I'm still pretty new at smoking but definitely hooked. I have done all short smokes so far (8 hours or less). I really want to try brisket and later pulled pork. I work long hours through the week and have a small farm that I catch up on weekends. Tending a brisket for 12-14 hours is just something I can't do. I know a smoker isn't a slow cooker. I learned the hard way that my baby backs have to be tended. Just wondering if any of you folks do an overnight smoke while you are asleep. I have a MES30. Wood chips burn for about 45 minutes using the factory wood setup. I may be asking the impossible here.
