    Hey all. New member. Kent from Quincy, IL on the Mississippi River. BBQ has been a passion of mine for over 45 yrs but I consider myself still a student. There’s a lot I still have to learn and perfect. Currently use Weber Performer, Summit charcoal, Weber e-310 Q and Smokey Joe. Just did my first brisket after all these years yesterday. Turned out wonderful. Looking forward to learning more from all the bbq brotherhood on this site. Would love to hear about tips and recommendations for controlling temperature over a 12+ hour cook for brisket. Thanks.

      Welcome to The Pit Kent. The best advice I have for smokin' a brisket on a Performer is to get a Slow N Sear. That will give you the control you want, (with a little practice).

            Just curious... What have you had to do differently in the higher elevations for your bbq? Do you open the vents more than you would normally at lower elevations?

            Swug - I really haven't had to make any conscious adjustments for either grilling or smoking due to altitude (6300' in my case). Of course, I had to be sure that the lower PBC vent was set correctly (7/8 open). In the kitchen, it's a different story for many things because water boils at about 200 deg. F here ... so I often have to adjust cook times accordingly.

            Swug Spent 20 years up in your part of the country. Believe it or not I do miss the winters🤣. Nothing wrong with BBQ from up that way either from my experience.

            Welcome to the Pit from Dallas! I cook on a Big Green Egg and if winds gust on and off you will need some kind of wind shield at the intake or some type of electronic controller. I use a Smobot and before that a PartyQ.

              Thanks for the tip. Purchased a ThermoWorks Billows and Signals. Pretty much closes off most vents to the changing breezes.

                      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.

                      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!

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      kareubequ bbq smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
