First off let me say.

I posted about this time a year ago. Asking for help with my first smoke.

everyone here was outstanding.

Throughout the year I have continued smoking everything and lurking here.

I think I have managed to merge recipes for rubs sauces marinades etc from everyone like Dutch Meowey, SoFlaQuer and on and on.

i know pics are appreciated so here goes (or so I thought, web issues)

Dateline Mckinney, TX
7:30 pm CT

12lb Packer on the smoker.

20mins in it is pouring around here

Trying to get in 6 hours in Pecan smoke and Oak Lump Charcoal

Then to the oven over night, then the cooler until dinner

I'll post the rub I've concocted and the Mop

I think my wife is glad its raining, so I won't be so apt to go check the temps.
Got the pit heaten up now, got a 12# packer goen on quickly and a 6# flat and 2 BB racks going on sometime later, usen meskeet logs i got from a friend ,
I love/hate the Hawkeyes

You took the beloved Hayden Fry from my alma mater

North Texas, we havent been the same since.
Now that was a coach, but im starting to like Farentz, after 10 years.

skys getten kindda black here, hope that rain holds south, by the way Dude, i'm just up in Nevada.
Play not to lose, kinda like the Cyclones have in the past. Kinda nerves about this Chizik, he might be a coach.

Starting to get some lightning, may have to put the beer down and find refuge for the pit soon.
Well good luck to you guys

so far so good on the brisket

about to open the chamber for the first time to mop

its been about 2 hours
I'm pushen a hour on mine, what do you mop with, i useally wait till 10 -12 hours before i even open the lid, but i also run a little pan with water/juice/beer or what ever, i think i should have filled it ,opps forgot
That sounds taste, may try that cuz i use a variation of that rub at times.

IT'S RAINING why did'nt someone tell me it was sposed to do this, probly won't listen anyhow, not rainen that bad, just enuff for me to drag the pit in the garage and wait it out to drag it back into the drive.
As for the rub heres what I use

It actually works on brisket and baby backs for me

my friends and family love it, for what ever that is worth

¼ cup Garlic Powder
¼ cup Chili Powder
¾ cup Turbinado
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup dark brown sugar

Whats Tony's? I haven't seen old bay around here.

WD, i know, don't rub it in, i'm a bit of a diehard
Buzz.. try looking at your local seafood store. They should have old bays, its pretty popular for seafood boils and such. Just a suggestion. Good luck with yalls briskets
Ya ,went to get groceries at Fareway and they have both, i have both now. Thats kinda odd for them to have it too, kinda exotic for Fareway
