Things are running a little hot. Closing the vents to cool the smoker down a little.

Jan. 21, 2013 9:05 a.m.

Seems to be holding temp at 268.

Going to leave it here while the weather warms a little.

Jan. 21, 2013 9:14 a.m.

Temp is rising a little too much. Closed the lower vents to get the temp down.

Jan. 21, 2013 9:39 a.m.

Spritzed with apple juice to add moisture. Brisket is looking awesome. :-)

Weather is still a little cool and temp is dropping.

All vents are currently closed other than the top vent. Going to close the top vent a little to bring in a little more heat.

Spritzed with apple juice. Meat is looking awesome and smells incredible.

Very Good

Removed the brisket, foiled, and sprized with apple juice extensively so there is a pool in the foil. Double wrapped in foil.

Put back on the smoker.

Very Good

Cook Notes

Generally pretty happy. The rub tastes good, but I am still not sure if my injections are having much of an impact.

Temp was a little challenging to keep under control as it was quite windy out today.
