Just came across this great forum while searching for ideas for today's brisket smoke. I've really only been doing low temp smoking since fathers day last year when I received a Kamado Joe Classic. Before that I was a Weber guy using a Weber gas grill and a Weber Kettle. The only smoking I did was on an old Brinkman charcoal smoker and it was almost more trouble than it was worth because of the constant attention needed to keep the fire going in it. The Kamado Joe has solved that problem and I now really enjoy smoking meats. I put a 4.5lb brisket flat on a 8:30 this morning at 275deg and the Maverick is set and I shouldn't have to touch it till later when I have decide to foil or not.
This appears to be a great source of information and I'll be checking back often.
