Hi there. I smoked my first brisket the other day after reading as much as I could from all you experienced smokers out there.
The brisket turned out excellent and cooked somewhat faster than anticipated.
I was prepared for a 15 to 20 hour smoke after reading guidelines of 1-1.5 hrs per pound. After 10 hours the wait was over.
I threw a 15lb full packer on my smoker and kept it pretty close to 250F the whole time.
I had a thought at that point and decided to throw some electronics at the smoker and capture my brisket experience for analysis.
I guess you can call it Q-View.
