My 14lb packer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I almost had a heart attack when i paid $3.48/lb for my 14 pound packer, and it was the smallest one in the case, I saw a 22lb one and thought to myself "I don't want to smoke it for 30hrs". So i decided not to inject my brisket like a friend suggested, I'm from Texas and that just seem like sacrilege to me. I put a basic cracked black pepper, sea salt and chili powder rub on it, and went with a mix of 60/20/20 cherry, mesquite and hickory. I started it last night at about 1am and had to open it about 2 hours ago because my neighbor wanted to throw some chicken on there. I have pictures of the beginning and from 2 hours ago (about halfway in).

Approximately 6 hours ago I went inside for like an hour and came back out and the temp had spiked in the smoker to 500°, so if it looks a little charred that's why.

Looking good to me so far. Can't wait to see the final product.

It was stalled at 154 for about 3 hours now, but it finally started moving again

You can cook it at 850 degrees for one minute or five degrees for four days...

If you want a good laugh look that up on YouTube. It's a comedy sketch by Rap Reiplinger...
