I've been lurking here for a while, but this is my first post. First of all, I can't believe the wealth of information on this forum. All my reading gave me the confidence to go for the brisket today. Here's where I stand. Lit up the grill (Weber Kettle 22.5) around 6:45 this morning. Got the hunk of meat on around 7:30 Using the snake method. I've been pretty impressed with it actually, kept a steady 225 - 250 all day so far. Got up to about 153 IT, then dropped to 149. After silently panicking for a while, it took off again, and now we're back up to 155. Had to move into the carport since we're expecting heavy rain here in South Jersey later. Still humming right around 245 on the grill. My friends are coming in about 2 hours, but we've got plenty of beer, and everyone knows we'll just eat when it's done. I'll try to get some more shots later. Don't want to disturb the meat baby.
