    Temp Fluctuations

    When smoking "forgiving" things such as pork butts or brisket points, I am less concerned about temp fluctuations.  I will let my smoker go anywhere from 235* to 270* without too much worry.  Should I be more concerned?

    First all night brisket smoke.

    I would check your probe.  5 hrs seems very quick to get to an IT of 203.

    Question: Refridgerate or freeze

    When to separate point from flat for burnt ends

    I feel Jon Russell's BBQ serves up some of the best burnt ends in the KC area. JR's has won Grand Champion twice at the American Royal. They separate the point from flat prior to cooking, rub only and take to desired temp before cubing. Once cubed they are done.
