    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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      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.

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
