    Some friends asked me to smoke a brisket for their anniversary party so I'm smoking this one so I have one more under my belt before then.

    16lb whole packer brisket.  Trimmed the fat down to a bit less than a 1/4".  Pre salted with Kosher salt yesterday.  Rubbed with Big Bad Beef rub and put it in the smoker at 5:30.

    Here's how I lit my charcoal...

    Big ol' pile of coal!

    Lit a little pile of coal.

    Added the little pile to the big pile!

    Here's a shot of the Brisket when I put her in.  At that time the smoker was at 219F and the brisket was at 50F.

    Two and a half hours in and the smoker is at 240F and the meat is at 99F.

    5.5 hours in.  Brisket is hovering in the 140s for about 2 hours.  At 147 now.  I like this Pit Pal app, lets me make a chart of my progress.

    Here's a pic...
