Neat aluminum tray tip...
Remember those aluminum trays with the built-in reinforced handles intended for turkeys and roasts??
It just happens to be just the right size for the raised inserts for the hotel trays. (Not to sit on the bottom of the tray, but on top of the aluminum tray itself.)
That's how the brisket will lay on the vertical portion of the Klose with a built-in drip tray. Why? Because the vertical section wasn't deep enough to accommodate the hotel tray itself.
The brisket has been on the pit as of 7:00 pm. est.
