    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 [​IMG].

    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 .


    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 . . .

    Finished product looks great!  How big was it and how long did it take at 225 degrees?

    Thanks all . My plan is always ,Patience. Find your time for the standard and watch the temp.

    Brisket was 17lb. and took 14hrs.

    Color was from having clean smoke for the whole smoke (babysitting , yes , but the end , marvelous... ) .

    And as always , Brian.

    In my BBQ life , time is a gift, and I use it wisely . Patience is my virtue .

    Have fun . . .
