    Looks like a great start, thinking of doing a brisket tomorrow

    By far my favorite meat to smoke, think it is the challenge of getting it perfect

    That was last night around 7:30 or so! 

    it's 7:15 so just shy of 12 hrs my temps have been running between 220-260 I rotated the briskets every 3-4 hours just put them in foil.

    The small brisket is 12# it's internal temp is 160

    The medium # brisket is15# internal temp is 182

    And the large brisket is 17# and an internal temp 185

    what the hell is going on here ? shouldn't the smaller brisket be reading the higher temp?  Also at the old rule of 1.5 hours per pound the 17# should be done late afternoon but i'm only in it 12 hrs and 10 degrees from 195 ? i guess the temp could stick at 185 for oh 10-12 hours but i'm not thinking so!

    Not complaining they look and smell fantastic i'm just trying to get a handel on the new BBQ

    Addendum... turns out my meat thermometer is off !

    All that and I totally spaced off getting pics of the finished products [​IMG]

    Not as thick of a smoke ring as I would have liked other than that I was happy with the results.

    I did a lemon pepper rub base ,  then frenches yellow mustard,  then trager prim rib rub over that and  fresh coarse black pepper the wood was oak & pecan and charcoal

    Just remember the smoke ring does not add any flavor, it just looks cool!
