Picked up my new Pellet Grill/Smoker on Friday, assembled it, burned off the oil and gave it a test run.
All Worked Good, so I ran to SAMS Club for a Brisket, to Break It In.
There's a learning curve to any new smoker, especially Pellet Smoker.
I figured learning with a brisket would be a great way to break it in.
I let the brisket get to 202° and should have pulled it at 195°. It was just starting to get dry, but dumping the Au Jus back in took care of that.
Overall, my 1st run on my New pellet Smoker was a success. Creating smoke in pellet smokers can be challenging. They only produce good smoke at very low temps. I added one of my A-MAZE-N-PELLET-SMOKERS for extra smoke, and it worked well. I have to experiment more!
