Hi all,

I'm getting ready to smoke my first brisket on the KJ Classic and wanted to know the best way to do it if I don't have the Sloroller. Is there something that can 'easily' be done in place of a Sloroller that would result in the same or similar results? I'm assuming the best I can do is to use the deflector plates in the lowest position + drip pan (in this case, I just have aluminum serving trays). Do I want to fill the drip pan with water (and if so, how much?)?

I have a V-rib rack to help with getting it to fit (it's just under 17lbs so I think it'll need it) and also picked up a Billows (and damper) to go with the Smoke X4 my buddy gave me. I haven't done any to the KJ otherwise and have one of those OnlyFire imitation kick ash baskets. I plan to use B&B Oak Lump and a few chunks of post oak that my friend gave me to try out.

I haven't used any of this or done a long smoke (well, longer than several hours, and that one I screwed up badly...overcooked ribs) so just looking for some guidance so as to not screw things up here haha.

TIA!
