    So I am smoking a brisket from about 9 P.M Saturday to about Noon on Sunday. Longest smoke for me so far, and I was wondering, any advice to keep myself from being bored? I have enough cigars and bourbon, but I have a feeling that wont turn out too well if I just enjoy these two things...So along with my cigars and only 3 glasses of Makers Mark (yeah right!) what else to you guys do for fun? Any and all comments welcome!

    Oh, skip stones , or throw them at Cats. Read something , keep running into the house and making noise so someone else will come out and join you (it could happen). But my fave is find some friend and try to Bore them enough they will go get some more Drinks or something...[​IMG]

    No friends , make another fire and put damp wood on it and see if the neighbors call the FD , scratch that... cost too much[​IMG].

    But whatever you do remember to ...

    Well I dont like leaving my smoker. I'm not that confident yet. :) Hey Stan real quick, is it alright if I use a spritz to spray my brisket every once in a while, or do you recommend I leave it alone?
     
  5. That's what I'd be doing. Anyway, remember low and slow and PATIENCE!

    If you really need something to do - chart your temps on both the smoker and the meat

  12. I set a timer for an hour. If I fall asleep I will wake up. Check the fire and set the timer for an hour again. Rinse. Repeat.

    If I could find a timer that would wake me that far into the 30-pack?

    Good luck and good smoking.
