1st Brisket on My New Pellet Smoker - Heavy Q-View! - Page 3

Looks awesome, Todd!  I'm only bummed that I didn't realize you were almost a neighbor before mail-ordering my AMNPS - I probably could've picked one up on the way home from work!

Nice, it looks delicious!.. One question I have is about the amount of pellets used to get through an entire brisket  

Right now I use a bradley digital smoker. It is nice because it has a heat element for long brisket type smokes, but its briquette feeder never works correctly and wastes wood which gets expensive. So thinking about going to a Pellet smoker. 

With the traeger, rec-tec or camp chef smokers all seem to burn 1-2lbs per hour. But for a long 18hr brisket it seems like I will have to continue to use pellets the whole time to keep the heat in range over over 200 which will mean I am using almost a 20-40lb bag depending on the time year per smoke. This is even more expensive than the bradley seems even with the wasted briquette. IS this correct or is there something I am missing?

From what I've read about the Rec Tec, it's roughly 1lb per hour (more or less depending on cooking temp and air temp).  As a brisket would be low heat, likely under 1lb per hour.
