Looks like to me that you definitely have your chit together. Great smoker, outstanding toys and the finest help that can be had at any price. What a sweet heart! And by the way, I really like CS's approach to things. I think he probably has it together as well. (Keeps her focused on the small ........) right on, right on, right on. Got to keep that focus. Keeps them out of the other stuff.
I'm thinking of an overnighter. I spotted some fine briskets today and I'm seriously considering a weekend with the smoker ... that's just so peaceful.... a few cold ones, the smell of hickory smoke, cool air, good music, mmmmm. By the way, not trying to change the thread but what are your thoughts of a packer brisket vs the flat. I'm thinking of the flat in terms of less fat, even cooking time easier to handle .... what say ye??
