    Hello all!
    Not new to smoking but new to electric smoking. Love smoking in Austin, TX--own a home there. I'd travel to Austin 2-3 times a year to get my stash of smoked brisket and then return home to CA where I work. Now, my travels to Austin are limited, and I don't want to short supply my family and friends with my TX smoked brisket, so I am trying this new MES 30. I hope that they turn out as good as the real TX smokin' brisket.
    I am enjoying all the good feeds in this forum and would love to learn more, as I also would like to venture outside of brisket in this smokin' life.

    Hello smokers!

    Thanks for all the advice and guidance to my first-time smoking.

    I just pulled out three slabs of brisket from my new MES30 after 12 hours at 250 degrees and with IT at 189. I wrapped them in foil to cool. I'm not sure if tender enough. One felt tender with the "fork test". I'm not sure about the other two. Attached are pictures.

    I am thinking of putting them wrapped in foil in a standard oven for a couple more hours since I don't need them until much later. Should I do it?
