    First Brisket ever and with the Slow-n-Sear

    My first attempt ever at brisket and with 22.5 Weber Kettle, SnS, Kingsford Blue and cherry chunks. Started with a 10 lb Prime Brisket from Costco and did a Dry brine 2 days ago then dry rubbed with black pepper and BBR this morning at 12:30 am. The SnS is holding Rock steady at about 225 at 1:30 , alarms are set on the Igrill so time for some shut eye with fingers crossed.

      Slept like a baby and the SnS Rocked it All Night Long! I took screen shots of the Iphone graph at 1hr intervals (not downloaded in order)this morning at 6:30.

          Thanks Jon Solberg , I thought of a good reason to get to hook up with you and Huskee sometime if you guys are interested. To split a case of Brisket, My sister can get case prices of Prime Brisket at Costco for I think $3.29/lb with cases running about 70 Lbs and she would drop off to me on there way up to the cabin at Hubbard Lake. Although it will cost me some slices vacuum packed for her Lol. They go up north on a regular basis and I deer hunt up there. Win Win!!

        Looks great, congrats! How's the range on the iGrill? Is it Bluetooth or wi-fi?

          billg71, It is Bluetooth and the range is not very good IMO, my grill is out side my back door and it will lose connection once i get past the kitchen and into the living room.
          good thing my bedroom is on the same side. Lol!
          I do like the graph option as you can scroll back and look at the entire cook if you don't lose connection.

          Thanks, that's what I was afraid of. Our house is a little less than 60' long and the Maverick won't pick up in my office at the opposite end through 4 walls. Bluetooth would definitely be a no-go.

          Wish someone would make one of these that uses wi-fi! I guess the battery would be the limiting factor, though.

        Wow that's impressive, Powersmoke_80 . Thanks for taking screen shots of the temp curves. Rock solid is the perfect description for that kettle temp during the cook.

        Let us know how that tasty-looking brisket turns out.

          Thanks Kathryn, I do like the graph option as you can scroll back and look at the entire cook if you don't lose connection to see how she ran. With the alarms set for any malfunctions I slept well and hope to eat good.

        Gotta love sleep when a big hunk of meat is getting smoked.

          I have to thank David Parrish for that, the SnS is awesome especially for a newbie with charcoal.

          Looks wonderful Powersmoke_80 ! About how long did your SnS run before you had to add charcoal ?

          barney, I added charcoal at the wrap so approximately 10 hours when I slid the hot ones to the corner and added about a 1/3 more. I think i could have waited because it spiked up to about 175 and I had to choke it down for a bit. Not sure if I should of waited til temps were dropping to add.

        Everything looks great. I love those Prime briskets from Costco. I picked one up on Thursday myself. I gonna do that beast on Friday night for a co-worker to serve on Saturday. I love doing those overnight cooks. No that I have the confidence to actually get some sleep while the BRIZ is ripping on the smoker. Nice Post.

          Thanks Spinaker, I do too now! We only have Sams by me and they only have choice flats at twice the price. But my sister lives an hour and a half south and they have Costco around them.
          She is gonna get tired of supplying me with brisket Lol, unless I keep her interested with sampling a like this.

          Ive got a Costco about 10 mins from my house so I'm lucky!! IT seems to me that in the winter the prices fall even more. I bought a few last January for $2.89/lb I'll take that any day. So tell your sister to keep an eye open during the winter months. These prices may only be that low in the winter because I'm in Minnesota and most people shut down their smokers in the winter. (Not me of course) Powersmoke_80

          Thanks Spinaker, I will tell her as I'm in Michigan so it may hold true here as well in the winter. I am currently building an 80 gallon tank stick burner that's going to have a double wall fire box with 2" ceramic blanket insulation so I can cook all winter long.

        I didn't realize whole packer Prime briskets pooped out peppers whilst you smoke 'em. Need to remember that.....

          LMAO! I had a small bag so I decided to throw them on at the wrap to dry for taco seasoning.

            Powersmoke_80 feel free to head to www.ABCbarbecue.com if/when you have time and upload some of those pics to the Disqus comments, the kettle shot and sliced shots would look great there! I think you are the first person to do a whole packer on the kettle w/ SnS. When Dave gets back from his awayness he will be loving this.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            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.
