I've had trouble with my Computer . Been shutting down and saying the Registry was wrong . Called Microsoft and ranted at them a bit and finally got things set , I hope . After finally getting my pics located and uploaded , I saw I was missing my finish shot . Learned to get it off the Wife's Camera to my FB. I'm still a bit wobbly ( unlike Weebles , I do fall down) so my trusty Rollator is getting a workout. Enough chatting , my choice of Meat was a very large and really nice Brisket from Costco . We joined immediately when we used the guest pass. While browsing the store , we found we weren't renewing the Sam thing again. The Weather and Temp. was great for cooking the Beast. ( this was the 3rd of July ) . It took me 45min. to get the (mixed wood ) fire up and to temp. I took my Brisket , ( in the 'Cryo' wrap ) out to the Q-Bana , opened, washed/dried , seasoned with Kosher Salt and Cracked Black Pepper . I generously coated the top , sides and bottom of it , ( about half and half of each) and placed in a 225*F ,pre-heated Smoker and CLOSED the LID . ( I try to keep my lid shut unless there is a problem , or cooking different Meats with different finish times.). I got my Coffee , some water and a PB&J and probed the meat after 30min. . I set my Time Trio, on before the start of the Fire and it as I placed the Bisket in the Smoker ( just to see how long it took for everything ). I used the third time line for timing the refueling ( adding sticks) . I turned on some good 80's music , nested down in my chair and relaxed until I needed to get up for the Fire or to split some more wood. I got a few decent shots of the whole thing and am pleased to share my adventure with you . Thanks for taking the time to paruse my post . Pretty Smoke is right (look close ) rubbed and in . . . the Coffee to wake up Water , to keep hydrated a shot during cooking ( I know ,leave the lid shut , but wanted to show off this beauty ) average temp. finally , just as I pulled it . and now my Plated shot , bad for an Old cripple Man ... Thank you for visiting , have fun and . . .
