Great, glad to hear that you're issue seems resolved. Never would have thought the pan would make a difference but I've seen stranger things.

Contrats BamaInDc! Feel free to post any questions or pics of your smoke.

Glad to see another Smokin-It owner in my neck of the woods  ;D

Glad to hear you're making progress. I still haven't tried to smoke any cheese yet (I have the smoke plate) but hope to soon.

Brisket is one of the tougher meats to smoke and you're ballsy picking it as your first but you pulled it off!

Kudos and my hat's off to you sir. 

I'm planning to smoke a brisket this weekend (my first one wasn't very successful). Did you serve yours with any dipping or BBQ sauce?

I was going to recommend what Zed said about pulling a few degrees early also. Should be OK, just do everything you can to insulate to meat while resting.

Looks great! I'd like to smoke a boneless turkey breast to slice for sandwiches sometime soon.

Like Joe said, dry wood is the main cause of flare ups. The wood dowels provided with the smoker are of great quality, if I'm reading your post correctly you have tried to smoke just using the provided dowels by themselves and are still having flare ups, correct?

I don't believe the off center element would cause any issues as long as it's not touching the wood box but it can't hurt to get Steve a call and let him know about it.

How much wood you adding at a time? I have heard of people with flare up issues wrapping the wood chunks in foil and poking holes in the foil.

Wow, that's cool but definitely out of my price range  :(

I assume the wood would go inside in the back by the grate and the slide out pan shown is to catch the ashes?

Only in the mind of a Cowboys fan are they America's team  :P

Glad to see them sign Romo to a long term contract though  ::)
