Nice color, not as dark as I’d like but I was at a friends boozin so has to rely on my 12 yo to follow directions over the phone. He got carried away with the water pan so too much moisture to build a deep bark. Great experience for a jr pitmaster in training.

Great bend, and pull text was spot on. A great cook. My Irish couldn’t pull it out with a pathetic offensive game plan but a great night of brisket and football on the patio.
