I think i did my 3rd brisket like that. Dont worry man, this is ALL trial and error anyhow. Im not a rich man myself so wasting 30 dollars or more importantly being a food waster was a big deal for myself too. Good thing is....the next weekend is only 6 days away!
2008 WSM, 2000 Simpsons Smokey Joe, 2001 Platinum Blue Kettle, an 3 more i still have to identify.
