First wsm cook 17 pound packer
« on: December 22, 2016, 06:59:07 PM »
Ok I did a dry run anyway to test it out and see how well I can control the temperature. This thing works great. I  had very little smoke seepage from anywhere on the bowls to the cylinder. I adjusted the fit of the aluminum door as closely as I could. Fits very well now.
So I went to Costco and picked up a 17 pound packer brisket. It measures up 22 inches long. I had planned to cut it in half anyway so this is not a problem. Rubbed it down and returned to the refrigerator. Then i decided I would figure out how much Stubbs fits in a charcoal ring. I loaded 185 briquettes and 10 small blocks of Oak randomly throughout the pile. Along with another 15 briquettes in my chimney ready to fire. Now I just need to go to sleep, let the rub work it's magic and fire it up at 5am tomorrow morning.

Yup I counted them.
Just my brisket OCD😨
And curious what the capacity of the charcoal ring was. Got up at 4 pulled brisket from the fridge and let it rest an hour on the counter while I slept 1 more hour. The point and flat hit the grates @5am
The flat is below.

I forgot to mention in my original post that I am running the water bowl dry but half full of aluminum foil balls about 2" round. With triple foil over the top with a depression in middle like a wok to keep fat out of the fire. Works nicely so far. Hopefully it makes cleanup a breeze.

I cubed up some of the left over last time and added to a can of beans. It's really incredible stuff for different ways to eat it.

How did you run you vents and how much lit did you start with?

This cook is for tomorrow's dinner. I'm gonna cube up some of the point for burnt ends and some will end up in the beans I am making tomorrow. Didn't want the pressure of trying to time a meal being prepared on a wsm first cook. It went great. I started 15 briquettes in my little chimney. Then dumped them in the center of the fully loaded charcoal ring. Top vent wide open. All  bottom vents open about 1/4 to 1/3 pit temp was monitored at grate kinda swung a little but temp on dome was 225-250 entire cook. Should hold better after gumming it up some more. Overall this thing is solid. I wish I had not waited so long to buy one. Love it.
