Well, I used SmokyOky's method as promised... the brisket was a success! Tender, juicy, flavorful, but just a tad too much smoke. I seared it on the Weber first, then to the smoker.

I used the new batch of Hawaiian woods I ordered a couple weeks ago. A little goes a long way... I started out with 3 chunks added to the coals, but then reduced that to just one. They put out alot of smoke! I was also having some difficulty with my temps spiking, but got that under control with the tuning plates.

All-in-all, it was a successful smoke, although there are no Q-views to prove it... sorry! icon_redface.gif

How'd you like the Guava Piggy? Never tried it but I do plan on ordering some.

I really like the Kiawe. We used that for roasting pigs when I was station at Pearl Harbor many moons ago.
