My First Smoke

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Well, I finally got a brisket going in my Smoke Vault. First smoke. I sure hope I am doing this right. It's been in almost 5 hours and I just checked...it is showing 125 degrees on the meat thermometer. Does that sound right?

I am ok taking my time doing this. Just want to make sure it sounds like a normal smoke biggrin.gif

Just don't get discouraged when it hits the plateau, just hang in there

Ok, I am waiting for that too. Just seemed to be climbing really slowly. It is looking darn good in there though!

Like balckhawk said, Just keep the temp steady! it's done when it's done, don't try to speed it up. Your doing just fine.

edit: if your lookin' it aint cookin'!

Do I keep the wood chips coming the entire time? Or is there a point I stop adding the chips

Just keep the smoke thin and blue and not billowing. but yea you keep the smoke going. The smoke ring will stop forming at 140º but the smoke flavor will penetrate the whole time.

Keep the smoke coming until you hit 145F. After that, it's ineffective. Please take pics if you can.
