15 Hour Smoke

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

So I am smoking a brisket from about 9 P.M Saturday to about Noon on Sunday. Longest smoke for me so far, and I was wondering, any advice to keep myself from being bored? I have enough cigars and bourbon, but I have a feeling that wont turn out too well if I just enjoy these two things...So along with my cigars and only 3 glasses of Makers Mark (yeah right!) what else to you guys do for fun? Any and all comments welcome!

No friends , make another fire and put damp wood on it and see if the neighbors call the FD , scratch that... cost too muchth_dunno-1[1].gif.

Well I dont like leaving my smoker. I'm not that confident yet. :) Hey Stan real quick, is it alright if I use a spritz to spray my brisket every once in a while, or do you recommend I leave it alone?

If you really need something to do - chart your temps on both the smoker and the meat

I set a timer for an hour. If I fall asleep I will wake up. Check the fire and set the timer for an hour again. Rinse. Repeat.

If I could find a timer that would wake me that far into the 30-pack?


Good luck and good smoking.
