  1. Got my first brisket in the smoker. Been waiting all summer to do this. Rub is salt pepper onion and garlic. More updates to come.[ATTACHMENT=2272]20150808_070112.jpg (2,628k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

    I'll get my. :Coffee: and watch :drool
  4. So far going good. Little temp swings in the begining but keeping it between 220 and 240. I have a small char broil offset. Will meat temp climb in the beginning but slow down later on?

    You're living dangerously, briskets are rarely done on time.
  10. So true. Thats why they all know come over at 6 and dinner will be done when its done. We got appetizers.

  11. Bark is looking good. Now im wrapping in foil. This has been my longest smoke to date and im loving it.

    I wasn't going to go there, but sounds like you've got it covered.  Lets see, Sheridan, WY is probably on Mountain time so it is just after 7 PM as I type. 

  14. It is and the brisket is still in the smoker.

    Since it is wrapped you could always open all the vents and crank the heat up to finish it quicker if necessary.  Or keep folks drinking and fed with appetizers!

    Looks like your first brisket will be a winner.  Nice

  17. It was a hit. Small smoke ring perfect tenderness. The only negative things was it dried out quickly after plating and too much ACV in the mop sauce. Was juicy and fat rendered great. Cant wait to do another.

  19. Looks great.    What was your final total cook time?   And do you remember about how much it weighed?

    About to do my first in a couple of weeks (about 6.5 lb) and need to make a plan that doesn't have me getting up at 3 in the morning!   [​IMG]    Thanks.
  20. About 12 hrs cook tim for just under an 8 pounder.
