    wrap my butt?

    My pork butts, cooker at 220f until internal hits 195f, then wrap in double foil, put in cooler and hold until I am ready to pull it, usually 3-4 hours later. Cook time is usually 16-18 hours. I start at 6pm or so day 1, then I am ready even if it is a lunch event day 2. When you wrap and put in a cooler, it stays piping hot, probably carries over into the 200-205 range (never checked) and keeps it juices.

    Looking good. are you leaving the ceiling vaulted and open ended gables for air ventilation?

    Fuel used

    I use both lump (Royal Oak, Rockwood) and Dennis's extruded. The lumps are easily sourced locally, any others would have to be shipped and that is just a mess to do so. Use a smoke wood from Fruita Wood when appropriate.

    Brisket fail - chicken success: a port-mortem

    wow, two baskets of lump!? Something is wrong there. I have cooked low-n-slow (200-225f) on my 23" for almost 72 hours on one basket; multiple cooks of course, shoulder, ribs, brisket. I also use the digi Q without issues. very troubling.

    BBQ for a group

    Excellent looking results - just disappointing the web is not scratch-n-sniff!! Regarding thermometers, are you using a BBQ Guru or some other temp control unit? it has a grate temp probe. Or you could be using a maverick for the grate temp probe.

    BBQ Controllers

    At first I did not use one, I did several low-n-slow pork butts with good results, but I did get up a few times overnight to check the temps, which sometimes I had to adjust the vents. I then bought a DigiQ with 10cfm fan. i set it, forget it and every cook is worry free and perfect. My BBQ Guru digiQ has not given me any issues since 2008 with probably 200+ cooks.

    Brisket Cook X4

    Looks awesome. I noticed your probe wires running out over the front lip. Why not have them run through the side hole built for running the probe wires?

    Jumped on board with Ali'32

    All of mine are without the locking nuts, they pre-date that feature, hence the silicone.

    I have had this issue, but since I have no use for that rear door, I used high temp silicone to seal it shut.
