Did a brisket last night with 50/50 dizzy pig redeye and cow lick. I used the partyQ Mickey let me borrow and I reall enjoyed it. I did it at 200'for 2 hours to try to get a better smoke ring (didn't work). Then I bumped it up to 300 and let it ride all night. These things really work. It dialed in the temps and held rock solid all night. Almost felt like cheating :)

    Sounds like a good mix - I like both of the DP rubs.   Another nice thing about the stokers, they really hold a stable temp when it's windy out.  Did a couple of butts through a hurricane and it held steady.  I'm certain I would've been fighting the temps as the wind keeps changing directions.

    @Cen-Tex-sounds like you are thinking about permanently going over to the "dark side".  Doesn't really matter how you get to the finish-line as long as you enjoy the ride!  BTW-looks great.  What time does the bourbon train depart the station??

    That train left at half time for my brother (huge Horns fan).  He just texted me "(female dog) ass Mack Brown needs to be fired"

    Unwatchable. Horrible. I turned it off and went shopping with the wife........At Sam's.........for a girl party she is catering. That's how bad it was.

    It was cool cap. Made a 75 degree temp adjustment with the push of a button. Went to be pd right after and some up and it was pegged where inset it.

    Great, now I'm going to have to get one. I just left harbor freight with one of their HD heat guns(I melted my cheapy one).
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I'll you this one to play with of Don Toyota says its ok. It does not have an XL adapter though. If the draft door is larger on an XL, you might have to find an adapter somewhere. Highly recommend playing with one to see if you like it. I'm sold.

    I saw his in his office one time. It looked pretty simple, unlike some of the other options.

    Took 1 minute to get it up and going. I've never used one before. Super simple.

    Looks great! So those are the thick slices of point you were telling me about...Brisket slicing level 2. Sandwich looks legit!
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Point (both ways) taken-and when I get too old I too shall move to the dark side.  I'm sure it beats the alternative :)>- At least that's what I've been told!

    That sammich looks awesome. The game....should have gone shopping for a girl party instead.  Dallas was fun, but that was painful.

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.

    I don't think the oven's with the 1 to 10 scale knobs are very popular anymore.  They all have thermostats now.  Nothin' wrong with convenience.
