OK here goes.
I got up at 4:56 this AM figuring I had plenty of time to get things going and have a small 8ish pound brisket done for dinner. A very small full packer.
It should be on by 6 at the latest and have 12 hours till dinner.
The wife postponed from yesterday to today with my encouragement due to the weather forecast for this weekend. As usual they were wrong Saturday was hot but no rain and today its around fifty and pouring down rain but I'm ready. They are saying it will stop raining around 2:00 this afternoon "fingers crossed"
So far the only thing to go wrong is I got it on a little later than I thought 6:40 AM
Pictures and updates to come.
