    Picked up a couple small briskets for a really good deal. I was going to do rib eye but forgot to take them out of the freezer before I left for pool league oops.... 

    Plan is to have this for sandwiches paired with some awesome bbq sauce that I got that some guy made locally here. Its chocolate habenero so good!

    I injected with beef broth and put a dry rub of brown sugar, salt, pepper and mixed a little spice I have called smoke house maple.

    I put a can of beer in my water pan because everything is better with beer right? right

    MES is at 220 and I have a mix of hickory with a little bit of cherry to feed it. I also busted up a charcoal lump and am going to put that in as well I know it wont affect the flavor much if at all but it seems to help produce a little more smoke.

    Going to pull and wrap with beef broth at 160-165 then finish

    will post more pics when done.

    As my friend Tom Petty would say. The waiting is the hardest part
    Every day you see one more card
    You take it on faith you take it to heart. The waiting is the hardest part.

    Here they are I pulled them at 195-196 Wrapped and towel around My guess they will hit 200ish during the rest

    Either way they were tender as could be when I probed the therm to check a different spot in them.

    Well I forgot to take pictures when I first cut and of the sandwiches (it was late and we had a couple beers in us)

    The sandwiches were really good (could be the beer talking too)
    We had all of the first one and some of the second one.

    Here is a pic of whats left after sitting in the fridge all night.
