Default Almost lost a brisket... not my idea of low and slow.

Was cooking a brisket thru last night on my WSM .... and almost lost her. Packed the fire ring full... and I mean full. 1.5 bags of Kingsford blue (13.8 lb each). Fired it off and the was up to temp @ 9:00 PM last night and the brisket saw the fire at that time.

At 7:00 AM... the fire was reading at 180*.... and was looking at freezing rain outside.

Chit... grabbed another bag of Kingsford and my bucket of rock salt just for the occasion to sprinkle (not on the brisket) but to dust and season the porch steps. (Learned that mistake the hard way... cracked my ribs a few years ago from sliding and bouncing off those steps before. Was cooking a brisket back then, too! ) Gingerly added a generous amount to the steps before I do another instant replay.

Meat was @ 175. Whew!!!! There will be pron today!!!
