This is a 9# packer, Marinated overnite in Moores and Beef broth with a little rub on it! I'm planning to serve around 5pm! I know it's going to be close but if it takes longer Oh Well ;-)

It looks like I have plenty of time to make your house. I'm in the Jax area and heading towards you now. Oh heck maybe I should finish my sausage and pork butt first. Then I'll be alittle late so save me some of that pure goodness that you too are making.

Just to help a brother out here.

Raptor, that looks like there is something wrong with it and I think you better pack it in dry ice and ship it up this was so we can investagate it for flaws. There is several members close here that can offer an expert opinion.

BTW the plate looks great, but there sure isn't much salad there.

Nice job man.

Looks Great Raptor!

Seems, like mine, your plates are too small for much of a salad!

I've put them in at six AM before and they still weren't done in time for dinner Sunday night. I smoke at 225F and never open the door until it's time to take it out.

This time however I had good luck and finally managed to turn out a brisket that I really liked. However, as luck would have it, I put it in at midnight so as not to run out of time as before and the thing was already up to temp, 200F, and ready to come out by 7:30 AM or so. Go figure! 

It really does all depend on the particular piece of meat you happen to get.

Oh well, I just double foiled and double coolered the thing and we had an earlier than usual Sunday dinner so it was no biggie. I was just really happy to finally get a brisket that I considered better than the local Q joint puts out. The wife seemed to be pretty happy eating it too. In fact she's munching down a brisket sandwich for lunch right now.

It finaly hit 163 and wouldn't budge, I was going for a 165-170 but I couldn't fight it anymore! So I foiled and took it to 190*, Then into the cooler for almost 2hrs. This is the 2nd brisky ever for me and it was Great! Had some nice sammies today for lunch
  I couldn't have pulled it off without all the info I have gained from SMF Bretheren! Thanks to all and once again sorry about the sub par pics getting a new cam. SOON!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Bigticket, Sorry it took awhile to reply, I've been out of town for a week. Went to the FBA funcook!! Had a great time and plenty of Q. But yes I make my own chipotles for my sauce!
