I put my first brisket on my LBGE last night at 11:30PM before bed. It's a 10.3 lb Choice packer from Sam's. I filled the Egg with BGE lump along with 8 chunks of cherry and apple, set my new Stoker unit to 235* and went to bed.
I woke up this morning and the brisket was in its stall at 156*, but it has now left the stall phase and is at 178* in the flat and 176* in the point. The Stoker Log software estimates it will reach 195* at 11:57am
The Stoker Log software keeps all the temp data from the cook which is pretty neat to look at! The brisket hit 154* at 3:45am and stayed between 154-158 all the way until 8:25am at which point it began to climb again. Between 8:25 and 10am the temp climbed from 158* to 178*
I must say that the Stoker is worth what I paid for it! The initial overshoot of my target was only 238* and the temp has stayed between a low of 229* and a high of 238*
I will update the thread with pics when I pull it off to wrap and rest in my cooler and then again when I carve her up at dinner time this evening before the evening session of the NCAA tourney starts!
