The big weekend is finally here. My lil. brother requested BBQ for his birthday. I picked up a packed brisket from Walmart and a bone in shoulder. Guys we're talking about 22 pounds of meat [emoji]128525[/emoji]. Friday morning I trimmed and coated the brisket in the gospel by the meat church. Beautiful color on it. And the shoulder got dizzy dust sprinkled all over it. I woke up at 4 this morning. Took the meat out of the fridge to bring it up to room temp. Fired up the wsm. It was 17 degrees when I started this morning. Currently holding temp at 230. Stay tune group. It's going to be a long one.

Well I'm about 7 hrs in and I can say. It's been fun. The temp just now got above freezing. It still holding at 220-230 finally. Got the sun shining on it. Haven't lifted the lid as bad as I want to. The meat is temping at 176.6. Can wait to see the finish product :grilling_smilie:

Brisket is done. Hit and internal temp of 195. I pulled it off wrapped heavily in foil. And in the cooler with newspaper it went. It's going to get a good nap. Dinner ain't till 7

That will be perfect. Resting for 1.5-2 hours will do it good.
