Cooking All Week

I am on vacation starting Friday.

To to keep from being bored while the wife is at work and the kids are at school, I decided to break in my WSM.

Just got back from Sam's with the brisket, butts and a nice pair of chuck roast. I have two enhanced turkeys that I collected over the holidays that are in the fridge starting the thaw.

I am going to have to build some side rails for the brisket. It kinda flops over the sides of the WSM.

Just sort of "bow" up the brisket. As it cooks it will shrink. (yes there is 'shrinkage') Made sure to put a little foil on the ends of the brisket because the heat is a little higher around the outside of the grates. You can take it off later if it doesn't come off as the brisket gets smaller.

Will do, Finney. I am thinking about using your #1 rub on one of the butts.

Cliff, I fold the skinny part of the brisket under itself when I do them. As it starts to shrink, it will start to unfold itself.

How much sand goes in the pan?

Do you line the pan with foil and then sand and or foil balls on top of that?

I line mine with foil and fill it 1/3 of the way (normal pan) then line 4-5 layers of foil on top of that for easy cleanup.

Lost some of the pics off of my card but here is the latest update. I made a wind screen out of sun screen. Got two birds dancing on the top grate. WSM has settled in at 275 dome temp and 235 grate level but I think I am picking up a little of the birds temp at the grate.

That WSM is one sweet piece of work. I kept going outside to check my reciever reading against the transmitter because I just knew it had lost its signal but it was right on every time.

The first cook was a great learning curve. I think I am going to like it a lot and was very happy with the results so far.

I set these birds on a BCC holder with no can so the smoke could get in there good. Dome temp held 275 most of the cook. Grate temp went from 235 in the beginning up to 265 at the end of the cook.

The skin was quite tasty. Wonder how it would have been on the lower rack?
