  1. Hi, I followed the steps in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Qm-nm4Z7wA&t=15s and I my brisket turned out dry and dense. I'm hoping you can tell me where I went wrong: - ~5.5 lbs (pre-trimmed) of Prime Angus grain fed brisket point from https://shalhoob.com/butcher-shop - trimmed as much of the silver skin off as I could - trimmed off hard fat and tried to leave 1/8" to 1/4" of fat - seasoned 24 hours prior to cook with 50/50 coarse black pepper and kosher salt - used Kamado Joe lump charcoal and two medium chucks of mesquite hardwood - ambient outside temperature was low-mid 80s - waited until grill came up to temp and smoke was mostly clear before putting meat on - put meat on fat side down - cooked in Classic III using sloroller, on the lower level rack - cooked with water pan on grill - used Thermopro two probe digital thermometer (1 probe at grill level, 1 probe in thickest part of brisket) - grill temp ranged between 245-270, but mostly 250-260 - took ~6.5 hrs to get to 170 internal temp - wrapped in foil at 172 - took ~1.5 hrs to get to 203 - at ~203 a wood shish kabob skewer did go through meat, but still felt a little resistance. At this point I pulled it b/c I was concerned about over cooking - kept in foil, wrapped in towel, put in cooler for 1.5 hrs The brisket had bark and a smoke ring. Pencil thin slice passed pull test. But it was dry and dense. The attached photos are from the day after the cook and the meat is cold. Where do I go wrong? Thanks!!
  2. Here's the third party supplying the Hyperbolic Inserts to KJ https://desora.co/projoe/
  3. Regarding the Classic III, when using the "Hyperbolic" insert, how do you add additional fuel when doing a low and slow cook? The half moon shape of the "Divide and Conquer" grill and heat diffuser allows for adding fuel if needed, but the Hyperbolic insert looks to be a solid unit. Looks like one would have to remove everything; meat, grill, & insert, then add fuel, then re-assemble.
