Default Coming to you LIVE Tonight! - My 2nd Brisket attempt on the Weber Kettle

That's right, this thread will be posted LIVE with real-time updates! With the required FCC delay to approve my pictures of course! Apparently they are worried I might post something inappropriate. The delay is just a few minutes, so it might as well be live.

Here is the current image from the camera looking at the Kettle all set up for tonight's cook.



The One Touch blades are closed as far as I can get them and still see a slit when looking staight down upon them. I have pushed a full size aluminum pan into one side of the kettle to serve as a drip pan. I filled the pan with a gallon of water to work as a heat sink, and maybe even to provide moisture into the cooker, but I'm not going to divulge that particular secret and leave it up to you to figure out on your own! What I will say is that the first time I cooked a brisket in a Kettle, it ran hot until I added water to the pan, so it seems to have a positive effect on temperature control.

I filled the other side of the pan in with a layer of charcoal, and then placed in six small chunks of Pecan heartwood, and then covered those with charcoal up to grate level. I left a spot on the right side to place six lit coals when I fire up the cooker. Last time I used a dozen coals to start the fire, and felt that was too much. So I will use six coals this time.

Let's take another look at that camera, shall we?



One thing I forgot to mention, I put some charcoal dust in the water pan. This is important.

The cooker will be fired up around 11pm Central time tonight. Until then I won't have much to announce for you, so enjoy the camera feed. I'll be back later with more.

Hoping I can learn from you tonight, Chris. After my first brisket attempt on the kettle yesterday, I need all the help I can get.

Yes. Don't you see the charcoal and the wood?

I notice that all of the charcoal is not 'K' up, also that the 'K's that are up, and somewhat randomly jumbled in there. Are you, I mean, I am not saying that, well, I am really, saying that you are not going to get a clean light, even burn and a good Minion preheat, if the easy light 'K's are not properly linked.

Are you crazy, throwing up in the face of both tradition and common knowledge like this?

He'll just Photoshop the results, and continue to make the noobs think he knows what he's doing.

The sun has set. Let's see how that camera is holding up.



Hmmmm...

Looks kinda yellow.

I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

I blame Marty Leach. I know that was clean water I put in there originally.

I have noticed that in order to properly align the endpoints of the K's, that they need to be in a somewhat jumbled looking pattern. It's not easy making sure that each and ever end point for each and every K is touching another endpoint of a different K.

So I said fark it.

Well, that wasn't in my original plan, but I suppose I could hold it warm in the car as I head out that way. Since I would be driving West, I can't leave it in the back window like when I went to Maryland a couple weeks ago. I might have to put it under the hood, next to the engine somewhere.

Keep the beer cold for me!
