     Making sure I can do it again.  Adding a beef back rib in the smoke with hickory and cherry.

    Bandera gasser seems to have a regulator problem.  Back to the trusty Masterbuilt 7 in 1 smoker.

     Dave, did you do the disconnect from propane tank, reconnect and then open the line slowly trick?  Sometimes opening it too fast will cause a problem.

    And tapped it a few times against the tank.  Got thin blue rolling of the masterbuilt, so good to go. Thinkink since the bandera got tossed across the back yard might need to replace some parts...

    Knowing you as I do, this is only one chapter in the saga.  You got until next August, then I guess I'll have to show you how it's done......now, if that doesn't put a spark in your behind, I don't know what will.  Get the Bandara fixed and get 'er smokin'.  Mini tornadoes and wind gusts blowing it across your yard ain't an excuse.

    My wife Dana had a great idea.  She stuck it in the crock pot this am with some broth and onions, and it actually is becoming tender.  Maybe 190 wasn't enough to break it down

    now I usually take my briskets to 205° even if I was slicing it. It just seems to workout better in the long run. Oh well maybe next time you will get it better. So don't give up yet.

    Makes sense. Last one I actually fell asleep and it ended up at 207 so lesson learned and thanks for the tip!  Wifes made the house smell awesome by putting it in the slow cooker, and salvaging it!

    So I was ready to feed it to the dogs, and my wife asked if she could put it in the slow cooker. Why not.  She added onions, beef broth and a clove of garlic and sent it on its merry way.  6 hours later it turned out awesome.  I made gravy from the broth for some homemade mashers.  Brisket fell apart picking it up, and was juicy!  Dinner pics attached!!

    Off the the smoker last night.


    My wife to the rescue.  6 hours in the slow cooker.


    She threw in the ribs too.  Can you guess who's plate this is?

    Sounds like a good teamwork save to me !

    That must be the wife's plate, because you didn't mention any kids.

    Just kidding,

    Yup the temp is the issue like Mark said. 205 is the magc # but the wife did a good thing and that looks like a great save
