Solving 2 problems by creating FSM
« on: March 24, 2017, 04:08:26 AM »
OK so I will recognize that this has been done before, it  wasn't until I had a problem that needed to be solved that I put it to use for me.

Problem:
How do I cook a massive 16 lb brisket that will not fit on any cooker? split it? no way
what do I do with a gifted very beat up C code used as a fire pit, parts were good, kettle was trashed?  Thanks @mattlillis73 this went to good use

You make a FSM (Franken Smokey Mountain)



I am getting some Nomex that I ordered prior to this to seal the door, now I will be applying it at the base of the kettle to seal  gap and protect the WSM







I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

Larry beercan special right there. You can use aluminum foil until you can get the gasket worked out.

Right that was the plan until I found out that the Nomex will be coming in today

OK so I decided to get this going this morning, one concern was the temp at such a high level.  well I am not concerned.  Vents are 2 open, 1 half.

Weather is about 40 deg and rainy.



*Note as I type it is climbing to 240



Look at how big this brisket is


as I type this, the temp is @ 255 so now I need to dial back the bottom vents.

Looking good so far!
I love thinking about someone coming out to your garage while you were cutting up that kettle and asking 'what are you doing?'
Well I need to cook this big ass brisket...

Not as I was cutting it up but my wife just came outside and laughed at the setup.

Nice phallus smoker. Wouldn't this work without cutting the kettle bottom and keeping the vent open?

phallus smoker, funny.  I think it would work but I wanted to have an open bottom so the drippings fall all the way.
