    6th Annual SMF Carolinas Smokers Gathering (May 19, 20 and 21, 2017) WITH PICS

    This would be a first for me - I already have plans to see Brad Paisley on the 20th though, so I might not be able to make it for the whole time, but I would love to meet everyone so hopefully, I'll be able to make it.

    Brisket help for a newbie- way too dry

    I would also throw in that you cooked at too low a temp for too long.  I did a 12 lb brisket at christmas for the fam and it cooked to an IT of 200 in about 8 hours - it was tender, juicy, and had a great smoke ring.  But I cooked at 275 for the first 4 hours, 250 for the last 4 ... so it cooked...

    A novice wanting any and all advice

    I'm with schlotz - I've cooked plenty of butts at the 240 range and there's no reason why, if you keep your temps consistent, that after 19 hours - your butt should have been a smoldering pile of char.  One thing most newbs don't know about is what's called the "Plateau" - whereby after a few...

    Old Country BBQ Pits Over and Under Smoker

    Newbie here - I've had my Over-Under since 2014, so mine is a first generation one and I love it.  I wish I had the rolled lids like the new one, but I highly recommend this smoker for the serious home smoker.  I've done up to 4, 12 lb butts on it, 6 racks of ribs, 60 Jalapeno poppers, 36 ears...
