Overnight Unplugged

So a couple firsts for me. One, brisket on the egg. Two, overnight totally unplugged. No party q, no maverick. I set it to 250 dome at 8pm, put the brisket on at 1030, just got up here at 6am and it was holding 250. Though I might have to calibrate the needle, my 6.5 lb flat was only 145 degrees. The original plan called for a whole packer and to wrap at 6am. So I wrapped it up and here I sit. It's going in a chili the balance of which is pictured below as well. Oh also, this is only salt and pepper another thing I've been wanting to do.

    So the brisket came out like wood. But it turned out fine cut up into the chili.
