    I have a family get together tomorrow and they requested a brisket. I went to the store and only saw one left. After some trimming it's about 18 pounds! Let the fun begin
    had to put a little foil on the ends where it bumped the sides of the smoker but wanted to keep it whole

    Is that a drum? Or Weber S.M 18.5? Good luck 👍. I would fix whatever I wanted for dinner and they eat that. 😉

    It's a drum. I'm sure the brisket will fit in a few hours. I love a good long low and slow brisket. Think it should be done in a day or two
