Hello Everyone, It's a beautiful, outstanding Friday afternoon, here in my area of the good old U.S. of A. and it's a great day for smokin' brisket. 71 degrees, clear blue skies, no clouds, no wind. I have to have four briskets ready for this evening and I started early, early this morning, well, really late, late yesterday, Ok, middle of the night. I have pushed 'em through the "stall" and am getting ready to apply what we call down here in my neck of the woods, " The Texas Crutch". You can certainly see by the cover of the chimney, what state I live in. This here smoker was custom built by a company in Houston, Texas, called Pits by JJ. They will make a smoker to your specs or one of their specs. This smoker has been smokin' along at a comfortable 200-225 degrees for a bunch of hours now. And, as you can see the finished product looks very good. A couple of more hours and these packers will be ready for the table. You can cut 'em with a fork. THE LONE REALTOR SMOKES AGAIN!
