Pork on top; brisket on bottom PICs -- happening now!
2 Attachment(s)
I'm two hours in.

2 - 6.5 lb bone in pork shoulders, injected and rubbed on the top grate
1 3.5 lb brisket flat on the bottom grate, rubbed

The pork has been on for 2 hours (started at 7) and I just put the brisket on at 9am. I reason that the little 3.5 lb brisket won't be done before the big shoulders on top and I didn't want to risk having any uncooked pork dripping on the brisket (hence the staggered start).

It snowed here last night and its cold! Little WSM is holding temperature strong at 240-260. I've been adding quite a bit of fuel to keep it going. Lots of stoking too.

Here are some pics so far (2 hours in)

Our weekly cliffhangar. Nice start, brother!

And the 12 o'clock check in. Man it smells good out there.

I'm refraining from mopping b/c the injected pork seems so moist. The second pic I tried to focus down to the brisket. Brisket is 157 degrees internal temperature. I'm not sure whether I should foil it or just keep it down there?

I'm holding pretty good temperature considering it snowed and its freezing rain right now. Gotta love MD.

You'll have a tough decision to make... pork or brisket... go for both :-D. Looking forward to the finished product.

Looks awesome, and the focus on the brisket through the top grate makes for a pretty cool shot! Crappy weather here too, had about 4 inches of snot on the driveway this morning so my blower got its first workout of the season. Would have something fired up but gotta work tonight, lookin' great

Don't foil the briskey, you get enough moisture on the lower rack from the water pan. Let it ride till done and develop a nice thick bark.

Thank you sir! No foil for me!

You have got to have both on one sandwich. I had a one from a restaurant and it was great. I agree with you on MD I was out side last night cooking chicken on the BGE, man was it cold.

Still rollin' --- Pork butt is 190 degrees; brisket is 179.

Smells good for sure.
