    I think you could do it on one of those massive Webers like Flay used to use on his show, but on a 18-21 inch kettle I have a hard time figuring out how to get indirect heat on a piece of meat that is the size of a packer.

    I’ve done probably half a dozen packers on a kettle. Just have to pick a smaller brisket (maybe 12lb) and turn it a bunch. I remember reloading charcoal being a pain in the ass and wrapping before the reload to avoid all the shitty smoke.

    just did a hot and fast last weekend

    held steady between 315°-325°

    didn’t rest it as long as i like so i didn’t get as much fat distributed as i would’ve liked, but it was a good easy cook

    Heads up for the posters who have access to the local Kroger style of grocery stores, North Texas Kroger’s are selling briskets at $1.88 a lb this week. I picked up a 16 lb one earlier normally priced around $65 and I got it for around $35 I think.

    If you are curious, download the app and you can see if there is a close one running the special.

    Timing for Brisket:

    Lunch is at 1pm tomorrow. Brisket was 17.5lb and I trimmed about 3.5 off, so it's now 14 pounds. Thinking an hour a pound at ~250, 4 hour rest.

    7pm on the Smoke
    1am (+6hrs) wrap around 165*
    9am (+14hrs) around 200*
    4 hour Rest
    Lunch at 1pm

    That still give me an extra 2 hours if it runs long and it'll be 16 hr smoke. Worst case it'll got to 1pm and a full 1.25 hours per pound and 18 hours then can rest for 1 hour and eat at 2.

    Thoughts?

    Start earlier IMO. More rest the better plus you don't have to stress about time. Just put that fucker in a cooler and it will be hot and ready at chow time.

    Or four, yeah, what’s works the best for your sleep schedule. Two weeks ago mine ran a little hot the five hours I slept. Finished up at 10AM and threw it in the cooler. Sliced it up at 530 and was still hot.

    Being pretty confident in the temp control on one of those. I would think you wouldn't have to worry too much

    Flat was done at 3am. 10hrs in.
    Point was only at 180 so I separated the two and smoked it for another 4 hrs and done 14 hrs in. The flat will rest for like 10hrs which has me a little concerned but it's in a cooler under heavy towels and with the point next to it for new heat

    Never separated the two mid smoke, so we'll see how this turns out. Here's a pre wrap pic

    I've never separated either

    When you say done you mean temp or feel?

    I don't think I've ever even probed the flat during a cook

    I usually temp probe in the thickest section of the flat before the deckle. Then when it gets to 195-200 start going by feel. The flat was butter smooth everywhere. The point was still feeling tough and I didn't want to cook the flat for another 4 hours

    Usually they are done together or real close

    Last time I tried short ribs it was a disaster. I just asked the butcher to go get me a four bone pack and I didn’t inspect it. Got home and the fat cap so thick that once I had trimmed it two of the bones were basically gone
