I'm new egg owner -- about 6 weeks old now. My family has asked me to do the brisket for Christmas. Will do 2 packers but now I'm starting to doubt myself if I could come out with good brisket for fear that I may ruin it. Cannot happen on Christmas day.
Reason being... I've been reading many posts about BGE and how hard it is to maintain low temp (either it dies or go off with high heat). To boost, I've had this experience with my BGE with low heat and it went little too high fast but I was around to avert the problem. Just that this time around, I need to start the night before and I do not want to be up and about all night.
FYI - I've been using my weber for a long time and I have no problem setting up the smoker. Leave it alone and forget it. Can someone assure me that I will be fine leaving it alone all night? Lets say I manage to maintain it for 225 for an hour, then I can go to sleep all right? I don't have my weber anymore. Sold it a couple days ago. Stupid me to do that.
Or should I be safe. go with pulled pork? Or buy ATC? Which I am afraid is a waste of money. Never had need for it for couple years with my weber.
