Started it last nignt, Sunday, at around 11:30PM. Got a great buy at Walmart.



Here it is rubbed and ready to go after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.



And now it is 9:00AM. It has been stuck at 176 since 7:00AM.



I sat with it for the first 2 hours until I got the smoker temp stabilized at 127. Got up at 3:30 and checked and it was at 130. Got up again at 6:00 and it was still at 130. I couldn't believe that the temp stayed solid all that time.

More to come later. I also have a huge pot of Cowboy beans on the stove and I will be making some ABTs later in the day.

You're right. Lack of sleep. The smoker stabilized at 230.

 That sleep thing will get you every time, 230⁰ sounds more like it. Looks good. 


 I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to smoke for the weekend so I took the easy way out.

 I went over to a friend’s house, he did a whole lamb on a spit over an open fire.

 Oh yeah, life is good!

I used a rub that I concocted. It is not overpowering, but does add a nice flavor to the meat.

Jim's Brisket Rub

1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
3 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons oregano
1,2 or 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper (depending upon how much heat you want)
