Looks excellent and appears with the smoke ring you got plenty of smoke to it before switching to the oven, nice work!
I was pleased with the smoke ring. I was a bit unsure how it would turn out. We are in the beginning of a very cold snap. Wind blows hard here in Kansas almost all of the time.
Two words come to mind - "wind break".

Good work , looks good from here.

Have fun and . . .
I am doing my first brisket on my char broil gas smoker 13 pounds should I use water in the water pan or not how long will it take I'm living in Calif outside temp is 60degrees

It depends on what temp you cook it at.  I was around 225 to 240 on average.  It took about 9 hours total from start to finish. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
