This is one great reason to love long smokes ! TBS & beer..... How can life be better ? biggrin.gif

0120 - beef - 165°; cooker - 251°....

Chef - possibly hypothermic. Same clothes I wear when it's 48° in March, but they feel a lot warmer then.

0610 - It appears as soon as the chef stalled out on the couch, so did the meat. Meat - 167°; cooker - 226° Coals still look pretty good, but I'll reload with a chimney of pre-lit KBB.

0800 - hit 190° IT. Toothpick test: point = butter; flat = still a little tough.

First time I opened the lid in almost 12 hours. Looking real good!

1010 - this one looks like it's gonna go the distance. Guess it's a good thing it rained. Dampened my enthusiasm to go to the bbq competition in Scranton today.

Meat - 192°; cooker - steady at 242°

1210 - still stalled...

Meat - 191°; cooker - 228°

I thought this might be done early. Might actually turn out to be a pregame snack instead of late lunch. Patience...

Finally probed where I like it at 205°

Give it a little rest and then cube up the burnt ends and chop the flat for sandwiches.

Did you sat burnt ends? I'm on my way;). Nice looking brisket it's barkoliciouse.

A few finished product pictures... Very moist, almost falling apart. Must have been good, there's enough meat for about one sandwich left over.



Burnt ends got devoured by halftime



Smoked 8 dozen of wings while the brisket was resting. Every plate I saw looked like this.



After almost 24 hours straight of smoking, I'm beat. Going to clean things up a bit and then park my butt on the couch for some NFL football.
