    Yep, too low. Lowest I would start at is 225* grid temp, then adjust as needed in the morning based on current status.

    What time are you trying to eat, what is the weight, and what is your target completion time?

    I roll 250 overnight, but I don't put anything on until after midnight.

    If it isn't broken, then don't fix it. Several ways to get it done so just go with what's worked for you in the past.

  • Pantry....I am with you on the low and slow.....I always start out at 215 and after about 12 hours, bump the temp up.......I never sauce the meat and most people eat it without adding any sauce

    Start low, bump or steady isn't going to make any difference. I'm in the strong and steady camp and sauce doesn't come near my brisket unless we're making chop.
