  1. Started off hot - REAL hot! Opened door on the ol' Smoke King and let er cool down, still running hot 1 hour in... gonna let it cool down to 190 before I do anything else to it..

    Me too!  Put on a brisket around 4:30am, fell asleep and went to check on it a little after 6.  Smoker was at 325!!!  Opened the door and let it cool down, also closed the air intake some more.  Now chugging along at 250.  I think I caught it before it cooked at that high temp too long.  We'll see!

    The smoke ring will tell the high temp story
  4. Here is the brisket after 14.5 hours in smoker, and 4 hours rest - still piping hot!


    Here is the tip, cubed for easy grubbin' - 


    Here is the flat, sliced for tender beefy goodness...


    All in all it was a good smoke - I forgot the stamina required to do a full brisket - but the product is always worth it!

    I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th.

    Looks like your pic links are on a secure site.  With the new forum, the easy way is to upload them directly to the site.

    I know what you are talking about I have been looking for a good photo site now for alittle while. Photobucket has given me a virus one time and alot of folks blamed it on the new changes that we here have gone thur lately. As far as I know you can post new photos straight from your computer now. So give it a shot anf you don't have to worry about sizing them either.
  9. Fixed the photos.

    Much easier than hosting to P.Bucket or whatever site...
