13# full packer, with some excess fat wittled off, and trimmed to fit the MES30. Rubbed with Pepper, Onion, Garlic, and Monterary Steak Seasoning (because it was on the shelf), wrapped and refridgerated over night. Unwrapped, re-rubbed, and in the smoker at 7 AM @ 220 degrees, smoking Mesquite.




More to come.........

Down here in the soggy south rain happens.  Some of my best Q has been with rain drops hitting the pit.  I look forwards to up dates.

Hello my friend.  A man in the know.  Brisket and Mesquite!  Can't get much better IMHO.  I had to get the BIG box; after all, it is a packer.  Good luck with the rain.  Keep Smokin!

Nice thing about having a MES in the Rain is, if you cover the Electronics with a plastic container, I use one of them disposable Gladware tubs with a Brick on top, you can ride out the storm from the comfort of your favorite chair...JJ

Update @ 11:30

Look at that wonderful smoke! Thats serious and its not white!


Note the position on the vent.


Now notice the two burned up rows of Mesquite!


Thats 4 hours, going thru about 18 hours of pellets. Can you say "Breeze"?


I am at 140 IT, so the absorption rate is slowing down now anyway. There is enough pellets left to smoke it good for awhile if I'll leave the dang door shut. Now its wait for 175 to foil, sorry Danny, todays in not old school.

There is more comming!
