Hey y'all! Picked up an Akorn about 4 months ago, and today, tried my first brisket. Got a small 4 flat (choice) and did half salt half pepper and let it rest overnight.  Smoked with apple at 225 on my Akorn. I got a PartyQ yesterday, and was very very happy with it's performance. It took a good bit longer than I expected, at almost 8 hours for 4 lbs. Overall, I was really happy. The flat was pretty moist and tender (7 out of 10 probably), my bark was outstanding, and the flavor was great.

 

Thanks for all the help!

Looks perfect. I haven't tried a brisket yet but looking forward to it.

That turned out great! In fact, it looks like you cooked it perfectly. Usually people undercook them a little on their first try. 

 

The best way to get that 7 to a 10 on the moistness is to turn up the heat, foil it, or both. If it's not tender enough, cut it a little thinner than you did here. 

Yea, good call. I didn't crutch, and I'm planning on doing them at 275 now.

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
       
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
       
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      Soon I'm going to smoke a 12lb. brisket on my Big Joe using my new
      FireBoard
      . I plan on cooking overnight. Would I need to wrap, or just let it go for 12 hours or more?

      First cook on Joetissorie on the Akorn, and yes it fits perfect! I used a combination rub of KC's and Dinasour BBQ Cajun Foreplay. (Dinasour BBQ is the BEST BBQ restaurant in NY State) I also made a paste with same ingredients and rubbed under breast skin and inside cavity. Akorn running at 400-425 deg. Amazing flavor!

      Hi all,
      Just got an Akorn 16820 and mother nature decided to go all cool and wet on me. Looking forward to trying this thing out.

      So I have myself an Akorn for about 4 years. Through a couple moves while building a new house, it was pretty neglected... sat outside, uncovered through winter, rain, etc. Needless to say due to the metal build, it rusted something bad. I ended up getting rid of it and decided I'd see what the Weber Kettle hype was all about. I picked myself up Kettle Master Touch.......... wow...
       
      I freaking hated it. Was horrible to keep temps. Took forever to get up to temp. Was terrible to use with lump (as it fell through the grates)... just a bad overall experience. Cooked on it about 4 times then sold it. Now... I live in a VERY windy area. Like 10-15 mph winds almost constantly.... so I'm sure that played a part... but it was no enjoyable.
       
      I decided to pick myself up a new Kamado Joe Classic from Lowes for $650..... I'm in love.
