El Ropo - definitely agree. I'm still getting used to this cooker, so I have been monitoring it a bit closer than I probably need to. I think the biggest problem is with my start up. I think that it's just consuming too much during that time. It's settled way down after the first hour or two.
The brisket is at 188* and I'm planning to leave it all closed up until about 195*. Then I'll start probing.
