Actually got it on already.  My first briset.  My wife is pretty doubtful that it will turn out right but I told her it would be alright 'cause I got a real-live Texan telling me how to do it.

    3 hrs in and it's at 139.  That seems a little high.  The dome is reading 275.

    You haven't hit the stall yet.  If you were like me on my first overnight brisket I was up every couple of hours checking on it. 

    I just put a 12.5 lb beast on 20 mins. ago.  The Stoker has it under control for the night.

    1st brisket done with few left overs.  Overall I'm pleased but will try Travis method next time.  The flat was drier than I wanted. The burnt ends rocked. 

    Maybe I'm just spoiled after trying the sous vide bisket at the eggfest in Winston-Salem last week.
