I agree, the only problem is that it's gone long before "forever". lol

One thing when you use the 'Boiling Bag Method", put a small towel or washcloth on between the bag and the bottom of the pot. I've had the bags melt on me in the past when I didn't give it just that little bit of insulation.

Yes, vent holes.... Don't ask me how I know that...

Very true...

The other thing is that if you are cooking to store (i.e. doing an extra brisket for later use) I've cut back on my initial cooking time. Remember you are adding heat and therefore cooking it a little bit more.
