    Thanks for the tip. I hope (and believe) you will be right. I will get that thing started this evening a lot earlier than I had intended.

    I don't even know what I don't know yet.

    Welcome to the Pit! Enjoy the fellowship and the fun here. Boston butt has been my low and slow of choice, but now that I have moved to Texas I'll be entering brisket land. So, I am on a new learning adventure.

    Welcome to the Pit JH-KC-to-PHX ...

    Entertaining friends and family with BBQ is a great pleasure.

    Now... Let's discuss that 12 hour brisket cook.

    If you're cooking a full packer, 12/15 pounds, with the flat and the point, 12 hours at 225° isn't going to cut it.

    If... You agree with the majority of the members in the Pit that a brisket needs about 2 hours of cambro time to redistribute the juices in the meat then 12 hours is not enough. If you're going to cook hotter than 225° you might be alright. If you wrap during the stall, you might be alright. If you power through the stall with a higher temp you might be alright.

    I plan all of my briskets cooks as an 18 hour project. Most of them take 14 to 16 hours at 225°. I put them in the cambro and serve them perfectly cooked and ON TIME EVERY TIME.

    Howdy from AZ

    I will start with Thank You! This site truly IS amazing!!! I can't tell you how much I have learned over the years, and shame on me for not joining earlier. Thanks for the work you have done, and for what you continue to do.

    I have fallen in love this hobby/passion in the last 4-5 years. It is a great way to waste a Saturday and share a great day with friends and family.

    I recently bought a Humphrey's Battle Box. It is my first fantastic smoker. I learned on a "don't buy" smoker, and then went on to an electric as the "don't buy" one wore me out trying to keep the temps stable. When the electric died, I seized the opportunity to go back to charcoal, but now on a great cooker. I am now re-learning everything I thought I knew. Friends and family thought what I was putting out before was really good, but now it is even better (I think). I have not gone "public" yet.

    I have now banged out a few cooks, and will be doing my first 12hr brisket cook soon. My old way, thanks to Meathead's faux cambro "cheat" and my adaptation of it, was able to solve even the worst of a bad smoker's problems.

    Again, thanks to all.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
