    Got it just thawed out in time.

    Can see by temp it was mighty cold as I put it on.

    This thing I'm using a minion and have the intakes almost shut completely.. it's still over my 235 range I like. It's hot here today and those small chunks are making a difference.. flare ups really impact the base temps I want. 275 in there now. Lol not a big deal but I can't just shut down all my intake air.. 🤔 maybe I will leave a crack of air ..

    Nice to put some meat on and go do chores and shopping . I don't think I could deal with a Stick burner for 100% of the work..

    It was good brisket flat slices. I'm single so much more than half of a brisket I would need to give away a bunch. I take cheesecake and brisket to work but there are so many people there that some get left out. I can't afford to take in $50 worth every time.. Lol I just hord it to myself now mostly. 😂

    Thanks.. forgot to say it's just ground pepper and coarse sea salt. I loaded it heavy on the fat side. Little less underneath. Hope the smoke will still penetrate decently for another couple hours..

    Point 3 hours..

    I think I'm going to try Mac N Cheese on the ECB today.. I have two 8 oz blocks of Kraft extra sharp cheddar . Do it in the aluminum pan after I wrap my point. I can stick the point on the second rack to finish and put the Mac N Cheese on the top rack.. 😬

    GO LIONS!
