    Cooked it for 9 hours at 225*. Jeff's rub and sauce. Used Hickory and Apple wood. This is my first Qview attempt.
    This is my new King Kooker (Gas) Smoker. Upgraded the thermomenter, and seasoned it last weekend.

    Here it is going in.

    After a couple hours. Cooked in a little shed I got to stay out of the wind. Worked out real good.

    Almost there.

    Wrapped it in foil after 5 hours, and once done, I wrapped in towels and put in the cooler for 2 hours.
    Sliced up. Very tasty!! And tender. Look forward to the next one. Appreciate all the info you guys provided on this site. Very big help.

    It doesn't get any better than that! Nice and juicy. Be careful smoking in the shed. Looks a little smoky in there.

    great Qview . Did you inject it ?

    Be careful cooking inside any place espc with a gas smoker , the fumes can back flash on you along with the smoke .

    Thanks fellas. I enjoyed it and appreciate all of the info. you guys provided on making it a success. I did not inject this one, but think I'll try it on the next one.

    Yeah, cooking in the shed was probably not the brightest thing I ever did. I did open up the windows a bit, but was still a little smoky.

    Now, what to cook this weekend.[​IMG]

    As close as I can figure ~

    The Lord bless you and keep you;
    the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you;
    the Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

    Yea your sged thing wasn't the great thing that you ever did but you have a lot of brain cells. Now that hood thingy looks like the trick for getting some ventilation in your shed. Now lets move right to the brisket. It looks amasing and looks like you have been smoking for half your life too. I would be proud to serve that meat on my table also. [​IMG]just have to go out to you for your first brisket smoke and quite the success also.
