My Plan .......... Friday night around midnight put it on .......200  and let it go threw the night , check temp threw- out ....

 

THANKS again to all   and hopefully  I'll have a good report with pix !  


Tiki,

Sounds like a good plan, but personally I would go with 225˚ to 240˚ smoker temp.

Also, just in case you didn't know, if you inject it or put a temp probe in it before or at the beginning, you have to get it from 40˚ to 135˚ internal temp (Danger Zone) in no longer than 4 hours, in order for it to be safe to eat.

Many of us who do not inject our butts, briskets, chuckies, etc, also hold off on inserting the temp probe until 3 or 4 hours into the smoke. Then you don't have to worry about the Danger Zone problem.

 

Have a Great & Safe Smoke!!

I'm a bit of a heathen in that I cook hot.

 

So, with brisket I cook fat down (I know heretical) and smoke heavy for about 2 hours. I then check the color. If it's where I want it I foil and cook for about 2 more hours. I then check the IT at the POINT. I'm shooting for 205 at the POINT!! Now, this is the method I used when competing but it works at home by cutting my time down.

 

And when I say hot, I usually cook at 300 or better. This is all based on my stickburner.

 

When using the WMS or other cabinet cooker I'm more conventional and don't worry about foiling until the temp is around 160 or so.

 

YMMV!!

So after hearing all this I hope your going to start MUCH earlier. It's better to get it done earlier than later. It will stay in foil &  towels in a cooler for many hours & still be hot!
