Good luck Trav, I have done a lot of flats but never a packer and really need to just jump in and do one. I did find a great point, which I have never seen out here before, that I will try soon. The checkout lady ws all giddy about seeing it and was telling me how to cook brisket in a crock pot...I said thanks, I'll be sure to give that a try. Didn't have the time or the heart to explain SMF to her, LOL.

So, I'm looking forward to your results and lessons learned.

OK, yall had ta wait till the days remodelin work was done, but here be the Q-View!

This is rubbed an ready ta go.

8 Hours a smoke time an a couple hours of rest in the cooler.

Woulda liked more bark an a better smoke ring, I cooked this un on the bottom rack which runs hotter then my top, so it cooked faster then I woulda liked, next time gonna top rack it. Taste however was fantastic! The "Smoke In The Hollar" rub is comin long nicely. Didn't have time ta sear this one, might try it on the next one ta see which way I prefer.

This one was very good flavor wise, so now we will work on the bark some.
