    Well. As you know, I, No Peek 'n got a new MB XL gasser, and SoSlow got a new  Camp Chef Vault gasser, and live down the street from each other (sometimes that's a bad thing) hehe.! J/K, He got a 7lb'r at Wally world and, I got a 11lb'r +/-, at Stater bro.(cheaper per lb) up here on the hill,(he's bent.! cause I didn't tell him they were back in stock in the meat counter) I'm on his $*%* list now (Whoopee)[​IMG]Blah.Blah....We are going to fire up the gassers this weekend and both do a Brisket Cook off. I'm going to mix up some off Jeff's Rub I got from him (paid for) and wont share with J.T, not yet at least for now..and he is going to mix up his own concoction, (unknown at this time).and we are tossing in the slabs Sat AM, and see who's Monster will turn out with hopefully good results. and with Qview on both parties...Cross your Fingers....Break a leg J.T...


    O' By the way, I helped Create... this Monster!.SoSlow

    I'm in the same boat as your. A few of my neighbors use their grills and there is one guy across the street who always uses a charcoal grill but other then that I am the only one around here that I have seen who smokes anything. They use to always some buy when I was out there smoking but now I mostly smoke on the slab I poured in the back yard so they don't know I'm smoking most of the time now. Good luck with your cook off and have some fun with the neighbors.

    [​IMG]I made ranger72 finishing sauce, family loved it! and pulled the brisket at about 185 for slicing ( family wanted to eat at 7:30pm.

    all was good family liked it. I wanted to keep going till we got to 195 and try a pulled brisket but family came first.

    [​IMG]SoSlow, That looks Killer, Nice smoke ring, and the dipp'n sauce looks Tasty too. OK, My Turn, I got up BEFORE noon (very funny),8:30a to be frank, pulled the Beast out of the frig after it being put to bed the night before all dusted up and vey lightly trimed.

    got it on the smoker at 9:00a


    put it in at 230* for the first 4 hrs,then I went and put the meat probe in, had to ajust the depth a little to find the coolest reading, just NEVER PULL the probe back out(juice fountain) Dumb move stupid... I got my smoker dialed in from 221-223* good and steady for 6 1/2 hrs, it dropped a few times to 217

    but went back to the original temp.(sweet.!) I love that Maverick.! it stalled at about 158 for about and hour then stalled again at 176 but then started to inch up 1* every 20mins or so, i only replenish the Hickory chunks 3 time during the smoke due to i kept a very consistant TBS for about 2 1/2 hours.[​IMG]

    took a Peek (just once to take a pic, and put another log on the fire). and to check to see if the juice wasn't getting on the bottom of my smoker.[​IMG]

    got it sitting nice on the temp, just sat back and watched NASCAR, and having a few Suds to sip on. did I mention i LOVE the ET-732, where have you been all my life, the bag is to just keep greasy sticky stuff off. oops the Pic went to the top..

    So I didn't wrap at 165*, I wanted to smoke it all the way through start to finish (old School) and then the temp Flew up at the last 11/2 WOW.[​IMG]

    I just tapped up the temp for about 30min , cause it got real chilly ouside and the smoker started to drop big time,

    Well time to pull......[​IMG]

    I took a little pinch off the end, but I wrapped it in  plastic rap and let ti rest for a hour, then into the Frig, I wanted it to firm up so I woundn't loose anymore juice, and wanted to  try out the new FoodSaver and get nice firm slices...here is the end results, it doesnt look very Sexy, but I slowly heated up some for dinner last night and Holy Mother Of Gun Oil...!!!! fall apart tender and the flavor is on Point, a little more fat than I would like, but I think it really added to the flavor and Moistness...Thanks for Peek'n at my Qview folks...And It was a Hoot cook'n with Ya'll SoSlow...

    and all packed up for Sammies down the road.....[​IMG]
