I was really worried about the 2 briskets, both were flats, 3.5 pounder and 3.75 pounder. The heavier of the two made 160 in about 3 hours (thats the one I was worried about because it got to 160 that quick, I foiled it, added some sauce and drove on. The lighter one took another hour to hit 160, foiled, sauced same as the other. My wifes Thermo died (in the bigger one) and I was using the MES one in the other. The smaller one was taking longer so I just said screw it I'll pull both when the MES thermo reads 200. That occurred around 3:15pm so the total time for both was 7:00am - 3:15pm. I wrapped em in towels and threw them in the cooler we cut the 3.5 pounder at 5:00pm and the 3.75 pounder at 5:30pm. The 3.5 pounder was great and the 3.75 pounder was really great (it had a better fat blanket out of the package in my opinion). My dad loved it as well as the Corn and stuffed Jalepenos! Here's the promised pics
