  She says "what the heck are you laughing at"?  I says "its wouldn't get it."

    Its so funny because I've been there, done that!

    BTW Todg...your brisket looks great...nice first attempt!  [​IMG]

    NP Wyatt and your smoked pepper sticks were  perfect also. Did you do a post yet on them and your smoker you built?

    Too funny, my wife thought the same when I did my first brisket...then she had those wonderful burnt ends...

    Now about every other day or so I get: ''When's the next time you are going to get your a$$ up in the middle of the night and cook me a brisket??''

    Gotta love it!

    Congrats on the brisket Tod, looks real good!
