Found a nice 3lb piece of center cut brisket in the "reduced for quick sale" section the other day and thought it would make for a nice ring of fire cook on the Jumbo Joe. Still had a good amount of coal left when it was done this morning, so I did a couple of pans of pig candy.

Started the ring with the "hair dryer"

That is a very nice kettle cook, showing the potential of the kettle to great advantage.

That's as pretty of a brisket as you can get from any cooker. Love the pig candy too.

I ran for 3.5 hours using my hands against the lid as the thermometer (I put the bottom damper to half about an hour in when I could barely palm the lid for a second meaning it was getting up into 300+ land). It was ready for wrap the first time I opened the lid. I checked it in an hour, and it was still a little tight. Another 45 minutes, and it was just right. Opening the damper and sucking a bunch of air in when I pulled the brisket got it ready for the dogs and pig candy at higher temps (could almost not touch the lid at that point so probably about 400). All told, I got about 8 hours out of the ring (moved the coals to the center at the end). Without opening the lid and playing with the coals, I could have probably got 8.5 to 9 hours at 250-275.

Nice job. In spite of being 20 bucks on clearance, those Jumbos are not toys.
