Such a long way to go, but I really feel like I’m starting to figure somethings out.  This was only my second smoke on the new offset, and so far, this has been the best flat (w/ a sliver of point a top for you technical trolls) I’ve ever turned out.

For this smoke, I did it all by feel.  No probes or temp checks at any point in the cook.  Done in 12.5 hours.  





Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    I'd miss the point, but damn that looks good.

    There was point and it was really good.  Anyone can nail point.  I judge all my briskets on how well my flat is.  This flat was better than a lot of point I’ve had.  The combined bite of flat w/ the sliver of point and fat was insane.

    I unwrapped this at my buddies barbecue shop.  He took this **** pic...I wish he would have had me tilt the brisket to show the bark.

    To be clear, I wasn't criticizing.  That little sheen from the fat layer looks magnificent.

    Thanks!  Next time, I’m going to give him my iPhone to snap the pic.  His cam was no bueno.  I took the flat pic with my phone.  Night and day different lol

    What offset did you get?  I haven't been on regularly for about the last month, so I'm sorry if I missed an earlier discussion.
