    Why does this happen

    Thanks everyone for your advice and tips. Thermometers were accurate. After I wrapped the Brisket, I put it in an oven at 225 and it went from 170 - 203 in about 2 hours. Since I was making it for a day on the lake for the 4th, I immediately threw it in the fridge. Lake day morning I was up...

    Why does this happen

    Good idea. I have two probes in it from a digital thermometer, but I should check the grate temp.

    Why does this happen

    I constantly see videos of guys putting their smoker between 225 and 250 degrees and they smoke their brisket for something like 8 - 10 hours before they take it off to wrap it. They say to get the meat to between 165 and 180 degrees. Well, I've got a 13 lb Brisket I put on the smoker at 10:30...

    Technical question about wrapping

    Watching. I wouldn't poke a hole, the fat may start a flare-up and burn your meat to a crisp. But I'd be interested to hear what others say because I have the same problem.

    Those look really good. What temp did you smoke them at?

    Is it ruined? Need advice

    Actually, because I ramped up the temp hotter than I normally do, the fat, along with the dry rub I put on it, charred to a really tasty and crispy crust on the outside. I had to scold my wife because while it was on the counter wrapped in foil while I prepared the other stuff, she kept coming...

    Is it ruined? Need advice

    Thanks Al, It's a bone in butt, but I did inject it. It smelled fine and the outside was just a bit charred from the initial heat and getting it up to temp. It was 6:50 AM and around 30 degrees outside when I checked it and started the fire back up. I think that had this happened when the...

    very little smoke

    I always soak my wood before putting it in. Smokes like crazy. But I'm using chunks directly on the charcoal in a Kamado Joe.

    Is it ruined? Need advice

    Hello all. First post. So, I smoke my Butts about 16 hours, low and slow. About 220 - 235 degrees. I usually start them around 11PM, go to bed, wake up, stoke the fire if needed and then let it cook until about 4 or 5 in the afternoon, then wrap it in foil and let it sit till dinner. Last...
