All my cooks had been fairly short before this attempt. I had a 5.5# CAB choice flat from Edwards. The rub was 2 parts coarse black pepper, 2 parts kosher salt, and 1 part granulated garlic. I used Ozark Oak mixed with four good sized hickory chunks on an LBGE. Platesetter was legs up and had a drip pan with some apple juice.
Time and grate/meat temps were

pulled to FTC at 4:30 and sliced at 5:45
It came out alright, and pretty moist, but seemed a bit salty. However, it disappeared quickly. I'll have to hunt down some Byron's for the next one. I also think I'd pull it a few degrees sooner next time.
I also got a chance to use my new FoodSaver v3820. It worked very well.
