I've done an all day brisket but never an all-nighter. I read somewhere that you're not REALLY a veteren until you've done the all night brisket smoke, it's absolutely PERFECT here in West Michigan and as of tomorrow AM I will no longer be a brisket all-nighter virgin!! Brisket is rubbed, wrapped, and waiting for temp. I use a Char-Griller smoker which I just further modified with fiberglass rope around the edges. Pics to follow!!! Plan to use charcoal and hickory for flavor. Wish me luck!
