1:30 PM – Added charcoal.
2:00 PM – Pulled Baby Backs wrapped and back on.
2:00 PM - Outside temp 60° Cloudy and damp
2:40 PM – I checked the temp on my brisket, this is something
I hardly ever do, simply because I have cooked so many
I can tell by feel and looks. But the temps were 180 at the
big end (Point) and 190 at the small end (Flat), after 8.5 hours,
3:20 PM – Added a little more charcoal, unwrapped ribs and brisket.
Temps were 196° at the flat and 190° at the point.
4:00 PM – Pulled the Ribs and Beans.
4:15 PM – Pulled the Brisket. Just a little over 10 hours today.
203° at the flat and 212° at the point
(a little higher than I like at the point)
That’s why you just can’t go by time, it was done quicker
than I had expected .
I started out with my temp at 250° but let it ease back to 225° and held
that the rest of the smoke. Used Hickory and a little Pecan.
Also, you guys and gals who have a side burner on you grill its great for starting you chimney.
4:30 PM – Everything resting till supper time. Yum Yum
